There is the Airport Marriott – literally on the grounds of IAH
– located between Terminals B and C. I stayed there for the first time a few weeks ago. The rooms were quite sub-par for a so-called upscale airport hotel. But the view was spectacular. Excellent if you are in to spotting planes. I checked in at 10:30 AM
and rested for the afternoon – got to see the European heavies and countless Coex ERJs.
The revolving restaurant upstairs is pretty decent and an even greater view. The tram stops downstairs.
