Howard Johnson Joins Growing List of Hotels in Jamaica
The 7-story hotel, located at Archer Avenue and 139th Street, directly behind the AirTrain station, has 61 guest rooms, said the owner, Vipul Patel.
“The reason we chose this location is that it’s easy to commute to the airport,” Patel said. “It also takes only 30 minutes to Manhattan by subway and it's even faster by the LIRR.”
The prices at the 3-star hotel start at $109.99 for a room with one queen-size bed.
The hotel, Patel said, aims to serve business travelers by providing them with a meeting room and a 24-hour business center with free Wi-Fi.
Two more hotels are planned for the neighborhood, including a Sheraton.
