Fastest Way from Heathrow T3 to Heathrow Sofitel at T5

Looking for fastest way from arrival on flight from USA (Amercan Airlines which arrives T3) to Heathrow Sofitel (at T5).

We arrive late at night (1045 pm) at T3 and have early (700 am) flight at T5. We already booked the Sofitel at T5 for overnight.

We have done this before on the same late arriving flight and found it a bit of an ordeal.

We went through immigration at T3 and headed for the tube but it had just closed for the night when we got down there to take the free segment to T5.

Heathrow Sofitel website gives directions for arrivals at T3 to use the Hoppa bus but also gives the hours of Hoppa bus as ending at 1145 so it might be even too late to catch that.

If we go through immigration at T3 would a black cab take us? At some airports like our OHare the cab drivers hate a short ride to one of the airport hotels and so there is a "short ride" premium rate. But we don't mind to do that if that is is possible and the fastest.

If we took the "flight connections" route within the airport and the little bus to T5 could we somehow go through immigration at T5 and then walk to the Sofitel?

If it makes a difference to your recommendation we will have only carry on luggage. So we will have nothing to pick up at T3 baggage claim.
