Rated 3 out of 5 by DougMacd Needs some updates
Have stayed here several times in the past year based on price and airport location. Staff are usually great but the rooms (mostly the beds) need updating. The last bed I had was sloped to the middle and way too soft.

Rated 3 out of 5 by DSKYee What is SPG Gold?
I arrived on late evening of 19th Oct and reached the hotel on Hoppa. Unlike other Starwood Hotels there is no special counter for Premium Card Holder. If there is one it is inconspicuous. So I queued behind two others in front of me. Only to find a guest who arrived later just walked to a counter and checked in without the staff sending her back. Then a couple arrived later still and shouted SPG and was served ahead of me.

Rated 3 out of 5 by jemctag Nice Heathrow launching spot
The Sheraton isn't exactly the finest, but it is extremely convenient to Heathrow, especially when taking a morning flight the next day.
Room was basic, but comfortable. Staff was pleasant, with the exception of the Asian female bartender. We ordered a pizza from room service, which was unexpectedly very good.
The concierge arranged a private car for us to Terminal 3 for just 12 Pounds. Much more convenient and actually less expensive than the shuttle buses.
Overall, good value and location when traveling through Heathrow.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Marty46 Good value for money
My only consistent complaint is that there is no meaningful priority for SPG preferred check-in. I have never seen a receptionist try to enforce the priority facility and there is no dedicated line to make it easy.
The new bar is pleasant but impersonal. Wrong interior decorator in my opinion. Otherwise: rooms are fine, the club lounge is OK if a bit small and the staff pleasant. Good value for money and well located.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Araujo Great airport layover
Great layover for a 1 day or at least 12 hours connection. 10 minutes from airport and facilities are very good.
Good price for a Starwood property.

Rated 3 out of 5 by thecherub88 stay here if you must
this is definitely a one night hotel; a revolving-door kind of place. it's proximity and convenient shuttle bus to heathrow is unbeatable BUT the place is noticeably tired and the staff were, well, very unresponsive (the printing in the club lounge always seems to be an issue). that said, it ticks the box for a pre-flight stay, just don't expect too much and you'll be fine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by jorchm Overnight in Heathrow
The hotel fulfill the purpose of my stay which was to rest for an overnight in London. Wasn't expecting too much from it because of the short time, but it needs to improve in some aspects. The pro's are that it is a good option very close to the Heathrow Airport. It is just a 5 minute ride on the Hoppa bus, straight from the airport terminals. The Hotel has a huge and comfortable Sheraton @-Link living room, with 4 or 5 desktops. The wireless connection throughout the hotel works perfectly. The breakfast buffet on the restaurant was excellent with a big selection of items. The bar offered a good selection of drinks and the atmosphere was nice and pleasant. Check-in was quick, easy and there were enough agents at the front desk to avoid line-ups at that time. The rooms are kept clean and spotless with the full amenities that the Sheraton brand requires
Improvement areas that I found are the following: Since I booked a stay on the Club Level floor, I was expecting to have some rest and enjoy the amenities of the Club Lounge to avoid crowds and catch up with some work, but I found that the Club Lounge was a very tiny space for the amount of guests that they have access. The Lounge was open 24 hrs. but it was unattended after 8 or 9 p.m. therefore the supplies were running out and the garbage and leftovers were piling up. At some point guests have to clear the garbage on the tables in order to be able to use them. There was no access control to the lounge so pretty much everybody could come in. If the Lounge is open 24 hours, it should have some attention after the main attendant left his/her shift. Check-in and Check-out cannot be done at the Lounge (even they have the desk and spot for the attendants, but it seems to be out-of-use). Another aspect that I found that needs improvement is the A/C system in the rooms. It seems that needs and enhancement and update. The temperature cannot be controlled properly and the system didn't cool down enough the room, therefore we have to open the vents on the window to get some cool air in.
This is a very busy hotel and gets crowded sometimes during evenings and early mornings.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nikon26 What you may experience.
This Hotel is hit or miss. The staff has always generally been nice. There are times where there is food, towels, and an unpleasant odor in the hotel rooms and in the hallways. This rustic and dirty odor sometimes triggers my asthma and I struggle to breath at times. On my past stay the room was all of the above and worse. The gym is very limited and the club lounge is meager at best.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Saibini Above and beyond -
The concierge was very helpful when I realized that I left an important, VITAL, Rx at home in San Francisco. He suggested I call a local Chemist to see what could be done. As it turned out, the Chemist was able to help me.
Most hotels are the same, it's the STAFF that make a difference, and the staff at the Sheraton Heathrow are always great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SherryfromBoston Great convenient, quiet hotel
I have stayed at this hotel at least 20 times over the years. I picked it originally after trying many other Heathrow hotels because it is in a nice neighborhood and I like walking in the neighboring village and fields. The staff are great and the hotel has recently been refurbished to have a clean modern feel. Room are relatively spacious.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Debbie51 Overall a great experience
My friend and I found the staff very friendly and accomodating and we especially appreciated our early checkin after an all night flight of 11 hours from Johannesburg. The room was lovely. A nice touch would have been an extra bath towel for washing my hair but everything was as I expect from a Sheraton hotel. We had a lovely stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NFSIII Great value for LHR
A return stay at this LHR hotel, consistent great service and value for this Sheraton. Modernised internals make it comfortable, very good SPG recognition and...it serves an excellent stone baked oven pizza on room service!!!
The car park is often overcrowded with customer and hire cars, it's your luck to get close to the door.

Excellent overnight stay as per usual, very comfortable bed, which ensured a good nights sleep prior to our long flight and a magnificent breakfast to send us on our way.
The refurbishment has been completed and we were very impressed with the Orchard restaurant and the layout of the rooms by reception

Rated 5 out of 5 by Norcaltraveler Perfect location
Love the new remodel of the lobby and restaurant area. We stay at least once a year. The Club Lounge breakfast was very nice as per usual. Only negative is that the Club Lounge evening snacks seemed below par. We had 2 separate stays in the course of 3 weeks so, unfortunately, it seems to be a trend.

Excellent staff at Club lounge. Helpful and seems to know ahead what guests wants.
However, concierge? Is there one? I dragged my luggage on both occassion (checking in & out) I dont even know they existed until when another guests pulled up on the front, he went and help him with his luggage. Me? Im invisible with 2 large luggage dragging along the car park on my way to check in and upon checking out, at 8.26am (8th June), someone was there but not helping out. Dissappointing.
2. I asked reception for a box for packing. I was told to go to the little store at the back to see if there's any.
3. However, the lady at the club lounge with no hesitation offered to look out for one for me and she came back in less than 5 minutes with a beautiful box. - Keep her - she is good for the Hotel - Not because she found the box for me, but she interacted with guests well and sure understand what hospitality is all about.
However - I had a very pleasant stay there and would not hesitate to stay again if I have an early flight

Rated 5 out of 5 by Cathy Wonderful hotel and staff--Indoor pool superb
We loved everything about our stay. Our only disappointment was the setting. On the Athlone and Sheraton website, it talks about and shows photos of being on the banks of the Shannon River and the rolling green hills. You can't see either from the hotel.

We stayed at the Sheraton LHR and were disappointed with the hotel itself. Pleasant staff, convenient location, but uncomfortable bed, small window for room and dated decor, even though recently renovated!
By far, the poorest Starwood lounge I have visited.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JezNYC check-in queues are long
I've stayed here twice in the last month and both times, the check-in and check-out queues were unacceptably long.
By comparison, each time I've stayed at the sister hotel down the road, the check-in and check out process has been very smooth

Rated 4 out of 5 by AndyG Comment on Front Desk Registration
Hotel reception could be improved by including a separate registration area for SPG members. The present set-up at the registration desk is a single line that then feeds the SPG guest registration and non-SPG guest registration.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Vantzy Sheraton Heathrow
The thing I think is most important about the hotel is that the staff did everything in their power to make the guest feel welcome and valued. They really bent over backwards to help with anything you needed at the time.

broken TV remote,
broken air conditioning, room too hot to sleep in
double bed had a broken leg - seemed to be propped up and then collapsed - housekeeping must have known
only one pillow each on the bed and no spare ones in the wardrobe
Spoke to management as we left - overall very disappointing for a Sheraton

Theyhave a problem with their Taxi Serevice.
Allow at least 30 minutes from the time they call one to arrival. They only use "House taxies" and will not call a regular Taxi.
This slows things down quite a bit!
