A recent article in USA Today looks at Minute Suites, a new service that lets travelers rent out small bedrooms at the airport for $30 an hour. The rooms, which opened this month at Hartsfield-Jackson airport in Atlanta, are seven feet by eight feet and include such amenities as a daybed, pillows, fresh linens, a desk and a computer with Internet access. According to the article, airport nap rooms are common in Asia and parts of Europe, but they haven't caught on in the U.S. Cheryl Nashir, associate deputy director at San Francisco International, which is considering similar services, told USA Today that these amenities are the "new frontier." Some travelers, however, believe the prices are too steep.
