You shouldn't have much trouble getting to Trump International Hotel & Tower New York from the airport; all three major New York airports are just a taxi ride or shuttle away. LaGuardia Airport is the smallest of New York City's three air terminals, and the cab ride from the northern part of Queens to the Trump in Midtown will run you about $30. Flights servicing LaGuardia come from domestic cities and international departures from Canada, Aruba, the Bahamas and Bermuda, thanks to those destinations being staffed with U.S. border preclearance facilities. You can also take public transportation to the New York hotel from LaGuardia: The M60 bus only costs $2.25 for a one-way trip through Harlem to the Upper West Side of Manhattan, where you can transfer to a subway into Midtown. If you're flying into John F. Kennedy International Airport, welcome to the busiest international air passenger gateway in North America. The airport is southeast of Lower Manhattan in the borough of Queens in New York City; the 12-mile cab ride from JFK to the luxury hotel costs about $50. You can also try taking the AirTrain for $5 into the city, then transfer to the E subway line, then the B line, getting off at the 59 St. Columbus Circle stop. Newark Liberty International Airport serves as a hub for United/Continental Airlines and is fifth-busiest international airport in the nation. A cab from Newark to the Forbes Travel Guide Five-Star hotel will run you about $80. You can also take a New Jersey Transit train to Penn station for $15, where you can then take the E subway line to the B or D line, getting off at 59 St. Columbus Circle. If you want to save some cash, but don't want to deal with the subway, consider the shuttle services from any of the airports. SuperShuttle and New York Airport Service are both popular options, and they cost between $12 and $25.
