Waterfront style and class only minutes from Manhattan

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.

Highlights

  • Bright, heated indoor pool with skylights, whirlpool and spacious fitness center
  • Dramatic public spaces with the attractive Half Moon Lobby Lounge
  • Most rooms have waterfront and NYC skyline views
  • One block to PATH train into Manhattan and minutes from the Holland Tunnel and New Jersey Turnpike
  • Adjacent to the 1.2-million-square-foot Newport Centre Mall

Rooms

Warm earth tones soothe mind and body in 429 plush and stylish guest rooms at The Westin Jersey City Newport. Most look out onto views of New York City or the Newport Marina. Doze off on a pillow-top mattress with crisp triple sheets, down blanket, luxurious duvet and five pillows. In the bathroom, look for a dual showerhead, signature bath amenities and curved shower rod. Request a Westin Workout Room for a 375-square-foot, fitness-inspired room with choice of either a LifeFitness™ Treadmill or Spinning Cycle plus DVD workouts and strength training equipment. Premium Rooms feature a curved wall of windows for panoramic Hudson River views. Both wired and wireless Internet are available (fees apply).

Great anytime

I have never had a bad experience at this Westin. It's my only choice when I come to Jersey City. The hotel is excellent and the staff terrific.

Fantastic view of Manhattan

Evrything at the hotel met our needs and were within walking distance including the Path Train into New York. We would have never got this quality of hotel in New York at this price.

Weekend Get-Away to NYC & Jersey City

Hotel is located accross the street from the Path Train (Newport) which is perfect for getting to NYC. Very nice hotel with clean room and good restaurant (Fire & Oak). Parking is located right behind the hotel, but is $22 per night. Seems like for $250 a night it should be free for guests. Good bars and restaurants within walking distance in Jersey City. Only bad thing about hotel is they allow pets. Dog barked when owners left their room (early am) and worry about potential feas. Other than that hotel was good.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Don't get rental car at Newark airport if only going to NYC or staying in Jersey City. Take cab and then use Path Train or Light Rail to get around.

Excellent Stay at the Westin in Jersey City

After a long day, the comfort and service of the Westin in Jersey City was outstanding. I will be coming back in a few weeks for my second week of a three assignment. I look forward to the same level of comfort and service.

Great location

Typical experience for this type of hotel. Clean, well maintained, great location. Only complaint is that you have to pay for WiFi in the rooms which is ridiculous in today's climate. Also, for families you should note that there is no fridge, although one can be rented for $25 per stay.

Be sure to take the PATH train which is across the street from the mall - avoid the light rail if you're trying to get to Manhattan. :-)
