The Plan

At the center of the TWA Hotel is Eero Saarinen’s iconic TWA Flight Center, where restaurants, bars and retail will take flight. Two hotel wings, designed to reflect and defer to the landmark Flight Center, sit behind the historic building and contain 505 hotel rooms with views of JFK’s runways.

  1. Historic Tubes to JetBlue Terminal 5
  2. 505 room hotel
  3. 50,000-square-foot event and conference center
  4. 200,000-square-foot lobby with retail, restaurants, and bars
  5. 10,000-square-foot fitness facility
  6. Air train to JFK terminals
  7. 3,700 parking spaces

The TWA Hotel is...

  • Union-built and union-operated
  • The only on-airport/central-terminal/AirTrain-accessible hotel at JFK
  • LEED certified
  • Connected physically to Terminal 5 via Saarinen’s iconic arrival tubes
