The JFK Hilton has a very convenient connection to the airport. Upon arrival, their free shuttle bus will pick you up at the Federal Circle, for your departure it will set you off at your terminal. However, going to the city from there is not so easy. If you use the shuttle, you have to pay at least five dollars for the AirTrain, and it will take you about 45 minutes by subway to reach the city (42nd Street). A late night taxi back to the hotel will cost you 75 dollars.
The reception of the hotel is friendly and competent, as is all of their staff. The rooms are spacious by New York City standards, the bedding is very good, you have a minibar, complimentary coffee and tea in your room. The facilities of the hotel are more modest. There is a small swimming pool (about 9 m long) and a fitness room, but there is no room to change your clothes and no lockers. The Executive lounge is open only a few hours for breakfast and in the evening. There are a few tidbits to eat, soft drinks, and they will serve you wine. Drinks like whisky and cocktails are available at a charge. The lobby restaurant serves good food, but you wouldn’t go there from elsewhere on an evening out.
All in all, a friendly hotel giving you a good night’s sleep next to the airport. When considering it for a stay in New York, you have to take into account the time and expense of getting into the city.
