The five-star, 605-bedroom Sofitel London Heathrow has been named Best Airport Hotel Europe at the Skytrax World Airport Awards.
Presented in Copenhagen, the awards also placed the property, which is owned and operated by Arora Hotels, as third in the world.
Winners were based on the World Airport Survey, which had 860,000 travellers participating in the hotel category between June 2010 and March 2011.
