    Travelers at Dulles International Airport will soon be able to take naps or even stay overnight inside... boxes.

    Sleepbox says its app allows customers to book the room, unlock it and control all of its features for an "on-demand hospitality experience."

    "Finally, travelers encountering delays and long layovers will now have a private oasis in the middle of the rush," the company said in a release.

    The lounge is set to open this month and Dulles will be the first airport to have Sleepboxes.

    Photos of the tiny rooms show a small bed with a mirror and nightstand beside it.

    Standard room rates are $40 for the first hour and $30 per additional hour. Rates are capped at $150 for 12-hour periods. Compact room rates are $30 for the first hour, $20 per additional hour and $120 for 12-hour periods.

    The lounge is staffed 24/7 with a concierge and maintenance team.
