Hyatt Regency JFK Airport at Resorts World New York
Hyatt Regency JFK Airport at Resorts World New York celebrated its ribbon cutting today in Queens. The hotel is not actually at JFK, but it does have several options for traveling to and from the airport. This is a Category 3 property that is located by New York City’s only casino in Jamaica, Queens.
Hyatt Regency JFK Airport at Resorts World New York is an eight-story, luxury hotel, featuring 400 residential-inspired guestrooms and premium suites. The hotel also features the world-renowned Sugar Factory Restaurant, a fitness center, state-of-the-art conference and meeting spaces, and additional gaming areas. The centerpiece of the property is a soaring grand lobby, perfectly suited for art exhibits, events and musical performances, that connects the hotel with Resorts World New York City (RWNYC), which opened in 2011.
The hotel features 400 guest rooms including 275 king rooms, 91 double rooms and 34 suites. The variety of accommodations is ideal for business and leisure travelers alike thanks to an incredibly convenient location near JFK Airport. The oversized suites are designed to make guests feel at home with kitchenettes and separate living spaces. Many of the chic guestrooms offer floor-to-ceiling windows looking out to the city’s skyline.
The property offers 6,500 slots and electronic table games. Resorts World New York City features three unique levels of gaming, Times Square Casino, Fifth Avenue Casino and Central Park Casino, along with several high-limit rooms.
The $400 million hotel and amenities investment has long been part of Genting’s vision of bringing a destination resort, popular in global locations such as Las Vegas and Singapore, to New York City. The resort seamlessly features a variety of non-gaming amenities to complement the most innovative gaming products and entertainment offerings, allowing guests of all interests and budgets an experience that fits their personal tastes.
This development brings the total investment in Resorts World New York City to over $1.1 billion after Genting spent more than $700 million to enhance the existing Aqueduct grandstand to become a leading entertainment destination. The hotel addition has created hundreds of good-paying careers for New Yorkers and will provide additional revenue for New York State’s Lottery Education Fund. Resorts World New York City has already generated more than $3 billion for New York’s public schools.
Meetings and Events
Beyond redefining the hotel experience for leisure guests, the new hotel applies a high-touch experience for meetings and events, with 5,000 square feet of total function space and state-of-the-art meeting facilities all backed by a dedicated team offering meeting planners a seamless, confident service, for themselves and attendees. The rooms are designed to host a range of events including corporate meetings, art exhibits and community programs. Including Resorts World New York City, the property will now have more than 64,000 square feet of event space.
Sugar Factory, the world-renowned café and confectionary shop, is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Its signature menu items include decadent milkshakes and old-fashioned sundaes. Guests can also enjoy additional food and beverage options including a convenient Grab n’ Go. Regency Club guests can enjoy daily continental breakfast and evening hors d’oeuvres and light snacks at this exclusive club.
