Terminal D at Gate D23
This may not be the conventional option for travelers, however, for weary business travelers, the gift of sleep is better than any stocked mini-fridge. Pricing depends on the length of time a guest stays. Many stay for only a few hours between layovers or for a fresh shower after a long trip, however overnight stays are on the menu, too. Rooms are equipped with a bed and daybed sofa, noise-masking system as well as DirecTV and high-speed wifi. Extreme short-term travelers will be pleased to find somewhere to kick up their feet right smack in the airport.
