The Lure Of Minute Suites

Philadelphia’s airport offers an unusual option for the weary traveler — Minute Suites, where you can nap in a private room during long layovers. Apparently Philly is the second American airport, after Atlanta, to offers these little private suites for rent.

I’m not sure I’d ever use Minute Suites, but long layovers — like the one today — make it a tempting prospect. Crowds and noise are among the most unpleasant aspects of modern air travel. Who wouldn’t want a little peace and quiet in the midst of a loud, jammed metropolitan airport?
