Greeted by friendly ground staff who helped me to …
Drag poor old Jack from his bed again and go to a nearby diner for breakfast. It's just like you see in films. It has booths with individual juke boxes. Jack has chocolate chip pancakes with maple syrup, and cauffee!! Very American!! Then as we are now such experts at subway travel its back underground to get to the Rockefeller Centre. We …
The last day of our trip :( We get up early to make the most of the day, even though we didn't get to sleep until 4am! We take the subway to Times Square to take the uptown loop of the bus tour. This takes us along the West side of Central Park we go past the Lincoln Centre, The Cathedral of St John the Divine (which is amazing,) and The Apollo …
Drag Jack from his bed kicking and screaming!! We decide that we must be brave and take the subway at least once whilst we are here so we nervously descend underground. We manage to work out how to use the ticket machine and to get through the revolving gate and even get the right platform and train!! (Ok so the concierge at the hotel talked us …
We get up early, the storm is blowing in and it is very very windy. We pack up the car and head for the office where we picked it up. The idiot rental man had told us that the hotel where the office is would let us on their bus to the airport. He said the bus is on demand but it turns out that they are once an hour. As I am talking to the …

Historical Traveler Reviews Pan American Hotel Elmhurst
My wife and I stayed at the Pan American during the U.S. Open Tennis tournament. I booked the room on the hotel's web site and got an internet special rate. Rate upon check-in was much higher than the rate I was quoted and guaranteed on-line. Luckily, I had printed and brought my internet reservation along. A manager did finally agree to honor the on-line price after I produced the documentation.
First things first. The room at the Pan American wasn't the latest, all-singing, all-dancing room of an expensive chain.
After searching desperately for a week to find a safe, clean, affordable hotel in New York City, my sister and I were pleased to come across the Pan American in Queens. Considering most of the hotels were going for at least $180 USD over Memorial Day Weekend, we considered $180 CDN per night a deal. The staff was friendly and helpful when I called to confirm a late arrival.
A great value and helpful staff
This was our first trip to New York and it won;t be our last. The staff at the Pan American was very helpful. From check in to check out, I could no have asked for more. Not fancy, not flashy, just a basic hotel with some of the friendlist and most helpful people I have met. Close to the subway, clean and quiet. We will be back!!!
Not bad at all
After a really bad experience with a hotel in Rome, we were glad to get home. Well, not quite home, but we love NY, so it felt like it. The shuttle was relatively quick, friendly and free (give yourself some extra time just in case - it's a shuttle service not a taxi & they may go to another airport before going to yours). The room was clean (mattresses were quite hard, but that's not unusual in a budget hotel).
The bathroom was a little odd, but not a major issue. The TV was old, but who really cares - who goes to NY to watch TV? For the price, a great value & experience.
I visited the hotel in January for the 5th time. I always find the staff very helpful and friendly. The service to and from the airport is generally good and is not provided by most hotels so is a definate plus. The hotel itself provides good, clean spacious accommodation at a good price and the bus into the city leaves practically outside the door and the journey only takes 20mins. There are two good shopping malls within 10mins walk of the hotel and a few good places to eat too.
The hotel is clean, very dated, old televisions etc., all of which we could put up with, our big problem was lack of tea/coffee in bedrooms.
we used this hotel on our first visit to N.Y. and were very impressed---the courtesy coach saved us a lot of money as there were five of us--their day tour of the city was excellent value and the driver was great---have used it since and intend to return
Good prices and nice room. The staff is very friendly and helpful. FREE PARKING!!! After staying in some NYC roach motels, I was lucky to find this place and it was even cheaper than the dumps. I try not to stay anywhere else now.
This hotel tries to use its free aiport shuttle as a selling point -- don't believe it. The driver took two return trips to find us at JFK, then drove by the hotel to pick up more people at LaGuardia. We checked in 3 hours after we landed! In the morning, despite indicating their choice of shuttle, some people could not get on. The hotel gives no compensation or even acknowledges this as a problem. They claim that because it is a courtesy shuttle, there are no service or availability guarantees. There was nothing courteous about this hotel!
