The hotel is about 10-15 minutes drive from the airport without traffic. It is around the corner from the World Trade Center. Centrally located if you need to move anywhere like in my case. The food is delicious, very fresh and healthy. The staff is nice and try their best to assist you. There are lots of restaurants, ATMs, a small mall, a pharmacy, Starbucks (if you can't leave w/o it) within walking distance. I am a woman and feel safe walking in the surrounding areas. I have stayed at Novit about 6x since November 2013 and it works for me. I have stayed at Sheraton Maria Isabel and Hyatt but hard to move around from those places unless you are just working there. Ah! We enjoy the 2x1 drinks during happy hour 7PM-8PM. Very friendly bartender! i hope this is helpful.
