Overnight layover guide. Sleeping facilities in the public zone or boarding area

Please note that some published services and schedules may be subject to change. If the idea is to spend the night in the public area, consider a plan B in case the stay inside the airport is only allowed for those who are about to board.

Spending the night at the airport

Dulles airport is very crowded and is open 24 hours a day, so you will be able to spend the night inside the enclosure if you have a flight early in the morning, and thus avoid extra expenses in accommodations and transfers. Make sure to bring something warm and earplugs for a better rest.

Where to rest: Seats in the public area of the terminal have armrests, but after the security controls you will find more comfortable benches, particularly in concourses C and D. There are also VIP lounges with more amenities and privacy, but these are closed at night. In turn, a Marriot Hotel is located opposite the Terminal.

Baggage: The terminal does not operate luggage storage offices, so you will have to keep your bags with you until check-in.

Eating and drinking: The Dulles Gourmet Market located in Baggage Claim 14, is open 24 hours a day.

Restrooms: Showers available inside the VIP lounges.

Wi-Fi: Free access.

Other services available around the clock: ATMs, chapel, baby care rooms, children's playground.
