Reviewed 30 April 2014

Recent stay was very good. Arrived after long international flight into terminal 7 and took free airtrain to Federal Circle where I called the shuttle.Driver arrived very promptly.
The executive room I booked was on the top (12th) floor and was very clean and comfortable with a nicely renovated bathroom featuring a spacious walk in shower, great quality bedding and towels.
Highlight was the excellent breakfast provided in the executive lounge from 6am with friendly staff and an automatic coffee machine that dispensed great expresso!
Next day I used the regular shuttle (that leaves every half hour) for transfer to my next flight.All very easy.

Room Tip: Executive rooms are on the top floor and are a good choice.

My family and I stayed for I might prior to our flight early the next morning. All the staff we met were cordial & accommodating to the best of their ability. We were made comfortable considering it was a one night stay... Thank you!

My wife and I stayed at the Hilton JFK overnight before flying overseas. The room was fine -- furnishings in pretty good condition, comfortable bed, very quiet soundproof windows (although we did hear noise from the next room through the connecting door -- I recommend asking for a room without a connecting door), and okay but small bathroom. The main reason we chose this hotel was that it has a restaurant which is open all day, compared to some hotels like the Marriott
Courtyard which are open only for breakfast and dinner. The food was actually pretty good. Check-in was fine, and the front desk staff were very friendly. I would stay here again.

I hope you had a safe flight and again, "thank you".

We had 2 rooms for 1 night as we arrived into JFK at 10:30pm. We waited about 10 minutes after calling for the hotel shuttle to pick us up. The front desk was very friendly and gave us all the information we needed and arranged for a private car to take us to visit St John's University the next morning as our 2nd son has been accepted there. We had a quick late dinner & drinks in the restaurant. The burgers were good. Both our rooms were large, clean and nicely furnished. The sheets were of very high quality and were nicer than the sheets in our rooms at The Palace Towers in NYC the rest of the week! It was very quiet. No hotel noise and no airport noise! I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel for the night if you are flying into our out of JFK. Our son ended up choosing St John's (still can't believe he turned down Hawaii!) so I am sure we will be back in the near future for freshman orientation.

Clean, friendly and classy. They do have frequent shuttle to and forth between airport and hotel which is really convenient. On the flip side the do have very little vegan/vegetarian food options in their menu. I had difficulty finding something to eat for breakfast. Hopefully they will have more options next time I visit.

I have spent many nights in the JFK area for business and the Hilton is by far the best hotel option. Dana at the bar is magnificent, and if you have access to the Executive Club, Robert provides first class service. Shuttle service is prompt and courteous, front desk employees provide excellent service regardless of status, based on my observations, but they have also recognized my diamond status and treated me accordingly. Super comfortable beds - awesome pillows!

We got stranded at the JFK airport due to airline issues and the airline put us up at the Hilton New York JFK in Jamaica. The airport has a shuttle to/from the airport so that was convenient. There is a lovely lobby and ample seating for meeting and visiting with people. Additionally, there is a bar and restaurant in the lobby. Food at the restaurant was reasonably priced and tasty. Our room was reasonably sized and nicely decorated. The desk was good for working on the computer as the lamps had pass-through outlets. This was a good hotel for business travel. The only drawback I can see is the "pay" parking lot for our friend who came to pick us up. You have to pay in the lobby at a machine in order to get out of the lot. The parking was a bit pricey. Other than that is was a nice place to spend the night after being delayed by the airline.
