As convenient as it gets

Since, with the Sofitel at Heathrow airport, you're staying at a hotel that can't get any better, you may as well have the most convenient parking while you're at it. Park your car right under the hotel, catch a lift straight up to reception to check in, then find your car right where you left it when you get back; all within walking distance of the terminal.

The parking is out of the way underneath the hotel and the spaces are covered by CCTV cameras to make sure your car is safe while you're away. If you're looking to have the most stress-free holiday possible, this is where you want to leave your car.

If you're delayed in returning from holiday, the hotel will charge you a £15 per extra night for parking, which is the standard rate. Make sure to stop in at reception before you leave so they can validate your ticket and you can get back out through the barrier.
