More often than not, when I have a flight leaving Heathrow before 8am, I tend to stay at the airport. A tried and tested favourite for me is the Hilton Garden Inn, mainly due to the fact that its within walking distance of Hatton Cross Tube station (therefore avoiding the need to use the rip off Hotel Hoppa buses), its generally one of the cheaper priced hotels at the airport and it all counts towards my Hhonors status.
I had checked in online once ore for this stay, and unlike my previous experience of using this feature in Paris, it worked a little better. There was still some paperwork to complete on arrival, but at least this time I actually got the rood I’d selected.
As I’d selected a corner room, the layout was a little different to the standard. It still featured all the usual furniture however but overall I’d say the floor space was a little less than normal.
Again, the bathroom was smaller than the standard – as evidenced by the fact there wasn’t a bath, but a large shower.
The usual Hilton bathroom amenities were present, as well as tea/coffee making facilities. There was also a fridge in place of a minibar. HGI’s concept is that they have an on site pantry, and you buy things from there instead – and stock your own fridge.
As mentioned, I’ve stayed here quite a few times over the years – so it can’t be too bad! Having said that, every time I have stayed here, it has been a reasonable price. I have rooms go for well over £100/night before and to be honest I’m not sure I’d pay that price for it. Anything under and its fine however.
