“Surprisingly upscale and comfortable, but mediocre restaurant”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

The Hampton Inn at JFK was surprisingly comfortable and tastefully designed, despite being the 'little brother' of the Hilton right next door. The service was professional, the rooms were clean, and the reception and lounge area was more than just functional with its updated design and decor. They also serve free coffee, tea and hot chocolate all day and night, which is pretty convenient for travelers flying out of JFK. The free airport shuttle (with trips every 30 minutes) was also convenient. They also have a storage area for luggage. We were flying internationally and had some large suitcases, which the bellhop stored for us.

The hotel shares a restaurant with the Hilton, accessible via an access hallway through the Hilton's function rooms. Again, the decor and furnishings were modern, with big windows and high ceilings, which is always refreshing after a visit to a crowded city like Manhattan. The service was excellent, although I must say the food seemed better when reading from the menu than when we actually sat down to eat it. There are nearby local options in Jamaica, NY, but we didn't have time to try any of them out.

For its convenience, clean rooms and bathrooms and well-appointed facilities, we will definitely stay here again, but will consider just ordering a burger at their restaurant next time.

We received a warm welcome at reception, and the lobby area is pleasant and modern. Unfortunately though, we were booked in to a smoking room. I was travelling with my wife and two children (6 & 7), so asked if we could change to a non-smoking room. We were told there weren't any no-smoking rooms left, so after a 7hr drive from Montreal, we decided to suck it up- we were only staying for one night.

Two nights later, and our luggage still smells of stale cigrarette smoke....

Apart from that, the room itself was OK. It's close to the airport, but not in a great area- no restaurants nearby, etc.

Breakfast was OK, but the breakfast area was busy and there was nowhere for us to sit.

The free wifi worked well, and we didn't experience any dropped connections.

Unfortunately, the smoking room soured our experience, and despite the otherwise decent service, we wouldn't go back.

My fiance' and I were attending a function in Brooklyn, but wanted to find a hotel away from the madding crowd. We found the ideal place to be the Hampton Inn. Price was just right. Ambience was excellent. Clean environment. No next-door-neighbor noise. Warm, welcoming and friendly staff. Breakfast was excellent. Easy to get to Brooklyn. Our only problem was parking space. Overall our experience was terrific, and felt a sense of safety. Thanks to the wonderful staff.

Room Tip: Non-smoking room is excellent.

Spent 3 days here en-route to St. Thomas. Hotel was very good with usual Hampton Inn breakfast which is good enough to set you up for the morning. The shuttle from the airport via Federal Circle worked fine apart from one instance when we were left waiting approx 40 minutes at 1 am. On arriving at Hotel we were informed that there had been a change of shift and that was the reason for the delay.
Staff were generally very pleasant [ apart from the late shuttle driver who had attitude]. It is possible to use the Hotel as a base to visit New York but it takes approx. 40 - 50 minutes to reach the city depending on your destination, but if you offset this with the cost of staying in Manhatten then it is worth considering.
All in all, a very pleasant stay and i would recommend this hotel.

Perfectly decent cheap hotel close to JFK terminals, quick checkin, no queues, clean rooms, free coffee in reception

This hotel is clean, quiet, comfy beds, fast check out and a free shuttle bus every half hour to the airport, starts from 5am

Basic, clean and friendly - perfect for an overnight near the airport for an early flight

Room Tip: High floor above street

After a very long day of traveling and chaos, it was an exceptional gift to have met Krystle! Stranded at the Hampton Inn at JFK with no luggage and many important meetings to attend to after the Swiss Air flight was cancelled last minute, Krystle managed to find a conference room for us and tended to all of the details to relieve the incredible stress we were feeling. She made us fell like we were at the Ritz with her attentiveness and hospitality, and she turned a miserable situation into a pleasant situation. I can't thank her enough for her time and efforts!!

On my way to the Caribbean, I had an overnight layover in NYC –JFK airport. I wanted to pick a hotel near the airport, but also comfortable and hassle-free. I chose an overnight in NYC rather than Miami in the hopes of seeing one of my dearest friends. The Hampton Inn was instrumental in achieving these ends. I want to thank Ms. Zapata in particular for helping a tired and frenzied traveler see one of her best friends in the world. Ms. Zapata arranged a car service into Manhattan, which allowed me to meet my friend for dinner, and get back in time for a nap before waking up for my flight the next day. The shuttle service, which runs every half hour in the morning starting at 4am, was quick and easy to use. Although, I have been a bit hesitant to visit hotels, I only have positive words for this experience. I would recommend this hotel again, particularly for JFK layovers. Thank you again, for helping me achieve a memory that's priceless.
