With only a few days left until JFK Airport’s throwback hotel opens its doors, owners are giving eager guests an early look at the property’s interior, including its unique-to-the-60s pool.
The entirely retro property due to open on 15 May, will offer flyers a nostalgic stay complete with staff sporting old-school flight attendant uniforms, Jet Age-designed rooms and a museum dedicated to TWA – the airline the terminal was originally built for.
In fact, everything inside JFK Airport’s new hotel will be reminiscent of the glorious era, except the property’s pool, which will pull guests out of the 60s and into the high-end 21st century.
Located on the roof of the $265 million property, the 64-foot-long pool will be an infinity model that’ll overlook the runway, and provide guests (as well as non-guests) with both an underwater and above-water view of the runway.
That’s not all, the swimming spot also has its only bar for runway-side cocktails.
Other highlights of the property include six restaurants, eight bars and a lobby completely transformed into fab recreations of the Jet Age.
