What you see is what you get at the Holiday Inn
Theres no mistaking the Holiday Inn Ariel when you arrive at Heathrow - its unique, circular structure certainly stands out from the other more traditional-style Heathrow hotels. And you definitely wont be disappointed when you step inside. Its reception and shared areas are crisp and uncomplicated, but at the same time feel warm and inviting. The hotels bedrooms are much the same; bright, comfortable and equipped with everything thats needed to get a good nights sleep. With double glazed windows and blackout curtains, its easy to overlook the fact that youre at an airport and the squashy beds with choose-your-own pillows are bound to help you forget that the world exists for a few hours.
Avid planespotters should request a south-facing room when they make their booking they overlook the airstrip and offer a grandstand view of the takeoffs. That also means that anyone whos looking for a hotel close to the airport will be well catered for too: the Holiday Inn Ariel is less than two miles to the nearest terminal.

We recommend the Holiday Inn Ariel for:
Peace and Quiet - Despite being so close to the airport, the Ariel is well soundproofed and we enjoyed a quiet nights sleep.
An elegant stay - Rooms are spacious and comfortable, and we loved the lightwell at the centre of the unusual ring-shaped building that lets in natural light at all times of day.
A quick ride to the airport - A bus or taxi takes only 10 minutes to terminals 1 and 3.
Check-in is from 2pm; the latest checkout is noon unless otherwise arranged.
