The Dubai International Hotel, located at Terminal 3 inside Dubai International Airport (DXB), is offering those with early flights a new option to help make traveling a little bit easier. The hotel’s new “Wake Up at the Gate” package lets travelers, including families of up to four, check into the airport and clear security the night before an early departure, which means waking up and going straight to the gate in the morning.

The package offers a range of options for the stay. A search of available dates shows the lowest rate for a solo traveler starting at AED 290 ($79 USD) including taxes and fees for up to 12 hours in a Deluxe Room, which includes complimentary use of the health club where you’ll find a gym, relaxation pool, jacuzzi and showers. For a family of four, the lowest rate we found was AED 480 ($131 USD) including all of taxes and fees for the 12-hour deluxe room, or, you have the option to splurge for the Premium Full-Board room at AED 1170 ($319 USD), which gets you up to 24 hours in an Executive room, health club access, and a 25-minute Timeless Spa treatment for up to two adults.

When it’s time to head out, hotel staff escorts guests directly to their gate with plenty of time to catch their flight. The staff will even pack a bag of healthy snacks for children.

The hotel terms & conditions state that passengers must be checked into a flight to access the hotel. If you’re checking luggage, the hotel recommends carrying any change of clothes or toiletries needed in a separate carry-on.

If you want to take advantage of the package, head over to the hotel’s promotion page and simply click the “Wake Up At the Gate” graphic to get started with your reservation.
