to the airport
Fantastic for families, handy for the transfers
If youre heading off for a fun holiday with the family and you need an overnight Heathrow hotel to make getting to the airport in time that bit easier in the morning, the Park Inn at Heathrow Airport could be the one for you. Posh hotels are lovely, but theyre not always designed with kids in mind, and especially if you have a young family, you might not feel like theyre exactly rolling out the red carpet for you. If you want a hotel you and your kids can relax in, with transfers to the airport taking just a few minutes, you cant go wrong with the Park Inn Hotel at Heathrow.
So much to offer the kids
Get your holiday started a day early by giving kids the thrill of an extra night in a hotel. This one has a full size pool an unusual feature amongst Heathrow hotels, two family-friendly restaurants, childrens play areas (under eights eat free), childrens fun packs and all sorts of little features which will make you feel welcomed while keeping them entertained.
Hotel (and reception staff) were overwhelmed and I had to wait in total 4 hrs -until 9 pm - for access to my room. Admittedly various freebie compensations were offered, incl (limited) restaurant menu and then drinks, for the second part of the wait. Parking had to be on a double yellow line..... but many other cars were already parked similarly! I was assured at reception that this did not matter! That said, the location was as good as it gets and the transfer to airport next day likewise.Mr Born (Park Inn)

Quick and easy transfers
The Park Inn Heathrow hotel is one of the closest for direct access to Heathrow terminals 1 and 3, and transfers via Heathrow Hoppa bus to any of the terminals takes just minutes. Theres also a free bus you can catch, and parking on site for more than 600 cars. It couldnt be easier.
One of the big bonuses from a stay at the Park Inn Heathrow Hotel is the additional facilities you can take advantage of for free during your stay. The main one is the large indoor heated swimming pool which the kids are bound to love, or where you can soak off the work stresses with a few lengths before taking a turn in the Jacuzzi. Alternatively there is a gym with cardio equipment, weights and resistance work-out machines, and the fitness centre also has a sauna and whirlpool you can use. There are large changing rooms, including private change and showers, plus lockers to store your belongings. All these amenities are free to guests. There are also some small treatment rooms from which they run the Ki Spa where you can choose from a range of relaxing treatments including facials or massages to ease into your holiday feeling completely soothed. Very few hotels around Heathrow enjoy a pool of this size where the kids can really let off steam, so a stay at the Park Inn comes with true family appeal. The fitness centre is open from 6.30 am until 8.00pm and from 8.00am to 8.00pm weekends.
We recommend the Park Inn Heathrow hotel for:
Family stays - With 121 family rooms available for two adults and two children, or suites, plus cots and all the little extras that the kids will love, this is the perfect family-friendly hotel.
Parking - There is on-site parking for 650 cars, and transfers are simple and cheap via the Heathrow Hoppa that takes just a few minutes to take you straight to the terminal doors.
Value - This is one of the best value hotels on the Heathrow strip. If budget is a factor, the Park Inn will pay dividends.
Pool - Keeping the kids entertained in an enclosed hotel space is always a challenge. Let them burn off some energy in the full-size heated indoor swimming pool.
Food and drink - For family dining you cant get better value or more relaxed than this, but couples wont feel out of place. Theres something for everyone here.
