We stayed here overnight as we had a flight the next morning. We had a double queen room in 682. Bellhop service is not available, so with 6 bags, a toddler, baby gear etc, it was pretty difficult to manage that alone, not the mention the hurdle you face when trying to wheel all that gear uphill over thick carpet. We had a runway view room which was fairly small. The lockbox didn't work and it really just wasn't worth calling up someone as our baby was due to go down to sleep. The fridge is a wine fridge so you cannot use it for your own food. I had to request a bag of ice to keep my baby's food cold for the next day. Self check in was fine. There is assistance provided if you need it. But it's honestly an easy system to use. Overall, a pretty average stay but definitely expected more given the hype of it's reopening. They did happen to send the baby pack and play before we arrived even though we requested it at check in. Probably because it took us so long to wheel our own bags up. We did dine at Paris Cafe which was lovely. Small servings for the price but tasty and good service.

I SO wanted to love this hotel - it has so much going for it - location, private access to the jetBlue terminal and a great restaurant. As a former legacy airline employee, this place made me so happy when I walked in. I loved the TWA museum with the vintage airline uniforms and all of the cool retro touches like the photo booth, the Connie that is a bar and the very cool rooftop pool/lounge. I also loved the "Twister Room". However, this is a review for a hotel...and that is the part that needs a lot of help. I've stayed here twice in the last 6 months, and haven't gotten a full compliment of towels either time. On my most recent stay, one of the towels had a big hole in it as well. The room was only "average" clean, with visible dirt in the corners, and visible mold in the grout of the shower tiles. Also, no trash can, just a small pad to "recycle"...hey if we are going for "retro" then how about a nice metal trash can? There is no closet, just 3 hangers for clothes, no coffee maker, no water - just an empty mini bar. Something else you need to be aware of - EVERYTHING is an extra charge. Want to work out in the gym? $$$ Check out a litle late - $$$ Use the pool? - $$$ It all ads up fast. Another miss is that the coffee shop across from the front desk doesn't open until 0800 - not exactly on airport time. I really, really wanted this to be my reason to stay an extra night in NYC before flying home to CA from Europe again...but they need to up their game before I drop $500 for an overnight stay any time soon.

We stay here for two things: One - the convenience and Two - the restaurant. This was probably our fourth or fifth stay. We usually book a King room, but because our friend was going to be with us we booked a Double Queen room with runway views. He wasn’t able to join us and we weren’t able to change our reservation,so we kept the (significantly) more expensive room. What a waste! The room does in fact look at the runway, but it also looks at the roadway leading to the departure area for Terminal 5. So instead of seeing various aircraft going by we were treated to cars, taxis, police cars and even an ambulance zipping by our window. Not what we were expecting for sure. The rest of the room offered slightly more space, but the bathroom, bar area (which still isn’t stocked due to COVID) we’re identical to the room we normally book. So, in short, the Double Queen room is NOT worth the extra money. Save your money and use it to enjoy dinner at the Paris Cafe (see my review). Trust me, you’ll need it!

I wish I had more time to stay instead of the 8 hours I stayed. (Early flight). Food 24/7. Cool history. I want to come back to stay and see more slowly. Not to mention, if you taking jet blue airlines, definitely stay here when you have an early flight. That’s what I did. Was amazed on the details of absolutely everything. Loved it.

Retro decor including a rotary phone, but with a wireless phone charger (that stopped working). No coffee. No fridge. No microwave. No closet. Not even a garbage can. Huge window next to the bed. Mine overlooked the bus station with a group of people looking up at me. Who would want the shades open? They have a lot of interesting 60's designs. But seem to forget this is a hotel and certain basic things are amazingly missing. No garbage can? Really? Who's idea was that? There's a small place mat on a table that says put garbage here. Just weird. It's a museum that forgot it's a hotel.
