About the Comfort Inn & Suites JFK Airport
Just four miles from JFK International Airport, the Comfort Inn & Suites in Ozone Park, Queens, is a popular choice among travelers on layover or catching early flights. With its free shuttle to the Jamaica train station, a transportation hub connecting to the Long Island Rail Road (LIRR) and the subway, it is also a convenient and affordable alternative to staying in Manhattan. (For guests who prefer to drive, it's 30 to 40 minutes to Midtown. Parking at the hotel is free.) If you have time to take a detour between the hotel and Manhattan, the LIRR and the subway provide convenient access to many of Brooklyn's most popular neighborhoods and destinations, including Brooklyn Heights, the DUMBO waterfront, Prospect Park, the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the brand-new Barclays Center.
The hotel's southwestern Queens locale allows guests the opportunity to visit many worthwhile attractions that might be a bit off the beaten track for those staying in Manhattan. Horse-racing fans – and gambling aficionados – can walk to the Aqueduct Racetrack and its Resorts World Casino, which has become the country's largest-grossing slot parlor since opening in 2011. A bit further south is the more bucolic setting of the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, a 9,000-acre haven where bird-watchers can view more than 330 avian species. (The refuge is part of the 27,000-acre Gateway National Recreation Area, which encompasses parts of Queens, Brooklyn and Staten Island in New York, and Monmouth County in New Jersey.) A few more miles south is Rockaway Beach, immortalized in a classic song by Queens punk legends the Ramones and the only beach in the city where it's possible to surf.
About ten miles to the north in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park, and near LaGuardia Airport, are most of the borough's more famous attractions, including Citi Field (home of the New York Mets), the National Tennis Center (site of the U.S. Open), the Queens Museum of Art, the New York Hall of Science, the Queens Zoo and the Queens Botanical Garden. The park was also the site of two World's Fairs, and two structures from the most recent fair in the sixties – the Unisphere and the New York State Pavilion – are the most iconic symbols of Queens to this day.
The hotel's helpful and friendly staff are used to guests checking in and out at odd hours, so they're particularly accommodating – whether they're providing hungry arrivals with a quick breakfast after the buffet has closed or sending the hotel’s free shuttle to pick up a guest whose flight landed later than scheduled. The complimentary hot breakfast includes eggs, waffles, yogurt, cereal and fresh fruit. The exercise room has a treadmill, weight machines and stationary bikes. The business center has high-speed Internet access as well as faxing and photocopying services. Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the hotel. All rooms have pillow-top mattresses, flat-screen TVs with cable and desks. Some rooms and suites have microwaves, refrigerators, sofa beds and hot tubs.
The Comfort Inn & Suites in Ozone Park, Queens, offers comfortable, reasonably priced accommodations to travelers looking for convenient access to JFK Airport. Savvy visitors to New York looking for more affordable options to Manhattan hotels can take advantage of the free shuttle service to travel into the city – while also being able to view some of the more eclectic, off-the-beaten-path attractions near the Comfort Inn's Queens location.
