U Can do better than this place
Check in delayed 1 hour, no AC in halls & gym on a super hot day, young teen age kids running all over the place.
Terrible gym - 3 treadmills in poor condition and no elpitical machines, no towels or cups for water in gym.
Hotel seems understaffed. You can stay in better run places with comperable rooms for less money in JC.
The one plus here is location, right next to path and shops... other than that I wouldn't stay here again.
If you need to save some money in NYC it's a fine choice
I stayed at the Jersey City Courtyard on a business trip to lower Manhattan because it was about $100 less per night than comparable hotels in NYC. Even though it was not a great hotel it was worth the price difference. I am a Marriott "elite" member and believe I was given a nice room because if it. The room I was in was huge, with a full size couch, a window that opened, and a large closet. It was right next to the ice machine but the soundproofing was excellent: I did not hear the ice machine or the traffic on the street I faced. There was a vent in the bathroom that ran constantly and made noise, but I did not notice it when I closed the door.
Like most Courtyards, the bed was not very comfortable. Thin mattress, some squeeky springs on one side of the bed. The pillows were very soft. This was the worst aspect of the room and honestly, too uncomfortable to be acceptable.
The front desk staff was inconsistant. A couple were very friendly and always smiling, but the majority were simply there to do their job. It was always a wait to ask a question, and the phone would sometimes ring and ring, even at 10 PM, when I wanted to set up a wake up call. There were always people in the lobby: I think there may have been a tour group staying when I was there and the tour group was very demanding on the desk staff. I did not eat in the restaurant, because there is a coffee shop and breakfast place immediately across the street and a food court in the Newport Mall, also across the street plus a five minute walk.
I rarely comment on housekeeping, but the housekeeping that took care of my room did an especially good job. They left me extra coffee the day after I used both the caf and decaf in the room, and left me extra skin cream when I used that. Even better, they made the bed without wrapping the sheets and blanket under the mattress when they saw I did not sleep that way. It was a nice touch.
It is a thirty second walk from the PATH Pavonia/Newport station to and from the hotel, and a six minute PATH ride to the World Trade Center PATH station. Very convenience to downtown and you literally see the hotel in front of you when you exit the PATH. It is definately easy to stay here and work/visit New York City.
We stayed at the Courtyard Marriott in Jersey City in November 2004. Our room was large, with two double beds, and faced Manhattan, so there was some view of the Financial District. It had predictably good Courtyard service and creature comforts. It had an indoor pool and hot tub, which was especially nice for muscles worn out by walking around New York. It is right next to the Pavonia/Newport PATH train station, which is one stop from Manhattan, so it is super convenient for getting into Manhattan. It is a block away from the light rail, which we took (with a transfer to the bus) to Liberty State Park, where we caught the Circle Line Ferry to the Statue of Liberty.
Pricy for what you get
Stayed there for 5 nights in August, '04. Was expensive at $179 +tax for a double room per night. There is a tiny bar that opens, when somebody is around but closes quickly, the pool is very small, as is the gym. Eating in the restaurant is not recommended, very expensive (breakfast not included in the room rate, $17 each) and not great. There are several places close by for breakfast. Location wise, you are in the financial/office district, so if you're there for business it's good. You can easily get to Manhattan by the Path train (50m from hotel) or water taxi, 100m from hotel, great trio and faster way to Manhattan.
Overall, very average, clean and expensive for what you get. No real complaints though.
Nice hotel, good location
I chose this hotel for its price and proximity to NYC. It's very easy to get to NYC from this hotel (as long as you don't mind public transportation). In addition to the Pavonia PATH station which is next to the hotel, there are also nearby stops for the Hudson Bergen light rail and ferry.
The hotel is clean and the staff was VERY friendly and helpful. The room was large and my son enjoyed the pool.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a nice, reasonably priced place to stay. We did think breakfast was a bit pricey (it was good), but of course it's your choice whether or not to eat at the hotel.
Designed by Business Travelers???
Not without a bar! Was there for a wedding and they would not allow drinking in the lobby. The rooms were small and overpriced. The breakfast buffet was also way overpriced and didn't offer a large selection of food items. Excellent location but wish I would have stayed someplace else.
This was our first stay at this hotel and it wont be our last.
The location next to the Path train station is so convenient.
If you are flying into Newark or driving this is the place to stay.It beats staying in a Manhatton hotel especially if you are driving as you leave the car
and take public transportation.
The hotel is very cean and I had no problems other than the hot tub was out of order.
Best of the jersey hotels
Compared to the doubletree hotel a few blocks down, this courtyard is a much better deal. It has a pool , steps away from PATH to 34th st, and walkable to restaurants, movie theaters and the mall. The front desk is very friendly and the breakfast buffet is very good. the garden coutyard is very small though and no newspapers while i was there. But all in all a definite great alternative to staying in manhattan.
Nice Hotel, Convenient Location
My wife and I stayed at the Courtyard at Marriott in Jersey City 2/13/04 - 2/15/04. Nice hotel, very clean, and friendly staff. Valet parking was $14.00 a day, which is a good rate for that area.The hotel is right next to the Path system which for a $1.50 can have you in lower Manhattan in 10 minutes.The Newport Mall is only about a half a block away for great shopping (3% sales tax).It seemed like the cafe at the hotel was only open in the morning and for brunch during the weekend.I'm sure this isn't the case during the week with all the bussiness travelers. We are making plans to return with the kids and to enjoy another weekend in the city.
Great stay for a low price.
We stayed at the Courtyard in May 2002. The location could not be more convenient to transportation into Manhattan since the PATH station was adjacent to the hotel. The rooms were much larger than we expected. Parking was very reasonable. The service was commendable. Rooms were very quiet, we would never have guessed there were other guests in the hotel. We have already reserved rooms again for 2003.

... quickly and get out the door and we are mostly successful, arriving at the Empire State at about 10 past 8. Already there is a line, albeit a short one. We laugh at all the roped-off lanes awaiting unsuspecting tourists who have the audacity to arrive after the ungodly hour of say....9am. Despite our early start, true to form, we have to queue. This is one of the most frustrating things we have found about America, NY in particular- they are poor crowd managers. Absolutely no-one here ...
... something to see us through. We got back to the hotel and I discovered why my feet had been hurting all day - it turned out I had gotten myself a gigantic blister on my right foot. Yay me. I ended up dipping my feet into the hotel pool, until our taxi arrived to take us to the train station at 4pm.
We got to the train and were allowed to board 20 minutes early, which may seem like a silly idea, however with free wifi, a reclining chair and ...

By the time I arrived at the Hotel I was so buggered that I simply flaked for an hour, then went out and sussed out the local area (Little India), bought some groceries etc. and had dinner before flaking out again in preparation for the next several days of sightseeing!
Even though I didn't do any sightseeing, I have included a picture from later on in my stay to give an idea of ...

We had thought that we might go out again after we'd dropped our packages at home, but by the time we got home and had a drink we didn't bother to go out again. Exchanged emails with Arnah, and we arranged to meet tomorrow at 4.30pm at an agreed spot at Central Park so that's ...
We have retuned form the Staten Island ferry and navigating toward the memorial. New York is huge and lots of navigating streets and the map. We did come through the financial district and pass the bull. Lots of people taking pictures and climbing around the bull. That was kind if weird. There ...
