"Clean, convenient hotel by JFK airport"
I was happy with the cleanliness, convenience and comfort of the Holiday Inn Express Hotel. The shuttle to and from JFK was very fast (8 minutes door to door) and convenient. I called ahead from Federal Circle (take the AirTrain from arrival terminal), but didn't need to as there was a shuttle waiting. Also, the shuttle back to the airport leaves the hotel every hour on the hour and drops you off at your Terminal (no need to take the AirTrain which costs $5 per person).
The room was very clean, comfortable and quiet (considering it was very close to the freeway and airport).
Breakfast was a bit chaotic as several people were trying to grab breakfast and a place to sit. Food consisted of cooked flat eggs, creamed mushroom sauce, turkey sausage paddy, different breads, yogourt, pancakes, select fruit, coffee, tea, and juices. Most of the food was ok, but the cinnamon buns were fantastic!
Staff were very friendly and helpful. They offered us delivery pamphlets on check-in, and called our room around 7:30 pm to make sure that we had everything we needed and were ok.
