If you have a birthday coming up or the birthday of someone special and want to make a big fuss of it, sometimes its nice to get away for couple of days - if you look around online you can almost always find some last minute weekend deals for occasions such as this.
If you're looking for a little bit of extra luxury, why not book into one of the Heathrow hotels at the same time as booking your Heathrow airport parking? Not many people think to book an airport hotel before they fly, but actually they are really convenient - not to mention adding an extra few hours of relaxation time onto your holiday. There are a lot of hotels to choose from at Heathrow, an example of one being the Hilton Heathrow - one of the nicest. It is a 4-star hotel but they make that extra little bit of effort so it feels like a 5. There is a swimming pool and leisure facilities to make sure you can relax in and there are three different menus to choose from at the different restaurants, so it makes a perfect setting for the first night of any romantic break.
There are a lot of companies online which offer airport parking and hotels - which are cheaper when you book advance online. Holiday Extras is one such company and the website is simple, easy and quick to use.
Booking an airport hotel can be a really good way to start a weekend break, not only because the hotels are excellent quality but it can make the rest of the trip easier too. You can turn up to the hotel the night before your flight and completely relax for the evening; theres no need to worry about timings and the rush of departure day since you're already in the right place. You will wake up feeling totally refreshed and it's almost impossible to have to rush or miss your flight. All in all, it will make for an extra special birthday weekend away.
