London Heathrow - Renaissance
Disclaimer: LaMa Aviation does not get sponsored by the hotels. We pay the regular fares and we solely provide a review for planespotters and aviation enthusiasts who like to watch planes from their beds.
One of the most famous spotting hotels is the Renaissance Hotel at London Heathrow airport. This hotel provides amazing views over the north side of LHR. The double glass windows cannot be completely opened, but one layer can be so you would not have bad reflections. One of the few downsides would be the fact that if the sun is out, you are facing the sun almost the entire day. When booking a room with a good view you should go for the Executive Runway View rooms (numbers 3201 till 3235. Otherwise your view is likely to be blocked by a part of the hotel itself.
The hotel offers a great restaurant and bar where you can watch the planes go by as you eat. This hotel is not cheap, but highly recommended!
