Where there is a major airport, there are hotels to accommodate travelers. The John F. Kennedy in southeastern New York City has hotels near it to fit any budget. For travelers who do not want to sit in traffic on their trips to and from the airport, the best hotels near JFK are those that are less than a mile away from the airport and offer complimentary 24-hour airport shuttle services.
Fairfield Inn New York JFK Airport
About one-half mile away from the JFK Airport, the Fairfield Inn is a good option for those on a budget. Guest rooms come with up to two beds and are decorated modernly with bold orange, lime green and white colors, as well as wooden accents. The windows at the Fairfield Inn are soundproof, so the commercial airplanes flying overhead are less noticeable. In addition to transporting guests to the JFK Airport, the Fairfield Inn also provides transportation services to and from the subway station and local mall. When guests book a Park Here, Fly There package, they can park their car at the hotel for 12 nights free of charge, eliminating the need to pay for airport garage parking.
