A five-minute drive from London’s busiest airport, the Radisson Blu Edwardian Heathrow is a handy fly-and-flop (or flop-and-fly) hotel with resort-style amenities. The exterior may be a little dated, but once you’re inside it’s all about making the most of the facilities, including an intimate cocktail bar and a spa that’s open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. The marble-floored, wood-paneled lobby is a hive of activity and leads through to a sleek open-plan restaurant and an interior courtyard.
Bed and Bath
Designed for comfort and convenience, the 459 guestrooms have a cozy color scheme (taupe walls, burnt orange cushions and chocolate-brown throws) and feature plush kingsize beds, sizable work desks and flat-screen TVs with more than 80 channels. The hefty curtains and soundproofing keep any runway noise at bay, and most rooms feature both a shower and a bathtub for a pre- or post-flight soak. Handy extras in all rooms include tea- and coffee making facilities and free bottled water, plus bathrobes and slippers (in the Deluxe categories and above).
The restaurant, Steak & Lobster, is the perfect way to top and tail your travels, with top notch London cuisine served daily.
Choose from a mouth-watering steak, freshly cooked lobster (all with unlimited fries and salad) or a veggie option. Alternatively, head to Annayu for spiced-infused cocktails and contemporary Indian cuisine (lemon sole with tamarind salsa, duck with black cherry and nigella seeds). Grab a table on the upper level for views of the interior courtyard. The Bijou bar is open until 1 a.m. every night and is a sleek spot for drinks and upscale snacks. The hotel’s standout feature is the Pegasus Spa, which features a sauna, a eucalyptus steam room, a plunge pool and a 24-hour gym.
In the Area
If you have time to venture away from your gate, take the Heathrow Express to central London; you’re less than half an hour away from Paddington Station, Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens. Or take a cab to nearby Windsor Castle; the oldest and largest occupied castle in the world offers tours of its grounds, including fall and winter visits to the ornate Semi-State Rooms (provided the queen isn’t entertaining). Also nearby are Richmond, home to London’s largest royal park and charming riverside pubs, and Chiswick, a posh neighborhood dotted with boutiques and restaurants.
How to Get There
I have stayed here several times over the past 20 years. This hotel consistently delivers. The rooms are clean, the bars and restaurants are great and the service is great. Always my go to hotel when i need to be close to the airport usually the night before my flight.
Rubbish staff, ridiculously expensive breakfast £20!!! There is a mc Donald’s just down the road better go there instead. £5.50 for a beer. Hotel is nice on the inside and ugly from the outside, very close to the airport
We were here for just one night to celebrate thirty years! The lovely staff upgraded us to a junior suite and left strawberries, wine and a charming card. The bed was beautifully decorated with swan towels and rose petals. We both had a small tear. We enjoyed a lovely dinner in the buzzing Indian Restaurant ( love the elephant guys) and drinks in the bar. What a celebration we had. Thank you Radisson Blu and thank you Mr Tucker - it hardly seems like a year let alone thirty????????????????????????????????????????
