YouTube | Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the Hudson

If it’s not an upgrade, we won’t officially index it here on modhop so this ADA compliant, accessible room at Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the Hudson finds a home at our YouTube Channel.

 

Accessible King Room - Sofa

There arent a lot of places in and around New York City to spread out, so fall into your big Jersey City Sectional – Hyatt Regency Jersey City

The Room: If you’re used to staying across the river, this King room at Hyatt Regency Jersey City might seem like a palace compared to a similarly named room in New York City. Inside, you’ve got a king bed with what feel like mid-grade sheets and the thick windows keep a lot of the city noise out so it sleeping shouldn’t be much of a challenge. If you just want to relax, the sectional couch seems unnecessarily big but is a cozy way to relax and stare out at what might be a pretty spectacular view depending on what side of the hotel you’re on.

Spreading out your pre-meeting files and handouts should be easy (I don’t have a lot of meetings). Desk space is a good size and is well lit by a bright desk lamp and the ergonomic leather chair is comfortable despite not having armrests.

The television serves up typical hotel movies and shows for purchase and features a couple handfuls of local and cable channels on the house.

Washroom: This accessible washroom was short on counterspace but came with a large, open shower but no bath. Other ADA compliant rooms at Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the Hudson are offered with baths.

Hyatt Jersey City - KenetMD Soap

The clinical packaging must mean that it really works, right? KenetMD Skincare Amenities – Hyatt Jersey City

Amenities: KenetMD skincare is the brand that replaced our beloved Portico white ginger shampoos, soaps. I was a huge fan of the white ginger soaps but after reading more on the new amenities, this is an upgrade.

Service: If I had been bored, I would have stopped to chat more with the front desk staff. We got smiles on check-in, check-out and when we asked for directions to the closest drug store. Friendly service was found at breakfast although it took more than a New York minute to be seated.

Wi-fi/Connectivity: Wi-fi and wired internet is offered at an extra charge.

Overall: Despite not being close to much in the immediate area, Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the Hudson is a good alternative to the often pricey NYC hotels. With “normal” sized rooms, good service and often spectacular views, the upgrade might just be NOT staying in New York.

    I stayed there once when I went to a wedding on that side of the Hudson. You’re right about the rooms, they are large. I was surprised by the size (a really good value for the money). Despite being on the other side of the river, it was easy to get to Manhattan, less than 10 minutes to downtown using the Port Authority train.

    Indeed. The PATH train is insanely convenient from here. The hop to world trade is just minutes and then it’s hop in a cab or another train (subway) to where you want to go. It’s a good thing too…There’s NOTHING to do in that part of Jersey City.
