Hyatt opened its first Hyatt Place at Heathrow back in May of this year but to call it a Heathrow hotel is  more than a little stretch. The property is a 20 minute drive from the closest terminal and, according to the concierge I once spoke to, isn’t on any direct bus route to the airport. Essentially this is a hotel that happens to be in the vicinity of Heathrow, no more.

For someone who travels through Heathrow as much as I do this has been a big source of frustration. I would have loved throw in some nights at the Hyatt Place to help me retain Diamond status but the location is just so incredibly inconvenient that I couldn’t do it.

Perhaps Hyatt agrees with me on the inconvenience of its solitary Heathrow-adjacent property as it would appear that a second Hyatt Place is on the way.

Hyatt is to renovate the “Heathrow Hotel Bath Road” and reopen it as the Hyatt Place London Heathrow early next year.

Here’s the location of the soon-to-be new Hyatt Place at Heathrow (click to enlarge):


And here it is in comparison to the current Hyatt Place location:


That’s a huge improvement.

The new Hyatt Place will be just 5 – 7 minutes drive from Heathrow Terminals 2 & 3 and that’s the sort of drive time we should expect for a property billed as an airport hotel.

The Bath road is where you’ll find better known Heathrow Hotels like the Sheraton Skyline, the Radisson Blu Edwardian, the Renaissance Heathrow and the Holiday Inn London Heathrow Ariel which I took a look at earlier in the year.

The is a regular bus service to/from the airport and, unlike the location of the existing Hyatt Place, if you don’t want to take a bus taxis are easy to come by (at least in my experience).

Once the hotel reopens it will offer 350 rooms a “Gallery Market” pen 24 hours a day, a bar, 7 meeting spaces and a 24-hour gym.

The opening date for the Hyatt Place London Heathrow has been described as “early next year” but, considering the delays we saw to the opening of the Hyatt Place London Heathrow Hayes, I wouldn’t try to guess what “early next year” actually means.

Bottom Line

This is good news for Hyatt loyalists and it’s about time Hyatt had a proper Heathrow presence.

Sadly this will come too late for me as I’ll be loosing my Diamond status at the end of February but, now that Hyatt is upping the number of nights needed to qualify for top-tier status, this new property could come in very useful for anyone chasing status next year.
