I currently have the night before an early flight booked with both hotels! Plus parking. Here's my dilemma:
We fly out from South Terminal early morning, and fly back in to North Terminal at lunchtime 10 days later (thanks Thomson). If we choose the Hilton we can just walk from the hotel into the airport at 5.30am. However the parking looks complicated, something about Red Short Stay car park and only paying 7 days parking with the hotel package, have to pay the rest on our return??
Sofitel - parking simpler, all in the package and can leave the car at the hotel. But we'd need to get from North Terminal to South Terminal at 5.30am with 3 tired grumpy children. I cant find any info on the shuttle service, whether its hassle / free / frequent etc.
Any thoughts / experience on which would be the best bet?
