Oyster Hotel Review
On the easternmost edge of the Upper East Side, the Bentley is a long way from the famous museums and designer shopping -- it's above a gas station and surrounded by affordable housing and bridge traffic.
Although sights like Central Park and 5th Avenue are within walking distance, the hotel sits in an unpopular area overlooking the Queensboro Bridge and the eastside highway, FDR Drive -- it's in a different world, cut off from Barneys and Vera Wang.
- Seven blocks from the N, Q, R subway lines; eight blocks from the 4, 5, 6 subway lines; nine blocks from the F subway line
- 15-minute walk to Central Park
- 25-minute subway ride to Times Square
- 30-minute subway ride to the Empire State Building
- 35-minute subway ride or $17 taxi to the ferry terminal to visit the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island
- 25-minute walk or subway ride to Rockefeller Center
- 35-minute subway ride to the American Museum of Natural History (one transfer)
- 30-minute subway ride to the Metropolitan Museum of Art (the "Met") and 20-minute walk to the Museum of Modern Art (the "MoMA")

About 30 to 90 minutes from three airports
New York has three nearby airports: JFK, LaGuardia, and Newark (in New Jersey). Getting to town from JFK or LaGuardia is usually more convenient than getting there from Newark, but travel times are heavily dependent on the time of day and traffic conditions. From JFK, a taxi to anywhere in Manhattan costs a flat rate of $45 and takes around an hour in average conditions. From LaGuardia, a metered cab ride to midtown Manhattan costs about $40 and can take 30 minutes if traffic is light, three times that if it's bad. Rides from Newark cost at least $40 (plus tolls) and can take more than 90 minutes. It's customary to tip your driver 15 to 25 percent.
Those looking to save some cash can use the privately run shuttle buses that are available at all three airports for about $14 per person. For more information on the shuttles, go to Super Shuttle or New York Airport Service. Public transit is also available for as little as $7 per person, but travel can take up to two hours and involve a lot of lugging bags up and down stairways.
