The Hyatt Regency is spectacular and so are the views of NYC, with the hotel shaped like a cruise ship that juts out into the Hudson River, directly across from the Freedom Tower at 1 World Trade Center. The Riverside part of Jersey City is the fastest growing area in the entire state. There are jamming areas, too, for those late night after FEST sessions.
In regards to the PATH service, you can take the Path to Hoboken and either take the light rail from there or take the PATH and switch at Grove station to get to Exchange place.
You can also utilize the ferry via NY Waterway from Brookfield place which is right next door as well. Both are good options and Brookfield is walking distance to World Trade and most major NYC connections.
