Sometimes after a long flight—especially if it’s not in first class—all we want to do is have a little bit of pampering done. But what about if you’ve got to stay at the airport until your next flight? That’s when luxury airport hotels come in very handy.
A massage here, a facial there. Oh, what a dream! The best part about luxury airport hotels is that you don’t have to travel very far to begin your stylish relaxation. There are many luxury airport hotels around the world, but this time we’re talking about the best ones in North America. However, if you’re heading to Europe check out our top hotels there.
The Top 5 Luxury Airport Hotels in North America
1. Fairmont Vancouver Airport
The Fairmont Vancouver is one luxury airport hotel that’s located right inside the airport. We spent some time there on our last trip to Vancouver when we tested out Absolute Spa – and can vouch that it’s definitely a luxurious place. It was even awarded the Best Airport Hotel in North America in 2012 – as well as a Conde Nast Readers Choice winner.
The rooms are gorgeous (soundproofed, of course) and the hotel offers two restaurants, Globe@YVR and Jetside Bar. They also have an amazing health and wellness centre for you to go work out all the delicious West Coast food you’re sure to have enjoyed during your stay.
2. Renaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel
The Renaissance Los Angeles Airport Hotel boasts luxury living where “comfort and technology coexist” in their rooms and suites. The hotel has live entertainment, delicious California cuisine (and wines) at their Bistro and over 18,000 square feet of event space if you’re planning on partying it up in L.A.
You can work up a sweat at their wellness centre or take a dip in the refreshing pool – all while being close to LAX. This hotel is so luxe you probably won’t want to get your flight home.
3. Hilton New York JFK Airport Hotel
This luxury airport hotel is located just half a mile away from JFK Airport. This hotel is great for mixing business with pleasure as they have a complimentary business centre but also a bar, pool and wellness centre. It can’t be all work and no play when you’re vacationing, right?
Hilton New York also has in-hotel dining at 144 Restaurant and offer room service from 6am-12am every day. Midnight snack? Yes, please!
4. Miami International Airport Hotel
The Miami International Airport Hotel has that beachy vibe we love about Miami. Which only makes it better that you’re able to walk straight from the hotel to your gate! Best of all: they’ll make sure that they get your bags there for you. (How sweet.)
The rooms are soundproof, they offer spa-like amenities and boast a totally stress-free environment. Isn’t that what we would expect from Miami? They also offer up rooms for day stays and layovers!

5. Hilton Toronto Airport Hotel
The Hilton Toronto Airport Hotel has a heated outdoor pool – and what could be better after a long flight than a little dip? It’s located right across the street from Toronto Pearson Airport so you won’t have to travel very far to indulge in the life of luxury airport hotels.
Book a Junior King Suite and you’ll have a separate living area and a semi-private bedroom. If that’s not really your style (but how could it not be?) there are 419 other rooms to choose from.
