Location at the Subway

New York City is known for its massive underground Subway System. Rides to anywhere you want to go cost less then $2 a person. You can purchase daily passes or multi-ride passes and pay even less. The subway operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and on holidays.

The benefits for staying at our location, which provides free transport to and from the airport, is that we are two blocks from the subway, so you never have to pay for an expensive taxi. If you do drive a car on your holiday and want to visit New York City, we also are the perfect solution.
