Westin Jersey City - Newport Review
4/5 479 Washington Boulevard
Jersey City, NJ, 07310
(201) 626-2900
Rating: Chopsticks of Pleasure
A nice new SPG Cat 4, a potentially cheaper option to a Manhattan hotel
To get to this hotel from the south, Google Maps told me to take Washington St, but it turned out to be one-way southbound so I had to go west to Marin Blvd north and then approach from 6th street. When I arrived at 1AM, there was no valet in site (much like the W at Union Square) and there were also a lot of people loitering outside. Apparently there had been a false fire alarm so there were a lot of disgruntled vacationers milling about the lobby slowing things down. I requested a Westin Workout room upgrade and was initially told they were all booked but they managed to find me one anyway.

The room was cleanly and tastefully decorated with typical classic Westin styling. The room was large and pretty new too. The bathroom was pretty big and had a nice double shower-head. My Westin Workout room had a treadmill, exercise ball, free weights and exercise bands. The Westin Workout rooms are on the lowest guest floor (6 in this case) so as not to disturb others which allowed me to get a run in the comfort of my own room at 1AM without fear of angry complaints.

The hotel does not have a shuttle to take you around Jersey city but despite the dodgy valet drop-off, valet service was much better. At $28, they usually had my car in 5-10 minutes since the garage was in the same building. Due to a mix-up, they only charged me for one night instead of two.

Overall, this was a very nice Westin and I would definitely return if staying in Jersey City. It's a viable cheaper hotel option for Manhattan as well, though you would need to allow extra time for Holland tunnel traffic.
