Hotel near Heathrow Airport

I will need to stay in a hotel for one night. The next day i will be leaving home from the heathrow Airport. Any suggestions on a hotel with a good bed and convenient transfer to the airport? Perhaps a hotel that has a shuttle service to the airport. I am not looking for an expensive hotel, something under 90 euros.

I just booked the Sheraton Heathrow through Hotwire for a total of $81.52 for one night. Haven't stayed there, but it looks very nice and has good reviews. They do have a shuttle (not free - 7 pounds roundtrip).

depending on the time of your flight the yotel located in terminal 4 is pretty good and you couldn't get much closer really, ive stayed there on numerous occasions and recommend it thoroughly

I do Priceline for Heathrow and usually spend about $75 (with taxes) for a 4 star. Most of the airport hotels do not have their own shuttles as they are on the Hoppa shuttle.

The hotel in Terminal 4 is a Hilton.

BTW roamer there are a couple Sheratons at Heathrow, Skyline and Coinbrook Bypass, I have stayed at both. I like Skyline better, but Coinbrook is fine.

Years ago I stayed at the Swan--Location is The Hythe, Staines, Middlesex, Rooms have private baths, tv, hairdryers. Charming, historic riverside inn, about 15 minute taxi ride from Heathrow. They may even have pick up service, not sure http://www.fullershotels.com/rte.asp?id=72

"Perhaps a hotel that has a shuttle service to the airport. "

None of the LHR area hotels have their own shuttles They use the paid Hotel Hoppa bus which runs different routes to cover all the nearby hotels.

The yotel would be pretty expensive for overnight. They charge by the hour so is great for say 4 or 5 hours but when you get up to 8+ hours it is very expensive. And it is only convenient for T-4. Which terminal are you using?

Like SAB, I also always bid priceline for LHR hotels. (I've never spent as much as $75 -- but that might just be due to the luck of the dates) PL works great - it is blind bidding but since all the hotels are on the Hoppa, it doesn't much matter which one you win.
