Ever wonder where flight attendants stay on their layovers? A lot of factors go into this decision, when the airline choose the hotels including price, and if the hotel provides transportation to/from the airport, of if they have to arrange their own.
Generally speaking, most airlines will have multiple hotels in a city that they can put their crews up. Some break it down on arrival time, so all crews arriving in the morning stay at X hotel, and those arriving in the evening at Z hotel. Often, it’s split up by how long the overnight is. If it’s a shorter overnight, they’re more likely to stay closer to the airport, and if it’s a longer one, then you’ll probably find the crew at a downtown location.
Below are some examples of where flight attendants stay in different cities:
In Las Vegas, American Airlines stays at the SLS Las Vegas.
In New York City, Delta stays at the Roosevelt Hotel.
In New York City, Emirates stays at the Sheraton New York Times Square.
In Boston, Southwest Airlines stays at the Renaissance Boston Waterfront.
In Los Angeles, Delta stays at the Westin Bonaventure.
In San Juan, JetBlue Airways stays at the Sheraton Puerto Rico Hotel & Casino.
As you can see, flight attendants can stay at some nice hotels on their layovers. When it comes to earning hotel points, and stay credit, it can be hit or miss. Most of the time, their discounted rates aren’t eligible but at some hotels the points will post, and elite members will even receive lounge access.
