Worldwide airfield directory
The biggest international airport, small farm fields in the jungle of Brazil, the police heliport of Los Angeles, or a new air base in the middle of the desert. Find them all in this Worldwide Airfield Directory. Over 40.000 locations at the moment. This is a work in progress, so the numbers below will change on a daily basis.

Last updated spotting hotels
Hof von Hannover @ Wittmundhafen (ETNT)
Hotel description: Ok hotel from a price and quality perspective. Cheap, good breakfast. Please note the check in times, otherwise reception is closed.
Spotting opportunities: Close to the Airfield, just 3 miles on the same road.
Embassy Suites by Hilton Portland Maine @ Portland International Jetport (PWM/KPWM)
Hotel description: High end hotel right at the airport.
Spotting opportunities: Rooms on the eastside have a view on the general aviation platforms, as well as the departures/arrivals on runway 18.
Madrid Marriott Auditorium @ Madrid-Barajas Airport (MAD/LEMD)
Hotel description: Good quality hotel and conference center, just south of Madrid airport. Free shuttle busses every half hour between all terminals and the hotel.
Spotting opportunities: Rooms facing the airport have a decent view of the airport, though good binoculars are needed to read most traffic. Taking pictures is all but impossible due to windows that cannot open and the distance.
Room information: Rooms on 2nd and 3rd floor facing the airport
Aviotel @ Marina di Campo Airport (EBA/LIRJ)
Hotel description: [no description given]
Spotting opportunities: Hotel is right at the airport, next to the tiny terminal building. The pool is just a few meters from the runway!
Oryx Rotana @ Doha International Airport (DOH/OTBD)
Hotel description: 5 star hotel with a pool, restaurants and bar. Located right next to the runway of the old airport.
Spotting opportunities: From the hotel rooms, you will have a good view on the northern part of the airport, including the Qatar helicopters. When landing from the north, you can easily spot anything from the pool or rooms. The rooms on top of the entrance facing the outside are preferable. There are even more expensive rooms with a balcony, which are top locations to view the movements. When aircraft take of to the north, they fly already pretty high when passing the hotel, especially the jets.
Room information: all rooms on the outside above the entrance
Thon Hotel Høyers @ Skien-Geiteryggen Airport (SKE/ENSN)
Hotel description: In the heart of Skien, just 5 kilometers from Geiteryggen Airport.
Spotting opportunities: No spotting opportunities from the hotel, sadly.
