Kempinski Hotel Airport Munich
Location: Munich, Germany
For the past 20 years, the Kempinski Hotel Airport Munich has been defying travelers' expectations of what an airport hotel should be. Or look like. The hotel's gorgeous glass atrium is stocked with tropical plants, as is the glass-enclosed pool and sauna in the hotel's fit and fly Spa area.
Why It Stands Out: The hotel's ready-to-please staff will do whatever it can to make your stay stress-free, including taking you directly to your airport check-in counter. Just because it's a short drive doesn't mean you won't do it in style; the hotel's house ride is a BMW 7 Series.
