Quiet, classy and comfortable, The Westin Jersey City Newport beckons as a waterfront haven in the Jersey City financial district. Soaring public spaces and designer decor team up with tranquil guest rooms that afford Big Apple views. Spend a day meandering through the adjacent mall or take the train one block away for a fast 10-minute escape into Manhattan. A heated indoor pool provides year-round refreshment, while the fitness center offers variety and room to move. Open for lunch and dinner, the restaurant is as wildly stylish as the lobby lounge.

Business stay

Our office is at 30 hudson street. It is about a 1 mile walk. The hotel itself is very nice, updated and well appointed. The only negative was that i received a handicap accessible room where the shower was a walk in and the shower head was only 5.5 ft up so you would have to bend down to shower. Ask not to be placed into that room type unless required.

Torn Between Three and Four Stars

If I brought earplugs, I'd give it a four, no questions. It's new, clean, has amazing views of Manhattan, is comfortable, and the shower is better than home. Problem was, the noise. The AC cut on and off abruptly and loudly, and clanked when on. Additionally, from my room on the west side of the hotel, I was able to hear the garbage being picked up at 5 AM. So my sleep was less than awesome. I mentioned it to the lady at check out and she said I could have called and gotten earplugs. So be forewarned... but enjoy.

Could be better

I think the front desk staff could stand to use some training in customer service. I realize when you come off a sold-out night, you're stressed, but you should never make a loyal customer feel that. When I checked in, I was not greeted with a smile, nor was I appreciated as a customer. First impressions are everything, and I was unimpressed.

Good enough for "not NYC"

I was just there for one night. My first time staying across the river rather than in the city. It was convenient for a quick trip over to the city as well as for driving further south the next morning. Didn't get a chance to enjoy the hotel amenities but the bar was a great spot to have lunch and watch the game after check-out.

Having a car is great if going out late, but parking is somewhat pricey and the train is a short walk away.

Downtown Jersey City Hotel

FOOD is WAY over priced. Selection was limited . Restaurant was extremely noisy. I would recommend staying at the hotel and finding another place to eat.
