Heads up to anyone staying here on weekends up until December 2019 - Beginning January 5, 2019 through December 20, 2020, PATH’s World Trade Center Station will close every weekend, excluding major holidays, in order to replace equipment damaged during Superstorm Sandy. The station will close at 12:01 a.m. on Saturdays, reopening at 5 a.m. on Mondays.

During this time, PATH service to World Trade Center will terminate at Exchange Place Station (next to the Hyatt). Each Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 11:30 p.m., transfer will be available for NY Waterway ferry service between Harborside Ferry Landing in Jersey City and Brookfield Place Terminal in New York City. Service on the JSQ-33 via HOB line will follow a regular weekend schedule.

In short, do not plan on taking the PATH to/from the Hyatt to the World Trade Center on weekends.

Yes, the screen shot shows my specific dates. Flying in from ZRH on Sunday. Good to know regarding the dates, so I'm even more happy with the price Well, I'm certainly looking forward to the hotel and how it holds up compared to my client's usual choice in NY.

What a pity with your trip, a mini-meetup would have been nice!

I am a little confused. some have stated the last PATH train is at 10 pm, but looking at the PATH site, it appears there is path service all night from WTC on the Red... can anyone confirm? How far is this station to the hotel?

PATH runs 24 hours.

PATH stations and tunnels were flooded by Hurricane Sandy and was shut down for several weeks . As they slowly repaired and brought the system back up it closed at 10:00 PM. Now it's back to the 24 hour schedule, but there maybe delays in the evening as repairs are still on going. Check this website for alerts & advisories

The exchange station is right outside the hotels front door, about a 5 minute walk from your room. 3 -5 minute ride to the WTC station.

My .02 on this hotel...

Very convenient to NYC.

Booked there a week out. I had one night on my Chase Anniv. benefit and one night paid.

I contacted Yvonne and she was EXCELLENT.

Check-in was efficient and freindly. I opted for the wine and cheese since I had my mother and this was her first visit to NYC. We were given room 605. This is the famous view room. We had a balcony that stepped out to the city. Magnificent View.

Room had two queen beds, but aside from the view was not really an upgrade. This was fine for us.

Breakfast is the average buffet or menu. The buffet is good and has the omelet station. The layout is a little unorganized for traffic flow, but oh well. Staff in the restaurant is friendly. The entire breakfast check was taken off my bill at check-out. No gratuity was paid, etc.

Parking is efficient and a little pricey, but it is NYC. They actually did not post the parking until after I mentioned it, but I was not trying to avoid paying it and did not want to get caught having to pay at the valet stand.

A very nice stay. I will def. consider this hotel again. This is a great option for CAT 4 Hotel in NYC.

Could somebody please PM me the email of Yvonne Yip? Lost her business card in January and not quite sure if her Email follows the usual Hyatt set-up...

EDIT: already solved, thanks for the help!

Stayed here a few nights as a Diamond. Got free water at the front desk. Checked into a King room, which was very spacious. Bathroom facilities were good, and everything was in place. I normally don't care for hotel views, but I must say that the view across the Hudson from this hotel is very nice. Great view of the Manhattan skyline.

Breakfast was a buffet. Selection is pretty good as they have cheeses and a few cured meats as well as your typical full English breakfast.

Great location. Don't let the fact that it's in Jersey City put you off if you're going to Manhattan. The PATH station is literally across the street, and you can get to Midtown in around 30 minutes.

Although having a hotel in Manhattan is convenient, I would have no qualms staying here again.

After a few stays here, I'm back in Manhattan. The PATH train to Midtown is too much of a pain, and really a pain when you travel during non-commute hours. There are times late in the evening when it took 40 - 60 minutes to get back to the hotel. On top of that, when you leave the hotel, Jersey City is DEAD... I've spent several evenings here to LAZY to take the PATH to Manhattan... ending up wondering around the streets of Jersey City looking for something to do.

On another note. A bit of advice to those of you who take the PATH. Beware the system is not safe. The Christopher Street Station is known for pick-pocket, and trains that are headed to Newark can be a bit shady at night, early mornings, keep an eye on your belongings.

Many people I know who live in Jersey City have told me to avoid the Christopher Street Station.

I've been riding PATH since 1973 and never experienced/witnessed any public safety issue.

I agree that the train service is sparse off peak, especially when they do track repairs on the weekends, etc.

Jersey City may not be Greenwich Village, but there are decent places to eat and drink if you know where to look. One of my favorites is the Iron Monkey, which is walking distance from the Hyatt.

Any recent reviews on this? I read that there's no lounge. What's the breakfast like? What kind of upgrades for Diamonds? What's the amenity in lieu of 1k pts?

Am interested in the same thing, especially since they just advertised the $109 per night rate at the same time I was already looking at staying there

I would use caution if you plan to stay there. PATH Trains to WTC during certain weekends service will be interrupted or scaled back. They will be working on the tunnels and single tracking from exchange place to WTC.

They may even stop service on certain days. THe PATH website says to check back in the beginning of 2014 for details.

I think this is one reason they are offering this rate.

Stayed here in November. As a Diamond, I received no upgrade. Only upon persistent inquiries did they offer a room with a 15-degree angle view of the river. Picked a bottle of wine and nuts as an amenity. It was 750 ml so I gave it away as a gift.

Not to mention the extreme inconvenience to midtown NYC.

Disappointed and will not stay again.

Have checked the PATH website and there is no mention of any reduced services, at least nothing for late March when we will be heading there???

Isn't there a ferry within walking distance as well to Manhattan?
