Heathrow to Canary Wharf

Jump to last reply

Two of us are arriving at Heathrow on a mid morning week day flight, for a stay in a hotel at Canary Wharf. We will each have a moderate size wheelie bag and a small carry-on bag. Trying to weigh the various ways to get to the hotel, in terms of cost, hassle, time, etc.

I understand the cheapest way is just Tube all the way. Then there is Heathrow Connect to Paddington, connecting to the Tube. But according to the Tube website, the escalators at Canary Wharf are out of service. There is no elevator service listed, yet it says it's accessible for handicapped travelers. Can I assume we won't have to drag the bags up a huge staircase?
Would a taxi from Paddington to Canary Wharf be godawful expensive? Will the traffic be horrendous midday? Long queue for a taxi at Paddington?
Any other suggestions?
