Renaissance London Heathrow: A hotel for the truly jet set

You’d be sleeping in one of the planes if the Renaissance's London Heathrow hotel were any nearer to the airport. The joint closest hotel to terminals 1 and 3 is right beside the runway and a plane-spotter’s paradise - get one of the rooms on the south side of the hotel and you can watch the airline action to your heart’s content. You won’t hear a thing though - the Renaissance is amazingly quiet inside, thanks to the two layers of double glazing on every window.

This is one of the best Heathrow airport hotels to help you unwind before your holiday. There’s a large gym, which is fully equipped with fixed and free weights, bikes and treadmills, a sauna and steam room, plus a mirrored exercise studio which runs a daily programme of classes including yoga, salsa and zumba.

Famously comfortable beds

Our customers rated Renaissance on average 9/10 (271 reviews). Read Renaissance reviews.

The hotel also has a restaurant, a bar which also serves food, a gift shop selling souvenirs and travel toiletries, and a bureau de change. Rooms are cosy and traditional, with soft, luxurious bedding. The Renaissance has a large car park with 24-hour security patrols and CCTV, so you can leave your car here while you’re on holiday, and catch the Heathrow Hoppa or a free local bus from the hotel to the airport. You can also park in the airport’s Long Stay car park or book our Meet and Greet package, where you drive to the terminal and hand your car over to a driver who will park it for you.

We recommend the Renaissance Heathrow for:

Location - The Renaissance can’t be beaten for location if you’re flying from terminal 1 or 3. It’s right next to the runway - you’re five minutes from check-in in a taxi.

Delicious dining - The Market Garden Restaurant has a hot and cold breakfast buffet, as well as an a la carte breakfast menu should your favourite dish not be included. There’s a new lunch menu in the restaurant, while evening diners can choose from international dishes on the a la carte menu or a three-course buffet dinner. Lighter meals and snacks are served in Bar Eleven from noon to midnight. Or if you just want a coffee and a muffin mid-morning, there’s a Starbucks in the lobby.

Parking - Either park in the hotel car park and catch the bus to the airport in the morning, take your car to the Long Stay car park at the airport or book our Meet and Greet package, where your car is collected from you outside the terminal and parked for you.

A great night’s sleep - Beds at the Renaissance are so famously comfortable you can even buy the pillows for your own home. Despite the closeness of the runway, you won’t be disturbed by aeroplanes – we enjoyed a blissfully quiet night’s rest.

Opposite the runway, close to T2 and T3. Quiet, spacious rooms with runway views and 24-hour gym.


The Renaissance has created a Global Cleanliness Council, made up of internal and external experts in hygiene and infection prevention designed to enhance yours and the hotel team's safety.

Public areas are being cleaned more regularly, using enhanced cleaners, including electrostatic sprayers designed to clean areas typically missed. You can expect the same standards of cleanliness in bedrooms too, with disinfectant wipes available for you to use.

At reception, you'll find distancing floor signs, protective screens and sanitising stations for you to use. Some team members may be wearing protective equipment too.

Getting to the airport

The Heathrow Hoppa shuttle bus runs regularly to terminals 2, 3 and 5 during the airport's opening hours and takes around 15 minutes. If you're travelling from terminal 4 you'll need to catch the Hoppa to terminal 2 and then the free Heathrow Express - to save time we recommend getting a taxi instead.

The Hoppa costs £6 per person one way or £11 per person return.

There's also a free public bus. It stops outside the Sheraton Skyline, which is a 5-minute walk away.

Travelling by train? The nearest station is Hillingdon, a 5-minute drive from the Renaissance. A 4-seater taxi costs around £9.

Check in from 3pm, check out by 12 noon.


Overnight parking at the hotel is available if you need it and costs £15 per car.

This package doesn't include parking while you're away. If you need parking for the duration of your trip search for an airport hotel with parking package instead.


All bedrooms have triple-glazed windows which guests say block out the airport traffic well. They're bright and spacious, and some have a runway view, which you can request when you check in.

Rooms include:

  • Free wifi
  • En suites have baths, not showers - request at reception if you'd prefer one over the other

It's free throughout the hotel - guests have said it's medium speed. You'll be given the wifi username and password when you check in. If you want to upgrade to high-speed wifi it costs £10 for 24 hours.

Hints, tips and extra bits

Government regulations require passengers at the airport to wear a face mask. Remember to bring a face mask and have it on before you get there. You'll need one for each member of your party.

This is a large hotel, so we'd recommend requesting a room close to a lift for convenience.
