We recently stayed in London at the beginning of our tour of Europe. I decided to stay at the Hilton at Heathrow Terminal 5 because we had a morning flight out of Heathrow to Belgium and I figured having to travel from the center of London to LHR would take too long... Well we took the tube to Heathrow and then had to figure out how to get to the hotel, well, that's another story... the Hotel isn't a mile from the airport unless it's a mile as a crow could fly, and there is not a free shuttle. It was a min 10 minute drive and we had to pay 9 British Pounds each just for a transfer each way to/from the airport! To me that was just not right. After we finally made it to the hotel and got checked in our room was very very nice, well appointed and comfortable. There was a lot of loud music and apparently they had a wedding reception on site and luckily that died down early enough. The breakfast in the morning was quite good, but then we had to arrange to get on a shuttle in enough time to get back to the terminal and get all checked in for our flight so we were literally there for less than 12 hours. I'm still not pleased with this hotel not offering a free shuttle to/from the airport and there is no way I should have had to pay that much money for a shuttle bus. Next time I will just stay in town and take the tube and save myself a lot of cash!
