NEW YORK—The Crowne Plaza JFK Airport New York City hotel has opened.
The property has undergone a significant multimillion-dollar renovation funded by ERG JFK Hotel, LLC, featuring a unique interior design with runway murals on the lobby ceilings, guest room carpeting and accent walls, and a modern glass design for the exterior façade.
Located at 138-10 135th Ave., the nine-story Crowne Plaza hotel is the brand’s seventh in the metro New York City area. The hotel offers amenities that include complimentary Internet access, free parking, extended dining and bar service hours, a fitness center, a Zen room for yoga and meditation and the brand’s Sleep Advantage program.
“We’re pleased to grow the Crowne Plaza brand in such a convenient location for business travelers," said Gina LaBarre, VP/Americas Brand Management, Upscale Brands, IHG.
The hotel has 330 guestrooms, including five one-bedroom suites and 14 junior suites, and a Presidential Suite. Guests will enjoy the upscale and sophisticated bar and lounge services as well as a 24-hour lobby market offering sandwiches, salads and snacks. Approximately 5,000 sq. ft. of meeting space is available, including 10 meeting rooms and a ballroom.
“We’re incredibly excited to join the Crowne Plaza brand, which we feel is a strong fit for a global hub like JFK,” said Felix Maina, the hotel’s general manager. “Our close proximity to one of the world’s most heavily trafficked airports enables us to attract both business and leisure travelers as well as airline crews and passengers.”
The hotel’s Idlewild Restaurant pays homage to the airport’s original name. Guests can enjoy continental cuisine with a variety of menu items for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and extended service hours.
Additionally, the hotel features the Crowne Plaza Sleep Advantage program that encompasses the entire sleep experience, from training staff on how to create and maintain a restful environment to providing innovative products and services. Program components include signature bedding, guaranteed wake-up calls, designated quiet zones and aromatherapy.
