Rated 2 out of 5 by SPGfan144 Not Sheraton quality
I booked a night at the Sheraton Heathrow because I had to overnight due to air connections. I followed the instructions for the hotel bus, which turned out not to be a Sheraton bus, as at every Sheraton airport hotel I have ever experienced, but the Heathrow Hoppa Bus, where I was asked for 9 pounds sterling: no credit cards, euros or dollars accepted. Only by the generosity of another traveler did I get to the hotel, as I had not been told by the hotel that I would have to pay for the bus. At the hotel I was given a room absolutely the maximum walk from the front entrance (and the elevators) with a window view of a wall five feet from the window. And the front desk agent knew i was a Platinum spg member. I went back to the desk and was finally put in a room with a window to the outside. The bed had a big divot and hot water came out of the cold water faucet (and out of the hot water faucet, too). There was a welcome card and small bottle of wine, but it was addressed to someone else. I described the above to the front desk person at checkout and asked for the manager to contact me. I have yet to hear from anyone, and my stay was on May 4th. And coincidentally, this is the only Starwood stay in recent memory that was not immediately followed by a survey. Very disappointing, and not up to Sheraton (or Starwood) standards. Concierge was great, however, and saw to it that I had a good dinner.

I'm sorry to say, I've stayed many times at the Sheraton Heathrow, This was the first time there was no shop or other means to purchase a News Paper. This is the first hotel of many I stayed in without a News Paper.

Rated 3 out of 5 by JNA1 Lower-cost UK Starwood property
The ground floor public areas of this property have been refurbished. The dark-wood, modern fireplace and aviation images look terrific in the lounge, restaurant and bar. They are now attractive spaces to spend time.
Upstairs, the bedroom accommodation and corridors require the same care lavished upon the public areas down on the ground floor, but if you are paying the competitive rates often available at this property, then one cannot really complain.
The executive lounge service is good. The breakfast is fine.
Tip: There is a good Indian restaurant at the Sheraton Skyline nearby

Rated 5 out of 5 by Guillaume An excellent Stay at the Sheraton Heathrow
As a regular client, i had a special request to accommodate my parents.
I wrote to the hotel and got a very positive reply.
On check in, the Largest room available was given to me and we had an excellent sleep.
I admire the responsiveness of the staff, who are well connected together. They seem to work together as a team, probably due to good management and staff recognition.
I also do appreciate that the rooms are very clean and the bathrooms are all white marble.\The cleaning staff do a very good job.
The service is consistent, and the rooms are always impeccably dressed.
I disagree with a previous comment from another guest, this is definitely a four star property. And it is excellent value for money for heathrow. The food is excellent and fresh. The club lounges snacks are excellent, never the same, which is important for a returning .
The gym needs upgrading and the Guest services hotline on the house phone is not great, sometimes you wait a long time before someone picks up and deal with your request.
The check in staff is adorable and they do respect the SPG priority check in when there is a bus with 80 disrupted British Airways customers.
If you don't want to eat in the hotel, you have next door Mc donald, Hong kong restaurant and just across the road, there is an excellent Gym where you can go for free if you show your room key.
I find the staff interacting, and charming.
This property is improving everyday and will undergo a major long expected renovation.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Tetley26 Property needs regrading to 1 or 2 star...it's simply not 3 star spg
the positive is the hotel is cheap at around £50+ a night.....but no way it could be considered a Starwood 3 star property. Having flown from KL directly from the Sheraton KL which is also 3 star....there is simply no comparison in quality. The Hotel entrance has rubbish, cigarette butts, overflowing rubbish bins and glasses on all the tables outside...seems they only clean that in the morning. The spg lounge is awful...tiny, badly furnished classroom atmosphere...and the food is just very cheap, low quality, supermarket snacks. Breakfast in main resto is ok. Main bar not nice. There is nice lounge by the resto which is quiet and nice real fire effect. As a plat spg you cannot get better value .... £50 less breakfast at say £15, less internet at £5, less a few glasses of wine from the member lounge to the downstairs lounge ....and you have a room for £10-£20 for the night. Please Sheraton just regrade yourselves and stop creating a level of expectation you are never able to meet with a 3 star grading.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Guillaume Another good stay at the Sheraton Heathrow
I stay at this hotel frequently. I would like to say that 90 pour cent of the time my stays are enjoyable. I really like the comfort of the room and the Club lounge where the food is really good and the wines too.
What i admire in this hotel is the professionalism of the Staff if you have an issue they will deal with it, they are proactive and very efficient when it comes to service recovery. The employees at the front desk are smart, and welcome you back using your name. Some of the staff are still unsure about SPG privileges , and it is due to the fact that these privileges do change often.
For example now, every spg member who book directly with SPG ids offered complimentary internet. So i do recommend that you join SPG and also that you book directly with Starwood hotels. Otherwise you will not get free wifi in your room.
As a platinum member i have been offered a suite upgrade in other hotels, but not at the sheraton heathrow yet. To be honest, i dont really care but i do love the sweets and wine that i sometimes get on arrival in my bedroom with a handwritten note by the management. It makes you feel like you are not just a number, it makes you feel valued.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrBonar F&B Team are World Class
Hard to fault the facilities and location. The dining experience is truly world class. The spa is one of the best I have ever experienced. Staff in the F&B department are some of the best I have had the pleasure to come into contact with at any hotel anywhere in the world.
It was extremely unfortunate that my one request for a wake up call was not handled as discussed, resulting in a missed flight and important personal meetings in London having to be cancelled.

Rated 1 out of 5 by OccasionalGguest Worst Sheraton stay ever
After working late on a business trip to London, I checked in to this hotel around midnight, knowing that at most I could only sleep for a few hours, because I had to be at the airport by 5:30 a.m. the next morning.
The common areas as well as my room were pretty shabby, but I figured it didn't matter because I would only be there for a couple of hours. When I got to my room, it was unpleasantly hot, so I turned down the thermostat all the way. After an hour or so of doing e-mail, the room hadn't cooled off, so I opened the window as well.
When I went to brush my teeth before going to bed, I had a surprise: no matter how I adjusted the faucet, I only got hot water. Well, it won't kill me to brush my teeth with hot water...
I slept for a few hours with no blanked because even with the window open, the room was uncomfortably warm. When I woke up, I got a big surprise: like the sink, the shower only had hot water. It was a little bit short of scalding, so I gritted my teeth and took the shortest, hottest shower of my life.
Final indignity? The hotel added a 1 UK pound donation to UNICEF to my bill without asking me.
There are other airport hotels around Heathrow, and on my next visit, I will definitely visit one of them rather than this one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Guillaume Very good experience
I have stayed in this hotel since 1996. And i have seen the improvements made. The lobby and restaurant areas are fresh and brand new. very refreshing and pleasant.
Most of the rooms have been refreshed and they are very quiete and cozy, and you get a good sleep. The hotel staff are very responsive, calm, courteous, well trained, especially Valentina or the food manager Enzo, or the Hotel manager Andrew. or his assistant.Food is lovely. Really, lovely.
Yes the Club lounge is bit tired but the food is freshly prepared and so much you can dine. The wine and spirits are of high quality.
An enjoyable stay where your expectations are met and your needs are answered.
I therefore, highly recommend this hotel.

To be fair, I have stayed in this property many times. And, I have never had a great experience. But, the hotel is improving - especially in terms of customer service. Although the property is still badly in need of renovation, this last stay was by far my best ever. The only negative was that the plates for the breakfast buffet were not clean. Otherwise, the stay was acceptable for an airport hotel.

Rated 1 out of 5 by nyfly Sub-par even for Heathrow Airport area hotel
Ok, you check in, in-between flights... What if you got the RIGHT room key (and there was NOONE ELSE in your room when you opened the door)? Or, if there were, what if staff would quickly and efficiently find an upgrade, apologize profusely and make it up in F&B vouchers? Simple, right?
At Sheraton Heathrow, this was NOT what I got. Yes, double-booked (with an unsuspecting other guest just out of bathroom in my assigned "SPG Floor" room).. Yes, I had to wait in line to check in, get new room and then to see a manager (right, not once but 3 times). Yes, I was promised a lavish point credit as an apology and a free breakfast (I only got 1,500 points - what did I expect..) and yes, I got an email with an apology, genuinely sounding, few days after I left, never expecting to see the hotel doors again. But what difference does it make? You make the call.

i was very pleased with the changes made at this hotel. The rooms were well appointed and my stay was very comfortable. My sole complaint was that I was not acknowledged nor offered any SPG benefits upon checkin. I stayed 3 nights.

Rated 4 out of 5 by thebutlers a tad disappointed…...
Why did the front desk agent mention that it was my 25th stay at the hotel, if she didn't have a way of saying thank you?! Not even an additional "free" drink for my husband as a Gold Amenity. And in all these 25 stays we have never been upgraded to Club level.
And we were annoyed to discover that our 1 hour free internet use had to be used in one continuous hour. But the hotel is convenient and we enjoy the bar and restaurant facilities.

Rated 1 out of 5 by HawaiiSamurai Badly Needs Renovation
This hotel is conveniently located a short free bus ride from Terminal 5 at Heathrow Airport. However, it is badly in need of a renovation. The carpets are stained, the wallpaper torn, and the furniture scratched and dented. The power plugs also were broken in the room. That said, the buffet breakfast in the restaurant was excellent.

Rated 1 out of 5 by sandeepchandel Responsiveness of the stff
I have stayed at the hotel 4-5 nights over the last few months and the stay has been fine - as expected of a Sheraton property. However the responsiveness of the staff at the front desk, I must report, is terrible. WHile checking in and also following up for a copy of the folio, I have not been able to get in touch with the staff at the fron desk. Infact, when requested to speak with the duty manager, there was no response. Can you please help?

Rated 4 out of 5 by Michel114 Great value
The hotel met all my expectations for a business hotel near the airport. I had booked an early arrival but found that my room was not available at my arrival. I had to settle for 2 single beds instead of a queen sized bed. There is a good restaurant, which is very convenient. The front desk staff I encountered was generally not very sympathetic and the concierge was often not at his desk. My sleep was affected by my next door neighbor who constantly slammed his door at all hours of the night. I realize this is not the hotel's fault per se but a room door should not be able to slam like that. Otherwise, I enjoyed my stay. The proximity to the airport is very handy and only 5 Pounds via the Hoppa shuttle.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Brummiesabroad Good airport hotel
Stayed here the night before flying, using the hotel Hoppa bus which takes you literally right to the door under a canopy. I was advised at Heathrow to use the free local bus but was glad I didn't as the stop isn't as close I was told and I would have got soaked both getting there and back. Worth paying for the Hoppa.
The hotel is good, my room I thought was a little old fashioned, but spotlessly clean, a very comfortable bed and a good over the bath shower. The TV was poor though, very old, not flat screen and had to be encouraged to react to the remote, very slow. There was no free wifi, a must nowadays, even for those of us who are older customers. I find this surprising as even the budget chains offer free wifi as part of your stay automatically these days. Also my room did not have double glazing, not a problem for me, but others may find the roar of the planes taking off disturbing when trying to sleep. The planes did stop around midnight though, but not a lot of help if you're trying to catch some sleep during the day.
I ate in the bar on the evening, burger and chips, cooked fresh, piping hot, a big portion and absolutely delicious. Not cheap but good value. Drinks are a little expensive but you expect that in most hotels.
Continental breakfast was included in my deal and was plentiful and good quality. For a very small extra (less than two pounds) you could have full English, a bargain if you can eat that much!
I enjoyed my stay.

Rated 5 out of 5 by newegg Good basic hotel, Good value
Its a more basic hotel in the Starwood chain. A very good and affordable value. My room was very clean and in good condition. The lobby, restaurant and gym are also good. Club lounge is enjoyable but feels too crowded in the evening. Internet connection is excellent and breakfast was very good. Hallways need to be renovated, but does not reflect the overall quality of the hotel. Connection to LHR via the Hoppa bus is good, but can be a bit frustrating in the evening when the schedule slows to 1 pick-up every 30 minutes. It you plan to stay a while, you can manage your schedule more reliably by taking a taxi for 15 GBP. Access to Central London is also surprisingly good. Most of London can be reached in less than an hour from LHR via Piccadilly line or Heathrow Express. A Thrifty car rental office is also located in the hotel building. The hotel is within walking distance to a few basic restaurants and a McDonalds.

Rated 4 out of 5 by wonkachocolat The busiest hotel weekend in London
I stayed at this hotel on several occasions.
This stay was during a weekend where most hotels were sold out and as such it was a very very last minute urgent booking.
The staff were very helpful although the payment had not come through from the website yet (as I'd only just booked a few minutes before check-in). The check-in agent upgraded me to a club room. The club lounge was pleasant and a nice environment to relax that night as well as to have breakfast the next morning.
