Get ready for takeoff: The soon-to-open TWA Hotel at JFK Airport is going to be an AvGeek’s dream come true. And starting at noon EST on Feb. 14, it will begin accepting reservations for stays beginning on May 15.

Airport hotels are rarely something to get excited about, but this property is bringing new life to Eero Saarinen’s iconic TWA Terminal, which was built in 1962 at the height of the Jet Age and shuttered in 2001. The sleek, midcentury terminal gained landmark status in 2005, which significantly restricts the changes that can be made to the structure.

The hotel — developed by MCR and Morse Development — will add new buildings with 512 rooms, a 10,000 square-foot gym, rooftop pool, and six restaurants and eight bars, including the Paris Café by Jean-Georges Vongerichten. The hotel will also have a coffee bar by Intelligentsia, retail outlets and a cocktail lounge inside a renovated Lockheed Constellation L-1649A.

Naturally, the design will be both glamorous and distinctly retro — a style that should make you feel like you’ve stepped into an episode of “Mad Men.” But there will be plenty of modern features as well, including ultra-thick glass window panes to block out the noise of the airport. And just think of the plane-spotting opportunities!

“Restoring the TWA Hotel is a labor of love for our entire team,” Tyler Morse, CEO of MCR and Morse Development, said in a statement on Friday. “We are counting down the days until the landmark building, dark since 2001, is filled with life again.”

Reservations will be available exclusively on the hotel’s website, twahotel.com, and rates start at $249 per night.

If you do book a room when the property debuts, be aware that the hotel will be in its soft opening phase, which means some of the outlets and amenities might not be up and running yet.
