An ode to the glamorous 60s, the TWA Hotel makes our Mad Men dreams come true!
Spending the night in a hotel close to the airport usually means less morning stress, probably more sleep before the flight and zero means of transportation- but it is usually not associated with great style or outstanding interiors. Now, this notion is about to change dramatically, thanks to the rebirth of the iconic TWA Flight Center just outside of John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City.
The legendary white terminal, which was designed in 1962 by groundbreaking Finnish-American architect Eero Saarinen for the Trans World Airlines -a much-loved company better known as TWA which shut down in 2001- has been redesigned and reimagined into the TWA hotel, set to open this spring.
The retro-inspired hotel is set in two low-rise buildings and will have 512 guest rooms, featuring Knoll furnishings and old Hollywood-inspired interiors. The hotel will also offer 50,000 square feet of conference, event and meeting space.
