Airport Transfer Details:

There are several options for getting to the airport. We’d recommend using the POD, which is connected to the hotel via an outside walkway.

To get to T5:
The POD takes 5 minutes to get to T5 and costs £5 per person each way. You can buy tickets for the POD shuttle at the hotel reception, as well as the access code and directions.

It leaves every 3 minutes and runs from 3am - 1am on weekdays, from 3am - 11pm on Saturdays and from 4am - 11pm on Sundays.

  • Use the machine to call the POD.
  • Once you get in, press the button for T5.
  • You’ll arrive at Car Park Level 2, Business Parking and take the lift to Departures.

To get to T2, T3 or T4:
Take the POD shuttle to T5 first, then use the free Heathrow Express train to get to T2, T3 or T4.

Alternatively, you can get the Heathrow Hoppa bus which takes 15 minutes, and costs £4.50 one way. If you do choose the Hoppa, you’ll need bus H4 for terminals 2 and 3 and H51 for Terminal 4.

A taxi to T5 will cost around £15.
