The mid-century-modern structure was completed by Saarinen in 1962 for Trans World Airlines – a major American airline that operated from 1930 until 2001. Formerly known as TWA Flight Center, the building was closed in 2001 as it was unable to support the size of modern aircraft.

New York-based firms Lubrano Ciavarra Architects, Beyer Blinder Belle and Stonehill Taylor contributed to the vast renovation and extension to the structure. The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey (PANYNJ), which operates JFK Airport, hotel owner-operator MCR and developer Morse were also involved in the efforts to revitalise the iconic landmarked building.

It has a notable winged construction with curved, beak-like concrete rooflines and glass curtain walls. Interiors details include a red-coloured lounge with seating built into the floor.
The sunken lounge was restored during the renovation and accompanied by carpet in a Chili Pepper Red hue – the signature colour created for the project by the architect. Other portions of flooring are covered in thousands of penny-round tiles.
沉沒的休息室在裝修期間進行了修復，並伴隨著辣椒紅色調的地毯 – 建築師為項目創造的標誌性色彩。 地板的其他部分覆蓋著成千上萬的圓形瓷磚。
The hotel’s 512 rooms are housed in two new curved buildings placed behind Saarinen’s structure. These have one of the thickest curtain-wall constructions in the world, featuring seven panes in order to block runway noise.
Inside, guest rooms are designed to evoke the history of the original terminal, with elements harking back to 1960s design.
White walls, dark wood floors, walnut-panelled accents, and bronze accents characterise the rooms, while ample natural light floods in via floor-to-ceiling windows.
Details include vintage posters from TWA and Saarinen-designed furnishings, which were provided by Knoll. Among the pieces are red, curvy Womb chairs and white Tulip side tables. A custom walnut desk area behind the bed has an armless Executive Chair in tan leather.
