TWA Hotel

Hotel - New York

In 1962, the terminal of the American airline TWA was opened at New York’s JFK airport.   The Jet-era  was in full speed, flying still had glamour. The fact that Finnish architect Eero Saarinen, whose designs are still seen as contemporary decades later, was commissioned with the project was only logical. After the bankruptcy of the airline in 2001, the terminal was closed.

In May 2019, the terminal re-opened with new sparkle. Since then, the TWA Hotel moved into the striking building; 512 rooms in the finest retro setting.  Eero Saarinen’s furniture remind of the original builder. Now you can find grab-and-go dining in the former terminal. The roof features an infinity pool with a view onto taxiways. The atmosphere is legendary!

Special Tips

Today, the tube passages, known from Leonardo DiCaprio’s “Catch Me If You Can”, lead to the hallways of the rooms.
