For terminal sleep, try a mini motel!

Posted in: Airports


The mini motel makes its debut in orange.

OK, we admit. We’re terminal sleepers. We’ve been known to snooze airport, train and bus station-style. You know, back against the wall, legs out front, maybe a backpack or sweatshirt to prop your head. It’s a scene we’re very familiar with. We’re also fans of sleeping on moving trains, feel that suitcases make great makeshift beds, and think it’s perfectly fine to pull up a corner in a hostel doorway when you miss the memo about the lock-out.

So, we were super charged when the New York Times today announced a particularly cool awakening. Frank Giotto, a business traveler tired of long airport waits and miffed (aren’t we all?) albeit quirky—sleep. The whole package costs $39.95 and comes with eye shades, a bed sheet, ear plugs, and a tooth brush and tooth paste.

For more unique sleeps, check out our post on And, be sure to read the story in the New York Times business section. We also recommend reading the suggested uses for the mini motel, ‘free flight opportunities’ being our favorite proposal.

Sweet dreams!
