Best way from Heathrow to St. Ermin's Hotel

We will be arriving around 11:00 PM at Heathrow. What is the best way at that time of night to get to St. Ermin's Hotel in London?

Thank you.

If you are booked on the AA flight that is scheduled to arrive from ORD at about 2230 then you have two choices: take the Underground from the airport to St James's Park station or book a car service for the journey.

The Underground trip will involve an easy cross platform change at Hammersmith, it will take 10 seconds. You will have stairs to climb at St James's Park station, about 30 in all, and a short walk to the hotel. If you would like to avoid stairs you may take the Piccadilly line to Green Park, where there are escalators up to the ticket hall and a lift up to street level. A taxi from Green Park station to your hotel will cost about £10.

A prebooked car service will cost about £30 - 40. Travel time may be about the same as on the Underground, about 40 minutes. Some rated car services include www.blackberrycars.com www.justairports.com www.expressways.co.uk and www.swisscottagecars.com

Thank you for your reply.

Are taxis available at that time of night from Heathrow? What might they cost?

Is travel by tube and then walking to hotel safe in that area at that time of night?

You're welcome.

Black cabs will be at the ranks at all Heathrow terminal buildings and available for travel to central London. Fare after 2200 could be about £45 - 60. The Underground will be quite safe later in the evening, and the walk from St Jame's Park station to your hotel will be through quiet-ish roads but not unsafe - New Scotland Yard is nearby, in any event. If you choose to alight at Green Park and take a taxi from there you should have little trouble hailing a cab in that busy stretch of road.

Are taxis readily available at night since we arrive at 10:45 and need to go thru customs and immigration?

===================

Yes. If you want to pay more if you hop in a cab from the rank.

If you're prepared to pre-book a car service, that will be less than a black cab from the rank.
