Eaton checks in as India’s 1st hotel inside an airport

In line with the international trend of transit hotels within airports, the Delhi International Airport has opened its doors to UK-based Eaton Smart Hotel. Eaton has just started operations at Terminal 3 of the Delhi airport. Cities that have transit hotels within airports include Dubai, London, Singapore and Amsterdam.

Eaton, the 93-room property, is being managed by the Langham Hospitality group and has been developed by Wadhwa Developers. "Being inside an airport terminal gives us little architectural control over the property from the outside. But we have tried to make it as close to what Eaton Smart internationally is," said Raju Shahani, Executive Consultant (development and operations), India and Sri Lanka, Langham Hospitality.
