When was the last time you actually preferred to get stuck at the airport? Almost never. At least not until the TWA Hotel opened at the JFK Airport. 

This jet-age classic designed hotel will leave you stunned with its retro details that nod to the terminal’s past and its mid-century modern-inspired rooms. Everywhere you look it seems as though you warped back to the vintage sixties but only in aesthetics. This place is definitely a modern functioning hotel with a signature pool that overlooks one of the busiest tarmacs in the world where you can actually roller skate on. The terminal has become a destination for those making a visit from Manhattan or the surrounding area as well as travelers flying from all over the world. 

An airport hotel may not be unique in itself but this hotel definitely is and here is what you can enjoy while you wait for your next flight.
