Subject: Re: JFK airport hotel for early flight?
Hi Maddy,

We had a similar situation last summer and stayed at the Courtyard Marriott by the airport. It's on a little strip in the middle of nowhere, surrounded by houses with bars on the windows, etc. Hardly any amenities--I don't think any of the hotels on that little strip had a swimming pool--and we were there with four kids who would have liked some form of recreation.

The room was fine, clean and spacious and reasonably quiet. There was a list of takeout places in the room, and we ordered in a pizza and watched a movie. I wouldn't recommend it for a special occasion, but it was fine for what it was, and they got us to the airport on time.
