Not being familiar with NY, we booked an overnight at the Marco altho we flew into JFK. We discovered the error - the Marco is ideally located for LaGuardia travelers, but a 30 minute cab ride from JFK - but got a cab and paid $30 to get to the hotel, which is located in the Chinese district in Flushing. The staff, the room and the restaurant did not disappoint. We were particularly impressed with the quality of the food in the Magna Restaurant, a very pleasant surprise.
On our return to JFK a week later we stayed at a nearby Comfornt Inn. The price was about $20 cheaper, and we didn't have to pay +/- $60 for to/from cab rides, but we certainly missed the Marco experience.
