Travellers will soon be able to slumber in 30 to 45 square feet (2.78 to 4.18 sqm) of soundproofed space in Washington DC’s international airport.
Sleepbox Hotels is scheduled to open the Sleepbox Nap Lounge at Washington Dulles International Airport on December 7.
The microhotel will include 16 individual sleeping pods in a 1,200-square-foot (111.4-metre) storefront space.
USA Today reports that the rooms can be rented by the hour ($25 to $35, depending on configuration) or overnight ($120-150). Each Sleepbox has a bed, but no bathroom or shower.
The Sleepbox Nap Lounge will be located post-security on the airport’s Mezzanine level between gates A6 and A14. Travellers can reserve a room using the Sleepbox mobile app.
The Washington Dulles Sleepbox would be the company’s first US location, although other airport microhotels are planned, according to officials.
Minute Suites, another microhotel company, currently has locations in the Dallas, Philadelphia, Charlotte, and Atlanta airports.
