The TWA Hotel, which opened in the spring, is instituting a fee to access the hotel’s infinity pool and pool deck as well as for the hotel’s Pool Bar.

The Pool Bar remains free for hotel guests as well as for those who arrive prior to their check-in time.  Guests can reserve a table at no charge and there are no food or beverage minimums. Visitors can access the pool deck with a day pass for a $25 fee on weekdays and $50 on weekends, and that comes with a $50 minimum tab.

The area overlooks JFK’s runway 4L/22R and has been popular with plane spotters since the hotel’s opening.

The hotel is centered on the storied TWA Flight Center, which serves as its reception area and lobby, and is the only hotel located at John F. Kennedy International Airport.  The Pool Bar serves a variety of aviation-themed drinks including the Runway, a martini served with a flight wings pin.  The63’ by 20’ (19.2 m x 6 m) infinity pool that has a beach entryway and in-water seating and is decorated with several TWA logo mosaics on the pool’s floor.
