COURTYARD BY MARRIOTT

From JFK Airport

A taxi or rideshare will typically take around 20 minutes.

You can use the JFK Airtrain which will get you to Jamaica Center for $8.25 (the OMNY card will work here, but this fare won’t count towards the weekly cap). From there, catch the Q30 or Q31 bus on the corner of Sutphin Boulevard & Archer Avenue (adjacent to the Long Island Railroad building) to Utopia Parkway & Horace Harding Expressway (around 25 minutes). The bus will drop you off across the street from the hotels. Since that street happens to be the Long Island Expressway, you’ll have to walk under the overpass, cross the street, and make a right. The hotels will be two blocks away. The whole walk will take around 3 minutes.

A taxi or rideshare will typically take less than 15 minutes.
