Of course, there are plenty of other hotels to choose from. We recommend staying in the midtown area, as the ceremony, reception and other wedding weekend events will be held nearby.  


There are several ways to get from the airports surrounding New York City to the hotel.

Taking a yellow NYC taxi from the airport to the hotel might be the easiest. 

Taxis at JFK Airport charge a flat fare of $52 for trips between the airport and Manhattan. Taxis impose a $4.50 surcharge during peak hours (4-8 p.m. weekdays), for a fare of $56.50 + tip. 

You can also go to the NYC Airporter site and book a shuttle bus to and from the airports. Tickets are $16 each way and go directly to and from the airport. The drop of in Manhattan is on 41st and Lexington, only 1 block away from the hotel. The shuttle leaves about every 15 - 30 minutes from each location.
