Hilton Garden Inn Heathrow now open at Hatton Cross

The Jury’s Inn hotel at Heathrow / Hatton Cross reopened on December 10th as the Hilton Garden Inn London Heathrow Airport.

What I like about this hotel is that it is very close – a couple of minutes walk – to Hatton Cross underground station.  This makes it considerably easier to reach than most of the hotels around Heathrow, the majority of which require you to take the Hotel Hoppa bus unless you can navigate the local buses.

Hilton Garden Inn Heathrow

Not only is the Hotel Hoppa expensive at £5 per person each way, it can also be incredibly slow as the buses can stop at a number of hotels before reaching yours.

The Hilton Garden Inn is far easier to reach with a very short one or two stop tube journey.

Whilst the hotel now carries a Hilton brand, Jury’s Inn continue to own and manage it.  It has been fully refurbished as part of the rebranding.  One perks is that all guests will receive free wi-fi.

You can find out more at the hotel home page at hilton.com hereIt is priced at 30,000 points per night for a Hilton HHonors redemption – in line with my valuation of Hilton points at 0.3p given the £99 typical price.  However, if it is available for your date, ‘Points & Money’ is a far better deal at just 12,000 Hilton HHonors points plus £32.

  1. If you are staying at any of the hotels along Bath Road, and that includes the Marriott, Sheraton, Renaissance and at least two Holiday Inns, the public buses are extremely easy to use – they are free and frequent, too. Remember that you would need to pay for the tube from Hatton Cross – personally, unless Hilton is one’s chain of choice, I don’t see any advantage in staying at this new hotel rather than one of the others on Bath Road.

    Rob, we stayed here the night before I took that pic of the EthiadA380 at Heathrow – great refurb.

  3. You can also use Jurys Inn Free Room Night Awards for this hotel, 14900 points for room only.
    Jurys points can also be used to redeem at:
    Doubletree by Hilton London Chelsea
    Doubletree by Hilton London Islington

    • Thanks Linda. Doubletree Chelsea (which is not in Chelsea!) is next to the ‘nearest thing to hell on earth for adults’ indoor kids soft play centre Gambado where we often go on wet weekends!

  4. Dudeabides says:

    The number 423 bus is free and stops along the Bath road near most hotels.
    I use it to and from Terminal 5.

  5. Nice post. Please don’t forget that Hilton has a very nice hotel at the terminal at Heathrow. Greetings from Hiltonhotelfans.

  6. Regarding buses:
    T1-2-3 – the 285 and 555 and X26 are all free from Hatton Cross. The latter of these is non-stop.

    T4 – 482 and 490 are free from Hatton Cross.

    T5 – 482 and 490 (via T4) and 423 (via Bath Road) are free from Hatton Cross.

    They all take a bit longer than the tube but are much more often and are of course free!

  7. My personal opinion is that most hotels down the Bath Road are a little run down now and not maintained as well as they could have been. I think they were at their prime in the 80’s! Good to have a nice new refreshing option.

  8. andy stock says:

    The tube is not free, I have a zones 1 to 5 travelcard so no extra charge to Hatton Cross (zone 5), then I get charged £1.60 peak or £1 off peak from Hatton Cross to Heathrow.

  9. It’s probably in a pretty good place for spotting also, are there any views from the rooms?

  10. Fabulous views from the rooms. I was able to check in online at the hotel last week and you choose your room like you can choose a seat on a plane. You need to be a HHONORS member. I choose room 609 as I know that side looks out on the road where planes are approaching the majority of the time. Amazing views. So close you can nearly touch them as they are about 5 seconds from landing.

  11. Let’s hope Jury’s can recognise HHonors members successfully…
    My mum has ‘Floor 3’ Jury’s rewards status (not her choice, she ends up there through work), and she barely ever gets the correct benefits. She’s even asked before, and the clerk isn’t sure of the benefits or doesn’t have any drink vouchers. It all tends to be a big mess.

    • Stayed recently before flying out of LHR. The nearest bus stop is Envoy Avenue for the hotel, just a stop before Hatton Cross. It is a bit easier to get to/from T1,T2 &T3, as there are more buses and runs more frequent. It takes a bit longer to get to/ from T5 by bus. If you are in a hurry, the Tube will probably be the best option.

      As HHonors Gold I was offered free Breakfast or Points. However, this was all I got. No upgrade from the Queen room, and no bottle of water was given.

      It was just a short stay, so I did no bother to ask for upgrade or water, and in fact the Queen room is reasonable good size. I later found out from a friend that she did not get an upgrade but did receive a voucher for a bottle of complementary water, so I am guessing the staff are still learning…

      The room itself was kind of nice, but the towels in my room were dirty, and the bed sheet have some hairs on it, my friend also had the similar issue with used towels being put back on the rack. The wall are also very thin and I can hear my next door neighbour clearly….so I think I will take the Doubletree instead despite the fact it is not within the free bus zone.

  12. My favourite airport hotel. I just prefer jumping on the tube for 1 / 2 stops rather than wait for a bus. And as mentioned – some fabulous views from the top floors (make sure you request them). Looking forward to trying it out (although living in North London I rarely need a LHR hotel – but useful with my family for early morning departures).

    • I agree. Whilst it is possible to use the local buses for free, I severely doubt that anyone unfamiliar with how they run really wants to drag their bags to the Central Bus Station (if in T1-3), find the right bus stop, worry about which stop is the right one and then worry about how far the stop actually is from the hotel.

      Down to the tube, quick 1-2 stop ride, short stroll to hotel, job done! Obviously the Sofitel and Hilton T4 are easier but you pay for that convenience. And, of course, if staying the night before a flight then you can just jump off at Hatton Cross and avoid LHR altogether.

      • Phi rob. Whatever happened to the article you were writing about transport options and parking around Heathrow? I remember you saying you were putting something together about a year ago. Did I miss it?

  13. andy stock says:

    Rates good as well, random Saturday evening advanced room only rate £52, advanced breakfast rate £61. Remember you get free WiFi and from the pics the refurb looks decent.

  14. Is it worth paying the extra £8 for a King room over a Queen room?

    £52 a night in a Queen (Winter Sale) Vs. £60 in the King.

    Not sure if Hilton Gold status would get an upgrade to a KIng (not that it really matters as it’s an airport hotel for the night)

  15. I stayed at this hotel a couple of times just after its refurb and transition into the new Hilton ownership. As I guessed at the time: Prices would rocket. I paid £67 and £75. Now I can’t find a room for less than £112 in March. About 80% more than the lowest price I paid.

  16. I’ve booked a LHR hotel and parking on bath road. Rather than trying to get 2 kids and luggage on to a bus is it easy to use Uber to and from the hotels?

    Hi folks. My choice as HHonors Diamond and IHG Plat was the CP Heathrow via Bus A10 but after my last stay on the 21st Dec I got a letter saying the lounge access for Plat’s was being stopped due to large numbers of Platinum guest using the hotel!! Although you can still access the lounge for £24. Back to Hilton for me – and hopefully Lifetime Diamond in the 2015 HHonors changes.

    • This is bad news. Has lounge access already been stopped or is there a date this is effective from?

      • Effective 22nd December – weird date not even into the new year – oh wait – it was before Xmas and New Years Eve to stop those pesky free loading plats
