WHERE EVENT ATTENDEES CAN STAY
In a city as large as New York, it is easy to find lodging to fit any taste and preference. However, these options come with a price, and staying in the best locations often means spending quite a bit of money. One travel tip that frequent NYC visitors have in their toolkit is to escaping the hustle and bustle of Manhattan and booking a stay in Jersey City, NJ. With its proximity to NYC and a booming economy of its own, it’s easy to enjoy your stay in downtown Jersey City.
There are many hotels to choose from, and you can get right back into the city quickly via the PATH. One of the best hotels is the Hyatt House Jersey City. This comfortable hotel is located directly across the Hudson River, giving you easy access to the conference and all of the attractions of New York City. The Westin Jersey City Newport is another popular choice. With a spacious indoor pool and great views of the city, it’s as energizing as it is relaxing.
WHILE IN TOWN
While attending the Coffee Fest New York 2020 conference, be sure to take advantage of some of the many exciting things to see and do in New York City. As the cold winter begins to make its exit, Central Park will begin to come alive with color and action, making it a perfect spot for your March visit. A trip to the National September 11 Memorial & Museum is a sobering experience that should be on the top of your travel itinerary. Located in Lower Manhattan, this site is easily reached from all points of the city and Jersey City.
IN ADDITION TO COFFEE
As wonderful as it is, you cannot survive on coffee alone while at this conference. Fortunately, the Big Apple and its environs boast an amazing array of food and drink establishments. While in the area, be sure to check out the many restaurants near Times Square, such as the lively Havana Central. Nosh on a variety of flavorful Cuban food and drink items such as the classic Cuban sandwich, ropa vieja, paella, and more while listening to live music. Or you can slow down and relax during your stay in downtown Jersey City by choosing to dine at the Liberty House, delivering stunning views of the Manhattan skyline as you indulge in steak or seafood at this waterfront dining destination.
