With extreme convenience comes a price

I hosted a one-day business meeting at this hotel, and my group stayed at the Sofitel. Very competent staff, very nice meeting facilities. Responsive and capable to our event needs (for 20+ people). The sleeping rooms are quiet - you can just barely hear the jets taking off, despite being quite nearby. I found a very hard to decipher lighting system in the room. The free wifi seemed quite slow for general Web & email use. I didn't try the non-free premium wifi. Toiletries were 3-star. The rest of the room (a single queen) was very nicely appointed, though quite snug. Bedding and towels were good. Tea service (electric kettle) and freeze dried coffee. A 24-hour gym, which unfortunately I was too tired to visit. On-site restaurants were very good, and the breakfast (included with some room rates) got rave reviews by my meeting guests. Overall, a very pleasant stay. The cost was high compared to other hotels in the airport area, though none are as convenient as the Sofitel for Terminal 5, with a walkway from the terminal to the hotel. The Sofitel labels itself as a luxury hotel, which is a bit of a reach. The rooms were very nice, though not very large. I didn't encounter anything that I would call luxury (compared to, say, a 5-star luxury resort), though certainly this is a 4-star facility, or even 4+.

There is a little grocery store in the terminal just before you get to the hotel. Stock up on juice, snacks, etc.

London Stop over

Staff were very helpful and courteous. The rooms were exquisite in design/decor and immaculately clean. The bed was very comfortable and my nights peaceful. Internet speed and access by wifi was fair. The breakfast menu had ample options.

if only the food...

I have been at Sofitel twice so far. I will keep going back. The location is perfect for a next day flight. The rooms are comfortable, check in is quick. The food (room service) however was expensive and greasy. So I suggest for anyone to hop on the train (right under the hotel) to downtown for dinner.

Amazing property when in transit.

Perfect location and extremely comfortable large room. Was in transit and was perfect. Room was clean, large and quiet. Easy access from and to terminal via Heathrow express which was free. I did not have time to go to central London but if I had was easily accessible via express. Would definitely recommend and stay again.
