Hilton has opened a hotel linked to one of Heathrow’s central terminals.

The 369-room Hilton Garden Inn London Terminal 2 is the only hotel at the London hub with direct access to the Queen’s Terminal via a walkway.

The 14-floor property with runway views is operating under a franchise agreement with Arora Group, the 11th in its portfolio.

“Hilton pioneered the concept of the airport hotel back in 1959, so we are proud to be opening the doors to our second Hilton Garden Inn property at Heathrow as we celebrate our 100th anniversary.”

We are delighted to be partnering with Hilton Garden Inn and delivering the service, excellence and passion of Arora Group, whilst based at the convenience of Heathrow’s central terminal area.”
