8 things to know about the new TWA Hotel at JFK Airport from retro themes to day passes

The TWA Hotel at John F. Kennedy International Airport opened Wednesday and invited guests to experience the glory days of mid-century travel.

Reimagined from when the building was the Trans World Flight Center constructed in 1962, the TWA Hotel creates an airline-themed stay and play experience.

“I used to be a former flight attendant on TWA in ’96,” says TWA Hotel front desk assistant Karen Espinal. “Working here brings back memories of the airline that opened the door for me to a career in aviation.”

The 512-room hotel with a rooftop infinity pool that overlooks a JFK runway has been one of the most-anticipated hotel openings of 2019.

From sipping cocktails at the Paris Cafe and Lisbon Lounge by Jean-Georgesto viewing a fashion exhibit showcasing flight-attendant uniforms from different decades to making calls on working vintage rotary phones next to your hotel room bathroom, the TWA Hotel creates an adult playground for design and aviation lovers from every corner.
