I have a 9-hour layover at New York JFK. From 10am until 7pm (although I have to checkin at 3pm for personal reasons).

This being in the middle of a 2-day travel, I would love to take a break to shower and rest a bit. How can I do that for cheap?

I have 3 luggage and 2 carry-ons, if it matters...

Good point, typo :) However I have to check in 4 hours ahead as this is a group flight. –  nute Oct 9 '12 at 22:41

I discovered that option by reading this website: airport lounges sometimes offer good and reasonably priced solutions to rest.

Two questions could have relevant answers: one about what the different lounges offer and one about how to get there for cheap

EDIT: with the PriorityPass, as you mention you have it, the KAL lounge requires you to have a boarding pass to enter. The United Club has conditions on how you got your card (if it's from your bank you can't) and the Oasis lounge allows you to stay no more than 3 hours. In the end these conditions are annoying but I think you can make it.

I have PriorityPass so the lougne solution looked good. However I am worry they won't let me in until I have checked-in... –  nute Oct 9 '12 at 22:42
are you sure, I think the point of lounges is for layovers. Well at least that's how I imagine it, maybe indeed the point is to make money and let people pay for services they can't use. –  Vince Oct 10 '12 at 6:19
