Ideal hotel for the airplane enthusiast
- Renaissance Hotels and Resorts
a stopover at the Renaissance London Heathrow hotel
and you will think that the pilots have invited
you in for an airside viewing of their flights.
The hotel is ideally situated for any plane enthusiast.
The Renaissance, London Heathrow even offers a "Plane
Spotter Weekend Break!"
Walk into The Renaissance and the impressive spacious
grandeur of the lobby greets you with a grand piano
and the welcoming facing of the check-in staff at
the very far end of the lobby. The setting creates
curiosity and makes you want to explore. Any curious
guest will wonder if the vast space has been designed
for a reason and I believe it has.
This is certainly a hotel with meetings and events
at the forefront of its agenda; hence the very
spacious and several meetings and events facilities
to cater for up 500 persons in theatre style.
The hotel’s largest meeting room: Renaissance
Suite; seats up to 500 theatre style but there
are also 6 Master, 7 Host and 5 Studio Meeting
rooms situated on our first floor and the very
spacious lobby can be used for breakouts &
unique asset to the hotel’s meeting and
events facilities is the tiered York Auditorium
which seats up to 262. The York Auditorium is
ideal for previews, conferences and any event
that requires large screen presentations or tiered
available throughout the hotel, meeting rooms
but are subject to charge. Event planners please
here to use the step by step planning
guide for events.
The hotel has 649 well-appointed, soundproofed guest
rooms, 109 Club rooms, some with runway views. It
also provides chargeable WiFi access in bedrooms
and public areas, desk, phone/voice mail, coffeemaker/tea
hotel’s ensuite bathrooms have hair dryer
and toiletries; whereas the rooms have a mini-bar,
cable/satellite colour TV, pay-per-view movies,
board, trouser press, and newspaper delivered to room. There
is also a 24-hour room service and daily housekeeping. Nevertheless,
the hotel’s spacious lobby area floor space is not
carried over to the bedrooms which feels small in comparison
to the entire hotel.
at the Renaissance
Walk through the lobby and neatly tucked away at the extreme
right hand corner as you enter are the DUO Bar and DUO Restaurant
both complementing each other as the name suggests. At both
the bar and restaurant it quite obvious that one thing that
Renaissance does not lack is space.
In Hotel - Ground Floor
Serves: Meals all day
hotel’s two dining facilities offer international
cuisine. There is first of all the DUO Bar where you
can relax and enjoy creative cocktails & a tasting
menu. The DUO Bar service is available throughout
the day & evening.
Location: In Hotel - Ground Floor
Serves: Breakfast | Dinner
is also the DUO Restaurant, offering a very large
floor space together with an excellent selection of
fresh seasonal dishes.
The hotel’s health is not one I would describe as
state-of-the-art but it will suffice for anyone who wants
a quick work out before turning in on the night or for someone
who requires an early morning workout before a flight.
How to get there
If you arrive at London Heathrow, jump onto an assigned
Hotel Hoppa bus, which costs £4 in 2008, and it will
surely drop you at the hotel. Otherwise if you are driving
and intend to leave your car, Exit M4 junction 4, then take
the third exit off the roundabout on Tunnel Road. Turn left
onto East Ramp (just before the airport tunnel). Take the
second exit off the Nene Road roundabout signposted “Customs
House” and Renaissance Hotel”.
Parking facilities at the
The hotel operates the Marriott, Park Here, Fly There Package
whereby you can arrange to include car parking into your
room booking package.
