          Small hotel but very expensive rates”

          Only choose this hotel because near to JFK airport as arrived NY late night and taking another flight to Niagara Falls the next day early morning. Basically a budget hotel with no facility but charging 4 stars or even 5 stars rates.

          Good option for transit time in NY”

          The hotel is located close to the airport. They offer free transportation to and from JFK and it works perfectly fine. The drivers were kind. We arrived early morning to NY and were in the hotel at 10:00 am. Unfortunately there was no room available, which was a pain, as we were travelling during 24 hours from Sri Lanka, and had to wait until 3:00 pm as informed by the front desk staff. However, at 1:00 pm they could provide us with a room, that provided all the necessary comfort. Close to the hotel you can find some fast food restaurants and if you have time, a mall is at approx 6 miles. Staff is all kind and ready to help guests.

          Airport friendly”

          Arrived at 11pm on the 10th May, 2017 after an exhausting 24 hour journey. Took the taxi from JFK which cost me only 14 $. Reception was helpful and quickly got me in my room. The FO staff helped with luggage, which was nice of them. Room was on the smaller size but clean with a tea/coffee maker and a fridge. I had asked for 2 beds and they were comfortable. TV had most news channels. Breakfast is in the foyer near reception from 6.30 to 10.30am. The spread includes cornflakes, bread (white and wheat), bagels, oatmeal, boiled eggs, muffins and fruits alongwith juices. It's a decent breakfast. The foyer has a tea coffee facility which is available 24 hours. Stayed for 2 nights. The reception was very helpful in directing me to Manhattan. You buy a Metro pass at the reception for $ 5.50 which entitles you to take a Q6 bus (just next to the hotel) to Sutphin-Archer stop. From there you cross the road and take the E subway from Sutphin station to the station of your choice in Manhattan. On the way back, the Q6 stop is just outside Sutphin station and you get down at 136 avenue-Rockaway Boulevard Av stop. The elapsed time for the entire journey (one way) is about an hour but comfortable. The Metro card pays for one return journey and is a steal at that price. There is a Burger King next to this hotel but we did not try it. A 7-11 is a 5 minute walk away with an Indian food joint next door. Tried the Indian joint, was ok. Reception, Housekeeping and all support staff in the hotel are friendly and helpful always. If you arrive in JFK and need a couple of days to rejuvenate yourself, this is the place. The cost is on the higher side, but that is the price for location. Staying more than 2-3 days? I suggest you look for alternatives!

          the location of the hotel was very convenient as it was only a 5 minute drive from jfk airport. we stayed at the hotel on many occations. most of the time it was when we had early morning or late night flights from jfk. the staff were friendly and the shuttle to and from the airport was also very convenient. the hotel room could have been slightly cleaner, but the bathroom was very clean and the bed was big and comfortable. the tv didn't offer too many programs to choose from but it was still alright. overall, i thought the hotel was very nice and comfortable, the service was also quick and efficient.

Cons: you have to walk down some steps to downstairs and walk around to back to find the elevator to take you up to your floor. Would be nice if the elevator was at the front entrance .

          This hotel is run by friendly staff and has a free shuttle service to and from the JFK airport. Being 5-10 mins from the airport made it an ideal transit hotel for us to stay the night before our flight out. Staff are helpful and provide details of how to go to Manhattan via public transport. The hotel is not in a location for sightseeing but their shuttle bus runs every hour and can connect you with transport. Rooms are clean and there's a free light breakfast included.

          Shuttle service is available from Federal Circle just call the hotel when you arrived at Federal Circle take airtrain for free from any terminal in JFK to Federal Circle and call the hotel for shuttle pick up with the free phone service in the station. This hotel offers free shuttle until 12am only, driver Uncle George is a very kind and helpful man, excellent service! Not many facilities as expected since it is only a transit stay hotel.

          The shuttle pick up is at a air train station called federation circle, and then we had to call them. I emailed three days in advance and got a reply after I checked in. When we rang to get directions the lady on the phone was quite rude and didn't help very much. The building is in desperate need of renovations. Quite dirty in the halls etc. The room was fine beds were huge and room was tidy. Breakfast was good there was cereal, waffles, bread, beagles everything. Was happy with that. But I wouldn't stay longer than one night.

          Timely shuttle service

          The shuttle to the hotel from the airport requires the traveler to take the Metro from the airport, with all the luggage, to a station specifically designed for hotel buses to pick up passengers. This is a requirement of JFK airport and not of the hotels. However, this adds both to time and effort on part of the passenger. I strongly recommend using an airport SmartCart in spite of the fact that it costs money to rent one. The return shuttle, however, drops off the passenger at the correct terminal at JFK and this is convenient.

          close to airport, shuttle transportation, enough amenities

          I was shocked to see the entrance of the hotel after staying at the Renaissance before this as it is really small. I have to put my 2 luggages into the dollly provided and pushed it to my room in a different floor . The room is fully equipped with enough amenities. The air condition sent out bad smell which I don't know what caused it. Breakfast and shuttle transportation are provided. In all, except the bad smell from air condition, I think I can accept it fine.
