PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION:

Google Maps is great for navigating in and around the city, by using the Bus icon when searching for directions:

From Newark Liberty (EWR) Airport
Within the airport the AirTrain is free. Take the Newark AirTrain to the Newark Airport Rail station, and take the train to Newark Penn Station (ticket price is $5.50), then transfer to the PATH train- World Trade Center Line, (ticket price is $2.75), and get off at Exchange Place. Travel time is approx. 45 minutes-1 hour

From LaGuardia (LGA) and JFK Airports:
We strongly advise to take a taxi or shuttle instead of public transport to/from these airports to the hotel. This involves subways and buses/PATH train which can be very confusing. Travel time is approx. 1½ - 2 hours. 

DRIVING TO THE HOTEL:

When using a GPS or electronic directions to navigate to the hotel, please use the destination address of 2 Christopher Columbus Drive, Jersey City, NJ 07302
