Where to Stay Near Busy Istanbul Airport?

Next October (2020) we will be flying into Istanbul airport (IST) from elsewhere in Turkey in the afternoon after being on a tour for two weeks. Our flight home (to California) is the next morning at 8:20 AM. I was expecting to find all sorts of hotels near the airport to use points on, like Marriott or Hilton, since that's what we typically do on our final night on vacation when we have an early morning flight. I'm not having much luck. Can anyone recommend a nice place to stay near the airport, which I'm reading is expected to be the World's busiest airport? We will already have stayed in Istanbul for four nights at the start of the trip, so I'm not sure we need to stay in the city center again, since its a long drive from the airport.

The new airport is in the middle of nowhere a long way from Istanbul. You'd better stay at the airport hotel, but I'd rather take a morning flight, spend the last day in Istanbul and go to the airport hotel only after dinner.

There's a Radisson Park Inn near the airport, 3 Yotels inside the airport and several non-chain hotels in the vicinity according to Google maps, click on "hotels."

Thanks! YOTEL it is!

Thanks all for the YOTEL recommendation. My husband and I think it sounds like something fun to try once, and it's really convenient. We can drop our bags, and either explore the airport or go back into the city for last-minute souvenirs or a final dinner. Best of all, we became YOTEL members and got the "Cyber Monday" rate!
