April 2013 - I have stayed here overnight three times over the past two years. If you get there early and are stuck behind security, there is one cushioned bench close to the parking garage bridge. Of course, others may beat you to it. If you want a place to use electronics, the baggage claims are a good place to go. The short walls have benches with nearby power outlets behind them. You can get through security at midnight the day of your flight. The fabled couches of the Kidsport in Concourse C are no more. In their place are two benches with armrests. However, with a little strength you can push the benches to face each other. You can then flip one toward the other, with the armrests aligned, to provide a flat and semi-cushioned surface. Be sure to rearrange them when you leave. The area is relatively private until morning and there are bathrooms nearby. Mister Rogers Neighborhood plays constantly, but unfortunately repeats the same episode all night long. The Southwest gates in Concourse A are another option for relaxing. They have relatively comfortable black chairs with power outlets and USB charging ports.
