The front desk crew really had warm big smiles and a very warm big welcome. I'm not used to this level of friendliness in New York City, and it was wonderful! My preference for a view was granted, and anything I needed for information was readily provided.
My room was about in the middle of the hotel, overlooking the airport. Everything was functional and comfortable, especially the bed! Despite being so close to the airport, I never heard a thing from outside, including thunder, planes, or traffic. For an airport hotel, this one was very quiet even in the late night and early mornings when travelers might be arriving or departing.
The only negative was the extraordinarily loud AC unit, which I simply turned off. It was a bit warm, but not the end of the world. The noise has been reported by other guests and I'm hoping by my next visit the management will have done somethinig about this unfortunate piece of machinery.
I had the same cheerful and friendly greetings when I checked out as when I arrived, and at least the start of the vacation went very well at a very early hour of the morning.
I did not use the hotel's airport shuttle, having concerns about it being full or delayed, but rather had a private limo to the airport.
The area the hotel is located in doesn't look all that inviting to go for a walk, especially for those alone. If you need exercise, there is the hotel's fitness center.
I would definitely stay here again, and had a very good stay overall.
