TWA Hotel

New York, NY

Come fly with us! JFK’s only on-airport hotel, the TWA Hotel is just steps from Terminal 5 and a short AirTrain ride to all other terminals. At the heart of the hotel is the former TWA terminal designed by world-renowned architect Eero Saarinen and opened in 1962. The terminal — built for Trans World Airlines (TWA) by Howard Hughes to represent the excitement of travel — went dark in 2001. After more than two years of careful restoration, Saarinen’s masterpiece has taken flight once again with restaurants and retail. Brand new buildings behind the terminal house the hotel’s 512 midcentury modern-inspired guestrooms. Up, up & away!

Soaring Views and Sixties Spirit

Watch planes take flight — without hearing them. Each of the TWA Hotel’s 1962-inspired guestrooms boasts floor-to-ceiling windows — the second-thickest in the world — with views of the former TWA terminal or nearby runways. Tap into free lightning fast Wi-Fi or go retro and make complimentary unlimited local and international calls from the vintage Western Electric 500 rotary phone in your room. Mix up a martini at a custom-built, fully-stocked walnut and brushed brass cocktail bar and kick back on authentic Eero Saarinen-designed midcentury modern Knoll furnishings. Or just dim the cabin lights, jet off to sleep on a deluxe mattress and awake refreshed and ready for your next adventure.

Jet Age Magic

Sip a cocktail at The Sunken Lounge, dine at the Paris Café by Jean-Georges, or grab an Intelligentsia coffee and plane spot at the rooftop infinity pool and observation deck (it overlooks JFK’s bustling Runway 4 Left/22 Right, with views all the way to Jamaica Bay!). Need to work out some travel kinks? The hotel’s sprawling 10,000-square-foot fitness center — the world’s largest hotel gym — features a Peloton bike room, state-of-the-art equipment and personal trainers. Aviation fans will also enjoy viewing historical exhibits of retro TWA uniforms and dazzling David Klein travel artwork — or stepping aboard Connie, the Lockheed Constellation airplane that’s been transformed into a cocktail lounge. Looking to host a high-flying wedding, meeting or banquet? The 50,000-square-foot event and conference center can accommodate up to 1,400 people.
