Heathrow Heights

Just because a venue is located at an airport such as Heathrow, doesn’t mean it has to be Dullsville! Many hotels are catching on that guests want a home away from home feel during their stay – especially when surrounded by runways and roundabouts.


This in mind, Team F.C are big fans of the Hilton Heathrow T5. It’s a contemporary purpose-build hotel, injected with character and fun, and ideally located whether you need to be at the airport or simply as an outer-London alternative.


Cheryl and Ross stayed when the venue first opened and loved the bedrooms – all guest rooms and suites have triple-glazed windows (no wake-up calls from a Boeing!), blackout curtains, smart bathrooms and work areas including a media hub with Powerplay and 37-inch LCD TV’s. When you upgrade to a Suite or Executive room, then you gain access to the Executive Lounge for drinks, afternoon tea, evening cocktails and canapes!


If you’re a foodie, then you’re spoilt for choice with 6 (yes 6!) dining options, including the award-winning Mr Todiwala’s Kitchen or the more chilled vibe of the River Bar.


However, if it’s a meeting you’re after, the 850sqm Ballroom accommodates up to 1,170 theatre style and up to 800 for a banquet, with oodles of adjacent space for exhibitions or drinks receptions. The break out area has full-length windows – perfect for plane spotters! For more intimate meetings, take your pick from a section of Executive boardrooms.


The hotel also provides a complimentary corporate shuttle to Stockley Park and Bedfont Lakes, as well as boasting a rather large outdoor car park!


Did we mention the spa? The Imagine Spa Thames Valley offers an extensive list of pampering treatments including facials and exfoliations, while the exclusive Thermal Suite features a salt grotto, aroma steam room, sauna, feature showers and an ice fountain, situated around the centerpiece of the hydrotherapy pool.
