What is the best way to get here using public transportation, from JFK airport?
Reaching this hotel by public transportation is possible, but comes with difficulty and will involve perhaps a 3-4 hour oneway trip. From JFK, you will take the air train to reach the NYC subway (which I believe will be Jamaica Station). From Jamaica Station, you will take the NYC subway into Grand Central Station in Manhattan. From Grand Central, switchover to the Metro North system and take the line straight up to White Plains Station (depending on the hour of your arrival, you can catch an express train with approx 35 travel time). Once you arrive into White Plains Station, get off the train and into one of the local Bee Line buses that will take you into Elmsford. The line stops immediately outside the Hampton Inn and you'll walk up the hill into the hotel.
I rented a car.
i came to Elmsford for business every year by rental car with GPS (around 40 minutes)
i don't know how to get there by public transportation, but i guess you can ask in air port how to get there,
i know there is a train station 3 miles from the hotel (train) at white plains
good luck! and enjoy
