TWA: Hotel in New York
In New York City, the TWA hotel is the rebirth of a legendary abandoned JFK Airport terminal.
Now boarding for the TWA luxury hotel
Built by star architect Eero Saarinen, the futuristic Trans World Airlines (TWA) terminal opened at the JFK Airport in Queens in 1962.
In 1994, the TWA terminal was classified as a historical monument. The TWA was a historic American airline that carried millions of passengers between 1925 and 2001, before merging with America Airlines.
The terminal closed in 2001 and remained vacant for 18 years until it opened in 2019 after three years of construction, as a unique, world-class airport hotel under the name of MCR Hotels. The project was led by Beyer Blinder Belle Architects to restore the flight center, and the construction of the two new wings by Lubrano Ciavarra Architects and Stonehill Taylor for the interior design. The hotel is glamorous with a sixties style feel. In terms of minimalism you will find round shapes, pop colors, red velvet, brass, and rare hardwoods, all in the same spirit as the TWA logo, which was red and white. The buildings are connected by original tubes lined with red carpet.
The 512 perfectly soundproofed rooms are located in two contemporary 7-story buildings, built on both sides of the terminal. The rooms feature Saarinen-designed furniture re-edited by Knoll, Martini bars, old dial phones found on eBay, and advertising posters. In the white terrazzo-clad bathrooms, you will find air travel kits in their original packaging.
TWA hotel guests have access to six restaurants, eight bars, a café, a fitness center, stores, a rooftop swimming pool, an observation deck, and a museum featuring TWA vintage uniforms.
