(4 star hotel)
from the airport
It may not be tropical, but you'll feel safe leaving your car
Parking while you're away couldn't be easier if you've booked a stay at the Heathrow Sheraton Skyline; just leave your car at the hotel. The Skyline's car park has regular patrols, CCTV and a numberplate recognition system.
The Heathrow Hoppa runs from outside the hotel to the terminal. A single ticket costs £4, £7 for a return ticket, when bought online or at the machine in the hotel lobby or at the airport. Tickets can be bought from the driver for £4.50 or £9 return. Up to two children under the age of 15 years travel free when accompanied by a paying adult. The H3 Hoppa Bus runs to Heathrow terminals 1 and 3 and departs every 20 minutes at peak times. It operates from 4.40am until almost midnight. The H53 Hoppa Bus serves Heathrow terminals 4 and 5 and departs every 30 minutes from each terminal with the last bus departing at approximately 11:23 pm from terminal 4 and 11:34 from terminal 5. If you're in a rush, taxis are probably the fastest way to reach the airport. It costs around £10 for a black cab to Terminals 1 and 3, or £15 for Terminals 4 or 5.
A holiday in itself. From the indoor pool and stylish cocktail bar, to the palm trees and exotic plants, the Sheraton Skyline is a tropical paradise - the epitome of relaxation.
Check-in is from 14:00, so you'll have plenty of time to explore this luxurious retreat. From the minute you arrive, friendly and attentive staff make sure you're well taken care of. Overnight parking costs £15 and we can arrange this for you on the next page.
Nestled between palm trees and brightly coloured exotic plants is an indoor oasis, the hub of the hotel. Swim a few laps in the luxurious heated pool, then float over to the tropical Sky bar for a delicious, fruity cocktail. Laze on a comfy recliner or cross the wooden bridge to your own private island seating area. It's hard to believe you're less than 2 miles from check-in at Heathrow.
Time to eat? The Sports Bar & Grill provides a real American grill style atmosphere. From the sports memorabilia and the red Mustang, to the huge TV screens showing all of the latest sporting action, it's the ideal setting for an informal dinner. Tuck into a hearty steak, cooked just the way you like it or a towering burger bursting with fresh vegetables. There's not just meat on the menu - pasta dishes, salads and pizzas offer veggies some delicious alternatives. You can even save money when you pre-book two scrumptious dishes here; it gives you the perfect excuse to try a sweet treat as well. The Sports Bar & Grill serves dinner from 18:00 to 01:00 on weekdays and from 12:00 to 00:00 on weekends.
If you fancy some a little more exotic, head over to Madhu's for mouth-wateringly exquisite Indian cuisine. You'll find a tempting menu of Punjabi dishes with a zesty Kenyan twist. Each dish is painstakingly cooked to perfection on the grill by the brilliant chefs. From creamy tikkas to spicy biryanis, the authentic menu has plenty of delectable choices, served from 18:00 to 23:30 daily. Wherever your stomach leads you, we'd advise you book a table when you arrive. Both restaurants are so popular, even the locals eat there.
For a pre-holiday tipple before bed, head back to the Sky bar. At sunset it has a resort feel to it - lit up in bright colours, with the warmth of a sultry island. The barman energetically shakes and stirs all of your favourite holiday drinks, and serves them up with an umbrella and a juicy slice of fruit.
You can even burn off a few of those delicious dinner-time calories in the hotel's well-equipped studio gym. It's even open 24 hours a day, so you can stroll in as leisurely as you like.
And, if you need to stay connected to the outside world, wifi is free for guests throughout the hotel. There's even a Starbucks coffee shop for that caffeine fix.
You'll find even more luxury in your bedroom: a Sheraton Sweet Sleeper bed. Designed to relieve pressure points, it's probably the comfiest you'll find at Heathrow. Rooms are even soundproofed for an undisturbed night's sleep.
When you're back in the land of the living, you won't want to miss out on a hearty buffet breakfast. Pile up a plate of your favourite English and continental items. And, you'll save even more money when you pre-book the most important meal of the day. It's served from 06:00 to 10:00 on weekdays and until 11:00 on weekends.
Transferring to the airport couldn't be simpler. Jump on the Heathrow Hoppa bus from outside the hotel and it'll take you straight to your terminal.
