Vintage-inspired TWA Hotel opens at JFK airport

The TWA Hotel in New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) airport is the stuff of vintage dreams. It’s all about Jet Age glamour, being housed inside Eero Saarinen’s iconic 1962 Trans World Air Terminal.

Opened in May 2019, TWA Hotel is JFK airport’s only on-airport hotel. It features 512 rooms, numerous drinking and dining spots, plus it has an infinity pool and observation deck. Each of the spaces incorporates the 1960’s vintage aesthetic, including the Reading Room where guests can lounge on mid-century Herman Miller furniture and peruse Phaidon books.

“Eero Saarinen’s cathedral to aviation has always looked toward the future,” says Tyler Morse, CEO and Managing Partner of MCR and MORSE Development. “We restored and reimagined his landmark with the same care that he devoted to his design. No detail went overlooked – from the millwork by Amish artisans to the custom font inspired by Saarinen’s own sketched to the one-of-a-kind manhole covers. Starting today, the world can enjoy this midcentury marvel for many years to come.”
