My primary reasoning for choosing the JFK Sheraton Hotel was that I had a very early flight in the morning, and I didn’t want to spend a lot of money to stay in the city.
Admittedly, staying in the city would’ve saved me the stress of anticipating staying at a hotel near the airport. The last time that I stayed at in airport hotel near JFK was back in 2004, and that sketchy experience still gives me the heebie-jeebies. Thankfully, a lot has changed since then.
A full review of my 1 night stay at the Sheraton Hotel at the JFK Airport
Getting to this hotel from the airport is fairly easy via the shuttle bus. No, it’s not as convenient as being connected directly to the airport (like the Paris Airport Sheraton is), but it’s not a big deal. Unless it’s cold. Then it’s probably going to suck as you wait for the bust to arrive.
The JFK Sheraton is situated in a fairly new cluster of hotels right on the airport perimeter. From the outside, this place looked clean, fairly new, and very inviting.
Getting to my room
Why I can recommend the JFK Sheraton
For what it was (a brief one night stay near the airport), I couldn’t have asked for anything more. Just the fact that it wasn’t located in a run down section of the neighborhood surrounded by chain-link fences and barbed wire made it an enjoyable experience.
The hotel staff was super friendly, and my room was absolutely perfect for such a short one night stay. I would definitely stay here again.
Is there anything that I didn’t like about this property?
Truthfully, there isn’t much to complain about. You might hear some grumblings from me if I was arriving in my own car and needed a place to park – there didn’t seem to be a whole lot of parking available, but I would assume that most people who stay here would arrive via the shuttle bus or a taxi.
I can’t even complain about noise from the airport itself, considering that it’s right on the airport perimeter. JFK operates 24/7, but I heard nary a peep from departing aircraft during the night. Personally, I wouldn’t complain even if I did. You know me – I’d be standing at the window doing a Top Gun style fist pump for each departing aircraft!
