Loved the hotel. Enjoyed the retro elements which were well done. Fun to go up the stairs to the Connie. The location is perfect - walk to terminal. No miserable shuttle buses. Room was very comfortable. Will stay here again and have recommended it to many friends. A very fun place!

The service, staff, food, common areas were wonderful. I loved nearly everything about my experience but there were a few head-scratchers when it came to the room. Traditional amenities like a coffee maker (so I can have a cup while getting ready without getting dressed and leaving the room first to get it 3 floors down) and ready access to toiletries like lotion were missed. The lack of a closet was honestly just ridiculous. No one wants to see their clothes hanging on the wall. And if I'd been traveling with someone, there's no way we'd have fit all of our clothes on 4 hangers/6 hooks. The tiny drawer wouldn't close with my 2 pairs of underwear, socks, and bathing suits in it. Nearly everything had to stay in my suitcase.

The good stuff… Overall we (two friends) had a great time enjoying a quick getaway from Brooklyn. The staff throughout the hotel was incredibly friendly and attentive, including housekeeping, bar, and pool desk staff. The hotel is filled with neat nooks and stuff to explore. People-watching was entertaining, and we ended up chatting and hanging out with other random guests. It was a fun and friendly vibe! Cocktails were delicious, and pours were generous. Rooms really were soundproof! Room for improvement… The poolcoozie was wonderful, however, it was closed the entire first day due to freezing weather. The pool bar/restaurant was also closed that whole first day/night, so this eliminated two entire “activities” and spots we’d planned to enjoy the evening of our stay. (We wanted to enjoy drinks on the roof by the fire while watching the planes.) The phone in the room did not work. The curling is only one single court and it is not level, so the stones all slide to the left. The food hall leaves a lot to be desired and is extremely overpriced. Finally, the amount of single-use plastic here is appalling. All drinks and all food orders (aside from the Paris Cafe) are in disposable cups and containers with plastic utensils. Additionally, there are no trash cans anywhere to be found.

Hotel was pretty cool, 3rd floor room was still street level though. Left my car while I traveled with the valet which is convenient but it was side swiped while I was away and of course nobody told me about it. I should have checked it over before leaving but I’m sure they would have denied it anyway.

If you have a runway view, plan on not sleeping soundly throughout the night. Very noisy from all the traffic at the terminal. Rooms a little worn out. Definitely not worth the price. I think a day pass would probably the best thing

Stayed the night before an early flight just across the street with JetBlue. Super convenient, and the 1960's vibe is terrific. Too chilly to enjoy the rooftop bar or Connie, the bar in the Constellation plane, but the other venues were welcoming. Have enjoyed the museum-like disp;ays on prior visits.

We found ourselves needing an overnight when our connection was blown by a delayed flight from Milano, and booked the TWA Hotel because of it's location next to T5. We chose to pay for the hotel rather than take the complementary hotel offerings from Delta mainly because of an early rebooked flight from JFK to SEA. We're glad we did, because the hotel was clean, comfortable, and for those of a certain age, highly nostalgic. We enjoyed the atmosphere, the restaurant was reasonably good, not exceptional but certainly at the upper end of airport hotels, and did I mention the location? The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, the shower was hot, and, of course, the location.

You Will Be Disappointed! It is the old TWA terminal which in its day may have been very trendy. Today it’s just a big cold, cavernous building with a few people milling around desperately trying to find a nice restaurant with pleasant decor and decent food. Otherwise, you can spend a fortune at the Paris Cafe a Jean George restaurant with lousy food and bad service. The coldness of the “iconic” building and interior is only outdone by the rude and unprofessional staff. Not jus one but everyone. They either don’t know or provide incorrect information. Just what you want when you’re checking on your flight, etc. The only hope for this ridiculous concept is if the current owners fail as they will and a reputable hotel management company takes it over. Don’t miss their “building block” as advertised in their video and literally spend your time playing with building blocks.

I had heard about the TWA hotel and when I finally had a business reason to be flying into JFK, I chose the TWA hotel. It is fantastic. the 60's vibe is everywhere -- even the music you hear from the moment you leave your room. I got to the hotel in time to check out the "Connie" bar which is a great experience -- having a cocktail in a Lockheed Constellation that has been restored and converted into a cocktail lounge. Up on top is the rooftop pool bar. The pool is open year round and is steaming in the winter at 95 degrees. The view from the pool and bar of the airport operations is fantastic. Cocktails were pricey -- but hey, it's New York and I expected it. Would absolutely stay here again.

Ok, being a child from the ‘60’s/‘70’s, and a huge fan of aviation, I really like this hotel. We were traveling internationally, and didn’t want to be rushed, so flew in a day before and booked here for the stay over. So convenient being right at airport. The rooms are basic and not much to brag about, but had a nice king size bed. There was a mini-fridge in our room, but it didn’t get very cold, but not a huge deal. My only room criticizing is that mini bar had nothing in it, so that’s a miss. But the rooftop pool being heated is fantastic! And the bar/grill beside it has fabulous views and is so convenient. The super cool decor rooms around lobby are fun for pics, and the signs around like a timeline are fun to read. There’s a restaurant on site that we had dinner at, and food was okay but service was great. I would recommend a pop over if you have a very long jfk connection or a stay if you are flying out internationally next day like we did. Trams are well marked and make terminal to hotel easy. Cute place!
