Runway Rooms?

A nice article has appeared in Australia’s The Age newspaper on the subject of Runway Rooms, or hotels with good views of the action at airports.

The article is written by Katrina Lobley, but I had the honour of providing some insight to her on the subject, which is naturally close to my heart and the topic of this blog.

In the piece, some of the best hotels from around the world are described, from Atlanta’s Renaissance Concourse to DFW’s Grand Hyatt airport hotel; St. Maarten’s Sonesta Resort to Dubai’s Sheraton Deira. These are some of my favourite places to spend the night.

I love CitizenM at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol. During a recent two night stay I logged 475 aircraft, the majority from my room. Be sure to book an even numbered room on the 4th or 5th floor overlooking the airport.
