You can reach 2 other major destinations--the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island--without even going to NY. A light-rail station right outside the Westin provides access to New Jersey's Liberty State Park. Once you've arrived (about a 20-minute ride), walk 15 minutes to the ferry terminal for a trip to Lady Liberty or Ellis Island, with fantastic views along the way. The park is also home to the popular Liberty Science Center. Love to shop or just need to pick up a few essentials? The Newport Centre Mall adjoins the hotel.
Pleasant surprises await at this modern, smoke-free Westin. The staff is friendly and gracious--no snooty pretentiousness here! Talk to the concierge for expert advice on the best of Jersey and the Big Apple. Unwind in the indoor pool and spa tub, where a wall of windows and a skylight bathe you in natural light. Or keep up with your fitness routine in the state-of-the-art gym. When it's time to dine, visit the elegant Fire & Oak restaurant, serving grilled fare and other favorites from late morning till late night. The Half Moon Lounge is open from breakfast time till late evening. The Westin offers a host of conveniences, too: 24-hour room service, a 24-hour business center, and hotel-wide Wi-Fi (surcharge).
And those Westin Heavenly Beds--pure bliss! The pillowtop mattress is layered with a down blanket, plush duvet, and 5 plump pillows. Before you drift off to dreamland, watch an HBO show on the 37-inch LCD HDTV. A clock radio with an iPod dock is bedside. Wireless and wired high-speed Internet access is available for a surcharge. Your room also features the Westin Heavenly Bath, with a refreshing dual showerhead.
