Hi it's me again! :)
Just an update and a question...
Thank you forum for all your help so far...
In another thread I had asked about transport from Chester to Heathrow and it evolved to where to stay etc. with some great ideas.
However, we came up with another plot... more expensive, but fun.
If we take the train from Chester to London, and we book a hotel near Paddington, we can drop our bags off for the rest of the day and play in London. (My hubby's old stomping grounds where he used to work) Since we need to be at Heathrow no later than 8:30 next morning, we can pop for tix on the Heathrow Express.
I know it would be spending approximately 75 more U.S. dollars than taking the tube, but it will get us there in 15 minutes rather than the hour... beside we lucked out on so many deals on our trip we don't mind the splurge. :)
So now I just want to confirm that Heathrow Express will drop us off at or within walking distance of Terminal 3.(Virgin Atlantic right?)
I will be hunting for lodging near Paddington... could be a short walk, we're travelling relatively light. I already checked Darlington Hyde Park, but their family rooms are already sold, (might pop for 2 rooms) If anyone has other suggestions or experiences with Paddington Hotels, please let me know... again would like to be withing walking distance of the station. :)
Thank you sooooo much!
