The TWA Hotel opened at JFK's Terminal 5 in 2019. It repurposed the TWA Flight Center, which was designed in 1962 and shut down in 2001. Walking through the hotel today feels like stepping back in time.
The TWA is the only hotel on property at JFK. My friends tell me that staying at the hotel the night before an early flight and waking up at the airport is magical. It's also a good spot to meet your ride if you're flying in on JetBlue – it's just a short walk from baggage claim and way quieter and prettier than waiting on the crowded curb at Terminal 5 Arrivals.
