Given the size of the high-tech new Daxing International Airport in Beijing, which opened in late September, it's only fitting that the airport's only in-terminal hotel is equally as grand.
Aerotel Beijing, part of the Plaza Premium Group's Aerotel airport hotel chain, is China's biggest airport hotel.
The 215-key establishment, which opened its doors to guests on September 25, spans two floors and is more than 9,000 square meters (96,875 square feet) in size -- a relatively small chunk of the starfish-shaped airport terminal, which is a whopping 700,000 square meters.
Located in the Northwest Pier of Daxing, Aerotel Beijing is five minutes away from the nearest domestic check-in counters and a 10-minute walk from international ones.
The design is relatively modest -- think minimalist furnishings and neutral colors. Instead, the hotel focuses on providing what's needed the most among travelers -- comfortable bedding and powerful showers.
Guests can rent rooms in blocks of three, six, nine or 12 hours -- so there's no need to pay a day rate.
