While I'm a Starwoods Preferred Guest, I rarely stay at a member hotel. I travel domestically and internationally each week, but I generally stay at a Hilton or Marriott property. Both Hilton and Marriott were sold out in NYC last week, so my wife and I chose the Westin Jersey City. First, the location was fantastic! Very upcscale, no crowds, no garbage on the streets, and lots of excellent shopping and restaurants within walking distance. For work, I took the 20 minute PATH train to the City each day (1 block from the Westin). A great mall was directly behind the Westin. Aside from the amenities and great location, the hotel staff was fantastic. The front desk agent was actually friendly and made us feel welcome like we were celebrities. We're Diamond members at Hilton and NEVER receive that type of reception. Upon leaving, I had no ready cash to tip the Bellman. In NYC this would have prompted him to drop my bags in the hallway and walk on. But the gentleman said it was no problem and wished us safe travels (wish I could remember his name). Anyways, I typically stay in the fashion or garment district, and sometimes in Chelsea. But this Newport area in Jersey City is now my favorite location when traveling to NYC. And of course, I'll book the Westin Jersey City (wish I could transfer my 250K Hilton points to Starwood!
