Snoozing can be a great evil during a business meeting but not in a busy airport. Welcome, Sleepbox where you snooze and don’t lose at Dulles Airport.
The airport is not the most comfortable place to find rest and is full of many inconveniences — for instance, a canceled flight late at night.

It has happened to many of us, and the first thing that comes to mind is where am I going to sleep? Despite travel exhaustion, the airport floor should not be a place to rest!
Finding a place to nap, or get some privacy for a few hours in an airport is a problem. Thankfully, not anymore if you happen to be traveling through Dulles International Airport in Washington, D.C. The airport has recently launched Sleepbox.
Why you snooze and don’t lose with Sleepbox at Dulles Airport
1. A private space all for you
Sleepbox is a small modular room tastefully designed with high-end details you can rent by the hour. Airport hotel rooms for a nap or a refresh can be expensive, but for one hour, you pay $25, and you can get some restorative me-time.
2. There is front desk staff
I have seen other sleep boxes at airports you pay with a credit card to gain access. While I like the convenience of this, I can’t help obsessing if the room is clean. That thought doesn’t sound inviting and what happens if there is a door jam? Who will help me get out to catch my flight?
Sleepbox at Dulles Airport has staff on duty 24/7, for security and cleanliness. The rooms are prepped by staff for the next traveler with clean sheets, blankets, and pillows.
3. You can book via the SleepBox mobile app
4. There’s no check-in or checkout time
You can access and book any time, and stay as long as you need.
5. Feel like a VIP
Vane talked to Peter Chambers, the Co-Founder and Chief Operating Officer of Sleepbox; and he told us, that Sleepbox is “the first membership-free lounge space. Anyone can walk in and use our services, no expensive tickets or status is required to have access to our spaces. There is no need to purchase a $2500 ticket to access our service; you can stay with us for $25.”
The sound of that made me feel like an instant VIP! And who doesn’t want to feel like a VIP at the airport?
The rise of napping pods in airports is a hot trend, and we mentioned it in detail in our Airport Wellness 2019 Trend Report.
