This 4-star Hudson River hotel, with shimmering skyline and waterfront views, is a 5-minute ride by water taxi or train from Lower Manhattan's Financial District. Located in Jersey City, the Hyatt Regency on the Hudson stands on a pier, next to the PATH rail station and a 2-minute walk to the water-taxi dock. In Lower Manhattan (2 miles away), guests can tend to business on Wall Street, witness the rebuilding of the World Trade Center site, or catch a subway to Times Square, Rockefeller Center and other must-see attractions. Back on the Jersey side of the river, guests can visit Liberty State Park (3 miles away) and catch a ferry to the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island, or explore the family-friendly Liberty Science Center and take in the spectacular views from the waterfront promenade. Guests can also find plenty of shopping nearby.
Water, water, everywhere--including the Hyatt Regency's heated indoor pool, where walls of windows face the New York skyline across the river. At the Vu restaurant, guests can enjoy modern American cuisine, complemented by postcard-perfect vistas of Manhattan and the Statue of Liberty, or meet friends or colleagues at the stylish lounge with sparkling city views. Room service is also available from early morning to late-night. For convenience, a 24-hour business center is available and is staffed during business hours. The hotel also features 20,000 square feet of meeting space. Wireless Internet access (surcharge) is available throughout the hotel. A TV is available in the lobby, and valet parking is also provided (surcharge). Among nearby activities, guests can enjoy kayaking, a golf driving range, a playground and helicopter sightseeing. The hotel was renovated in 2010.
The 351 guestrooms include premium bedding, triple sheeting on a pillowtop mattress, down comforters, water/city views and 37-inch LCD TVs with ESPN, HBO and cable service. Windows open to the fresh breezes. A large desk, a cordless multi-line speakerphone, an ergonomic chair and wireless and wired high-speed Internet access (surcharge) make work life easier. An iHome clock radio with an iPod dock is bedside, so guests can wake up to a personal playlist. Private bathrooms have bathroom phones, makeup/shaving mirrors and bathrobes (available on request).
