Not as bad as previous reviews! A review of Doubletree Hotel JFK Airport
Well, after reading the prior reviews, I was extremely reluctant to book this hotel, but I just needed a room for the night near JFK. Boy was I pleasantly surprised! I'm not sure if they read the reviews, but the hotel was nothing like I thought it was going to be! The front desk was very helpful, even down to suggesting a restaurant in the area. The room was great! The sheets were nice and clean, bed was comfortable and the room looked really nice. The bathroom walls and bathtub looked like it should have been updated and there were a few more cosmetic problems in the bathroom, but it was otherwise fine. There was a slight problem. My friend called before 11pm to room service and just asked for some flatware and they said they would bring it right up. 15-20 minutes later, there was still no room service. So she called back down and they said that room service was closed (why didn't they just say that it was closing the first time?). The front desk said to come downstairs to get the flatware, which she did and had no other problems. That situation was a little annoying, but it was not a dealbreaker. I thought it was a great room for the price and for the location! I would stay here again based on my experience!
