Sofitel Heathrow: luxury takes off

After Sofitel St-James and Sofitel Gatwick, the new French luxury brand has just opened its third London property at Heathrow. The hotel is directly connected to the new terminal 5, and is owned by Arora International Hotels, which specializes in airporthotels and is the privileged partner of the Accor group. This high-capacity hotel with over 600 rooms addresses globe-trotters first and foremost and the architect Stephen Williams looked at the hotel as a gateway to the world with five atriums representing the different continents. The interior design, entrusted to Khuan Chew, who is known for the luxurious interiors of the Burj Al Arab, reinforces the opulence of this 5*. An important detail: each of the 27 suites has its own personal butler. Five is an important for Sofitel Heathrow. Vivre, the cuisine spectacle restaurant, has cooking stands based on 5 themes (Deli, Hot Wok, Grill, Forno and Sweets). It joins the more gastronomic Brasserie Roux. For travelers between flights, the hotel offers a haven of peace with its Zen garden and ESPA spa. But, considering its location, the hotel is naturally turned toward business meetings. 45 high-tech meeting rooms, a state of the art auditorium seating 117 and the Aurora Suite offer maximum capacity of 1,700 as part of its “haute couture” meetings concept.
