Spotting a great hotel bargain at Heathrow before you fly is fairly easy these days with the Internet but what about spotting planes themselves?
Well you can combine the two things as there seems to be one hotel that stands heads and shoulders above the others at the airport.
It is the Renaissance Hotel on Bath Road that according to plane spotting experts offer the best views of the airport and its associated aircraft movements and operations that spotters enjoy so much.
There is even a special website dedicated to pointing plane spotters in the right direction as to the best places to stay in order to be able to watch and record the comings and goings at Heathrow.
Called www.plane-spotting-hotels.com and says “It is widely regarded as one of the best hotels for spotting, the hotel is situated on the Northern perimeter road”
They also suggests to ask for a room on the third floor overlooking the airport, as from most of those rooms you will have great views of the runway designated by its code 27R/09L plus many of the taxiways.
Packages Just For Plane Spotters
Whats more the hotel offers dedicated packages for plane spotters logging on to select different room packages there is one purely for plane spotters. The hotel ensures that guests booking those will be given rooms that overlook the airport and it is also possible to use the executive lounge that also has near perfect views over the airport too!
Now with many newly refurbished rooms throughout the hotel its sure to be a first class choice for any aircraft enthusiast.
Some spotters like to picture the planes, others record on video whilst some like to record aircraft numbers and some even like to monitor the radio traffic that all forms part to the airport’s operations and planes come into land or are taking off.
With Heathrow one of the busiest in the world you can watch planes taking off or landing virtually one every minute so bring a camera with a huge memory card or a giant note book because you will be busy from dawn to dusk and even later!
