BEST GUESTROOM UPPER MIDSCALE

TWA HOTEL

JAMAICA, NEW YORK

Saarinen for the flight center (after all, the hotel is connected
to the terminal through the original red-carpeted flight tubes).
But it's balanced with a neutral palette of whites and blues with
warm, natural walnut and brass finishes, giving the space a more
modern touch.

THE DESIGN FIRM: Stonehill Taylor, New York
THE MUSE: Restore the neofuturistic glamour of the TWA Flight

Center built in 1962 for Trans World Airlines (TWA) commissioned by American business magnate, investor and pilot (among
other impressive titles) Howard Hughes and designed by worldrenowned architect Eero Saarinen. Ensure that globe-trotting
guests get a taste of the Golden Age of Flying, but don't wing it in
terms of mod cons.
THE MAGIC: Balancing the right nostalgic tones with contemporary chic was paramount in the guestrooms. Stonehill Taylor's
interiors reference the master designer's era, for starters. A
custom floor-to-ceiling brass pole lamp offers a modern take on
an original midcentury detail, placed adjacent to true Saarinen
icons (a Knoll Womb chair and Tulip side table). Yes, designers
made use of Chili Pepper Red, the signature color created by

THE MAVERICK MOVE: If you've got it, flaunt it. The view, that
is. Floor-to-ceiling windows frame the runways outside. "In many
of the rooms, beds are positioned to let guests enjoy the exciting
rhythm of the runway or the glory of Saarinen's TWA Flight
Center," says Michael Suomi, former principal for Stonehill Taylor,
who launched his own firm, Suomi Design Works, in November.
THE MESSAGE: Length of stay isn't a one-size-fits-all situa-

tion, so guestrooms need to cater to road warriors and leisure
loungers alike. For the check-in/check-out types, hooks on the
walls accommodate just the essentials and ensure all belongings are visible, making it harder for guests to forget their items
as they rush to their next flight. For the ones who can stick
around awhile? Well, just mix a drink at the in-room martini
bar, stocked with all the elegance of the inspo era. Don Draper
would be proud.
