The TWA Hotel is a hotel at John F. Kennedy International Airport in Queens, New York City, that opened on May 15, 2019.
TWA Hotel was developed as part of a project to reuse the head house of the TWA Flight Center, designed in 1962 by the architect Eero Saarinen, which had stopped functioning as an air terminal in 2002. The TWA Hotel project added two buildings on either side of the existing head house. It contains a total of 512 rooms, as well as conference space, several restaurants, and an aviation history museum.The whole hotel is conceived to be recalling the original JFK airport environment, with various details and pieces of furniture recalling the 60’s style.
The TWA is the only hotel operating within the boundaries of JFK Airport. The interior design is by the American Stonehill Taylor firm, who choose the Fusital series H329 by Riccardo Bofil in Orsatin finish. Entirely produced in Italy by Valli & Valli, the H329 brings a 60s minimal look, highlighted by the Orsatin finish.
