Heathrow/Windsor Marriott Hotel

Raindrops hammered our AC Irla Hotel window from 4:30am onward, awakening us but not causing us to get out of bed. Knowing that there is to be a taxi strike this morning and being reasonably sure that Ricardo has secured for us a car service, we feel both anxiety and confidence.
At 7:00, I am up before the alarm. I shower without lights …
Hello from Houston! It’s especially funny that I find myself here today—not only because of the Texas drawl coming on over the loudspeaker warning us travelers about the dangers of security-related jokes—but also because I just finished (and re-started) a fantastic book about military test pilots-become-astronauts and how podunk, …
1. Koop bij aankomst in Londen een Oystercard*. Zet er 15 pond op - dan kom je de eerste twee dagen door. Dit geintje gaat je 6,50 pond per dag kosten namelijk. 2. Steek de volgende ochtend de drukke weg tegenover het hotel over - de bushalte is bijna voor de deur, lekker makkelijk. 3. Neem de bus en rijd gezellig een half uurtje door pittoreske …
Overnighted at the airport in Helsinki - I slept on a bench (although pretty plush by airport standards, but they don't dim the lights) and Bruce watched downloaded movies. The place was busy by 5 am. The morning beverage of choice by far seems to be Champagne (!) with some beer and wine for good measure to go with their shrimp cocktails and salmon ...
Took the tube and train out to Hampton Court Palace. Although this is one of the royal palaces, it is no longer used. The palace was originally bought and renovated by Cardinal Wolsey to attempt to build a palace for a cardinal as good as any in Rome. Later he was forced to "donate" it to Henry VIII. Henry lived here from about 1528 to 1546 and did additional renovations. Later William and Mary did substantial additional ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsHeathrow/Windsor Marriott Hotel Slough
I have stayed at all the Marriott flagged properties near Heathrow. This one is the best of the bunch, by far. The rooms are larger. The Executive Lounge is bigger, cleaner and, most importantly, run by cheerful and competent staff. The bar is big and friendly if a bit pricey. Skip the other Marriott properties at this airport and choose the Heathrow/Windsor Marriott Hotel.

Historical Traveler Reviews Heathrow/Windsor Marriott Hotel Slough
Reason for booking..........Wedding anniversary, weekend leisure break, to visit Windsor and surrounding area. Picked this hotel following a recent enjoyable stay at another Marriott.
We stayed here in July 2004. We were there for the weekend of my husbands 40th birthday, for Ascot races and to visit Windsor. We flew down from Manchester and got the Heathrow Hoppa to the hotel, think that was £3 per person, great value as would have cost lots more in a taxi. The hotel is very clean, friendly and helpful staff. Rooms are quite large and very clean. We didn't have a car but there is a bus stop just outside the hotel that goes to Windsor every half hour.
I stayed at this hotel for one night for a work conference. The hotel is very easy to find, right off J5 of the M4 motorway heading West out of London. The check in process was simple, although 10 minutes after I had checked in there was an impressive queue; presumably a coach load of people had just turned up.
We arrived at the hotel on Christmas day to stay the night before our flight to the US on Boxing day.
Excellent overnight stay
Would definitely recommend this hotel for an overnight stay before flying out of heathrow airport. Well located off the M4. Quiet spacious rooms with very comfortable beds. Could not fault it in any way. Excellent hoppa service from the hotel to the airport. Car was safe and sound whilst away. Good local faciilities within walking distance. You won't be disappointed.
I stayed for two nights here during a weekend in early December, 2004, and received a superb discount rate through the Marriott website for only 31.50 pounds per night, and that included the VAT, two excellent all-you-can-eat breakfast buffets, and free entry into the nice heated swimming pool and huge double-level health club. This was a rare promotion, so it may not be available except for the lowest season periods. The hotel is four-star luxury, professional staff, and we had a meal in the bar area that was OK. It also has a formal Italian restaurant, which we did not try. There is 24-hour room service, which was appreciated on our second morning when we needed breakfast served in the room at 6 AM (the restaurant does not open until 6:30). Excellent standard Marriott quality in the bedrooms. The 81 bus goes past the front entrance of the hotel, connecting you either to the Slough railway station in 10 minutes (for trains to London Paddington) or the north periphery road at Heathrow in about 15 minutes, and there you switch to the 285 bus on the opposite side of the road to bring you into the airport terminals free of charge. You do not need to use the more expensive Hotel Hoppa bus. The next time I return to the London area, I will stay here again, as it is guaranteed quality without the rediculous high cost of downtown London hotels. The prices are reasonable here because most tourists have no idea where Slough is located. There is another Marriott in Slough, which is actually a Courtyard Hotel -- I have stayed there and it is good. But the full-service Slough/Windsor Marriott is a better location with good public transport available and right on the M-4 motorway, so I prefer this one.
A Good Standard Airport hotel
As a travel agent working for Ebookers I booked this hotel including the car parking for the duration I was away for (8 days) and found that the hotel rooms where large, clean and very comfortable. The hotel staff were efficient and my partner and I had no problems at all. As one of the less expensive hotels at Heathrow Airport I would have no problem in recommending this hotel to any traveller. If you book and need car parking, book the hotel with the parking included and get the Heathrow hopper bus from the hotel to the terminal and back which is 3 gbp per way per person. All together I would definitely stay again.
Eminently forgettable, bland hotel
Boring, dull hotel, quite close to Heathrow and with lovely (?) views of the M4 motorway.
Rooms are reasonably large. Small pool, gym. Restaurants are mediocre, although breakfast in the bar is cheaper than in the hotel.
Car parking costs extra (not that they'll tell you that when you make the reservation), which is outrageous (trying to pretend its an airport hotel, when Heathrow is a few miles away?).
Don't be deceived by the 'Windsor' part of the hotel name, either: it's a good few miles (and a ten-pound-plus taxi ride) to Windsor; the hotel is stuck on a dual carriageway on the road into Slough.
Service above and beyond the call of duty
Stayed Marriott Slough/Windsor Dec.24th 2003 and left car for 14 nights, no problem. Lovely pool, steam and sauna, decent sized, well equipped bedroom. Lovely meal in the bar, staff very pleasant.
Christmas morning there were too many people for the Heathrow Shuttle Hoppa Bus and a dozen or so of us got left behind, but the Duty Manager got out the hotel's own minibus and drove us to Heathrow himself!
Service beyond the norm. I can (and will) highly recommend this Hotel.
Warning : car break-ins
WARNING - don't leave your car in the airport parking facility at this hotel. We returned from a recent short break away, to find that our car, together with at least 15 others had been broken into. There would appear to be little in the way of security in this hotel car park. An awful end to a brilliant holiday plus a great deal of added expense. The hotel accepts no responsibility for vehicles damaged whilst on their premises.
