Luxe sleeping pods at Heathrow

Long layover? Cancelled flight? Just love Heathrow so much you want to spend a little extra time there? Well then, you're in luck. On December 6, the burgeoning Euro-modular hotel empire Yotel will open its Heathrow location.

Rooms can be rented for as little as four hours, and include a bed big enough for two, a bathroom with a shower, a work desk, and flat-screen TV. There's also room service and free Internet access. Sure beats sprawling out across two seats at the gate. Rates start at £25 for four hours.
