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

Airport Overview

To help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, we are here to give you the low-down on what travellers have reported back to us during their time at Lambert-St Louis International Airport.

What to Expect

  • A large international airport, consisting of two terminals (Terminals 1 and 2) and three concourses (Concourses A, C and E)
  • After airport restaurants and shops close for the night, vending machines are the only in-airport snack option. Plan ahead and purchase your food and drinks before the concessions close.
  • The airport provides WiFi for a fee. See WiFi information in the airport guide below.

Where to Sleep

  • After security checkpoints close for the night, passengers are restricted to landside only. Passengers sleeping airside will be required to go back to landside until security reopens, and will need to clear security again to re-enter.
  • Concourse C is preferred for being darker and somewhat quieter than the other concourses. Check out the area next to the shoeshine station near Gate C16 for a nice little sleep nook!
  • Gate A2 has some benches behind a wall, perfect for stretching out!
  • The Starbucks in Concourse A has oversized chairs available
  • Due to the uncomfortable and limited seating available in the landside areas, you will most likely have to sleep on the floor if you sleep landside. Have a travel mattress and blanket handy for a little comfort against the cold and hard floors!
  • For uninterrupted sleep, there are hotels near the airport that provide free airport shuttles. See Airport Hotels in the airport guide below.

Good to Know

  • Economy class passengers can find comfort in one of the lounges that are accessible with a day pass or Admirals Club membership. See our Airport Lounges section for locations and rates.
