Hints and tips

The hotel's shuttle service can be reserved for transportation to John F. Kennedy International Airport in advance, and it is significantly cheaper than taking a taxi to the airport. While parking on the street is free in this area, there are street sweepers who work between 11:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., so cars should be moved during that time to avoid a ticket.
