The question to OP is whether, in general, he arrives at his hotel any faster. My experience that the delay in taxiing to a holding stand (bus gate), waiting for air stairs, then waiting to disembark and be bused to the terminal, takes a good 45 minutes (for flights which are scheduled for a jetway arrival).

Thus, there is rarely a time-saving in this process.

As to US airports, they simply are not set up for this and use space more efficiently.
