Stayed here June 22, 2007 for one night before an international flight from JFK. I stay at a lot of Hamptons, and this one is certainly up to the standard of typical properties.
First a travel tip - to get to the hotel from JFK, you must call for the shuttle, and then take the Airtrain to Federal Circle. The hotel shuttle picks up there, not at the terminals
There are two Airtrains; one serves only JFK terminals, and the other goes to subway and rail stations (two different lines do this - Jamaica and Howard Beach).
Take either the Jamaica or Howard Beach Airtrain to get to Federal Circle. It is the first stop off the airport. There is no charge unless you continue on to one of the rail stations.
On return, the hotel shuttle will take you back to your terminal. I don't know why they don't pick up at the terminals; go figure! Maybe it would take too long.
But it took me awhile to figure this system out and get to the hotel. There are few signs or directions to help.
Now back to the hotel.
My room was very clean, and the amenities of the Holiday Inn next door (restaurant, bar, and pool) were easily accessible by connected hallway. Even though the hotel was full, I experienced no noise or disturbance issues.
I did find the staff to be somewhat indifferent, but for an overnight airport stay this was not an issue. If I had stayed longer or had higher needs or expectations it may have been a problem.
In summary, this is an excellent choice for meeting an overnight JFK travel need. It is in an inconvenient and inhospitable location with no services nearby, and thus might not suit for a longer stay, or for someone looking for a higher level of service and amenities. If you're going to be in NYC for a while, you could find a better choice in a more convenient location.
