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.
The Hoppa runs from 4am to midnight.
Bus times depend on your hotel and the terminal you're flying from. More information on these will be in your booking confirmation, or you can ask the hotel when you arrive. Journey times vary depending on your hotel – it can take between 15-35 minutes between terminals 2, 3 and 4. To terminal 5, it can take 30-50 minutes.
The Hoppa costs £6 per person one way or £11 per person return.
To make things 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, but if you'd like to make other plans, you can remove them by clicking the link underneath.
Catch the hoppa bus back to the hotel.
When you're back at the hotel collect your car and drive home.
