Transportation from LaGuardia to Crown Plaza? (by Jan,
MS, USA)

What choices do I have to get 7 adults and 14 pieces of luggage from LaGuardia Airport to the Crown Plaza Times Square?

NYC Insider Guide Answer:

Hi Jan! Thanks for your question. My recommendation is two taxis from LGA to the Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan.

The taxis will be about $40 each (more airport info here), for door to door service. You might save a little money by taking a shuttle, but it will take longer and likely be a hassle.

Please let me know if I can answer any additional questions, have a wonderful trip and we’d love if you would let us all know what you think of the Crowne Plaza.
