My husband wanted to stay here on our staycation to the Rockaways because he liked the funky vibe on the website We booked one of the studio rooms based on the photos First the rooms are A LOT smaller than they look in photos

There weren’t any closets or storage spaces in the room, so our stuff was all over the whole trip There weren’t even any shelves or nightstands or anything near the bed, so we had nowhere except the floor or under our pillows to put our phones during the night Also there was a cute hanging chair in the website photos, which was one of the reasons we booked this specific room, but when we got there it had clearly broken sometime before we arrived (the chain was still there) and been replaced by a regular chair – taking up more of the scant floor space The bed was only a double bed, as nothing bigger would’ve fit in the room, but it was a bit of a tight squeeze Also the hotel is above a bar/restaurant that is open and blasts music until late – to the extent that we could hear and identify the songs through the floor The windows were thin or not well-insulated or something, because we could hear EVERYTHING on the street (and it was a very busy street) Also the blinds on the windows let in a ton of light on either side, and there weren’t any curtains Needless to say, with all the noise and the light we didn’t sleep great the whole tripPros: great location, close to the beach, good food nearby, check in/out self-sufficient via codesCons: everything else

Mold that made me physically sick, roaches crawling the bathroom walls and an owner/ operator that ignored and blew off my complaints I was diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and bronchitis after two nights in Room #2 The smell of mold was overwhelming

The host did not one single thing to help me I honestly thought I was dying of COVID and spent $150 at an urgent care center I was up coughing all night It has been three days and my voice has not returned This place is deadly

We had a wonderful stay over the holiday weekend! One of the biggest pluses to this place is the guest parking We’ve been coming to Rockaway Beach for years and have sometimes spent HOURS trying to find parking I can’t say what a good feeling it was to be able to pull straight in to the hotel, among the sea of cars and foot traffic

It’s amazing to not have to worry about finding a parking spot and no longer being immobilized for fear of losing that parking spot The hotel itself was quaint and quirky, in a good way We had a seamless check in process (all automated) and never had to communicate with the host, or anyone for that matter – just the way we like it It appears that they are opening a restaurant downstairs but I’m not sure if it’s affiliated with the hotel It’s just one more thing to be excited for This was one of the most pleasant stays I’ve had since coming to the Rockaways With all the changes happening on the peninsula, the High Tide is a much needed breath of fresh air We can’t wait to be back!

Excellent hospitality and accomodations Stayed only one night but the staff were friendly, the grounds were well taken care of, and the room was perfect Clean, spacious, and everything was in like new condition

The bathroom, shower and linens were immaculate Breakfast was continental but everything was fresh and delicious I would absolutely stay here again!

Jodi H

The hotel suite was very nice and roomy The staff was except is only The desk staff was very helpful, friendly, and kind

The young man who took care of the public bathrooms in the morning did a great job keeping them clean The breakfast staff was very nice and kept everything stocked and clean I highly recommend this Hampton!

Dan Schwartz

If in Rockville Center this is the best property to stay at if you can get a room and pay the premium price they charge to stay here Very quiet overall Beautiful center breakfast dining area with open space looking up the top of the multi floor building

Clean and large room and bathroom Very comfortable beds and pillows Breakfast was typical hotel buffet style but the waffles here are very good (unlike some other hotels in the area) Staff was super polite and accommodating They even bake fresh cookies everyday they give out at the front desk There is no pool here and we did not notice an excersize room, but didn’t ask, so check before booking if that is a need The only issue we had was our shower control handle was loose and would change temperature during ashower I mentioned it to the front desk but it was never fixed Other than that, an excellent place to stay if in the area

The staff here is amazing! They were so accommodating and gave us a wonderful room during our stay I believe it was Nicole and Erin that assisted us at the front desk and they were lovely! Our room was clean, spacious, and overlooked the Coliseum We stayed here for a concert at Jones Beach Amphitheater and it was conveniently located to the highway and not too far from the venue!

Bradley Tatro

Stayed here for a concert at Jones Beach Theater It’s also ideal if you’re going to the coliseum Easy to get to as it’s right off the highway Plenty of parking

Nice big lobby with a bar snack center and seating available Check in was easy and the staff was friendly and attentive Our room was clean and quiet It also has event/meeting rooms Very good experience and will definitely stay here again

Justice M

What can I say, the lobby was updated and pleasant At the bar you’d have to fight to get a drink and get a bartender to even acknowledge you, but that’s not the bad part When I entered my room it was an “upgraded” room

The audacity for them to call that an updated room it looked like a hotel from the 90s and not in a good way Stained carpet and an odor During my stay I couldn’t in the room, I was way too uncomfortable, come to find out there was an outbreak in my hotel room Do yourself a favor, bring a beach chair and a blanket you’d be better off Their beds are infested with bugs that you’ll bring home I’m quite sure they didn’t change my sheets before I arrived and I took them home Never again

Very friendly and helpful staff! I stay in this location in Queens when I visit with my relatives who live nearby We first got a room on the 6th floor, but there was a strong smell of smoke there (guests don’t comply with the restrictions

), so we were moved to the ground floor, right across from the cafeteria, where it was noisy We lived with that for the 5 days we were there, but I would recommend avoiding that floor The breakfast didn’t always include all the items that I would expect, but Assitan, who works in the kitchen, really made a difference for us by going beyond what she had to in order to improve our breakfast as much as she could That really made a difference for me in how I view this entire stay, and I hope that the hotel management rewards such individuals

Feedback From Real Customers


I can’t say enough about how amazing this hotel is! Everything was great from check-in to check-out! The room was very new and clean with sleek, mid century modern decor I dined at the Paris Cafe for dinner where the food and service were terrific! Make sure you visit Connie and have a drink It’s definitely a fun feel in there

I especially loved the TWA history exhibits throughout the hotel – a very cool touch The best part of course – the convenience of being at the airport and being able to RELAX A lovely property overall!

Nansie Van der Hout

We spent many an hour at the TWA terminal as a family back in the 60’s as my father flew for TWA, so it was very touching to return to the building The staff was very helpful and accommodating, everyone seemed to be in a good mood Our room had a runway view and I could have stayed up all night just watching the planes land and take-off

We enjoyed the Connie bar, it brought back many fond memories The bathroom was large and ours had 2 sinks so it made getting ready the next morning so easy There was no ice machine, so we had to call down to the front desk for ice, which was delivered to the room It’s nice to be able walk around the hotel and see all the displays, almost like a hotel inside a museum They had a TWA gift shop, but it only had a limited amount of sizes and although there were sweaters on display, they weren’t available at the shop We really enjoyed our visit and if you have any history with TWA in your past it’s worth a stop Be ready to pay $50 for parking and way too much for all the additional taxes and fees, but that’s NYC I guess

Mitch Lacey

The place is amazing How it’s been transformed from an airline terminal into a hotel is top notch The history of the building is something every aspiring architect should visit

If you’re an aviation fanatic or a history buff Definitely visit this place My only complaint is that they can definitely improve the service The people are really nice, it just seems to lack the foundation of what true service means in the hospitality industry However, don’t let that stop you in visiting

This hotel deserves 6 stars, but 5 will have to suffice We needed a hotel last second after our flight was canceled out of JFK and this was the only hotel that had rooms available Took a shot booking here simply wanting a bed instead of sleeping in the airport terminal

All our winter clothes were stuck in the airport and the kind gentleman at this hotel at the front desk literally gave me the jacket off his back to go grab a bite down the street in 10 degree weather Even sent their shuttle to pick us up at the restaurant to go back to the hotel at 12:30am so we wouldn’t have to walk in the frigid weather Incredible kindness The breakfast the next morning was a nice touchGreat spot if you need a clean, safe place to crash around JFK Seemed like a mom and pop kind of place Top notch… super grateful for these people after a brutal travel day

Brandie Foster

I LOVE this hotel! It’s kind of old, BUT it’s extremely clean every time I stay here and the bed is comfortable and there’s a fridge and microwave in every room I think the excellent customer service can’t be beat! Every single person I encountered here from the van driver, the front desk and the cleaning staff are soo nice and helpful I’ve stayed here about 5 times for work (flight attendant) and will continue coming here

The only thing I don’t love is there is no coffee maker in the room so have to get dressed and go downstairs to get my coffee, but all the other good stuff makes up for that

Tamara Stump

Not sure why the bad reviews My stay was great Staff was nice and helpful

The room was clean, beds comfortable etc As far as breakfast it was fine for a quick bite, if you want a fancy breakfast then stay at a $400 a night hotel The breakfast is basic and something to get you by, its not meant to be anything else People complain about it not being healthy and then said they went to Burger King 🤔 Ummm ok, as if that is healthy If you want a decent stay, reasonable price then this is the place They even have a coin operated laundry so you can wash your clothes

Our family loved staying here! You feel like you are home All of the staff is kind and go out of their way to be helpful They go above and beyond to make sure you and your family are comfortable

The rooms are super clean, on site laundry was great, the indoor pool was great for the kids, and in the evenings it is great to sit outside by the fire pitThis hotel and staff should be a model for other hotels on how to be clean and provide excellent service!

My first point of contact was Jessica in sales She worked with me on the menu and making sure we stayed within our budget She is quick to respond to questions and extremely accommodating!Antonella and Kenia from food and beverage service ran our corporate BBQ event and they are the most amazing team! They were extremely helpful and went above and beyond!This venue is a great place to stay and to host an event

Truly a wonderful experience

Christopher Abreu

This hotel is very nice! Comfortable and clean room, floors are well kept, and the grounds are very decorative Minor issues with my stay: bathroom sink handle was loose, new parking charge implemented (complimentary when I had made the reservation), and some communication issues I called prior to the reservation and was told breakfast was buffet style, then during check in I learned it was made to order and a separate charge

I must have missed something but this along with the new parking charge had me stressed out the night of check in Fortunately the daily parking charge was removed during check out with receipt of my email reservation

My group of 5 recently spent the night prior to our early morning departure from JFK airport Our travel companions had booked a 1 BR and were accompanied by their teenaged daughter When they checked in and discovered that the bedroom was not private from the living area, the daughter began to feel anxious about being able to get a good night’s sleep due to her parents’ snoring

I inquired about upgrading my room, since I have a Titanium status with Marriott, and was initially told that nothing was available Then, on the way to the elevator, we were pleasantly greeted by Michelle who was on temporary assignment with this hotel We explained our situation and Michelle worked with the front desk staff for a few minutes and returned with a suite upgrade for me!This was a perfect solution and really relieved the anxiety on our friends’ daughter We all dropped our luggage off in our rooms and returned to the lobby for dinner and drinks Everyone enjoyed their meals and slept well that evening The rooms were not luxurious, but were very clean and quietWe left our vehicle with Marriott and took their early morning shuttle to JFK The ride was very short and the driver, as the rest of the staff, was very pleasant and professional We enjoyed chatting with him about the Virgin IslandsWe were all very happy with our experiences at this Courtyard Marriott and especially thankful to have met Michelle Kudos to all! We will be back for future flights – for sure These folks show you hospitality the way you should expect it and the way we mostly find it at Marriott properties

Justin Ingraham

The hotel is dated and dirty The service and staff were amazing As I mentioned to the front desk member at checkout, this is one of the first hotel chains I have been to where 95% of staff was friendly and greeting you from housekeeping to cooks and between

Their free breakfast may not look like much but their sandwiches are very large and filling The location is in a residential area which makes parking difficult

joe Meiman

While the staff was competent, friendly and helpful the overall condition of the property is not what one expects under the Courtyard name I sought refuge in this hotel purgatory due to a cancellation of a flight at nearby JFK There are no nearby dining options so you are generally confined to the limited in house menu

It is not the best place I’ve stayed and certainly not the worse

This was a beautiful hotel! Google maps said it would take longer to get to the train station, but it’s literally across the street This made going into New York City very easy The rooms were HUGE and very clean! The hand towels had the garden city logo on them and the robes were unbelievably comfortable

The beds were great to sleep in My wife made friends with a few of the housekeeping ladies After a full day of traveling to get here, then waking up early to go to the city, we were in dire need of water The housekeepers were super nice and gave us quite a few bottles!! It went a long way in terms of serviceMy cousin had his rehearsal dinner at this hotel I have to say all the food was delicious My wife is a Mac and cheese connoisseur, and she said the Mac and cheese at their pasta bar was in her top 3 EVER The desserts that were served were just as good I’m not sure if I’ll ever have a reason to do an event at this hotel, but it is one that I will remember foreverMany of the women on my cousin’s side of the family decided to get their hair and makeup done together at the salon in the hotel They all had a ton of fun and looked beautiful! My mom and wife could not stop raving about how good everyone did Everyone working here was very professional and clearly very good in their field

Jeff Clark

The staff is wonderful, capped off by Anthony (Tony) at the front desk The common areas are wonderfully clean, with staff walking the space throughout the day We were in the pool and witnessed a staff member walk the gym and pool area, then minutes later another staff member came down to mop some shoe prints on the pool deck

Great team work was evident throughout our stay, and housekeeping was attentive, remembered that we had children with us, and quietly knocked as to not disturb them well deserving of our tip! Don’t forget to tip, the team deserves it

Plushee One

I liked it but

Beautiful historic hotel that could use a freshening Lobby, spa, restaurants are lovely, the staff is welcoming (especially Gary at the front desk and our bellhop Luis) but the rooms are faded (and we stayed in the penthouse) Small updates would make all the difference, like table lamps with outlets in them and lighter color schemes This place ain’t cheap and they can do better

I needed to find a hotel to spend the night when local storms resulted in numerous flight cancellations at LaGuardia I needed up here at the Courtyard in Queens I was initially concerned about the location but as it turned out this is a really nice location

The facility is clean and comfortable The pricing was reasonable too I felt very welcomed and appreciated as a Marriott customerThe Bistro and lounge were Wm very nice as well as the room an rear courtyard

Marc Senatore

Rooms are very nicely designed with modern looks and nice bathroom, but the room ALWAYS was humid and smelled like a locker room The bedsheets and rug always felt slightly damp Any paper or receipts in the room would become wet also

Valet and front desk staff were great Just wish they could figure out this humid/muggy problem in the rooms Experienced this three times on three separate occasions

Ethan O’Neall

Good place Clean sheets and rooms The breakfast was not open, but still a good, quiet place to sit and work and enjoy in the morning

The building does not feel old or dated but fresh and cleanDid not need to ask the staff for anything, but I assume they were great
