Heathrow welcomes its latest Hilton

In the midst of celebrations for its 100th anniversary, Hilton has opened the doors of its latest Garden Inn at Heathrow, the first and only hotel at the airport to provide guests via a walkway with direct access to the Queen’s Terminal.

The property is the latest in the growing Garden Inn portfolio and is operating under a franchise agreement with Arora Group, which is celebrating its own 20th anniversary, and becomes the 11th member of that company’s collection.

The 14-floor Hilton Garden Inn Heathrow Terminal 2 has 369 guestrooms, including 23 family rooms and 10 suites offering an adjoining seating area with a sofa bed and 55in HDTV.

Other features include free wi-fi throughout, 24hr business centre and a fitness centre. The hotel also offers five high-tech meeting rooms, with the largest able to accommodate up to 65 people.

Hilton executive vice-president and regional president EMEA Simon Vincent, who also oversaw another opening in Budapest this month, noted the company pioneered the concept of the airport hotel in 1959.

He added: “More than 80m people pass through Heathrow every year and we are proud to be opening our second Hilton Garden Inn at the airport and delighted to offer guests a great accommodation option to make their journeys that much smoother.”
