Yes, beverages are included. As is always the case with buffet service, sometimes individual items will run out -- and with the coffee machines, it's hard for them to tell when they're getting low. But if you find a machine has run out, tell someone and they will refill it as quickly as possible.

Yes you can email them on the website. I did as I had booked 2 rooms & wanted them close together. They emailed me back & said they couldn't guarantee anything. But the rooms were next door to each other.The staff are really nice & it's worth asking. Although I think most rooms have a good view but I'm not sure about the lower floors.

I looked at lots of ways to get to hotel from JFK before we left and decided to just get a taxi when we arrived. Best decision yet !. Its well organised at the taxi point and the cost is a fixed price fully publicised. Our driver was brilliant, very friendly and informative. The day we arrived was also the day the United Nations meeting began, traffic was a nightmare and yes the journey took longer than normal but the price was fixed. I'm sure the cost was $70 for two of us. Have tried shared buses before and it was a nightmare. Get a taxi.
