Skytrax has recently announced the winners of its annual World Airport Awards. It may come as no surprise that Singapore Changi Airport came in first place for the fifth consecutive year. The airport is known around the world for its top-notch amenities and service, which make it a breeze for travelers to get in and out of the airport.
In addition to naming the world’s top airports, Skytrax ranked airport hotels by region. The five best airport hotels in North America are highlighted below:
