AVR understands that not everyone is a travel expert and sometimes
a simple guide to help you navigate a busy airport is all you need. Don’t
stress, not only do we have the perfect guide to help anyone navigate Houston airport,
but we will also showcase some great rest options or eateries to keep you
entertained while waiting for your flight.
airport is not a hard task as many signs help navigate lost or confused
travelers and like most airports, IAH is broken down into terminals with a tram
that runs through them. If you have enough time and want to shop, the
airport is full of shopping opportunities from the automated electronic and
cosmetic kiosks to the Duty-Free stores available in all terminals. Even luxury
brands like Swarovski and Chanel can be found within the airport. If you need a
place to charge your electronics or work on your laptop, there are charging
stations and outlets across the terminals and near gates. Wi-Fi is
complimentary and charging stations that offer rapid charging can be found as
well, but they require a fee and usually don’t work with older devices.
When it comes to eating, IAH has some amazing options. Below are
some of our personal favorites by terminal, but there are plenty of others to
consider. For a full list, see here.
When it comes to
trying to relax or shower up before your flight, IAH has a multitude of options
from Airport Lounges to an onsite hotel.
Most of the airport lounges require some kind of airline rewards membership or
card holder status to gain access too but check ahead as there are municipal
ones for anyone to use. Marriott hotels is on site within the airport and can
be the perfect place to relax for a long overnight layover. You can always see
if the airport has day room rates which allow travelers to use the room for the
day, but not necessarily overnight. Showers are offered in some airport lounges
and are a great way to freshen up and relax before your flight.
Entertainment Tips for Long Layovers
To best enjoy Houston
during a long
layover, you should have at least six hours to work with. Taxis are the
quickest way to get to the city, but you can also take the bus. You should have
just enough time to take a stroll through downtown or maybe check out a museum
like the Houston
Museum of Natural Science. If you have a lot of time and give yourself the
whole day, you could also pay a visit to the Houston Space Center. It's not
close to the airport, but a chance to see real space shuttles and astronaut
suits make for a unique experience that only Houston can provide.
