Have you heard about the new retro TWA Hotel at JFK (John F. Kennedy) Airport that has become a major tourist destination? Not only can you step back in time at the TWA Hotel, you can also brag to friends that you stayed overnight at the only on-site hotel location on the JFK grounds!
The iconic 1962 landmark is reigniting the magic of the “Jet Age” and has captured the imagination of travel aficionados and retro-junkies alike.
But if you do visit TWA Hotel, it would be “The Intelligent Choice” to consider parking at SmartPark JFK to save, compared to the on-site hotel parking rates.
Overnight base rates at TWA Hotel are $48, up to $199 for a week’s stay, and $38 for two hours. Compare that to SmartPark’s daily rate of $18.95 (plus 10.375% New York City Parking Tax & 6.625% Airport Use Recovery Fee)!
Plus, if you book 14 or more days in advance with our Early Bird Pre-Pay Special, you can save $3 per day! That doesn’t even include SmartPark rewards points earned through our frequent parker program and our “Every 7th Day Free” promotion!
