Rooms at the forth­com­ing TWA Ho­tel at New York’s JFK In­ter­na­tional Air­port will have floor-to-ceil­ing win­dows with views of the run­way or the iconic, Eero Saari­nen de­signed former TWA Flight Cen­ter build­ing now be­ing con­verted into a lux­ury ho­tel.

A mockup of the ho­tel rooms was pre­sented to jour­nal­ists in a JFK hanger build­ing, along with pre­views of staff uni­forms based on vin­tage TWA flight at­ten­dant uni­forms.

Among the unique fea­tures of the rooms were toi­letry kits sim­i­lar to those given to TWA pas­sen­gers, logo slip­pers, mid-cen­tury fur­nish­ings, and ro­tary dial tele­phones. Mini-bars in­clude cans of vin­tage Tab diet soda. Work­sta­tions will be sit­u­ated be­hind the beds, with views out the win­dows. Beds also will face the win­dows. Slated to open in 2019, the TWA Ho­tel will have 512 guest rooms, six restau­rants, and eight bars – in­clud­ing one housed in a vin­tage Lock­heed Con­stel­la­tion air­craft in TWA liv­ery. The ho­tel will fea­ture a 200,000 square foot lobby and a rooftop pool.

The former TWA ter­mi­nal de­buted in 1962 and closed in 2001.
