Using airport hotels as a base for London Vacation

Visiting In June 2013 for 5 nights and I am seriously contemplating booking near Heathrow Airport to maximize quality and minimize cost. My only concern is accessibility to public transport to and from the city (and I can't seem to find clarification on hotel websites).

Is this a good idea? ... I guess what I'm really asking is, are hotels (currently looking at the Sheraton Skyline for instance) within walking distance to the tube/bus?

<<The point of this exercise is to show the OP that it may prove beneficial cost-wise to look at other locations easily accessible from Heathrow and Central London. For many it strikes a good balance between location and price >>

I think that's a perfectly reasonable trade-off to make, a choice surely better made when they understand how long it really is from Hounlow to tourist attractions and not the incorrect figure you used?

<<Why do you think an area such as Hounslow is attracting investment from hotel owners?>>

Because people like you are misleading tourists how far it actually is from tourist locations? :-)
