What's the coolest/your favorite feature in an airport?

I love the manicure stations at some airports and think the DVD rentals come in such handy when stuck waiting for hours.

What is your favorite airport feature, be it a store, service, restaurant, etc? And what airport is it at?

A few that spring to mind...

-In N Out Burger besides LAX. Not considered airport property but it is right beside the airport. Good burgers, great viewing.

-Buena Vista Cafe in SFO Terminal 3. Famous Irish coffees, delicious!

-Sam Adams Brewhouses at numerous US airports. Somewhere to get a decent beer.

-Five Guys Burgers at IAD

-CDG Terminal 1. So ridiculously bad it is hilarious.

-The passsenger bridge at Gatwick North terminal that the aircraft taxi under. Same at Denver.

Am sure there are a few others...

Most of mine though are slightly different things that relate to the airline lounges; excellent restaurant and staff at Qantas First lounge at SYD plus the walls with plants growing in them, free massages in BA's lounges at Heathrow, S Class transfer from private terminal to aircraft when flying Lufthansa First Class from Frankfurt etc.

The sounds piped in as you walk down the international arrivals hall in CNS.

The bronze figures in the floor of SEA.

The heritage, science displays, and large bronze sculpture of horses at YYC

The women at SLC (voted most "scenic" US airport).

and yes, the walkway bridge at LGW.

The First Nations art at YVR is a nice touch in the International terminal bulding. http://www.yvr.ca/guide/todo/art/index.asp for a look at what's available. The Spirit of Haida Gwaii is really a massive piece, hard to miss.

Other than that it's airline lounges that please me.

I love the "UK Border" at Stansted. Nothing beats arriving at midnight and being squashed for an hour while waitig to show your passport!

CPH comes to my mind and its perfect comfortable sleeper chairs

in the central terminal, called the quiet zone, with a perfect view to the apron and the activity outside.
