VIP upgrade at Sofitel

A ‘Park, Rest & Fly VIP’ package has been added to the range of special services offered by the Sofitel London Heathrow, the airport’s only premium hotel connected directly to Terminal 5.

The offer includes access at any of the terminal-based airside lounges at Heathrow available on the Lounge Pass website; one night’s accommodation for up to two people in a classic room, parking for up to 15 days for one car and free use of the hotel’s fully equipped gym.

General manager James Berry said: “The original Our Park, Rest & Fly package is already very popular with guests and we’re delighted we’ve been able to add this VIP version.”

The Lounge Pass, part of the Collinson Group portfolio of services, offers a pre-bookable one-time access to lounges worldwide for both the outward and homeward ends of the journey.

In total, the network incorporates more than 300 airport VIP lounges in 70 countries at nearly 200 airports, including 26 in the UK.

The Sofitel, connected to T5 by a covered walkway, has 605 guestrooms including 27 suites and extensive conference and events space, including a purpose-built auditorium, accommodating up to 1,300 delegates in its largest function room.
