RDU Airport Hotel Gives Travelers a Reason to See the Soaring New Design at Terminal 1

The Fairfield Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport/RTP's New Package Complements RDU's Renovation

MORRISVILLE, NC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/20/14 -- Airports may have started out a means for shuttling people to and from airplanes, but many have evolved way past that. From incorporating restaurants travelers actually want to try, to inspiring people with modern design and artworks, airports are becoming destinations unto themselves. And the latest one to join those ranks is the Raleigh-Durham International Airport, whose stunning new renovation is perhaps best experienced in conjunction with the Park Here, Fly There package at the Fairfield Inn & Suites Raleigh-Durham Airport/RTP.

Frequent travelers to Raleigh-Durham Airport hotels will be surprised not by the airport's renovations, per se, but by the fact that construction has finally stopped after more than 15 years of major construction projects. The most recent completion, however, is Terminal 1. Shedding its dated blue color scheme, the revamped travel space is now awash in natural light and translucent and silver wall panels that better reflect the airy aesthetic. Eleven new shops and restaurants currently inhabit the terminal, including the first restaurant to be licensed by the Atlantic Coast Conference, the ACC American Café.

Travelers on Southwest Airlines and AirTran have been experiencing the modern splendors of Terminal 1 since its opening last month. But the Park Here, Fly There -- Raleigh-Durham Airport package is doing its part to expand the new terminal's fan base. Available through December 31, 2014, the package offers free parking for up to 30 days (for one car) with shuttle service to and from the airport.

Travelers who need to catch an early flight but live over an hour away, or those who need a place to spend the night after a late flight home won't find a more convenient offer among hotel deals in Morrisville. Nor will they find more appealing accommodations. Package rates start at just $89 per night, and guests can look forward to some of the most restful rooms and suites available among hotels in Morrisville, NC. Cotton-rich bedding, award-winning service and free, high-speed Internet access ensure visitors feel right at home no matter how long they stay. And the complimentary breakfast in the morning provides a healthy start to a day of travel. Additional amenities like the indoor pool and fitness center also distinguish the property from other hotels near UNC Chapel Hill.

To take advantage of the Park Here, Fly There package -- and to see what all the fuss is about at Terminal 1 -- travelers should use the promotional code PKF when making reservations. But between the hotel's coziness and the airport's chic design, travelers may not be in any hurry to take off.
