We had a 7am flight from Delhi to London. Thinking we couldn't check in until six hours in advance, we booked a six hour block. We arrived at 8pm and (after some confusion amongst the door security) were allowed to proceed to the visitors lounge, where a hotel staff member escorted us through security screening and into the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable, and overlooked the terminal, which was pretty cool. The shower was amazing after 18 days of mixed experiences. The lounge was warm and welcoming. We still had to check in with BA in the morning and go through regular security, but it was so nice to just roll out of bed and into the terminal. It wasn't the easiest hotel to book because it is hard to figure out if you "qualify" to stay and in which side (domestic/international). Also when you call, they tell you to book via email. Regardless, having a hotel inside the terminal is a wonderful idea and I hope more airports embrace the concept.
