Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport has opened a Minute Suites location, an around-the-clock nap center for passengers to relax, conduct business or sleep in a private suite available by the hour. The first of two Minute Suites centers planned for DFW officially opened in Terminal D near gate D23 with nine sleep suites and two shower facilities, a first for the company.
"The addition of Minute Suites gives D/FW another unique and highly sought service for our passengers," said Jeff Fegan, CEO of D/FW Airport. "We are always looking for new ways to enhance our world-renowned customer service here at D/FW, and Minute Suites certainly does that by offering a great way to refresh or get some serious work done during a layover."
Each suite serves as a private oasis for customers, equipped with a daybed sofa that features two sleeping surfaces with fresh pillows and blankets. A sound-masking system in each suite neutralizes noise, and the unique NAP26 audio program helps deliver the equivalent of three hours of sleep in only 26 minutes. Each room also features a high-definition television with access to DIRECTV, the Internet, and flight-tracking information.
Suites are priced at $34 for a one-hour minimum stay and then $8.50 for every 15 minutes thereafter. Rate reductions begin at four hours including a flat overnight rate of $125.
"We are extremely pleased to open our first D/FW location and expand our position as a concept leader among airports," said Daniel Solomon, CEO of Minute Suites. "We have scientifically engineered these suites to provide the best rest available on the go, and we're confident that D/FW passengers will be very pleased with the suite design and amenities, as well as the well-trained staff."
