Heathrow Airport Hotels With Free Wifi And Prices Of Those That Don’t
Author: Bob Handford
It can be a frustrating experience trying to get practical information from hotel web sites on what they offer, they seem to prefer lots of marketing speak which say very little worthwhile in terms of hard information.
The WiFi prices below were researched in late January, 2014. The source of WiFi pricing information for a hotel where possible is direct from their official web site. More often than not, pricing is not stated here (unless it is free). For those hotels we have used the WiFi prices stated on the Booking.com and HolidayExtras web-sites that have proven reliable for such information over time.
In a very small minority of hotels we have usedthe price reported in a recent review of the hotel on TripAdvisor.
Clearly prices may change over time. Please use this piece just as a tool to identify a short-list where it is likely you\’ll get the best deal for WiFi. If you are going to act on this information please verify direct with the hotel. Most will respond to an e-mail enquiry and confirm pricing in writing – a useful asset to have in reserve.

A Focus On Hotels Offering Free Wifi
On most dates the Ibis hotel will be the cheapest Heathrow hotel offering free Wifi. This hotel doesn\’t get bad reviews. Although most convenient for Terminals 1,2 and 3 it s also fine for Terminals 4 and 5.
What is more from the Ibis you can also use FREE public buses to get to the passenger terminals.
The Holiday Inn Express Terminal 5 is another no frills hotel often not far behind the price of the Ibis. It also has FREE breakfast included in the room rates.
At the other end of the scale the Sofitel, Hilton Terminal 5 and Radisson Edwardian are among the most luxurious hotels at the airport and the price premium you pay for a room at these it might seem a cheek if they didn\’t offer free WiFi – though the Marriott Heathrow is of similar quality and you pay a full price for the WiFi.
The Thistle, Park Inn and Novotel are 4 star full service hotels that especially at weekends have room rates challenging the no frills hotels. However reviews on TripAdvisor often question whether the 4 star marketing is valid (it is valid by the way as stars are awarded for facilities).
Free Wifi With Superior Rooms And Hotel Loyalty Schemes
The above costings are for standard rooms at each hotel.
At some hotels you may get free Wifi if you upgrade to a superior room or suite.
Most hotels at Heathrow are part of global chain with some kind of loyalty/rewards scheme. Holiday Inn is one chain that offers its Rewards Club members free Wifi in its hotels whilst non-members don\’t. If you belong to such a scheme its a good idea to double-check the current benefits.
Free Wifi At McDonalds Restaurants Close To Some Heathrow Hotels
McDonalds offers free WiFi at it\’s restaurants in the UK, (though you have to sign into a free account with your details).
There are 2 McDonalds restaurants in the main Heathrow Airport hotel strips.
One McDonalds is in front of the Radisson Blu Edwardian (that offers free WiFi throughout including its lobby/reception area). Within 5 minutes walk are the Renaissance, Holiday Inn Bath Road, Marriott and Sheraton Skyline hotels that all charge for WiFi.
The other McDonalds is opposite the Sheraton (not Sheraton Skyline). The Premier Inn Terminal 5 is within a 100 yards and the Arora International within 10 minutes walk.
