The TWA Hotel, day 1

I remember the articles, when JetBlue was going to turn the old TWA terminal into part of their check-in area, and later? A hotel!. That proclamation was four years ago, and even though some of the players have changed, it actually happened and opened last month.

I had some things to do in the city of cities so I designed my trip to start at this very point.

And oh how beautiful it is. The details are delightful, down to the dress of the staff, music playing throughout the public areas and the appointments inside the rooms housed in two new wings. The incredibly exhaustive use of a single typeface helped too.

There are more photos from my stay here, but here are a few favorites from day one:
