I'm working on an article and trying to locate airports with in-terminal hotels (accommodations that do not require pax to step outside or leave the confines of the building). I know MIA has one, and CDG, but does anybody know the names or locations of others around the world -- particularly in Asia or the Middle East? Please send any info to: Aviateur@askthepilot.com

I'm not sure if what's inside Bangkok's airport terminal is a hotel, but over there there's something called dayrooms, basically the idea of a hotel - but directed for transiting passengers, i think. These rooms don't require that you pass thru immigration or customs, but you can just stay there - they're located right inside the terminal building. I think there's a fixed price for a certain number of hours or something. I stayed there a few years ago but don't really remember the specs. If u fish around the net you'll probably find some more info.

There's a Maritim hotel at HAJ that you can get to without stepping outside. That too is a separate building, but there's a skybridge if memory serves. The hotel website claims it's built in the shape of an airplane, but that is stretching things a little. I stayed there once, and it was OK; nothing special though.

Not only is there a Marriott in the old terminal, there is a brand new Westin at the Northwest World Gateway. So, DTW has two "in terminal" hotels.
Is the Marriott still open- it looks very dark when you roll by it... though maybe it's because the Berry terminal just looks dark compared to NW shiny behemoth of a terminal.... The Westin there in fact has its own passenger screening line, though I have never seen anyone in it. Having only transited through DTW, I wonder if passengers can easily access that line after checking in with NW- maybe use it to bypass some of the longer screening lines.
