Sometimes, to get the best look at Manhattan, you have to be outside of it. And Hyatt Regency Jersey City doesn’t disappoint. “On the Hudson” is right. In fact, the hotel is built on its own pier, jutting out into the the river, and offering breathtaking picture-postcard views of the city skyline and New York Harbor. On the inside, it’s what you’d expect. A sleek, modern lobby, leading to 350 rooms with Hyatt Grand beds, clean lines, and luxury furnishings. And that view. Wining and dining comes courtesy of Vu and Vu Lounge, a twin restaurant and cocktail lounge that also offers a private dining room—all with a panoramic view, of course. As you’d expect, there’s 24/7 fitness center and an indoor heated pool, and yes, both also offer that same view. Any isolation anxiety you might experience from staying outside of Manhattan is quickly put to bed when you discover that the hotel is practically on top of Exchange Place PATH station—there is even an entrance inside the building. Plus, the Light Rail stop is only two blocks away, while Paulus Hook ferry terminal offering services to Midtown and FiDi, is only a short hop down the promenade.
Jersey City—and Jersey City hotels— are probably not on too many bucket lists of vacation destinations. While it has a vibrancy and historical appeal all of its own, the chances are you’re looking to stay here for these reasons: 1. you’re on a business trip; 2. you’re looking for a cheaper alternative to Manhattan room rates; 3. you’re waiting it out for an early-morning flight from Newark; or 4. you’re stopping over for a game at MetLife Stadium.
Might we suggest another reason—the best goddamn view of Manhattan you’ll ever see! Plus, it’s a short commute over the Hudson to explore the best Manhattan restaurants and the best Broadway shows. Whatever the reason for being here, JC offers a variety of different properties, rooms and rates worth checking out.
