Every kid wonders what it would be like to live inside a bustling airport — even for just one night. The TWA Hotel gives you that experience with retro décor so you can fantasize about living a glamorous life as a flight attendant in the 1960s.
The TWA Hotel is located within New York’s John F. Kennedy International airport as a reimagined, first-class hotel; it debuted in 2017. Architect Eero Saarinen is noted for the design of the iconic TWA Flight Center, an operating terminal 1962–2002. In 1994, the building was declared a New York City Landmark and officially registered as a National Historic Place in 2005.
With 512 rooms, the TWA Hotel can house an abundance of travelers, offering amazing views of arriving and departing flights on the runway. Guests can enjoy a glimpse of history with a museum curated by the New York Historical Society. The museum highlights the elegance of the era with in-flight amenities, like silver serving ware, playing cards, flight menus, gravy boats, chopsticks and children’s activities. Visitors are encouraged to try on the vintage fashion and lounge in a recreation of a 1962 living room. Uniforms from times past are on display, along with an original Barbie Dream House and retro furniture.
A rooftop, infinity, heated pool-cuzzi and observation deck overlook JFK Runway 4Left/22 Right. From 7 a.m.–10 p.m. weekdays and 7 a.m.–11 p.m. weekends. The pool bar is open with beverage and food services to enjoy during the pool’s operating hours. For an extra $25 a day, guests can use the TWA fitness center, equipped with treadmills, ellipticals, a yoga studio, Peloton bikes and classes.
A 1958 Lockheed Constellation “Connie” airplane has a red carpet rolled out for guests to climb aboard and experience a unique cocktail lounge on the tarmac. Other dining offerings include Paris Café by Jean Georges, The Sunken Lounge, a food hall and Intelligentsia Coffee.
