Gate C17 - This airport was the best sleeping experience at an airport ever. I should stay at airports like this instead of hotels. - Craig Apple Pie
"I think I found the spot. Somewhere in between gates C-15 and C-17 (I'm not quite sure which) there is a shoe shine station, and then right around the side of it, by the window, there is like a dark little cave. You have to sprawl out on the floor but it's so perfect for sleeping as long as you have a blanket or something to keep you warm.
It's DARK and quiet and there doesn't appear to be any reason for someone to come by and bother you. Although, there is a door, and I'm not sure where it leads but it looks it just drops right off outside so not sure what it's used for.
Unfortunately for me though it was too early to check in so I had to spend the night in the crappy ticketing area, bright lights and hard cold floors, the usual. After spending an hour or so just sitting in a chair I got up to wander around and found what was probably the only little patch of carpet - right near the entrance/exit. There were some seats and a little corner that was just off to the side of the doors where I wouldn't be in the way of anything. I decided to call it a night there. I quickly discovered that St. Louis has these rather large bugs that come back to life after you kill them, no joke! They were so creepy. The only other thing preventing me from getting some sleep was the airport staff. This one woman came over talking loudly on her phone, and she went outside so that was fine.. except she stood RIGHT in front of the doors the whole time causing them to keep opening and closing. And every time they opened I could hear her chatting away. So annoying.
So yeah, spending the night here could either be pretty good or pretty bad, depending on where you get stuck."
