Hilton London Heathrow 2022

On my last full day in London, knowing I had a very early flight the following morning, I decided to stay at the Hilton Heathrow, located at terminal 4. This is also technically a closed terminal so there is no public transportation, but there is a shuttle bus that goes around for £6 or you can take a taxi for £23.

Arrival

Yet again, the underground line to the airport was under a surprise closing and well, they are batting 25% recently. I took the Heathrow Express train from Paddington station. To get there, I had to transfer underground lines from Victoria to Bakerloo, and luckily the stations had either elevators or were same level to transfer so I wasn't killing myself with my bags.
I arrived around 5pm and the room was ready as one would expect at that hour, and the Executive Lounge was starting its Happy Hour service at 6. Not bad timing at all!

The Room

A very standard-sized business hotel room, which I found nice as most seem not to be this large around Europe and especially in the center of London.
A King bed, and it fits very well Excellent desk, very new feeling and the plugs were very tight so things stayed put (English plugs are the size of a small dog and pretty heavy) Nice regular-sized vanity
Great shower and not sandwiched into a tiny space Love the airline motif
The view from the room was an unspectacular glimpse of the atrium so I won't bother with it. Instead, here's the view from the elevator bridges that cross the property.
A fairly 1980s super open atrium plan, which I like

Food and Drink

There is a nice restaurant with very large bar.
Soccer was all the rage on Sunday.  I had other plans for drinks though Quick grab and go for those on a business trip and short on time
My favorite amenity in a full-service hotel is the executive lounge which seems to be a very rare item these days, so I am very happy to see and experience them when a hotel has one.
Ah, yes, the unicorn, an open Executive Lounge Pretty decent sized space, and kinda empty Snacks available
And what's this?  Free drinks?  Well... you found my weakness

Event Spaces

Several event spaces down below and looking out over a pond. It was a strange space, and I didn't find any open rooms to take a picture.
Looking out from the event space common area vaguely towards Heathrow

Amenities

There is a decent gym, many machines and devices available.
Long rows of treadmills Weights and other cardio machines

Summary

The consummate 4 star business hotel. Many amenities and very clean, great open space and very comfortable feeling place. Tip: Get a room facing the inside to mitigate the airport noise.
