  • TWA Hotel at JFK (Previously Eero Saarinen's TWA Flight Center)

    The incredibly beautiful 1960's era Eero Saarinen-designed airport terminal at JFK has been revamped and reopened as the TWA Hotel.

      It is, isn't it! It is a fully functional airport hotel, so definitely a real (and even practical) option if an overnight/transit stop in JFK is needed.

        Just one concern about the TWA hotel....... Air Train breakdown

        If Air Train doesn't work and it didn't the day I flew out from JFK earlier this month, you're going to have to take the JFK inter-terminal shuttle and fight with hundreds of people. On that day, the buses were in short supply.

        I didn't stay at TWA but checked-in earlier at T7 and wanted to air train over to check it out.
        The dis-organised bus system that day meant I'll visit it another time.

        If you're flying from T5 no issue but if you're flying from another terminal.....

          As an historical building, architectural and aviation geeks will love this new TWA hotel. I love the rooftop pool and the runway view rooms. The drinks at the Connie are pricey but the experience is just amazing.

          However, as a hotel, it fails miserably. There are lots of things that are not working. There are also services that should be provided, but not so. I also don't buy that self-check-in idea. TWA hotel is no YOTEL and does not price like YOTEL.

          Anyway, here is the link to the photo album for those who wants to take a look...
