Sheraton Skyline Hotel London Heathrow
Travel Blogs from Hayes
We arrived in London around 12 in the afternoon. I was so exhausted from the previous night and the jet lag had definitely set in so I decided to have a little nap which reulted me in waking up too late to be able to do any sight seeing. The next morning we got up very early and headed out to catch the tube into the city. It was the hop on hop off …
... smooth ride. We enjoyed dinner at Taco Bell and now we are anxiously awaiting to board the plane. We are hoping the kids will settle in to get some sleep. Right now they are playing on the iPads that are littered around the gate. Wow! Who would have known they would provide entertainment for Hailey and Ezra while we wait to board the plane. They are making it too easy. Time to board the plane...here we ...
... size of a wine bottle. They were huge!! There was a silver circle you stood on and the screen showed you your colour mood as mine was dark green and it said people appreciate my honesty. We checked out the first floor and the second floor was pretty much the same and we got a photo with someone dressed as a yellow M&M and they also had statues of M&Ms. We then went down to the 3rd floor and there was an M&M lab where you ...

For the price and rating, I was expecting a little more in terms of service and hotel amenities. Everything was OK but compared to other places I've stayed for less and with less stars, it failed in my mind to go the extra mile to distinguish itself. The bed was amazing though.
We stayed on a SUnday night and the only restaurant open for dinner was a bizarre USA/sports theme bar that made absolutely no sense and definitely didn't match the sophistication of the rest of the hotel. The food was bad and serving sizes inedibly large. Very disappointing last meal for the trip.

Historical Traveler Reviews Sheraton Skyline Hotel London Heathrow Hayes
No value for money
Roomservice is bad, they forget some of the items you order and when bringing your order they stay in your room forever to ask you about five times if 'they can do anything more' for you, which is friendly at first but very annoying after a day or so. Cleaning is actually very bad.. some glasses and bread baskets i left on the table on monday were still there on friday. Express checkout does not work at all, and personnel at checkout is very disinterested and almost unfriendly. Sorry, no cigar. Have had much better experiences in other Sheraton's before.
A very pleasant stay.
I stayed one night at the Sheraton Skyline Hotel in July 2004. The staff were friendly and helpful when checking in.
We stayed in an executive room which was not very spacious but the big bed was very comfy and we slept like little babies. The bathroom was not that spacious either but very clean and modern.
There is a sports bar and another bar by the pool but beware cause the drinks cost a fortune. We enjoyed a meal at the Sage restaurant which was superb and the wine was delicious too! I definitely recommend it! Again it was pretty expensive but spend your money on the food rather than alcohol.
A pleasant stay for one night with no complaints, just good food and wine and a comfy bed.
Know what to ask for!
I love staying at Starwood properties. I need a good nights sleep and they offer the best beds in the hotel industry. So I booked the Sheraton Skyline at Heathrow, assuming I would get a great bed. We stayed there from June 12 to 15. Here is the kicker, ask for the heavenly beds! We were checked into a family style room with a king bed and a pull out sofa. Everything in this room needed replacement. At first I didn't say anything until I sat on the side of the bed. The mattress was horrible and there was a wool blanket from WWII under the old bedspread. I flew to the lobby to make a change. The second floor of the hotel has been totally renovated and the rooms are beautiful. The beds are what I expected and I enjoyed my stay immensely. So, remember to ask for the 2nd floor. It is the "business" floor. Who cares, they will allow anyone to stay there as well. The wonderful thing was the upgarde only cost an additional 10 pounds. A DEAL! The hotel was more affordable than most of the hotels in London and we easily made it to center city by use of the tube from heathrow. The pool is lovely and Sage the restaurant has good food. I would definately stay there again.
Inexpensive and convenient but not value for money
They say if something sounds too good to believe it usually is! And so it proved with the Sheraton Skyline.
We stopped over in February on the way to Tahoe. The price was good and included 15 days parking. The location on Bath Road is ideal for using the free London busses into the airport and its near enough to McDonald to satisfy the kids and to the Heathrow Visitor Centre to keep me amused.
That was pretty much all the good news. Our room was in the un-refurbished wing where the rooms looked tired and shabby. The swimming pool was unavailable because of a wedding function. I understand its regularly unavailable but we were given no warning when booking.
Continental breakfast was included but was average. Theres no barrier to having a full breakfast but they don't warn you that they'll charge you (something astronomical) on the way out!! (In case you're wondering... no I didn't!)
The night before we'd stayed at the Heathrow Travel Inn which was, surprisingly, a much better experience.
Commissionnaires and porters at the Sheraton were outstandingly helpful though.
Generally I don't think I'll stay again and we're looking at the Marriott if we can get the parking package. The Meridien is a better bet overall, the Rennaissance is better value if you don't care about the pool, the Travel Inn is nicer if you don't need long-term parking. Holiday Inn is good with a full breakfast except parking is not on site. Both Novotel and Crowne Plaza offer good value but are too far away from the airport to be convenient.
Main tip is to use London Transport on Bath Road instead of the Hotel Hopper. Its free and comes far more often.
Pleasant as airport hotels go
As with the other Sheraton at Heathrow, this is a decent airport hotel without being particularly special in any way.
Rooms are fine - comfortable and modern - but even the Executive rooms are nothing to write home about, being on the small side.
Quite an unusual design, in that the public areas surround a pleasant pool with a bar in an atrium area. Lots of places to sit and drink coffee; reasonable restaurant. Car park always seems full.
Couldn't fault this hotel....
Gorgeous hotel. We got upgraded to the exec level room which included a huge bed plus all the other trimmings that you get with a 4* hotel.
Clean and spacious for a British hotel. They are in the process of renovating 2nd floor rooms but we didn't hear any noise on the 1st floor.Would highly recommend
Superb hotel, excellent for short and long stays will all amenities. A short 5 minute trip form the airport. Also many large entertaining rooms available for rental, i.e weddings-like i had experienced. The sky bar+swimming pool is absolutely brilliant an heated. Absolutely Great hotel, please you have to go.
What a surprise!!
I stayed at the Skyline last week and was extremely surprised how nice it was. I received a cheap rate on priceline and then stayed another nite from the hotel website. I had a delux room and it was outstanding. The bed was huge and soft. The room was large by any standard and the bathroom was modern. Overall, great experience.
Well worth a stay
This is a really nice , sophisticated hotel a short hop from the Heathrow Terminals. Loads of parking which is free for up to 15 days, very large rooms and a great indoor swimming pool (no changing rooms though!)Ideal place to start your holiday with an overnight stay.Not too keen on the restaurants (not my taste) but other hotels are only a short walk so use theirs. The Bistro at the Raddisson Edwardian is my favorite.I've stayed in dozens of hotels and this one has a nice atmosphere and the staff are VERY professional and courteous.Well worth a try.
If staying at Heathrow.......
I stayed at the Sheraton Skyline Hotel, across the street from Heathrow Airport, for almost a week, at the end of February, and beginning of March, 2003, before flying back here to California. I would rate the hotel as above average, but very expensive. The room service food and delivery was good, and the front desk personnel were quite professional. The room I stayed in was quite spaceous, especially for European standards. If you can afford the room rate, and need to be right at Heathrow Airport, this Sheraton hotel would be worth staying at. I paid around $200 (U.S.) a night, which apparently is not as much as one would pay at some of the other fancy hotels at Heathrow.
