We stayed at the Hilton JFK on 3/17 for one night, after arriving back in the US from 40 hours of flights and layovers on the way back from Bali. The hotel has apparently been open about a week, so Tripadvisor reviews prior to around 3/10 are likely not for the Hilton, but rather for whatever the previous francise was.
It's definitely been refurbished. We were given a room on the 12th floor which was a few doors down from the executive lounge. The hallways were fresh and the room had new furniture and windows. It looked quite nice, although the furniture had a bit of the Hampon Inn look. The bathroom was small, but nicely done with a Euro-style tile shower which worked well.
There was some confusion with the opening hours of the executive lounge and availabilty of breakfast. We were told that breakfast would be available from 6am in the lounge, but the front desk later told us that it was closed on the weekend. After some confusion whether diamond members would get some sort of breakfast in the ground floor restaurant, the front desk agent comped us a full breakfast buffet, which worked out well.
Location is very near to JFK, although the taxi driver was somewhat confused as he didn't realize that there was a Hilton there now. Showing him the address helped. We didn't use the free shuttle, as this apparently involved an Airtrain ride to the Federal Center station to access the hotel shuttles and we were just too tired to go through the process.
