Quiet, classy and comfortable, The Westin Jersey City Newport beckons as a waterfront haven in the Jersey City financial district.

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.

Super Digs

The Hurricane of 2010 put a huge damper on any sight seeing plans. The hotels amenities and close proximity to various eating and entertainment establishments more than made up for the weather. Instead of going into New York City we were able to explore Jersey City and Hoboken. We spent some quality, quiet time enjoying the view of the NY Skyline both at night and through the storm.

Westin Jersey City 12/27/2009

Front desk was understaffed, there were long delays checking in and out. Check-in and check-out processes were unnecessarily complicated.

Great place

This is a great hotel conveniently located near the Newport/Pavonia PATH, so it is very easy to get into downtown/midtown NY. The wired internet connection is superfast. Only two downsides: The hot water was tepid during the peak morning time, and the breakfast buffet only runs on weekends.

Very nice hotel

Great hotel with a good location. Went into the city daily. The location to Laguardia was too far. Newark was fine.I would stay here again,especially if I drive to NY.

Amazing trip!

We went to NYC to celebrate my 25th birthday and I have to say, I was very much impressed with the hotel. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, gave us tips on how to save money (take the subway instead of a cab, restaurants around that were cheaper than the one at the hotel, etc...), our room was spotless, the bed was VERY comfortable, the bathroom is big and with all utilities (magnifier mirror, hair drier, plenty of towels, etc...). We saw the pool but didn't get the chance to take a swim (who wants to swim when you're in NYC anyways!!!), it's gorgeous! We'll definitely be staying there again when we go back in April!

Decent Hotel

Nice hotel, though complementary guest services were nonexistant, and maintenence staff members were loudly conversing outside my door at 10pm. Information was difficult to find -- the room didn't have the usual binder with information on where to find food, what was included with the room, etc. Instead, there was a glossy room service menu and a brochure for upgrading bedsheets and pillows. Plus, parking was pricey and Wi-Fi was not included. Too much nickle-and-diming for a four-star hotel.

There's a short walk to a shopping mall, which is helpful if you want to grab a quick bite or do some shopping without the ordeal of getting your car out of the parking garage.
