“An Airport Hotel Winner”
Reviewed November 23, 2012

If you're hankering for a hotel very close to JFK, a friendly and accommodating staff and more than a comfortable room to rest your travel-weary soul, then this is the place for you. Add in free and fast Wi-Fi and easy access to the subway and you've got a great return on your $$. The highlight was a very comfortable bed w/elevated mattress -- you can easily sleep well here.

Clean, spacious rooms. Very helpful staff in a nice neighbourhood. Breakfast was very good and shuttle bus to airport was quick and frequent. Not too far out to use as a base for exploring New York either.

Room Tip: All rooms were great good views of the airport but all well soundproofed

Stayed at Hampton Inn on two separate nights during a recent holiday. Can't fault anything about both nights stays. Used the shuttle bus on both occasions with no problems. Friendly staff and clean rooms, with comfy beds. Can't ask for anything else.

I've stayed lots of times in New York JFK Airport, and usually the hotels that I've stayed in are outdated, adequate or not so bad. But this hotel was as if it was not in JFK, or even in New City. The reception staff were a delight to deal with, the room was very clean and roomy. The beds were huge, very comfortable with nice down and pillows. The bathroom was big with a tub and a nice shower with excelent water pressure. The room had a nice LCD TV and free WiFi, and they had a frequent shuttle to and from the airport terminals.
The only reason Im giving it a four star, is because I think the breakfast can use a little improvement.
Highly recommended.

Couldn't fault it really - expensive for what it is, but it is in New York. Shuttle bus is very handy for the airport, decent breakfast. Stayed twice in a two week period - second time was after Sandy and during a snowstorm. Hotel was full of people who had been made homeless and recovery workers, but everybody was good humoured.

The Hampton Inn is a decent hotel near JFK. I recommend it only for people who need a quick stopover at JFK because it is too far to commute quickly to downtown New York. To get to the city you'll either need to spend $50 for a cab, or take a shuttle from the hotel to the skytrain at the airport, then take the skytrain to the subway. You'll then have to change trains for most destinations, so this is not a simple process. It took us about an hour to get to Rockefeller Center this way, almost 90 minutes to get to the World Trade Center Memorial. The subway was crowded and involved longer waits than I expected so this was doable but not particularly convenient.

The hotel offers a free shuttle to the airport (on the hour and half hour) and from the airport to the hotel by calling from the skytrain. When we returned from our trip to the city, we had a very long wait for the shuttle, but our departure shuttle to the airport was on time.

The hotel is in a residential neighborhood and, unlike other airport hotels where we have stayed, there are very few places to eat nearby. The hotel does not have a restaurant and they recommended that we eat at the nearby Marriott or Hilton. There are no other eateries within walking distance, so I would suggest eating in the airport before going to the hotel. We picked up something while in the city, but as mentioned it's a long trip. The included breakfast was OK but nothing special.

The hotel is beginning to show its age but the rooms are comfortable enough. The front desk staff was not very friendly or helpful, both when I called from home requesting information about the hotel and upon arrival, but they had our reservation and the room was fine. One strange thing was that the bed was much higher off the ground than average, making it a little hard to get in and out of it.

Overall we found this hotel to be average but satisfactory. More friendly front desk personnel would have made our stay more enjoyable.

We booked just one night here for our late night arrival into JFK and we were glad we did as it was even later than we had anticipated by the time we left the airport complex. It wasn't as easy to find as we were led to believe at the car rental office but after a few detours we found the hotel and checked in, the front desk staff were helpful and friendly, even going out into the lot to confirm that we couldn't park where we had parked our car and would need to go back off site and park on the main road. The parking was our only niggle though, our room was on 12th floor and even though it was a bit tired, it was still quite spacious, clean and with a super comfy bed!!
Even when we arrived in the early hours of the morning, there was complimentary coffee in the lobby and it wasn't half bad!! In the morning there was a standard Hampton Inn buffet breakfast in the lobby which was enough to get us going and more than enough seating for everyone to feel comfortable. No problems with check out and by then we were able to bring our car back on site to get packed and hit the road. For the price and the location it was good.
