This was my first stay here. It was recommended to me by a friend. Everything about the hotel was designed to welcome the guest. There is a 24 hour shuttle that runs between JFK and Holiday Inn, and
its free. I was welcomed by the reception staff, Zoe, who checked me in promptly and cheerfully and provided every little guidance that I needed regarding my stay and local travel. All staff that I met were most courteous and helpful.
The room was spacious enough, clean, comfortable and a clean bathroom. There is coffee maker in the room and a generous choice of TV channels. There is even an ironing board and iron - which is just so handy.
The hotel has a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and dinner - the food is great with generous helpings. In the basement, there is a gym to exercise away those calories, and a self service laundry with washing machine and dryer - what more could one ask for.
Within a short ten minute walk, there is a shopping centre with a few restaurants.
In case you want to do some local travel, take the hotel shuttle to Federal Circle station at JFK, and then take the Air Train to Jamaica station (one stop away). From there you can take trains to Manhattan or to Long Island.
I was so delighted and satisfied with my stay that decided to stay here again on a return transit. [Less]
