The Citadines Connect Fifth Avenue Hotel is approximately 16 miles from JFK Airport and 9 miles from LaGuardia Airport. Both are usually between a 30- to 45-minute drive in regular traffic.
This hotel is all about location, location, location — guests of the Citadines Connect can be snapping selfies in Times Square or Rockefeller Center, strolling Bryant Park or seeing a Broadway show within minutes of leaving the front door. Guests are also close to multiple subway lines as well as Grand Central Terminal for travel throughout New York.
Premiere Rooms here are about standard size for New York City (175 square feet and up) but most are outfitted with king beds, whereas many other similar hotels would only offer queen beds. Rooms also feature USB outlets for plugging in phones and tablets, plush bedding, 42-inch flat-screen TVs, in-room coffee makers and Wi-Fi.
There's also a continental breakfast each morning, a grab-and-go mini-cafe for snacks and drinks, along with a small business center for basics like printing boarding passes.
