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

The TWA Hotel

At the center of the hotel is Eero Saarinen’s iconic TWA Flight Center, where restaurants, bars and retail outlets have taken flight. Two hotel wings, designed to reflect and defer to the landmark TWA Flight Center, sit behind the historic building and contain 512 guestrooms 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 hotel guestrooms
  3. 50,000-square-foot event and conference center that can host up to 1,600 people
  4. 200,000-square-foot heart of the hotel with retail outlets, restaurants and bars
  5. The world's biggest hotel gym: a 10,000-square-foot fitness center
  6. AirTrain to JFK terminals
  7. 4,000 parking spaces
