On May 15, 2019, the TWA Hotel opens at New York JFK Airport. As an aviation sector, this 500+ room hotel may be the coolest thing ever.
I wrote about the TWA Hotel a few months ago and just about everything about this hotel is aviation theme and I live for it. While some airport hotels are better than others, I have never wanted to vacation at an airport hotel before.
We knew the TWA Hotel JFK wanted a rooftop pool. They have now revealed even more details about it and OMG.
TWA Hotel JFK wants an infinity pool on the roof with amazing views of the airport. The pool will be 63 feet by 20 feet and will be endless edge. In the summer there will be a traditional pool, while in the winter there will be a pool cuzzi with temperatures of up to 100 degrees.
The water in the pool will also be cleaned every 30 minutes; They claim that a standard pool recirculates every six hours.
The infinity pool is inspired by the Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Cap d'Antibes, France.
The pool will overlook JFK's lane 4L / 22R and will have views to Jamaica Bay. Then, the observation deck will also have a view of the 13R / 31L lane, which is 14,511 meters long, making it the second longest commercial lane in North America.
The rooftop will have a cocktail lounge, called The Pool Bar & Observation Deck. There will be signature cocktails in the air, such as Mile High Spritz, as well as a full menu for food.
Tires and pool are open to hotel guests, or non-hotel guests will also be able to reserve a table at the pool bar, which can be a fun way to kill some time during layover.
I still can't figure out how wonderful the TWA Hotel is going to be. JFK has been among the worst airports in the country when it comes to the quality of airport hotels. At this point, several hotels have closed and turned into homeless light sources, including the Sheraton, which I used to frequent.
So to see JFK go from having no good airport hotels to having what is without doubt the world's best airport hotel is an incredible development.
I think the big question with this hotel will be the service, though. When I think of JFK airport and hotels in the area, incredible customer service is usually not the first thing that comes to mind. I would be curious to see if this hotel could set a new standard.
I just can't get over how cool this pool looks …
