The Hotel

TWA Hotel – Landing Soon

MCR and MORSE Development are reigniting the magic of Eero Saarinen’s landmarked 1962 TWA Flight Center at JFK Airport, restoring and reimagining it as a first-class hotel.

 

  • 512 ultra-quiet hotel rooms with exhilarating views of JFK’s runways and the iconic TWA Flight Center
  • 50,000 square feet of meeting space that can hold 1,400 people
  • 6 restaurants and 8 bars
  • 10,000-square-foot rooftop observation deck with pool
  • State of the art 10,000-square-foot fitness facility with yoga, spinning and other amenities
  • Museum devoted to the Jet Age, TWA and the midcentury modern design movement
  • Classic Solari split-flap message board with authentic original mechanical operation manufactured in Udine, Italy

The Plan

At the center of the TWA Hotel is Eero Saarinen’s iconic TWA Flight Center, where restaurants, bars and retail outlets will take flight. Two hotel wings, designed to reflect and defer to the landmarked TWA Flight Center, sit behind the historic building and contain 512 guest rooms with views of JFK’s runways and the TWA Flight Center.

  1. Flight tubes to JetBlue Terminal 5 made famous by the 2002 film Catch Me If You Can
  2. 512 room hotel
  3. 50,000-square-foot event and conference center that can hold 1,400 people
  4. 200,000-square-foot heart of the hotel with retail outlets, restaurants and bars
  5. 10,000-square-foot fitness facility
  6. AirTrain to JFK terminals
  7. 3,700 parking spaces

The TWA Hotel is. . .

  • Union-built and union-operated
  • The only on-airport, AirTrain-accessible hotel at JFK
  • LEED certified
  • Connected to JFK's Terminal 5 via Saarinen’s iconic flight tubes
