JFK gets Crowne Plaza

Previously a Doubletree by Hilton, IHG has opened the Crowne Plaza JFK Airport New York City. It is located at the junction of the Belt Highway and Van Wyck Expressway, about 2.5 miles from the airport’s central area. It claims to be the only full service JFK airport hotel to offer both complimentary internet access and parking.

A significant multi-million Dollar renovation funded by ERG JFK Hotel, the property owner, features a unique interior design with runway murals on the lobby ceilings, guest room carpets and accent walls, and a modern glass design for the exterior façade.

The nine-storey Crowne Plaza is the brand’s seventh in the metro New York City area. It has 330 guestrooms, including five one-bedroom suites and 14 junior suites, and is the only JFK airport hotel to offer a Presidential Suite. Guests will enjoy the upscale and sophisticated bar and lounge services as well as a 24-hour lobby market, “Jet”, offering freshly-made sandwiches, salads and snacks. Approximately 5,000sq ft of meeting space is available, including 10 meeting rooms and a ballroom.
