Spending the night at the airport

Houston airport is a large and crowded place that stays 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 or if your flight is cancelled. Keep in mind that you will only be able to stay if you have a ticket for the next day, and you cannot enter the enclosure if the doors are already closed. There are announcements and music throughout the night, so it is recommended to have earplugs or headphones.

Where to rest: Most seats inside the terminals have armrests, so your best option will be to have a sleeping bag and lay on the floor. In Terminal D, you will find a chapel which is quiet at night, while in the boarding area of Terminal E, there are carpeted floors and a few of the eateries have comfortable benches. There are also several VIP lounges inside the main buildings for those passengers that qualify, but these are closed at night. Finally, there is a hotel inside the airport grounds.

Baggage: The enclosure does not offer lockers or luggage storage offices.

Eating and drinking: The only options during the night are vending machines.

Restrooms: Showers inside the Centurion Lounge.

Wi-Fi: The access is free.

Other services available around the clock: ATMs, commercial stores, chapels, baby changing facilities.
