Heathrow gains major south side hotel

Initial work has started on a new 583-bedroom, six-storey hotel at Heathrow following approval by the local authority.

Located opposite Hatton Cross tube station, the hotel will likely be of interest to budget and mid-market operators.  Negotiations are said to under way due to the high levels of occupancy possible all year round with an 18-month target date for completion.

“This decision to grant planning consent provides a massive boost to hotel capacity at Heathrow in a micro-location under-supplied with hotels,” said Martin Drage, Director of letting agent Mason Drage Ltd.

“We have already experienced strong levels of interest from budget and mid-market operators who are attracted by the high connectivity of the site and the grant of consent will allow discussions with operators to progress rapidly.”

The hotel has 131 car parking spaces.  The site was acquired from airline caterer Gate Gourmet in December 2009.
