If you can book early and get a good rate it is worth paying a little more and staying at the T5 Sofitel. Rooms are excellent and the ability to go straight into the terminal is a major plus point.
The 'cheaper' restaurant has OK food and that's all one can say really.
It does help take the real pain out of early morning flights from T5

Stayed here for 2 nights on Business and must say I was impressed with this place.

Check in was smooth and the staff very helpful when required (gym access etc.)

The room was of a good size, the bed was big and also comfortable which is a plus.

There are a number of different themed restaurants within the hotel and the food was amazing - I would fully recommend the Peri Peri chicken from the restaurant close to the check in!

The only real fault I could pick if I was to have one is that the Gym Facilities are very very small and cramped, That would be one thing they could possibly address in the future, However if you want a treadmill or basic dumbells then it has you covered

Would stay again and probably one of the best Airport hotels I have stayed in anyways

We stayed in London for 2 days prior to flying to Lisbon for a cruise.

We decided to stay at Heathrow Sofitel since we had an early Sunday flight out.

The hotel has a direct express stop to downtown and made it easy to pop downtown for the day of sightseeing and return in the evening. That way we didn't have to leave a downtown hotel early early AM on Sunday to catch a 7AM flight!

Very convenient and economical for a wonderful hotel!

We stayed here for one night when flying from Heathrow. It couldn't have been any more convenient for the airport. It's such a good hotel in general though. Another hotel too good for an airport! Rooms are extremely comfortable, good room service and nice L'Occitane products in the bathroom. We had a really good night's sleep. Amazing breakfast with lots of fresh bread. We were really impressed and would definitely stay here again.

A convenient hotel, specifically for business, with its location at the airport with rail connection to London. Very nice room, comfortable beds, with all standards expected for working. But the key difference is the great service from check in to check out, and very good restaurant. All this come at a price on the high end, but in that case justified.
