Just came back from my stay at the Hyatt Regency Jersey City. First of all - it was really a steal and I don't want to complain about anything. Just some remarks: It is not true that every room has a view of Manhattan (either the South or the North). There are some rooms which do have no Manhattan view at all due to the non-rectangle shape of the building. On the right side of the hotel, there is some kind of ledge which prevents the rooms in the landward half of the hotel from viewing Manhattan. All you can see from those rooms is Ellis and Liberty Island. I called the hotel ahead and asked to be put on an upper floor - which I got but with the drawback mentioned above. So make sure to ask for a room with Manhattan view explicitly. Unfortunately, they had no other non smoking rooms available so I couldn't move. I imagine the nightly view of Midtown must be breathtaking. Checking in was smooth, Priceline was mentioned but not with a negative attitude. Rooms are OK, especially compared with NYC. Public transportation is easy, the only drawback is that the unlimited ride MetroCard (which btw. has increased to $24 yesterday) is not valid on PATH trains (but the pay-per-ride card is), but hey - investing $3 a day pp. to get from and to that bargain is still more than just affordable. The PATH station at the WTC site is HUGHE (I wonder for what reason) and you have to walk quite a distance, especially if you have to reach i.e. the A or C train. If you should have booked a rental car with Hertz - the location is in the same parking garage as the parking lot for the Hyatt (I mention this because I had problems to find it w/o asking someone of the hotel staff. The small booth is not visible from the outside and there is no Hertz sign. Will definitely stay there again.
