A Better Way to Sleep at an Airport

You know that travel can be exhausting, especially when it involves air travel. The common sight of people, often indignantly sprawled out on the hard carpet or across a row of seats in a terminal is something we have grown used to. A company called Sleepbox wants to give you a place where you can sleep, work, and recharge — and keep your dignity.

The Sleepbox is a micro-hotel. The eight-foot-tall rooms ranging between 30-45 square feet are soundproof and have a little storage space and memory foam mattresses (no bathroom or shower). You gain access by using the Sleepbox app or going to their website. The rates start at $25-$35 per hour depending on size. You can book an overnight stay (12 hours), capped at $120-$150.

The hotel space opens in Dulles International Airport’s Concourse A around December 7th, just in time to give you a place to catch a nap during your holiday travel.

Sleepbox is also in the process of opening a hotel at Atlanta Hartsfield International and several other non-airport related hotels in places like downtown Boston and Stockholm.

We love the concept and hope to take a test-rest next time we’re traveling through Dulles.

We just received some picture from SleepBox…
