JFK has no shortage of airport hotels. But Hyatt Regency JFK International Airport is a must stopover in New York. Barely a year old, it is the first four-star establishment to settle in the region for more than 50 years.
And it doesn’t disappoint — this eight-story, 400-room glass and steel structure impresses with its cutting-edge design and entertainment galore. Here’s why you’ll want to add it to your travel plans ASAP.
This is the airport hotel jackpot. With a chic gold-hued lobby connected to Resorts World, New York’s only casino, plus an abundance of nightlife from art exhibits to musical performances, you can say bon voyage to layover boredom for Well. There are over 6,500 slot machines and electronic games to lose yourself in for hours of pre- and post-flight fun. And come weekends, Bar 360 turns into an epic show where you can hear the best local live bands and top DJs.
Stopover in luxury? Yes please! Spacious, light-flooded rooms are more like stylish city apartments. Take a suite and you might want to delay your flight. Expect palace-sized digs with floor-to-ceiling windows offering jaw-dropping views of the Manhattan skyline. You can gaze up at the Empire State Building from the separate living space featuring a chic kitchenette, plush sofas, and a large dining table.
Enjoy and fly. Delicious food abounds at this airport hotel. Highlights include RW Prime where you can enjoy USDA-grade dry-aged meats and fresh seafood. Or head to the take-out market filled with savory delights, before heading off. And for the ultimate indulgence, Sugar Factory is on every sweet tooth’s bucket list. The famous coffee and confectionery is a must, from “Insane” milkshakes to old-fashioned sundaes.
