How do I get to the TWA Hotel?
If you’re driving:
The TWA Hotel is located at JFK Airport near Terminal 5. Upon entering the airport, proceed toward Terminal 5 (JetBlue). Follow the traffic signs to the TWA Hotel, keeping left toward Terminal 5's parking area.
For the TWA Hotel's parking, transfer to the left center lane, which will lead you directly to the hotel's main entrance.
If you’re taking the AirTrain:
The AirTrain is the fastest and easiest way to get to the TWA Hotel. It is a 5-minute ride from all terminals to the TWA Hotel at the Terminal 5 stop. JFK Airport does not allow hotel or rental car shuttles in the central terminal area to alleviate traffic on central terminal roadways.
To reach the TWA Hotel, exit the AirTrain at the Terminal 5 (JetBlue) stop and follow the signs to the elevator on the same level as the train platform. Take the elevator down to Level 1. Walk left off the elevator, go through the doors, turn left and cross the street toward the Yellow Parking Garage. Turn left on the sidewalk and follow the covered walkway to the TWA Hotel front door.
The AirTrain, which runs 24/7, connects all terminals to airport parking lots, the rental car center and NYC’s public transportation at the Jamaica and Howard Beach Stations, where you can find the subway, the Long Island Rail Road and public buses. The AirTrain is free within JFK and between the TWA Hotel and all terminals. If you end or start your trip at the Jamaica or Howard Beach Stations, a fee is payable by a MetroCard available at those stations. The AirTrain runs as often as every 7 minutes during peak times. Carrying a ton of luggage? Smarte Cartes and luggage carts (as well as small pets in a secured carriers) are permitted on the AirTrain. Find more information on the AirTrain and public transportation at jfkairport.com or mta.info.
If you’re walking over from JetBlue Terminal 5:
In Terminal 5, take the escalator down to JetBlue’s baggage claim area. On the far right, you'll see an elevator for the TWA Hotel. Take the elevator up to the hotel. Once out of the elevator, follow the red carpeted flight tube to the hotel lobby. Turn right immediately after exiting the flight tube and follow the ramp down and to the left to reach the check-in area.
