Long-haul air passengers looking to take the stress out of their journey can do so by staying in an airport hotel.
An overnight stay at a hotel located at an airport can eliminate the stress of having to get up at the crack of dawn to catch an early morning flight and can make the travel experience so much more relaxing.
And while airport transfers are a safe and inexpensive way to travel from an airport to a hotel, staying in a hotel at an airport is an ideal way for people on long-haul connecting flights to the other side of the world to experience the comfort of a hotel and still have the convenience of being close to the airport.
Kathrin Cockhill, director of sales and marketing at the Radisson Blu Hotels & Resorts at Stansted Airport, said: ”The main advantage is that you are on site, ready to go and you can start your holiday the night before – which adds to the whole relaxing experience of going on a break.”
And airport staff at hotels around the world are more than capable of dealing with even the most stressful of travel difficulties. One recent example of this was when a 32-year-old woman staying as a guest at a hotel in Gatwick Airport went into labour.
Quick-thinking staff members at the Sofitel Hotel at the airport’s north terminal organised for an ambulance to take Shan Joseph, from St Lucia, to East Surrey Hospital after she went into labour five weeks early.
