The Renaissance London Heathrow Hotel is particularly handy if you’re flying from or landing in terminal 2 or 3, and you need a hotel stay to keep on top of your beauty sleep and reduce the stress of commuting to and from your flight.
I’d say it’s a fairly modern looking hotel, and if you love a glamorous chandelier clad entrance you’ll get that in the reception area.
Runway View Room
A view of the runway and planes taking off always helps you get into that holiday mood, and it’s quite therapeutic to watch.
No frills, decorated in warm creamy colours, the room felt warm, and the bed was super comfy, with quite a deep soft and springy mattress, I slept like a baby. (Sorry if you’re ‘team firm’).
The Renaissance is yet another hotel with a scarily monster sized flatscreen TV in your room …I’m sure there must be people out there who have missed flights due to being glued to those screens 😆
The room wasn’t overflowing with sockets but there was an adequate amount.
I found two USB charging ports in the clock (yes a clock – rare thing in hotels these days), easily missed unless you look closely, and very handy for all your cameras and devices.
There are also charging ports in the Renaissance London Heathrow Hotel lobby.
You’re probably only staying for a night or two so you don’t really need much wardrobe space.
Nevertheless, you get a generous double wardrobe all the same, plus ‘proper’ coat hangers – not the one’s you literally have to dismantle each time you use them.
Along with free wifi in your room, 24hr room service, an iron/board/hairdryer/safe, there’s also a fridge.
…and an ice bucket and tongs!
Well if you order breakfast to your room, just pray that they’re a few minutes late getting it to you.
If they’re late, its hotel policy to let you have it for free!
Typical of most airport hotels, there’s car parking if you’re driving, as well as a shuttle bus to take you to all the other terminals for a small cost, or you can get a taxi.
The hotel is not close enough to walk to any of the terminals, and the roads aren’t exactly pedestrian friendly either.
Let me think.
The spy hole on the room door was quite high, those of us on the petite side might need to stand on the foot stool to take a peek.

(Remind me what a plane was?)
You might find them in the National History museums soon enough 😄
LOL. Living in Mexico, I do need planes to go back to Europe once a year. (lest I lose my mind)
How are you doing in the UK? The figures look bad…
Well last week – on the whole the number of ‘new’ cases (known and confirmed) was/is on a downward turn ‘allegedly’ so that’s a positive within the bigger picture, if it stays that way. Are things improving in Mexico? The attacks on health workers in the city is quite shocking!!😢
Let’s hope the curves stay that way in the UK. Here, we haven’t reached the peak yet. And the government keeps lying through their teeth. The next tow weeks, here and elsewhere should be critical. Can you home work? Stay safe. 🙏🏻😷
Tbh, I don’t know what to believe half the time🙄I hope you get past your peak soon 🙏⌛️at least then it starts to some feel like we’re moving toward some sort of normality again (whatever that might look like)🤔
Yes, fortunately I’ve been able to work from home 💻social distancing will be very difficult to maintain if everyone heads back to already very overcrowded offices. Hang on in there 😊I’m guessing you probably have some gorgeous sunny weather to enjoy while you wait! 🔆🌴🍹and stay safe too.
Yeah, I’m not sure about “normality”. 😉
Weather’s been fine since february. Usually is here. Until May-June when the rainy season starts. Which it may have but on and and off. At least we can have lunch on the terrace…
Airports, airports? Hmm. That was a place where planes landed, right?
Yes, once upon a time….😆
Very useful info, Cherryl. That desk chair looks comfy too–much better than pull-up seating of a table chair.
I agree – that comfy chair made a nice change 😊thanks for reading Nancy.
We used to live right near there and had some work Christmas dinners and work conferences there. Yes good view of the northern runway!
Definitely seems like a nice place for events and parties 😊
The photos of the hotel you posted are great and a treat to the eyes.I will keep the name of the hotel in mind if I ever happen to land at Heathrow. Thanks Cherryl !
You’re welcome 🤗
Great review! I’ll keep this hotel in mind for layovers at LHR. The hallway carpet is kind of funky but I like it.
Ha ha, yes, the hallway carpet and decor is a bit wacky – unlike the rooms 😆
