16 Airport Hotels Located Inside or Adjacent to Airport Grounds

Airport hotels can be extremely convenient whether you are departing extra early or arriving extra late.

There are lots of airport hotels but some of them are special because they are located on the grounds of the airport or adjacent to the airport, making them basically attached to the terminals.

These type of properties offer unrivaled convenience for travelers and in this article we will take you through 16 different airport hotels located across the country.

Factors to look at when staying at an airport hotel

If you’re thinking about staying at an airport hotel located on the grounds of the airport, here are some of the different factors you want to look at.

Dedicated TSA security checkpoint

It’s not common to find but a small percentage of airport hotels will offer hotel guests a dedicated TSA security checkpoint.

You basically roll out of bed, take your luggage with you, and you’ll be able to get through what should be a much less hectic security checkpoint all thanks to your status as a hotel guest.

It’s a great VIP experience but as mentioned it’s not very common to find. It’s also not clear to me if you will be able to take advantage of things like TSA Pre-Check or CLEAR when these lines are available. My guess would be that the former would be available but maybe not the latter?

Runway views

Most hotels located on the grounds of an airport are designed to provide runway views and sometimes the views can be pretty stunning with things like panoramic windows from a presidential suite.

There are a few airport hotels that may only offer airport views (which essentially is just a few of the “tarmac”) but either way, be prepared to pay a premium for the better views.

Direct access to airport terminals

Some airport hotels will have access to all of the terminals but in other situations you may have to take a tram or a shuttle bus to get to some of the terminals.

(Access could mean taking a covered walkway directly to a terminal or having to walk through a couple of additional terminals to get to where you need to be.)

Obviously, the convenience factor goes down if you have to hop on a shuttle so make sure you have clarity on exactly what terminals you can get direct access to.

Parking

Some airport hotels will offer your standard parking options such as valet and self parking.

Other times, you may need to utilize the garage parking for the airport, though. Sometimes you can get a discount on the airport parking so be sure to look into that.
