Coming from Central London I am planning 2 stay @ Ur property in Dec w my flight leaving the following day.
Question: What is the best way to travel to Ur property mid-day (physically fit w a carry-on only? Can I take the tube?
When leaving do I simply walk with Terminal 5 4 my US-bound BA flight?
Warm greetings from Sofitel London Heathrow and thank you for your question.
For travel from Central London to our hotel you can take the Underground or the Heathrow Express.
For the Underground take the Piccadilly Line to Heathrow Terminal 5.
For the Heathrow Express take the train from Paddington to Heathrow Terminal 5.
From Heathrow Terminal 5 it is a short 5 minute walk to our hotel as we are directly connected to the Airport via a fully covered walkway.
For travel from our hotel back to Terminal 5 you simply walk back across the walkway.
We hope to welcome you to Sofitel London Heathrow very soon.

Just discovered Ur much appreciated answer, & yes, I will B staying @ Ur Hotel in Dec :)
Thank U :)
Thought you were going to Sofitel in Central London. Take Tube to Paddington and then take Heathrow Express. Hotel is short walk from station and hotel is basically in T5.
Fastest way from Heathrow is Heathrow Express. Switch to subway to get to hotel. There should be a station very close. The hotel is close to trafalgar square so could always walk from there.
Heathrow Express is probably your best option as it's the quickest. You can walk easily from the Sofitel to T5 (it's an internal walkway direct from hotel to terminal) and a combination of level walkway and escalator, only takes about 5-10 mins max.
You can indeed take the tube, though it's a long, slow ride. Or you can take the Heathrow Express from Paddington Station, which is much faster, but also much more expensive. From the hotel you can walk to Terminal 5, where most British Airways flights depart, but it's quite a long walk.
