  • "People come to us with that comment," [said Philadelphia International Airport Supervisor Ronnie Gross], "but people don't pay for that." She also added, "When you have a five-hour lay-over between flights, the first thing you think about is sleep, getting some food or souvenirs and getting some work done."

    Chicago's mayoral spokesman, Tom Alexander, sent an email to the  Sun-Times stating, "We have a large law enforcement presence at the airport, which helps us maintain a safe environment for all travelers. We will work diligently in preventing illegal behavior, as we do throughout the airport."


    I don't see anything in there that would prevent me and Mrs. Isonomia from having some fun on the road - of course, I'm not up on my city ordinances for Chicago... plus renting the space might include a "no farking" clause... still, the soundproof walls implies the developer was taking loud farking into mind...
  • I'm sure this won't go awry at *all.*

    Wait... now farking is illegal? What the hell.
  • I don't know why more airports don't do this.

    shiat, I would've killed for one these things on some of my work trips. Being able to lie down on something soft without the fear of some asshole running off with one of my work files would be a godsend.

    My guess is prostitution, but that's just me.
  • ewe...if they keep up the rooms as well as they keep up the rest of ohare, no thanks
  • I'd love to see just how they'd conceivably prevent people from scootilypooping in those rooms. Cameras? Guards? Yeah good luck with that. I mean, doesn't hotel space that charges by the hour pretty much already imply 'love hotel'?

    Heh heh...scootilypooping.
  • Subby is a foot tapper. Ewwww
  • You can't stop me from having sex in a small room Chicago fascists.

    /it still counts if its just me right?

    I hear that.

    I'm just saying that someone will likely find a way to screw this up for everyone else. Way of the universe, as it were.

    Well, if I was single and in the shape I was when I was single, I'm sure I'd be ruining for everyone by trying to have copious amounts of road sex.. won't be my fault if it goes wrong.

    Welcome to America.
  • Every month or so I stay in the little cubes at Yotel in Heathrow or Gatwick usually the night before my morning trans Atlantic flight or to recover when I land. It's farking brilliant, but would suggest splurging for the premium room. Link
  • Mark Ratner: Subby is a foot tapper. Ewwww


    Naw, he just has a naturally wide stance.
  • I really wish they would let me set up a smokers lounge, where I could charge customers to come on in and puff away.
    If I could get one in every airport.......hummmmm

    That sounds painful. Though, maybe with a freshly laid asphalt road, or lots of lube...
  • I love NBC Chicago!


    "NBC Chicago winks and nudges:"
  • Henry Case nods approvingly.
  • I've felt that 24 hour restaurants like Denny's and iHop should have sleep tubes.

    Drunks stumble in. They're hungry so they have 2AM dinner. They're wasted and tired so they rent a sleep tube. Then they wake up and they're hungry and hungover so they get breakfast and coffee
  • Subby will just keep cruising the bathrooms for that

    How nice of you, Senatormitter.
  • These are a great idea, and not just for airports. Hell, at $120/night, the price point is actually about right for a Chicago airport hotel, which is more than I can say for the actual Chicago airport hotel, most nights.

    When I'm evaluating a travel hotel--i.e., the thing that's en route to the place I'm going, not the place I'm going to be living for a few days--these are my criteria.

    1) Will I step on any drug needles or murder weapons between my car and my room?
    2) Is there clear and incontrovertible evidence of someone else's bodily fluids?
    3) Will I die of toxic mold exposure and/or hypothermia before I make it to checkout?
    4) Is it expensive?

    Most of the motels that satisfy 1-3 fail 4. But everything I need in a motel room (bed, toilet, shower) can be taken care of in 60 sq. feet, and that's without being clever. Four times the occupancy in the same footprint. With the money you'd save on real estate and furnishings, you could charge "drifter motel" prices in the "right-by-the-fancy-part-of-town-where​-the-interstates-cross" district.

    Get on it, Hotel Management majors.
