The Arora Group is gearing up for the opening of two linked Heathrow Terminal 4 hotels in October this year. The dual-branded property, ‘Crowne Plaza London – Heathrow Terminal 4’, and ‘Holiday Inn Express London – Heathrow Terminal 4’, will have a total of 761 rooms and together will form one of the largest hotel openings in the UK this year.
The hotels are a three-minute walk to the terminal building and will be the largest hotel complex directly connected to a British airport terminal.
‘Crowne Plaza London ‒ Heathrow T4’ will have 304 rooms and a range of business and meeting facilities, including ﬁve meeting rooms, a fitness centre, executive lounge and three bars and restaurants. It will also have dedicated quiet zones, a “Sleep Advantage Programme”, including premium bedding and guaranteed wake up calls.
The 457-room ‘Holiday Inn Express London ‒ Heathrow T4’ will be a ‘next generation’ Holiday Inn Express hotel, featuring an Express Bar and Cafe and the brand’s new larger, beds. Over 100 guest parking spaces will be available at the hotels.
The hotels are linked to the terminals via a bridge and also have direct access to the London Underground, Heathrow Express train service and nearby motorways.
Kaushal Niraula, Group Strategy Director, The Arora Group, said: “We are delighted to be nearing completion on this fantastic project. Constructing hotels on such a scale in such close proximity to Europe’s busiest airport was a challenge, but we have a very experienced team and we are hugely proud of the achievement. The two new Terminal 4 hotels will be superbly positioned to cater to the leisure and business travel market. By 2019 the Arora Group will be the first company to serve all airport terminals at Britain’s two largest airports, Heathrow and Gatwick.”
The hotels join Arora’s other airport properties: Sofitel London Heathrow at Terminal 5; Renaissance London Heathrow at the central terminals of Heathrow Airport; Sofitel London Gatwick, at the North Terminal; and Hilton London Gatwick airport at the South Terminal.
Another addition will be Hilton Garden Inn London Heathrow Airport, situated in the Central Terminal Area at Heathrow, due to open in early 2019.
On completion of the project, the Arora Group will become the first company with hotels connected to all Heathrow and Gatwick terminals, via Central Terminal Area (T2 and T3), T4 and T5 at Heathrow and the North and South Terminal at Gatwick.
