Take your space in the lower circle
The Holiday Inn Ariel at Heathrow has 90 on-site parking spaces. Once youve booked a space, simply drive into the car park (see our Directions tab) and choose any space; when you check in youll need to hand over your car keys and fill out a form with your vehicle details. At busy times of year there is a possibility that the car may be transferred to a secure off-site car park.
All parking spaces are located outdoors and the Ariels car park is monitored with hotel cameras.
Holiday Inn Ariel with parking at the hotel room-only procedures
On the day of your stay:
Make your way to the hotel - your confirmation will include directions and a postcode for sat navs. Overnight parking is included in the price.
Arriving by train? Hatton Cross and Hayes and Harlington train stations are the closest to the Ariel - both around a 10 minute drive away. A taxi will cost around £10.
Getting from the hotel to the airport:
There are 2 ways to get to the airport; the Heathrow Hoppa shuttle bus, or the free public bus.
T2 and T3: Buses 105, 111, 140 and 285 go to Heathrow Central bus station for free. The bus stop is across the road from the Holiday Inn Ariel, about 50m away. From the central bus station to Terminal 2 is a 7 minute walk. To Terminal 3 it’s an 8 minute walk.
T4: We’d recommend taking the Heathrow Hoppa shuttle bus (see below) or a taxi as the public bus route requires 2 changes.
T5: Take the public bus 423 from Harlington Corner (Stop J) - it’s 2 minutes across the road from the hotel. You’ll be dropped at Heathrow Terminal 5 bus stop and the main terminal entrance is a 4 minute walk away.
Heathrow Hoppa shuttle:
The Heathrow Hoppa bus runs from the hotel to the airport and back regularly during the airport's opening hours.
T2 and T3: You’ll need to get the bus H6. The first bus from Terminal 2 is at 04.42am and every 20-30 minutes until 11.34pm. From Terminal 3, the first bus is at 04.37am and every 20 minutes until 11:29pm.
T4 and T5: You’ll need the H56 bus. The first one from Terminal 4 is at 5am and every half an hour until 11.30pm. From Terminal 5 they go from 04.44am every 30 minutes until 11.14pm.
Tickets cost £4.50 per person one way and £8 return when bought in advance. They cost £5 for a single and £9 return if bought from the driver on the day. Up to 2 children under 15 can travel free with a paying adult.
To make life easier, we've automatically added Hoppa tickets to your basket - you'll see them on the next page. This adds an extra charge to your booking, however if you'd like to make other plans for your transfers, you can remove them by clicking the link underneath the text.
Catch the hoppa bus back to the hotel.
When you’re back at the hotel collect your car and drive home.
