I stayed at the LaGuardia Plaza Hotel recently because I had an early morning flight from LGA and didn't want to leave from my relative's home at 4:00AM in order to catch my flight. The hotel was blind booked via hotwire.com at a reasonable price for an airport hotel in a big city.
The hotel is located on the opposite side of the Grand Central Parkway from the airport and offers free shuttle service to the airport.
While the lobby and exterior of the hotel would have you believe that this was a high end hotel, once you got to your room, any illusion of this disappeared.
The rooms were best described as dated and a bit spartan. Given the lobby and exterior of the hotel, I expected better. The furnishings looked like they have not been replaced in 10-20 years. There was no desk or workspace in the room and the TV set, while it worked, definitely has seen better days. One of the electrical outlets was so worn that my cell phone charger would not stay in the outlet. Had to move the night table in order access an outlet to charge my phone.
On the plus side, the bed was comfortable, the room was clean and the shower had adequate hot water.
The free airport shuttle arrived within a minute of schedule and got me to my flight on time.
If you're looking for a place to sleep that is ultra convenient to the airport for the night before a flight, then this is decent choice of hotels. If you're planning to stay any longer, I recommend going elsewhere.
