Airports to open more hotel rooms

Some of the world’s busier airports are opening more hotel rooms for guests. Some, such as the Yotel in London’s Heathrow Airport, consisting of no more than 75 square feet and contain a bed, desk and shower.

A four-hour stay at this hotel costs $45, and an overnight stay costs around $90. The U.K.-based Yotel expects to open five more in-airport hotels within the next year, including a proposal for New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport.

Last year, Hilton Hotels & Resorts opened a 320-room hotel inside Terminal 3 of the Beijing Capital Airport in China. The hotel has seven restaurants and bars, two ballrooms, 21 meeting rooms and spa services, a cigar bar and fitness center.
