TWA Hotel Soon to Open at JFK

Postby J » Fri Aug 31, 2018 12:41 pm

Here is an interesting development. The iconic terminal building designed by Saarinen (also designed the Dulles terminal and the St. Louis Arch) will be opening soon. The terminal will be the lobby with the new hotel unobtrusively in the background.

The building has appeared in many films including Catch Me if You Can (tubes with red carpets) and in this commercial for handbags. The models are somewhat distracting but you can see a lot of interior shots in the background.

The video is for the Spring 2013 campaign which goes to show how long it has been in development!

I was there last weekend and saw it from the AirTain shuttle. It appears the new structures behind th terminal building are nearly completed but the white roofs of the terminal still look worn out and shabby. They are not seeking a room reservations yet but you can book an event. Must be close to ready.

Now they’re bringing in an ex-TWA Constellation to be a lounge.
