Great hotel, very friendly staff. Especially the bell boys at the entrance. Always available for info and tips.
Room was more than ok, spacious bathroom, complimentary coffee maker, complimentary WiFi, etc. ..
Hotel is located in Garden City, Long Island. The LIRR (Long Island Rail Road) station is just across the street and will bring you to Manhattan (Penn Station) in about 45 to 60 minutes. It is not a direct connection, though and you will have to transfer at Jamaica station.
Jamaica station is also the final stop for the JFK air train. Count 45 minutes to get from the hotel to the nearest terminal at JFK.
You may think this is a lot, but I can guarantee you will be happy to be in a luxurious hotel, away from the crowd in a very lovely neighbourhood. As an extra tip, I recommend you take the hotel bikes and bike away in the streets around the hotel. Very lovely Long Island-style houses, very clean, etc. ..
