Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by HR2016 An excellent hotel for the short stay traveller
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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Erin5 Short Stay - but Very Sweet
After a long and rough flight, finally arrived at JFK around midnight. I called the hotel to get shuttle directions and found a lovely guide in the desk clerk. Shuttle driver was awesome. The Hotel was very clean and modern. Still on West coast time, I called in the morning to inquire about late check out - and met another very friendly desk service agent. When we finally headed out to greet the day, this same service agent was amazingly helpful and patient in providing info and directions - and a subway map. Overall - great staff and very cozy stay - would recommend and book again!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Marc101 Decent Hotel
The hotel was okay. The room was small (especially the bathroom) but it was fine - and CLEAN. Unfortunately the hallway (especially where you exit the elevator) was not that clean at all.
I'm not understanding why, because it's so close to the airport, the room isn't sound proofed from the outdoors. It might be a cost expenditure but if one of the chain hotels around JFK would do that people would notice and the capital investment would come back 10 fold.
The staff (especially the girl that worked nights) was EXCELLENT.
I didn't sleep that well but I think that was the detergent used for the bedding. I usually sleep pretty at Holiday Inns outside of the NY area.
