Today, let’s visit Airport Hotel Guru! Airport Hotel Guru is a cleverly designed website dedicated to – you guessed it – airport hotels. The best of them, that is. But as is explained on the website, not every hotel with ‘airport’ in its name qualifies as an airport hotel. To be considered, an establishment must meet at least of these criteria:

  • Offer a free airport shuttle that takes no more than 20 minutes to travel between the airport and the hotel
  • Be no more than an 8 minute taxi or train ride away from the hotel
  • Be within a 15 minute walk from the baggage claim 

 

 

Hotels are then rated according to:

  1. The quality of the rooms, with a special emphasis on the comfort of the bed and the noise level from the nearby airport
  2. The ease of getting between the hotel and the airport —especially hotels that are an easy walk from the airport terminal
  3. The availability of internet.
  4. Any conveniences that make travel easier, such as the possibility of checking bags and getting boarding passes at the hotel itself
  5. Room views and any local touches that remind you of where you are
  6. Hotel amenities such as fitness rooms, swimming pools, casinos, etc.
  7. The reputed friendliness of the staff and quality of the food
  8. The television — the size, the quality, and the selection of channels

Hotels are listed by city. See that big ‘departure’ information sign on the front page? Click on the name of a city to read reviews on that city’s best airport hotels.
