The TWA terminal at New York’s JFK airport is being turned into a glamorous hotel. The hotel is scheduled to open in early 2019 and room rates will start at $250/night. Some of the highlights of the project include an observation deck to watch planes and a rooftop pool. Sounds really fun!
New ‘Jet Age’ Hotel In TWA Terminal JFK
“Hotel at iconic TWA terminal will evoke glamour of jet age”
As reported by Yahoo….When it opened in 1962, the sleek TWA terminal at New York’s Kennedy Airport was the embodiment of jet-age style. Now, construction is underway to transform the landmark into a $265 million hotel that will conjure the same glamour, smack in the middle of an airport better known for controlled chaos than comfort.
The hotel, being built by New York-based MCR Development, will include two new buildings with 505 rooms, a rooftop pool, an observation deck where guests can watch planes take off and a museum stocked with artifacts, including uniforms lent by former TWA flight attendants.
But the starring feature will be the long-closed TWA Flight Center, designed by architect Eero Saarinen. The center will be preserved, along with its Charles Eames furniture and Noguchi fountain, as the hotel’s lobby.
