    I hope the hotel is not really in New York, or it's a long distance from that airport!

    Don't tell IAHFLYR they moved his airport to NY. He won't be too happy. Sounds like another Texas "oops" moment.

      WARNING......Houston North Marriott......not so much.  Nice hotel, location to be desired.

       

      There is a FFI and SHS just off the airport on JFK which are nice and I hear the Marriott on the airport has been refurbished so you can get to the terminals without needed a vehicle.  However; I'm pretty sure the refurbishment did not include a move to NY.

        JFK airport is awful for hotels. None on the airport. They all require a shuttle or cab. The airtrain is okay if you live in the area and take it to the airport, but not when staying at a hotel and taking it to the terminals.

          SeaTexan, my reference to not needing a shuttle to the airport was in regards to the IAH Airport Marriott which is between Terminal B and C at the airport.  The North Houston Marriott is located in the Greenspoint area which is probably five miles to the airport and yes you will require some type of transportation.

        Houston North Marriott is in Greenspoint, locally known as Gunspoint but I'm guessing it's not named as such because it's linked to local manufacturing , but instead the rather less prosaic reason of excessive usage. I'm staying there after TIPPLE as the final part of my research trip visiting the local AG Enforcement office that's practically next door. I'll explore the area carefully!

          When being mugged, just give them what they want and you won't get shot. honestly, I think the chance is REALLY low anyway.  Have no fear!

          Oh my gosh brightlybob!  I just got back from there today.  The hotel is pretty decent.  I forgot my toothbrush and requested on with the at your service app.  They delivered before I got there

          My mom and I (of course) had drinks and dinner there.  Service was at first TERRIBLE! but they got it together in the end.  We had a good time.  I did not help that United was having "airline school" for 6 weeks, and there were a ton of people flooding the bar.

          But you are REALLY in the middle of nothing... no other place to go hang out or eat.  I left around 7:30am and noticed a security guard outside the hotel.  Ok, that's good! Then! I stopped to get gas right down the road and saw this!

          IMG_5259.JPG

          Um... Well I have never seen such a sign at any gas station. It was scary and funny all at the same time.  Funny b/c of this forum and that we (IAHFLYR) had just talked about it. This was not a small sign either. I usually stay outside of my vehicle when pumping gas but not this time!

    My reservation is for the new SpringHill Suites in Williamsville (Buffalo).  Houston would be warmer, but alas, it's off to frigid western NY for me.

    Have they decided to add desks back into the rooms whilst moving the IAH Marriott to NYC? Even if they haven't moved IAH airport to NYC, at least the addition of in-room desks would make this business airport hotel more business friendly...

     

    Probably the same idiot decided to remove desks from Marriott hotels as the one that decided the IAH Marriott really belonged in NYC!!!

      brightlybob They moved the IAH Marriott to Buffalo, NY and not NYC.

        It may be irrelevant since the IAH Marriott has a complimentary airport shuttle.

          That would make for one long shuttle ride!

          You don't require a shuttle unless you really want one as the Marriott on IAH is connected by an ancient underground tram to all the Terminal buildings or is you are into a bit of exercise walk it along the walkway that runs right alongside the tram.
