From JFK, the journey in a yellow cab will take around 45 minutes in good traffic. Newark is roughly the same distance, and LaGuardia is slightly closer. You can also take the AirTrain from JFK to Jamaica Station to catch the subway into Manhattan. The nearest subway is right across the street (5th Avenue - 59th Street).
One of the few hotels to obtain a coveted spot on Central Park, the Park Lane Hotel has a location and views typically reserved for the titans of industry. The sleek concrete tower stretches 46 stories over the park's southern border, and the rooms have nearly wall-to-wall windows. Rooms are roughly 30% larger than the average Manhattan hotel room.
Originally a Helmsley hotel, the building is trimmed with all the upmarket touches that defined that opulent hotel empire. The lobby is flooded with marble surfaces and brass candelabras, crystal chandeliers light the hallways, and rich velvets cover the seats. Up on the second floor, the Park Room restaurant serves breakfast and lunch in a room framed by double-height windows that look out at the park. Classic cocktails are poured at Harry's New York Bar.
Fifth Avenue is practically next door, which in this part of town stocks some of the city's fanciest stores, such as the ritzy department store Bergdorf Goodman, and accessories wonderland Henri Bendel, which fills three landmarked townhouses with Lalique windows. A few doors down, a lively food hall fills the Plaza Hotel's basement, with everything from Italian to Japanese cuisine overseen by celebrity chef Todd English.
