We stayed there one night because it was close to JFK airport and we had a morning flight.
My boyfriend works for Marriott so we figured it would be decent and safe. The neighbor is not the best but location is close to airport.
We ate at the restaurant because we didn't know where it would good to go. Food was okay and waitress was very nice. Breakfast the next day was also decent.
We asked the front desk about the shuttle when we checked in and she said it runs about every 30 to 40 min. Asked for a time schedule but they didn't have one. It comes when it comes.
In the morning my boyfriend asked if the shuttle came and was trying to gauge around when the next one was coming. She said it should be soon. We went to wait about 1:45min before our flight and since others were waiting we figured it should be there soon. We asked about getting a taxi but front desk person said they shuttle should be here sooner than a taxi. The shuttle took so long and he went to terminal 4 first and then missed terminal 5 and had to go around again, by the time we got to the check in desk we just missed being able to get on flight.
The lesson we learned is if you can't get a set shuttle schedule, use your own discretion and take a cab or go 3 hrs before your flight. We only stayed here to try and be early but would have been better to take a cab from the city. Also an answer of "it should be here any minute" rather than a better time frame would have helped us to decide just to take a cab.
It was a $2300 dollar lesson in flight costs.
