Just over 1 mile from John F. Kennedy International Airport, the Holiday Inn Express at JFK offers the convenience of being close to the airport for early departures (or perhaps late-night flights, when you need a place to crash before driving home or to your next destination). The chain hotel also offers free shuttle services to and from the airport, as well as free parking onsite — everything you need to ensure your travels go smoothly.
Other conveniences include complimentary Wi-Fi and a hot breakfast buffet, available daily. Breakfast includes standard favorites, such as eggs, bacon, pancakes, and fruit, plus coffee, an assortment of teas, and juice.
Guestrooms are equipped with one king or two double beds, and cribs and rollaway beds are available upon request. Coffeemakers and flat-screen TVs can also be found in all hotel rooms.
Have a long layover and want to explore? Head to the Queens Botanical Gardens, about 15 minutes away. You can also catch a train (from Jamaica Train Station) into Manhattan; it’s a 20-minute ride or so.
