Hot shower, comfy beds and a great breakfast. What more could you ask for after 36 hrs on a plane

Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Hotel London-Heathrow West Drayton
Stayed here for one night before travelling to the USA and left the car for the duration of the holiday. Staff were excellent, picking up our luggage directly we pulled up. Room was great, comfortable (especially the beds), clean and welcoming. It was great to use the internet to pre-book seats on our flight that morning from our room. The health club was really good, with warm towels given to you as you sign in, the pool was a good size and there was plenty of people enjoying the facilities. The restaurant and pub were great, the only down side being the high prices, but that is to be expected. We were so impressed that we will probably stay here again when travelling from Heathrow in the future.
Excellent in all respects...
This is the most comfortable, attractive and efficient hotel near an airport that I have ever encountered, anywhere. It is far enough from the airport to be well away from airport traffic, commotion and noise, but close enough to be 10 minutes from car-rental return locations. From the outside, the hotel seems like an unexceptional airport-area hotel, but inside the quality of management, design and maintenance translates into a delightful experience. Rooms on the Club level are especially plush and convenient for business travelers, bathrooms sparkle and have appealing amenities, and room service in the morning was precisely on time. Aesthetics everywhere are bright and colorful, and in very good taste. Even more astonishing is Simply Nico, the hotel's restaurant, which was terrific, with flawless service and perfectly prepared food. This hotel is so far ahead of its Heathrow competitors, don't even bother to consider them...
Stayed here for 1 nite only prior to our return flight to Canada. Booked online through BA Holidays. Check in was a snap, our room was great, quiet, clean and comfortable. Dr. O'Driscolls pub was great for a few pints and some dinner, and the wait staff were extremely friendly. Full English breakfast was included in the room, and their was a large selection to choose from. Would definitely stay again. Only complaint was that the Hotel Shuttle does not go to Terminal 4 at Heathrow, so took a taxi. I think the hotel just called a friend with a van to take us as there was no taxi sign or meter in the vehicle. Charged 22 pounds to drive us to terminal 4 which seemed very expensive.
Is Club Floor is worth it? Yes!
On a few occasions, I have been upgraded to the club floor.
By doing so, I have gone from a very nice hotel to a fantastic hotel as the club rooms really are rather nice. In addition you get full access to the club lounge where drinks, newspapers and nibbles help you pass the time in a very chilled out way.
Excellent, Quiet Airport Hotel!
We got this hotel on Orbitz for about $100 a night, good for London (will be less when the dollar gets better). This was actually one of the cheapest hotels at Heathrow even though it's one of the nicest!
Super nice place with large rooms, sauna, hot tub, steam room, and pool downstairs. Although the bathroom is small, it's stylish and includes tub. Complimentary mineral water and biscuits in room. Very quiet, didn't hear planes or traffic at all (soundproof and far from road). Staff is very nice. Easy to get there on the Hoppa Shuttle from the airport for a few pounds.
Our only problem with this hotel was the quilt. On the beds, at least during fall and winter, is a down quilt that has the sheet attached to it, so you can't regulate your tempurature...you're either roasting with the quilt or freezing because you have to take the whole thing down, including the sheet. This might make sense in Scandinavia, but not in temperate London inside a room with heat available. This was easily remedied by turning the great A/C system to 19 degrees C, but it seems silly to waste energy. However, the staff is so nice that I'm sure they'd offer you another sheet or blanket if you asked. Definitely go this hotel if you have a connecting flight through Heathrow. Great deal and quality, especially with web deals sometimes available on travel search engines.
Great pre-flight indulgence
Lovely hotel. Room substantial size, room service excellent and quality of food. All the staff we met were helpful and friendly. We took a park and fly package and chose a very busy time as parking was limited. Would recommend this hotel and use it whenever we have an early flight from London Heathrow.
If you have a very early flight the first shuttle from the hotel is 5:30am.
Best Airport Hotel ever!
We used this airport hotel as an overnight after a long daytime flight from the USA.
Check in was quick and pleasant. Rooms are very large, clean and useful. The extra bright lights in the bathroom are great, although may produce a slight sunburn on fair skinned guests.
A major plus for this hotel is that its close to Heathrow but you can't hear the planes taking off or landing.
Only drawback is price but you know that going into any major city that prices will be expensive. Paid about 119GBP per night and breakfast was about 17.50 GBP per person.
Nice hotel, dis-organised reception staff
Found a very good deal on the internet and decided to start our holiday to new york with a bit of luxury - which we did. The rooms were the best i've had - large comfy beds, mini-bars, large bathrooms, robes, slippers, sofas, internet access etc, a good selection of bars and restaurants, good leisure centre. But the check-in was very disorganised. My mum and sister who had a seperate room arrived 2 hours before i arrived a 6pm to find them waiting in the bar. They were not able to check-in and were told to take a seat (no offer of a drink or anything in way of apology). I went straight to check-in and my room was ready. Asked about the other room and was told yes, send them up to collect key. They were again told the room was still not ready by another receptionist. After complaining, a room was found straight away. A good start. the best thing was that we found a completed guest questionnaire from an air crew member who stays quite often - the only complaint on there was about a disorganised front desk team who which never smiles!!! If we had a smooth check-in we would have given 5 stars - first impressions are everything.
I stayed here for one night in transit to the US. The hotel was excellent with a great fitness center. The club room was spacious and nicely decorated. The restaurant was very good and accomodating. I was able to use the club room for a meeting before my flight and the staff treated my guests as if they were staying at the hotel.
The only minor problem would be the bell staff who appeared to be either overworked or lazy. All in all, a 9.5 out of 10.
Great start to our Holiday
Decided to overnight here before a flight to USA.A modern clean hotel.Good size rooms comfortable beds air con coffee maker mini bar.Hotel has a couple of restaurants and a bar called Dr o'Driscolls.Friendly service and the usual hideous London Prices £10.95 burger and chips £3.50 pint of carling although a 4 pint jug for £9.00.Got a good deal for 1 night and 15 days parking because it was the weekend.Close to Airport and on the Hoppa route.Would I stay here again?Definately.

... only 5 miles from Windsor Castle. A bit of research on the web and the decision to visit, despite what initially seemed an astronomical price, was made. The laundry idea was put on the back burner.
After a nourishing Starbucks breakfast, it didn't take us long to get to Windsor. It did however take us nearly as long to find a parking area where we could leave the car for a few hours. Nevertheless we did eventually find one and we were soon standing at the entrance to a ...
... There are some cities which always go higher just because of the monopoly in the specific airport. You always have to keep your mind open. If you are hiring a car then extra driving can help you to save a lot and you can use the same money for the flight tickets. This can take place especially in the holiday period. Another important concern while travelling at the time of winter are layovers. The wrong weather always results into the travel delays ...
... t believe I hadn't gone there last time I was in London. We went on a Yeoman's tour and got to see the key sights. One of the highlights was the recently completed refurbishment of the royal chapel which houses the bodies of several 'high profile' occupants of the Tower - Anne Boleyn and Kathryn Howard for example. The chapel is being officially reopened by HRH the Queen in a couple of weeks - so it's pretty neat that we've been able ...
... Mews where all the coaches and Queen's Rolls were on display. The tour continued through the stables where some of the horses were in their stalls. Next part of the tour was the staterooms inside Buckingham Palace. All the rooms were beautiful. We were able to see the throne room, the music room where Prince George's christening was held and many other rooms where the Queen meets with important dignitaries from all parts of the ...
... near York dressing up as the various princesses and singing for kids parties, playing games etc. What is so bizarre about that (besides the obvious!) is that we had been talking to Katja yesterday about doing this very thing in Perth. This woman will be a great contact if Katja does choose to pursue this.
We are now in the Chunnel- I don't want to think about that too much!
Bye for ...
