In a conversation that started on Saturday at 05:40pm

The Hilton at Heathrow T5 is nowhere fscking near T5. Sofitel appears to be. #foolmeonce—@ndw
@ndw is the Hilton at T5 just the Hilton at T4 rebranded?—@jtauber
@jtauber Don't think so. Separate bus for T4 Hilton.—@ndw
@ndw The Sofitel is the only hotel directly at T5. All others are a fair way away by bus. Also something like £400–500 per night.—@gsnedders
@gsnedders I got a vastly more reasonable rate than that, thankfully!—@ndw
@ndw Looking just now I see stuff for ~£200, which is far less than I remember it being (maybe £380?), though that was v. indirectly booked.—@gsnedders
