Arora Group hotel development OK'd at London Heathrow

The Arora Group received planning permission to develop a new hotel at London Heathrow Airport. The new property is part of a strategy to focus on larger assets with a higher revenue margin. The property will be in the luxury category. 

When completed, the hotel will have 298 guestrooms and will be linked directly to Queen’s Terminal, Terminal 2, allowing direct access to the airport for travelers. This will also be the first hotel in the Central Terminal Area, which is scheduled to undergo a full renovation along with the rest of Heathrow.

“The people at the Arora Group are experts in this kind of development and we proudly bring another hotel to the Heathrow area with a direct connection to the Queen’s Terminal, Terminal 2,” said Surinder Arora, founder of the Arora Group. “It will meet the demand of guests for a new hotel a short walk to Terminal 2 and will have 298 bedrooms, a restaurant and bar.”
