Sheraton Hotel JFK Airport

Sheraton Hotel JFKClean, comfortable rooms, great staff and a convenient shuttle that leaves every 30 minutes. the Sheraton Hotel at JFK gets great reviews from former guests and just missed our "best airport hotels" list by half a star. The on site restaurant (Rosemarys) is good and reasonably priced. Ammenities include 32" LCD tv's, a heated indoor pool, complimentary high speed internet access (by request) and a fitness center.

Insider tip: Arrive early if you're taking the shuttle - it only seats 7 and fills up fast. It's a 30 minute wait if you don't get a seat!

Ramada Plaza Hotel - JFK Airport

Ramada Plaza Hotel JFKThe good news is: The Ramada Plaza Hotel is close to Kennedy airport and offers free airport transportation, free parking and free wireless internet access. Now for the bad news: former guests have overwhelmingly rated this hotel a paltry 1.5 stars (out of 5) for various and sundry reasons and its #9 on TripAdvisor's list of the Top 10 Dirtiest Hotels in the USA for 2009. We'll spare you the details but let's say we can only hope the publicity prompts them to clean up their act (we'll be happy to revise our comments if and when they do!) We can't recommend this hotel, but if a little dirt and a few creepy-crawlies don't bother you, then go for it!
