See Inside the Hotel That Used to Be an Airport Terminal
The TWA Flight Center opened at JFK airport in 1962, changing the meaning of sleeping in the airport.
“Guests of the TWA Hotel can enjoy one of 512 guest rooms where they’ll have an expansive view of JFK runways. But, there’s no need to worry about jet noise—the rooms use the second-thickest glass in the world. At four-and-a-half inches thick, you can enjoy watching the comings and goings of planes from the vintage chairs in each room without the roar of jets disturbing you. Want to give a family member a call to update them that your flight is delayed? There’s a rotary phone in each room for that.”
The hotel features 6 restaurants, 8 bars, a rooftop deck with a pool, a museum of the history of the TWA, and a lounge equipped with an old-fashioned departure flipboard. Booking rates start at $224 per night.
