I can go on and on and on about how amazing the Westin is. My guests and I stayed at this hotel for my wedding in August. I'll start with just how beautiful the hotel itself is. The views of Manhattan are impeccable, the rooms are spacious and clean, the decor is modern and fun, and prices were very reasonable! I stayed in the Presidential Suite for my wedding, where I got ready with my best friends. As I said the views are fantastic and the suite is HUGE and beautiful. Aside from the awesome decor and rooms at the hotel, what stands out even more is the staff. They are truly truly truly incredible!! I had been working with Izabela all year on the hotel block for our wedding in August. Having never met her, she was so accommodating and pleasant to work with, always finding a way to add more rooms as time went on when we needed. However; the real testament to how lovely and amazing the staff is came the day before our wedding, when my husband and I found out that the venue we were supposed to get married at (Battello, which is located directly across the street from the Westin), was shutting down, effective immediately. As you can imagine, this was a HUGE shock and nightmare to say the least. Izabela and her colleague Eddie, heard this information through a third party and literally came running to our rescue. They ran across the street to Battello (where me and my husband were) when they heard the news and from that moment on, they did not stop helping us until our situation was figured out. They chauffeured us throughout Hoboken trying to find us another venue to get married out. They are truly amazing people and our wedding would not have happened if it wasn't for their help. We had our after party at Fire & Oak, & a brunch the next day as well, all which was delicious and reasonably priced. All of our guests raved about their experience there! I cannot say enough amazing things about this hotel.Sent on 08/22/2017

We had our reception at the Westin Jersey City and the party was above and beyond anything we could have imagined. We worked with Elizabeth Stacey from the start and she was absolutely fantastic at coordinating and handling all the little details. I never had to worry about anything because she had it taken care of. The staff working at the reception were all incredibly friendly and attentive, and my vegetarian friends commented that the the wait staff remembered to come to them with all the vegetarian hors d'œuvres. They seemed to genuinely enjoy their job and made us feel taken care of. And the food was incredible, our guests raved about everything from the hors d'œuvres to filet mignon to the tiramisu dessert. The night was just amazing and we would highly recommend them as a venue!Sent on 12/26/2012

The Westin was a beautiful venue for our Indian wedding. They have a nice outdoor space across the street by the marina for the baraat to start. Many of the other hotel venues in the region that we checked out had ugly carpets and out of date interior styling, but the Westin Newport is very modern and well-designed. The grand ballroom where we held the ceremony and the reception is a beautiful room with high ceilings. The guest rooms and suites are very spacious with luxurious beds and the room rate we got for our wedding guests was very reasonable.Sent on 02/13/2013
However what stood out the most about the Westin Newport was the quality of the service. We worked with Elizabeth who was incredibly helpful with all of our planning. She worked with us to get every detail we wanted for our wedding including several last minute changes and additions while still keeping our budget in mind. She responded reliably to emails and messages in a very timely manner and was always pleasant and managed to seem relaxed. On the day of the wedding she coordinated all our vendors seamlessly so that everything was set up and arranged exactly as we wanted it and right on time. The additional staff that worked with us that day including the service staff was consistently very professional as well. Overall we and all of our guests had a wonderful experience and a great stay at the Westin Newport.
