In-Terminal Hotels?

Fri Jun 25, 2004 2:28 am

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

Jakarta sort of has an in terminal hotel. It is after curbside and before the ticket counters.

Incheon has only a transit hotel after Customs.

Thats all I have seen in my limited trips to Asia.

I believe Luis Muñoz Marin International Airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico has one. Do a search...something should come up.

Hey Aviateur.

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.

ZRH has something like a hotel inside Terminal A

It is not really a hotel, it is more a small hall with very very small rooms which consists of a Bed, a Table and one Bathroom (for all) outside the rooms.

I do not want to call it a hotel. I prefer "tiny dwelling" for transit passengers.

I *think* DXB has one right in the terminal building, ie airside. I saw signs for it at one end of the building, whereas the exit for the terminal was towards the middle of the building.

ORD - Hilton in the parking lot, but accessible via a tunnel.

MEM - Rather strange crew hotel upstairs in main terminal.

YVR - Right above the ticket counters, and very nice.

MIA - Part of the main terminal building.

BOS - in the parking lot, but accessible via enclosed walkways

DTW - Marriott in upper floors of older terminal building


(P.S. I've been to SJU quite a few times, and never noticed an in-terminal hotel there - unless it is brand new).

I think its MCO, but i could be mistaken.

Concord977,

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.

The Hilton at LHR is connected to T4 by a covered walkway. It's outside security, immigration, etc., and technically is a separate building, but you definitely do not need to step outdoors.

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.

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.

IAH has a Marriott in-between terminals B and C, and although it's technically outside of the terminal, there is an underground tram that connects the terminals and the hotel, likely the single slowest train I have ever been on...

I've stayed at a few:

The transit hotel at Seoul Incheon is by far the best. Its located airside of course and each sizeable room contains a double bed, TV w/ satelite, desk, and restroom w/ shower. The hotel also has free Wi-Fi in all rooms, or free terminals in the lobby. You can stay for up to 6 hrs for only U$32.00. Its called the Air Garden Hotel and is operated by Sheraton.

I have also stayed at the Airport Hotel at MIA. Its located in the terminal, landside, and is nothing to write home about. Plain rooms, no closet, and expensive, at U$89 for up to six hours (in by 10AM, out by 4:00pm). I think its geared mostly towards international pax arriving in the morning from Latin America and departing in the evenning for Europe.

At MEX, the Marriott (now Camino Real) is located across from the passenger drop-off pick-up. It's connected to the terminal by a a looong elevated walkway. Rooms facing the terminal on the upper floors have excellent views of the runway.

The Sheraton Gateway, attached to YYZ's Terminal 3 is nice and a favorite of Priceline when you bid for an airport area hotel. It's located landside above the parking garage and is like any 3 star hotel. Its also connected by an elevated walkway to the terminal builfing. My bid of U$45 was accepted for this hotel.

Um no. Bidding on priceline for 3* YYZ Airport zone tends to give you the Airport Marriott about 80% of the time. Trust me, I do it maybe twice/month.  Smile

HNL has a small sort of short term hotel called the I think it's called the "Clothes Tree" in the terminal. One may take like an 8 hr rest and shower there. It's only good for a stopover passenger.

Even though the current Hyatt at DFW is located within the half-circle of Terminal C, I believe you still have to walk through the parking garage and outside a little bit in order to get inside the terminal.

As an aside, one of my clients is a supplier to the new DFW Terminal D and Grand Hyatt, and I was at the site touring the construction last week. It is truly beautiful! I also went on the roof of the existing Hyatt with some PR people so they could get a few photographs.

Yeah, I could easily hang out in a hotel that is smack in the middle of an airport. My closest experience to that was the Sheraton Gateway between the runways at LAX. From my window on the south side, I could see the action on the south pair. From the ends of the halls, I could see the whole bloody place!

The Marriott Hotel at DTW is closed. It closed last year. They are considering putting all of the airport authority offices in that building once the old Smith Terminal is torn down.

PIT currently has the Hyatt connected by a walkway, and in the olden days, at Greater Pittsburgh International Airport (I miss that place Crying! Now it's the Airside Business Park Acting devilish) they had a hotel on the upper level. Same with a movie theater, observation deck, soda fountain, bank, tower on the terminal, and the famous marble compass rose in the lobby. That place reminds me of Kansas City and Northwest 727's for some reason.
