Emily in the Hilton Heathrow Terminal 4

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.

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!

sorry for bringing up an old thread Daraius, but just wondering since you’ve been to terminal 4 in heathrow, can you recommend a good meeting location there? i will be arriving on united (i think united is out of terminal 4) and my bf will be arriving from thai airlines in terminal three a few hours before me. i was thinking he could come to terminal 4 to meet me, but i don’t know of a good location to meet since i’ve never been to heathrow before. no worries if you don’t know the answer to my question. thanks in advance.

@angeline – United appears to be a mixture of Terminal 1 and 4. I usually meet folks outside the arrival hall or in the baggage claim area, but you can look at the terminal maps and fix on a meeting spot as well.

We stayed at the Hilton Heathrow Terminal 4 last month and had a very pleasant stay. Our executive room was very tiny but nice with all the regular amenities. We arrived late in the evening and headed to the Executive Lounge which had put away all the food so we ordered from the restaurant and had it delivered to the Lounge. We were quite happy with the quality of our dinner and the great service. I don’t quite remember the breakfast (maybe not a good thing) but I think it was adequate. I’d like to try the new Hilton too, but this one was great for our early morning flight from Terminal 4.

Thanks for your detailed report. I hate to see your trip come to an end!

Not a fan of this hotel, but it’s right at the terminal. Bit worn and small rooms. I do prefer the new LHR hilton, but you need to take a shuttle (not free)

@RobM – In that case, I’m glad I skipped breakfast there!

@Rob P – None that I could tell, besides perhaps a slightly larger room.

@Zz – I haven’t stayed at the other Hilton, but this serves the purpose for a quick overnight stay.

Were there any benefits to the Executive wing compared to the rest of the hotel?

I’ve really enjoyed this series.

Smart move to skip the lounge and eat at the Concorde. We did the same in June. The food at that Hilton is an embarrassment. We had a dinner that was so offensive, I was compelled to lodge a complaint through the Diamond Desk. Never received a written response, but found the entire meal credited back to my credit card.
