YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE THIS! THE TWA HOTEL AT JFK AIRPORT OPENS GUESTROOM RESERVATIONS ON VALENTINE’S DAY
Starting May 15, 2019, you can go from bed to boarding a plane in record time.
The TWA Hotel’s 512 guestrooms have cocktail bars and Hollywood-style vanities.
NEW YORK, NY / FEBRUARY 8, 2019 Mark your calendar with a heart: At noon EST on Thursday, February 14, you can book a stay at the TWA Hotel at New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport by visiting twahotel.com — the only place to reserve guestrooms.
The hotel’s 512 midcentury modern-inspired guestrooms — housed in brand new buildings behind the 1962 Eero Saarinen-designed landmark that will be the heart of the hotel — are available beginning May 15, 2019, the TWA Hotel’s soft opening. A grand opening celebration will be thrown in the fall. Room rates start at $249.
The Paris Café by Jean-Georges will serve meals inside the Saarinen-designed landmark.
This spring, the TWA Hotel will also offer reservations for shorter day stays, providing JFK travelers on layovers a place to shower, catch up on email with free fast Wi-Fi, have a great meal at The Paris Café by Jean-Georges and hit the 10,000-square-foot-gym or rooftop pool before heading into Manhattan for meetings. Need to make long-distance calls? They’re free on our rewired vintage rotary phones. Bonus: Detouring to the hotel after an early morning JFK arrival allows you to skip the rush hour traffic on the Belt Parkway and the Van Wyck Expressway.
Guestrooms at the TWA Hotel have the second-thickest glass in the world.
“Restoring the TWA Hotel is a labor of love for our entire team,” says Tyler Morse, CEO of MCR and MORSE Development. “We are counting down the days until the landmark building, dark since 2001, is filled with life again.”
The TWA Hotel, JFK Airport’s only on-airport hotel, will feature:
Six restaurants and eight bars, including The Paris Café by Jean-Georges
An Intelligentsia coffeebar and coffee carts throughout the hotel grounds
High-end retail outlets
50,000 square feet of event space, including a 15,000-square-foot ballroom
