Sheraton, good stay, but no view..
My husband and I stayed at this hotel after we bought a 1 night room on priceline. We were staying in London on the way back from Athens, Greece. The name Sheraton Skyline was deceptive to us, as we thought we would have some kind of view, but there was nothing of the kind, the hotel I believe is only 3 or 4 stories high. As it was our first time in London, we did feel a bit ripped off with the Hotel Hoppa pass.. if we didn't have 4 heavy suitcases, I may have opted for the free bus from Heathrow the the hotel (all buses from the airport to the Heathrow region hotels are free). Of course we figured this one out on the way back. We had a great time in London, the hotel was approx 15 minutes from the Tube station, then from Heathrow to Central London was a little over an hour. The hotel was nice. We were first given a room key for a room that was still occupied. We went back to the front desk, and they apologized and gave us a free upgrade to a "Sleeper" bed. VERY NICE. I have never slept in a bed that large before, it was probably a king sized bed with another half on it. We had a comfortable nights stay, large bathroom, good service.
Didn't want to get out of bed!
Having stayed at budget hotels throughout our two week trip in Europe, this was probably the best place my boyfriend and I stayed at! When we arrived, I started chatting with the manager who was checking us in. As I also work in hospitality, he said that that was worth an upgrade to an executive level room. I thought this was funny, because I had read a bunch of reviews and followed the tips to book on Priceline, and then email the hotel to request a king bed, non-smoking room; this gets you the executive level room upgrade for free. Therefore, the manager's generosity was a moot point. Oh, well, it was nice of him to try.
The room itself is very much an American style hotel room. The bed was like falling into a patch of clouds. We definitely did not want to get up at 4am the next morning for our flight home! The bathroom is also spacious and decked out in black marble. We got chocolates at turndown service, and the free water bottles and tea maker in the room came in handy, too. We had dinner in the Sports Bar restaurant downstairs. Service was slow (to say the least) and the food was overpriced and average, but there was an enjoyable football game going on that all the convention guests came in to yell and shout for, so the entertainment was good.
Overall, this is a great overnight hotel before a flight, and an awesome deal through Priceline.
Great room rate
I paid just £60 for a room at this hotel, found on their website. I also got a guaranteed upgrade as I'm an SPG Gold card holder. If you stay at this hotel, ask for a room on the second floor as they are exec. rooms that have recently been refurbished.
Arriving at the hotel was easy by Heathrow Hoppa and check-in was quicker than I'd expected.
The room was excellent and definately above average. It had a large bed, big tv as well as a clean and bright bathroom.
The downside to this hotel and the reason I wouldn't say it is Excellent is the price of everything else such as food and drink. The in-room minibar was charging £2.35 for a can of Coke and the 'Turbonet' fast internet access charge is £14.10 per day...very difficult to justify such high prices I feel.
Apart from the prices however, it's a nice hotel with decent facilities including swimming pool. My advice would be to stay here, but eat at the airport before you arrive in the evening and check out then go for Breakfast at the airport the next morning.
Amazing Rooms. HUGE comfortable bed. I didn't want to leave in the AM. Very nice restaurants and SkyLounge was great. Take the free bus from Heathrow Central Bus Station. About 5 minutes and FREE.... I believe the bus is 292, but read otehr revies for the right bus. 3rd stop right after the McDonalds on the left.
Staff was awesome. Room had no view, but who cares. It is at HEATHROW, what is there to see anyway. Room was spacious and loaded with amenities. Would DEFINITELY stay here again!!!
This gives Sheraton a bad name
Where do I start? We reserved a nonsmoking room, but were given a room that reeked of smoke and had a huge ashtray next to the bed. The carpet was torn and patched with black duct tape. There were holes in the hallway walls, along with peeling wallpaper. The ventilation grille was missing and we could see wiring and piping, along with light coming from above the bathroom ceiling. The bathroom ceiling tiles were stained and moldy. The air conditioning was turned off for the entire hotel, making our room hot and smelly. The worst of the evening was the mattress. It was so worn out, we literally could not lay in a flat position. We kept rolling toward the center of the bed. The framing at the edge of the mattress was elevated, due to the lack of support for the rest of the bed, so sitting at the edge of the bed, or laying close to the edge of the bed was impossible. Additionally, the pricing for food was outrageous - total gouging of the customers (16 GBP for Continental Breakfast)! The only good experience at this hotel was the Concierge. He was fabulous, and helped us out withh some of the prblems we encountered while at the Sheraton. This is by far, the worst Sheraton I have ever stayed at, anywhere in the world.
Book a renovated room
I had stayed at the Sheraton on previous occasions on my own and this time because I requested a twin room found myself on the third floor, which looks a bit tired and dated. The beds were still very nice, but no extras such as robes were supplied. The room service menu was out of date and we waited over 30 minutes for a new menu and then another 30 minutes for the food to be delivered, not good when you're tired and hungry and have an early flight. We were also booked in on a night when the hotel runs a Mumbai Nights night in the skybar and were woken on numerous occasions in the early hours by 'guests' obviously just leaving the party. Being an airport hotel I imagine most guests booking into this place would be overnight early flighters like us and so we didn't appreciate this sleep deprivation, after all the whole point was to get a decent nights sleep before a very early flight. We mentioned this on check out and didn't get so much as a 'I'm sorry about that'. Overall not bad but perhaps the hotel ought to rethink the whole arrangement with 'loud partying guests' versus the 'business need to get a nights sleep travellers'.
Stay anywhere but here
We agree with a previous reviewer that this is the worst Sheraton ever. I am a member of their frequent stay program and I am rethinking that now. The reception staff were rude and uncommunicative, and the duty manager was worse. I have never seen such an untrained and uninterested group. We had booked a suite, and they had lost our reservation. Fortunately I had their confirmation on their letterhead. They kept us waiting without telling us what they were doing even when we asked if and what they were checking. Just silence and staring at the computer board. Not even the courtesy of "i'm sorry" or "let's see what's happened" or "we'll sort that out right away" nothing. Finally they sent us up to a room rather than a suite after saying the suite was ready. We had to call them again. Again the duty manager could not communicate properly. And the suite was extremely shabby, frayed, dirty, and missing the fridge and kitchenette they promised! Unbelievably outdated. Another call down to the incompetent staff. I never thought I would say any suite would be not worth staying in. But this was such a rip off, even on special!
Plus you will never pay more for a breakfast.
The doormen were also very rude and unhelpful about where and when the airport shuttle bus was.
There are many hotels to choose from at Heathrow, avoid this one!
