Picture this: A neon hotel sign with a flashing arrow directs you to a low-rise building where the walls are paper thin and the windows rattle every time a plane roars by overhead. No room service, a swimming pool if you're lucky, one or two rooms that could be pressed into service for a meeting if necessary.
Typical airport hotel, right? Wrong! As planners who have recently used airport hotels will attest, today's airport properties can match their downtown peers feature for feature.
