TWA Hotel

The new TWA Hotel is open at JFK airport. Going there is like traveling back in time.

The hotel has retro-styling from 1958. It includes an aviation museum with stewardess uniforms from the past, a fully-restored 1958 Lockheed Constellation airplane, a cocktail lounge suitable for Bill Murray's lounge-singer character, a rooftop pool, fitness center, gift-shop and two good restaurants. You can visit during the day or stay overnight.

I just made a reservation to spend my birthday there (Nov. 2-3). If you're in the neighborhood, come by and join me for a drink in the cocktail lounge!


  1. What a cool place!


    1. They have two cocktail lounges -- one with ceiling-to-floor windows and a second INSIDE the renovated airplane!

  2. Wow, what an awesome space! I love it!

    Seeing your response to Suzanne: there's a lounge INSIDE the airplane?? So cool!

  3. Oh wow this is a place I'd visit - how amazing :)
    I hope your stay is marvelous.

  4. Oofff!! I love!

    I used to be obsessed with looking at abandoned places, and some of my favorites were these retrofuturistic styled ones. Especially juxtaposed with advertisements and pictures from their heyday.

    This will be like staying in one and going back in time! Definitely take lots of pictures.
