Wake to a View of the Statue of Liberty From These Superb New York City Hotels

New York Epic Stays
by Matador Creators Jul 25, 2023

From the comfort of these luxurious hotels near the Statue of Liberty, you can marvel at the grandeur of the iconic statue bathed in the golden glow of sunrise or under the twinkling stars right from the comfort of your accommodation. These hotels not only provide an unforgettable visual treat but also place you in the heart of New York City, where you’re just steps away from other major attractions such as the Empire State Building. Visiting the Statue of Liberty should be planned in advance — after all, it is one of the most famous landmarks in the world. Opting for a hotel on or close to the water means you can roll out of bed at sunrise and get a little head start before the crowds hit. The hotels here have been selected for location, but also five-star amenities, service, and an overall exceptional rating from guests.

We hope you love the hotels near Statue of Liberty we recommend! Just so you know, Matador may collect a small commission from the links on this page if you decide to book a stay.

The best time to visit the Statue of Liberty

Timing is key. The best time to visit is early in the morning, preferably on the first ferry of the day. This will help you avoid the crowds that tend to gather later in the day. The park, which includes Ellis Island and Liberty Island, is open from 9:00 AM until 5:45 PM daily. It’s recommended to budget at least two hours for your visit to the Statue of Liberty and an additional hour if you plan to visit Ellis Island as well. To ensure access and avoid disappointment, it’s highly advised to book your tickets in advance.

Hyatt Regency Jersey City on the Hudson, a luxury waterfront hotel, is conveniently located approximately two miles away from the Statue of Liberty. This short distance allows guests to enjoy stunning views of this iconic landmark right from the comfort of their rooms or the hotel’s communal areas.

There’s a 24-hour fitness center and a small indoor pool. The facilities lean more towards catering for the business traveler, but considering the location, if you are traveling with kids, you won’t need to go far to find entertainment. The on-site restaurant, VU, adds a nice local (and sustainable) element with a creative menu not commonly found in a large mega-brand hotel.

There are three simple ways to get from the New York Marriott Downtown to the statue. The two miles are easily covered on foot, especially in the spring or fall when temperatures are pleasant. Subway stations are also a breeze or you can hop on the ferry. The Marriott has views of the statue from only some rooms, so if that’s a deal breaker, contact the hotel for more information on what is available.

This is a good option if you’re willing to do a little legwork. The hotel offers super competitive rates, especially if you’re visiting during the shoulder season and mid-week. That’s mainly due to its size. It’s spread over 38 floors with 506 guest rooms and seven suites. You’ll mainly find corporate travelers here, but if you’re an individual traveler who has brand alliance, or want something reliable next to major city sights, this is a stable option.
