[Solved] Where has the Atrium Hotel Heathrow’s top floor gone?

We have written a couple of articles about, and a review of, the new Atrium Hotel at Heathrow, opposite Hatton Cross underground station.

We found it all very odd. Odd, because it looks weird. Odd, because it is very rare to build an unbranded hotel of that size these days, especially at an airport where name recognition counts. And odd because, well, it is, as our review showed.

This is the oddest move yet though. Two readers have sent me photographs showing that the top floor is being removed from the hotel. See below.

If anyone has any information, please let us know.

EDIT 10am: OK, we have got to the bottom of it. It is for “Addition of a new 7th floor to provide a sky bar/lounge, restaurant spaces and six additional penthouse suites”. Permission was only given in January 2020 despite plans being submitted in 2018. The hotel seems to have decided to finish building to its original plans, to allow it to open, and then invest in a rebuild a year later. Here is an image:
