We had a connected flight via New York from Costa Rica back to Germany which got cancelled due to snow storms. The airline was not able to help us with a room and everything was kind of chaotic at JFK airport. Luckily the shuttle but dropped us of at Jamaica Street station an we ended up there with two huge bags when a local advised us this hotel since it was just around the corner. They had just a free rooms left and as you can imagine during snow storms and more than 600 cancelled flights all hotels next to the airport have been booked out.
Khalil, one of the guys at the reception was super friendly and we could store our luggage for the next full day at the hotel. Since our flight back was scheduled for the early evening we could spend a half day in Manhattan to do some shopping. Subway was almost in front of the door with a direct connection to Times Square (about 35 minutes).
The breakfast was included which I never had before in New York - yeah, and it was actually really good too.
