About ibis Styles New York LaGuardia Airport
Like each of the 339 mid-size ibis Styles hotels distributed across 30 countries worldwide, the U.S. flagship property is stylish and distinctly imaginative.
Located just across Grand Central Parkway from LaGuardia Airport, the singular design of the 93-room hotel is inspired by the New York City Subway. Design details create a lively universe, from whimsical in-wall lobby seating to throw pillows and artwork that take cues from the colourful emblems, stations and route maps found throughout the underground cultural hub.
Guest rooms will be inspired by different subway lines – green, yellow, red, blue – with furniture suited to today’s lifestyles, including 26-inch HD LED televisions, desk areas, walls decorated with subway maps, and the majestic Sweet Bed by ibis Styles, an innovative bedding concept for the brand that offers guests unparalleled comfort with a fluffy topper, as well as a white duvet and large, light and airy microfibre pillows.
The hotel similarly serves up a true taste of New York, with authentic street-inspired snacks served at the Metrocard Lounge, while making it easy for guests to take a bite out of the Big Apple, with NYC Subway card packages.
