The new 3,520-square-foot rooftop terrace enclosure gives guests panoramic views of the Manhattan skyline all year long

Jersey City, New Jersey now has an amazing addition to the Exchange Place neighborhood with the completion of its newest local hotel, Hyatt House Jersey City Hotel, located on the city’s waterfront. Developed by Hyatt and Concord Hospitality Enterprises, the Hyatt House offers visitors 12 floors, terrace bar, rooftop, and 258 rooms of inviting accommodations, all crowned by an incredible new rooftop lounge. Located on the Hudson River directly across from the Freedom Tower, visitors will be awed by an amazing panoramic view of New York City. Guests, locals and tourists alike are able to enjoy this fantastic rooftop space year-round thanks to a customized retractable roof and glass enclosure designed and installed by OpenAire.
The lounge/bar is over 110 feet long and over 32 feet wide, big enough for events and parties of all sizes. The 3,520-square-foot glass-enclosed structure has a roof that is built in three telescoping sections, which open and close at the touch of a button, and walls that fold completely open to the adjacent rooftop terrace. When fully open the walls and roof disappear to let in incredible city views, creating a one of a kind destination.

On sunny days, two of the roof sections retract under the third exposing the lounge completely to the open skies and fresh air. In cold or inclement weather, the roof and walls will still provide excellent views of the Manhattan skyline across the Hudson River, but will keep guests comfortable in a temperature-controlled environment, that is usable on the coldest days of winter. It is an ideal place to enjoy great food and drinks while experiencing the sights and sounds of New Jersey.

Hyatt House Jersey City is an adoptive re-use of the 97-year-old former First National Bank of Jersey City at One Exchange Place. Hyatt, Concord Hospitality, and OpenAire are all excited to unveil this unique and attractive venue, which is bringing new life and business to the heart of Jersey City. With its one-of-a-kind combination of classical architecture, modern designs, and exceptional rooftop views, the Hyatt House is sure to become a destination in Jersey City for years to come.
