On December 6th 2007, the second Yotel in the UK will open its doors for business at London's Heathrow Airport. Travelers will be able to experience the revolutionary hotel concept by booking time in one of the 32 innovative cabins available in the airport for travelers stranded by delays or trapped on long layovers.

The first Yotel opened in the UK at Gatwick Airport earlier in the year and the man behind the concept is the same man who founded Yo! Sushi. Simon Woodroffe designed the Yotel to be a flexible and convenient first-class experience for travelers. Unlike many airport hotels, the Yotel is designed to provide comfort on the airport grounds for an affordable price.

Yotel rooms not only offer a place to shower and sleep, they also come equipped with everything a business traveler might require from wireless internet access, to a workstation to a complete entertainment system and iPod jack.

CEO Gerard Greene said, "Following the exceptional success of our Gatwick opening with phenomenal occupancy levels, YOTEL Heathrow will offer more passengers the chance to experience a little bit of luxury and relaxation right inside the worlds busiest airport. We continue to expand globally with Schiphol opening in early 08 and other exciting destinations around the globe to be announced. At last some respite for weary passengers. Enjoy!"

There are two types of room available at both the Gatwick and Heathrow Yotels. Both the 'Standard, large single' and the 'Premium' double rooms have en suite bathrooms, entertainment systems and access to 24 hour a day room service. The Standard cabin is available from £25 for four hours or £56 overnight and the Premium cabin is available for £40 for four hours or £82 overnight.
