I would definitely stay here again. Right on the Hudson, the World Trade Center is directly across the water. There is also a ferry and train station right next door. The location just cannot be beat. the pool is pretty small though so do not pay attention to the websites photos.

The service checking in was so bad, but the comfort of the room and the location and scenic view was unbelievable.

Historical Traveler Reviews Hyatt Regency Jersey City
This hotel is nothing but the truth!!!
When I tell you this is a nice hotel, it is beautiful! The view, the staff, the rooms, ans the food is all wonderful. If you are staying in New York, DO NOT, I repeat DO NOT rent a car, take a car, or pay for any other transportation aside of the PATH. The PATH train to the World Trade Center and you can catch any train from there. If you're flying in from JFK take the Airtrain from JFK, to JAmaica station, take the E-Train to the World Trade Center and then the PATH is literally 20 steps from the hotel. If you ran full speed no matter how old you are, you'd be there in 5 seconds! The VU buffet is wonderful. Everything is fresh! I don't eat pork and althoughthat's although that's all they had for breakfasty meats. Juan the host brought me out a plate full of Turkey bacon. This place accomodates you in every way possible way. Plus it is very economical.
Excellent rooms and location at a great price!
Great hotel, excellent price. The location may seem to be its downfall but only 2 min away from downtown NYC by jersey PATH trains to the new world trade center station. Staff was excellent and rooms have a great view of nyc, statue of liberty, hudson river. Excellent place to stay!
My husband and i stay at the Hyatt Jersey city on January, despite the weather conditions we had an unforgettable experience, from the minute we valet our car ( $30 OV/N !) until the last minute in our room. As soon as you walk into the lobby ( 3rd fl)the scalator ride to the front desk gives you the most amazing view of lower manhattan, the front desk staff was very helpful and accomodating. then after check in make sure to see Richard the magician (concierge )he will go the extra mile to make a your stay a memmorable one. once you get to your room get ready for the delightful view of the whole city, (ask for room 705 !!) it even has a very peaceful balcony. then before going to your Broadway show the Vu, it's the resturant on the 3rd floor. excellent service all walls are actually all glass no obstrubted views at all. dinner was fairly priced, absolutely worth it!
the fitness center was very small but they have great equipment. the lap-pool was also small but very relaxing after a 30 minute workout looking at the statue of liberty and ellis island.
the location is very convinient the Path is right next door and also the ferry is also walking distance.
well, it is definately a second home close to New York City.
We look forward to go back in summer!

Me and my family stayed at this hotel in December of 2003. Hotel is only a few years old so everything was nice and clean. Bathroom was clean and furnishing was nicely done. We got one room on the first floor and the other on second because we needed one smoking room. Both room had the view of NYC so that was really nice....I would imagine that it'd be even nicer if you get a room on the higher floor. We were kind of surprised to have to take the elevator down to get to our room (front desk is on the third floor) but since we paid really cheap for these rooms, we didn't mind too much. The other nice thing about this hotel was that it's literally about 10 steps away from train station that takes you to NYC. You get on and the next stop is World Trade Center. Valet parking was $30.00 per night for hotel guest. We ate breakfast buffet at the restaurant called Vu. It was cheaper than most other hotel breakfast buffet I've been to but it was pretty good. I think you can get a better view of NYC from this hotel than the hotels actually in NYC. We wanted to go see the Statue of Liberty and hotel gave us a free ride to ferry station so we didn't have to drive around looking for it so that was nice. I would recommend this hotel to people who travel to NYC.
Very nice hotel (what you would expect from a Hyatt), friendly and helpful staff, nice buffet breakfast. My only complaint is that it wasn't quite as convenient to get into NYC as I expected. It takes a little time. If you have it, stay here. The views and the price coupled w/ the fact that it is a very nice place make it a great choice. It's located in a quaint section of Jersey City. And I can't say enough about the views of NYC--magical. I think you get a better view here of the city than if you were to actually stay in the city. Speaking of city views, however, the Hyatt's "city view" is of Jersey City. So, if you ask for a city view, make sure it's a view of New York City. By the way, I had no problem w/ thin walls. Also, when we checked in we were told immediately that we had the option to self-park and we were given the prices of both.
Stayed for 4 days from thru 9-5-03. Hotel was just beautiful. My room had a King Bed, desk with a return, lounging chair and little entry bench. View was just awesome of all the landmarks in NYC! My side had views of Empire State Building. Friends staying on the opposite side could see Manhattan, the bridge and Statue of Liberty. Public transportation is available within 2 blocks. Our comapny got a group business rate of $150/night booking several rooms together. I agree that walls and doors were a little on the thinner side, but nothing to complain terribly about. Pretty standard for any high-rise hotel I have ever stayed in. Bathroom was nice with a beautiful curved granite countertop and relax back (but standard sized) tub. Everything was clean and well kept. Parking valet was a little slow, 15-20 minutes avg wait, so make sure you have enough time to wait for you car if you are parking at the hotel. The hotel restaurant was very good, little pricey, but then everything is in NYC, especially when it's convenient.
Fitness center was fabulous. If ever back in NYC, I would definately look into staying there!
Great Value! Amazing Views!
Friends of ours won a two-night stay for two in a charity raffle, and invited my boyfriend and I along. The staff at the Hyatt were very accomodating, and allowed us to share their room at no extra cost. The concierge was incredibly friendly and helpful, taking time to help us plan our day in the city. We had two great meals at the Vue (breakfast and dinner) and found the staff there also very friendly and professional. The Hyatt is next door to the Path, which connects to the Metro to Manhattan. We had such a fun time that weekend, and the Hyatt was a big part of it! My boyfriend and I are already planning a trip of our own. Don't hesitate to stay there!
Great Place, Everything New and Clean - Thin walls!
Stayed while my apartment was being painted. Everything was excellent.
My only complaint is that the walls are thin and you may be woken up by others...
Overall, I would recommend it. It is a great value.
Recent trip to NYC. Plans to stay at the Hotel 3 nights. Had to cancel 2 nights due to an injury off premises. Front desk staff were very helpful & understanding. Service was excellent. Rooms are comfortable with terrific views. Breakfast buffet at the Vue was great. Will definitely be back again, under better circumstances!! Peggy & Tom from Ohio
Loved it so much, we're going back for New Years Eve
My husband and stayed at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Jersey City around Thanksgiving Holiday. The hotel is just brand new and beautiful, the people could not be more courteous. With the fitness room, pool, etc. there is always something to do. And if you're lucky enough to get a room with a view of the New York Skyline right across the river, well... you could just stay in your room and stare at it for a while.... a more beautiful site you won't ever see!! We had dinner in the hotel at the "View"
which is "all windows" so, again, the view was just awsome, the food absolutely delicious. We loved it so much that we have a room booked for New Years Eve. I highly recommend the Hyatt Regency Hotel on the Hudson. You'll have a wonderful time.

Workout um 6 Uhr morgens.. wer uns kennt, der weiss, dass dies definitiv am Jetlag und nicht an unserem eisernen Trainingswillen liegt :-). Aber bei der Aussicht fällt das Training auch nicht schwer!
PS: die Kids mussten übrigens nicht ins Gym, sie durften schlafen bzw. Hörbuch hören.
Nach unserem zeitigen Aufstehen und Frühstück haben wir uns auf den Weg nach Manhatten gemacht. Dank dem PATH-train ist man in ca. 5 Minuten beim World Trade Center. Von dort wollten wir zum Broadway, das hat dann - wegen einem unfreiwilligen Umweg beim Wechseln der Subway ;-) - etwas länger gedauert als geplant, schliesslich kamen wir dann aber …
Geschafft! Um 5.30 sind wir aufgestanden und jetzt um 18.00 (Schweizerzeit 24.00) gehts ab ins Bett :-). Die Kids haben SUPER mitgemacht, sogar mit Mittagsschlaf im Flieger. Unser Abholservice vom Flughafen war Klasse, den die Warteschlange bei den Taxis wäre dann doch etwas zu viel gewesen. Und es war auch mal noch cool, mit Namenstafel vom …
Heute gings vom WTC zu Fuss durch Downtown Manhatten, bei der City Hall vorbei über die Brooklyn Bridge bis in den Brooklyn Bridge Park. Dort haben wir uns in die Wiese gelegt und wie viele viele andere auch, den Frühling und den fantastischen Blick auf Manhatten genossen. Zurück gings dann mit der Subway und der East River Ferry. …
... was less than impressed until she walked around the back of the trailer and looked down between the rows and saw the Statue of Liberty in the harbor. Suddenly, the idea of location seemed much more important!
After a quick bite to eat, we took the PATH train under the Hudson River to the station at the World Trade Center, then switched to the MTA and rode the subway uptown to 42nd Street and 8th Avenue. It ...
