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.
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 here. It 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.
