“Excellent Hotel”
Reviewed September 7, 2009

If you're looking for a great hotel that offers value compared to staying downtown NYC then stop looking - this is the one. The hotel is beautiful, rooms were big, and the beds are fantastic. The staff were very helpful. No complaints - a great stay!

Yes, I reserved through priceline, yes I could not get formal confirmation of room with great view and two beds when I emailed the hotel. However, upon check-in, we were given all we requested by a very, very helpful Westin employee. Thank you Casey !!! And thank you Larry.

Hotel is as described in many positive reviews before. Beds are incredible. PATH subway around the corner.

Tip1: If you plan to buy a Metrocard for new york subway make a small calculation since PATH costs 1,75 each way. If you buy a multiple ride metrocard it works both on MTA and PATH. A one or more day Fun Pass doe not work on PATH.

Tip2: Breakfast: Cosy near Pavonia PATH is very affordable and not bad at all
Tip3: New York NFT (Not For Tourists) is a very detailed little NYC guide

I absolutely adored the Westin, Jersey City. My stay was delightful and I really felt like no matter the request, the staff helped accomodate me. At night while sitting at the lobby lounge I found myself conversing with the Outlet Manager: Joshua Levin. He was extremely personable, and very helpful. He suggested some really nice places for dinner the following evening (a restaurant in which I did enjoy very much) and even helped me with the directions. He was constantly on the floor making sure everyone was being taken care of, and he was laughing and chatting with his bartenders which only leads me to believe that he is not only well-liked by guests, but also by his co-workers. Overall, the Westin surpassed my expectations and I would defintely recommend the hotel to others.

We stayed here for 2 nights in late August. Could not have been happier with our choice! I indicated that it was our anniversary, and they chose a great room with a beautiful view (well worth it to pay the smal charge for a room that looks across the River to NYC!), and also, left us a thoughtful gift--champagne and a beautiful dessert tray!
Our room was large, very clean, and extremely comfortable! From the front desk to the valet, everyone was welcoming and friendly; always glad to help in any way.
Very nice amenities, upgraded bed linen on a comfortable bed,and no noise from anyone other guests, at any time.
Perfect place to stay to hop over to Manhattan, but we enjoyed Washington Street (Carlo's Bakery, shops, and restaurants), and searching for Frank Sinatra "places", so much, that we did not venture over to NYC this trip.
Don't miss a stay at the Westin Jersey City; you'll enjoy every moment of your time here!

We picked this hotel for our 6 night stay (or rather, Priceline picked it for us) based on cost. The hotel is a comfortable place to stay, near Manhattan, but quiet even with the building construction outside between it and the Doubletree hotel. We stayed in two rooms on the 8th floor; one a king, the other two double beds.

Parking is available, both valet and in the adjacent Newport Mall. The Westin has a dedicated self-parking area in the mall parkade for $22/day. We left our van there for the duration of our stay and had no problems.

The 5-minute proximity to the PATH subway (Pavonia-Newport station) to Manhattan is a significant plus. We travelled by PATH daily to various points in Manhattan and it was convenient and inexpensive (a 10-ride QuickCard is $13). Many PATH stops are close to MTA subway stations. Bear in mind that weekend/late night service is less frequent than weekdays.

The hotel itself is 6-months new, and very clean throughout. The rooms are much larger than their equivalent in NYC. LCD TV received several Hi-def channels. The showers have a dual head and good water pressure. And the bedding was indeed heavenly. There were some minor service lapses, but nothing to get worked up about. Free daily USA Today newpapers, Wifi (in the lobby), and granny smith apples.

We thought the Westin was an excellent value overall, and would recommend this hotel for anyone who doesn't need to be in NYC proper.

This hotel isn't much to look at from outside, but inside it is beautiful. We spent one night here on our way back to NM from the UK. We were surprised that it was a 20 minute $50+ cab ride from EWR, but honestly, it was worth it. We called the day ahead to see if we could check in early, and when we arrived around noon, we were able to go straight to our beautiful room. Severely jet-lagged, all we wanted to do was eat and sleep. We were on the 4th floor and had a view of the construction next-door, which was mesmerizing for our 3 year old boys! We felt like we were in a cocoon, however, because we never heard a sound from outside, the hallway, or adjacent rooms. The beds really are heavenly (and I am extremely choosy), and food in the restaurant was quite good, and, though spartan, the pool is large and clean. My kids and husband went for a swim. The art and color scheme in the rooms are all earth tones, impressionistic, and very soothing. Just what we needed. What impressed me most about the Westin, though, were the eco-friendly touches. Not just a sign in the bathroom saying to please re-use your towels, but compact florescent bulbs in every light (even in the halls, I checked), and a recycle bin next to the trash can in our room. The one drawback was the commute to the airport, and my one criticism is that although we called down for a taxi the morning of our departure, it never arrived, and we waited 20 minutes for one. Oh, and the service in the restaurant was a bit slow, even though only two tables were taken.

We arrived early on July third and check-in was excellent as we were able to check in at about 1230pm. We got what some would consider the "Priceline room" . Not too high in the building, the eighth floor I think with a view of the construction site next door. No problem as we did not spend too much time in the room. This is a very nice hotel with comfortable rooms,flat screen TV etc. Our only complaint was the maid service. The glasses we had used were not replaced and in fact were left where we had left them. It was obvious that the room had net been vacuvmed and the toiletries were not replaced. Others have raved about the service here but that was not our experience. This is a great location for a short subway ride into new York and we have stayed in this area before. I would have to say that I prefer the Hyatt .
