Whether you’re flying into LaGuardia Airport to visit New York or the New England region, there’s one thing you’ll likely need at some point during your travels — an airport hotel. More or less just a place to snooze before catching your flight or driving to your destination after a long journey, airport hotels can range in quality, price and purpose. To make your booking decision easier, we’ve put together a list of six hotels near LaGuardia Airport that we recommend.
1. If you’re a corporate traveler…
Corporate travelers flying into (or out of) LaGuardia often want to rest up before or after their flight, so they can hit the ground running while on a business trip. There are two primary hotels you may want to look at if you’re covering your travel with the company card; one is more of a budget-friendly option while the other offers more comfort.
For the latter, there’s the Hyatt Place Flushing/LaGuardia Airport. The Hyatt Place brand puts convenience first for its guests, without sacrificing quality. Each spacious guest room comes with a large seating area and a workspace, as well as free Wifi. The restaurant offers a 24/7 marketplace for quick bites on the go, as well as a coffee-to-cocktails bar.
Then, there’s the Comfort Inn & Suites LaGuardia Airport. While it might not offer as many of the amenities as that of the Hyatt Place, your stay does come with complimentary hot breakfast, parking and WiFi, as well as courtesy transportation to the nearby airport. For corporate travelers on a budget, this is the way to go.
2. If you’re an executive…
For executives that want a polished property with luxury touches and a brand name you can always trust, New York LaGuardia Airport Marriott is a good pick. The great location, updated guest rooms and suites and two restaurants all add up to an enjoyable airport hotel stay.
For executives that desire a trendy brand (and maybe even a pet-friendly one at that), the Aloft New York LaGuardia Airport gives you a youthful feel with its bright social spaces and fun cocktail bar. The hotel helps you get your trip off on the right foot, with a distinguishable exuberance that you likely won’t find at some of the other cookie-cutter airport hotel brands.
3. If you’re a family…
Traveling with a family presents a whole host of new challenges and needs, especially when it comes to looking for an airport hotel. You want somewhere that’s conveniently close, in a safe area and part of a family-friendly brand.
We recommend two hotels for families flying in and out of LaGuardia: SpringHill Suites New York LaGuardia Airport and the ibis Styles New York LaGuardia Airport. The former is great for larger families or those with small children, as it offers plenty of room for your play pen or an extra cot in your guest room, and many rooms come with a sofa bed. In addition to the free breakfast, you also have access to your own kitchen or kitchenette in your room, so you can whip up something for the kids any time of day or night. For those with older children, the ibis Styles brand could be just the right thing for them to think mom and dad are “cool” again. The fun hotel with plenty of Instagrammable spots throughout the social spaces and guest rooms is family-friendly with an edge.
Regardless of where you stay during your trip, a private car service — from large vehicles with room for the family and all your luggage, to luxury vehicles for execs who want to arrive in style — can make the trip even easier, driving you from home to your airport hotel , or from your airport hotel to your final destination. Teddy’s can accommodate travelers of all types, from corporate travelers to execs to families, and customize your experience to fit your precise needs the next time you’re flying through LaGuardia Airport.
