Location was what we wanted, outside of Manhattan but close to public transportation. Views of Manhattan, Statue of Liberty, etc. were incredible. Room / apartment was clean, comfortable and nice size. Only visited for two nights, Friday - Sunday. Not a hotel, better for those visiting for extended periods. No hotel amenities, vending, ice, room service, etc. Parking in garage next to building at a daily rate.
The apartment (and it is a small apartment, rather than a room) was very nice. It is on the 21st floor, overlooking Greene Street, Sussex Street and Grand Street. Very large windows offer plenty of natural light into the living area.
Everything was very clean, and the kitchen has a large refrigerator (not a mini), as well as a dishwasher, stove and microwave. We did not use any of those facilities other than the refrigerator, which was cold and nice. Double closets with some hangers, and a four drawer dresser, meant excellent storage room for our clothes.
The location can't be beat, two short blocks from the Hudson and less than 5 minutes from the Exchange place PATH or ferries, both of which will take you quickly to the City.
My only complaint is that the bed was not comfortable enough for my bothersome back. It was way to soft and it pretty much moved every time the other person took a deep breath. Many people, however, won't be bothered by it.
Communication could also have been better; there were no instructions for things like the TV, pool area (never did visit that, didn't know where it was) and how to leave the room upon checking out.
A bottle opener and corkscrew would be a nice addition to the kitchen - be sure to bring your own if you need them.
Would definitely recommend and would stay again.
This is a wonderful hotel in a great neighborhood, Newport in Jersey City. The room was spacious, comfortable and clean. There are many restaurants and nice walking path by the water nearby. Best of all it is a short walk to the PATH train which makes trips to Manhattan a breeze..no need to drive to NYC. Hotel staff was very helpful with transportation and directions.
We stayed here as it was close to our wedding venue, however it is worth it for anyone and any reason. Easy to get to from NYC with UNBEATABLE views. Truly unbeatable...You have to be outside Manhattan to get the view of Manhattan, yet so close!
