Do Luxury Hotels Actually Exist Near Airports?

Friday, May 10th, 2013

With all of the complaints we see regularly about neighborhoods demanding soundproofing because of airport noise, it seems silly to think you’d actually find a luxury hotel near an airport. Hotels? Yes. Luxury hotels? Not a chance.

Apparently, we were wrong.

The truth of the matter is that there are some serious travelers out there – travelers who, when faced with layovers, want to spend some time in a plush environment without having to worry about transportation back and forth from hotel to airport – a nuisance that can contribute to lateness and missed flights. Instead, some world-savvy travelers are looking towards luxury hotels right near their airports.

Here are a couple of examples:

The Sofitel London Heathrow hotel is actually attached to the airport terminal. The super-soundproof hotel features modern rooms with contemporary designs. You’ll also find a bar, spa, and gourmet restaurant to keep you comfortable between flights.

TheĀ Cedarbrook Lodge hotel in Seattle is located just 5 minutes from the hotel – not nearly far enough from the flight paths. The soundproof hotel is quiet, secluded, and surrounded by nature. And if you don’t mind a little bit of noise, you can enjoy a game of bocce ball or croquet while you wait to go back to SeaTac for your next flight.

There are tons of luxurious hotels that exist right near airports, so if that’s the way you usually travel, don’t despair. Five-star comforts exist near airports around the globe.
