SIOUX FALLS (AP) — Sioux Falls Regional Airport is planning to add its first onsite hotel rooms to cater to the out-of-town traveler looking to catch a good night's rest before an early flight.

Airport Executive Director Dan Letellier says the four-story hotel will offer 74 efficiency rooms that are smaller than normal featuring queen-size beds, flat-screen TVs and fold-down work stations.

The airport authority board approved a 30-year lease for the hotel. It will be built and run by U.S. Hotel & Resort Management, which manages Ramkota and ClubHouse Suites properties. The company will pay the airport 8 percent of hotel revenue as rent.

Construction will begin in June on the site north of the terminal where an employee parking lot and a cargo now stand. Opening is planned for early 2015.
