Airport hotels don't only depend on bad weather for success. The better ones fill a niche in the airport's suite of services or become a destination on their own.
To an ever-increasing number of passengers, the on-site hotel has become part of the ‘airport experience’.
Particularly popular with transfer passengers facing long layovers and those wishing to avoid getting up at the crack of dawn for an early morning flight, the airport hotel is now so commonplace across the globe that it is almost impossible to find a major gateway without one.
They come in all shapes and sizes and often enjoy some of the highest hotel occupany rates in the world.
