Emily Jablon: The flight to London was only one hour and we were in business class, which on many flights within Europe just means that we are sitting towards the front and had an empty seat between us. Once we arrived in London, we made our way to the Hilton hotel for our overnight stay. We walked down a long tube-shaped corridor to get to the hotel…it was probably a 10 minute walk.
Daraius: I used 50,000 Hilton points to book us for one night in the Hilton in Terminal 4. I could have paid ~$225 for the room, but would rather save the cash since we have more Hilton points than vacation days left!
I chose this hotel because you can actually walk to the hotel, unlike the other hotels which aren’t really walking distance from the terminal.
We took the free bus from Terminal 5 to Terminal 4 (which was deserted) and walked down the tunnel to the Hilton. We arrived at about midnight, checked in, took a few pictures, and went straight to bed. Since I was a Gold elite member, we were put in the “executive” wing and got free internet and breakfast.
The room was very small.
And the bathroom was tiny.
I particularly like it when the amenities include mouth wash.
There was a desk with a TV.
…and a small closet next to the bed.
We could see the bar and restaurants below.
There were a few restaurants downstairs.
As well as a bar.
The next morning we tried to enter the lounge to get the free breakfast, but I couldn’t find my room key. So we abandoned the plan, because we didn’t want to waste time, and took the free bus to Terminal 5, which was leaving in a few minutes, where we had breakfast in the British Airways Concorde room.
On the bus, I discovered that the room key was in my jacket pocket!
