Just a quick review. We were scheduled to catch the early morning flight out of JFK and since security could take time we wanted to be there well in time. We were staying in New Jersey and hence instead of getting in the middle of the night and catching a cab to JFK, we decided to check in for the night in a hotel near the airport. Garden Inn turned out to be a reasonably maintained property and our rooms were functional and clean. The staff was very warm and helpful, since nearly everyone had the same questions- would you provide complimentary drop off to the airport? what are the shuttle timings? when does the first shuttle leave?
to their credit they answered all the questions without the mechanical tone or response ( the "yes, dear" tone) and made us feel assured. I would like to mention that we asked if there was a microwave that we could use to heat some food to which not only did the receptionist show us the microwave but suggested that we may consider having our food in the courtyard rather than cooped up in the room. a very welcome suggestion.
their wake up service was punctual, the shuttle on time and we had no problems though we were carrying quite a bit of luggage.
all in all, if one has an early mooring flight to catch out of JFK and needs his/her sleep; then this is the hotel for you.
the first shuttle leaves at 4 am and then every half hour. the shuttle can accommodate about 10 passengers so one needs to take that in account.
