The Concorde Room

The Concorde room is the epitome of elegance and available at Heathrow Terminal 5 and New York JFK. The finest 5 star boutique hotels inspired the design for this calm and inviting space. Luxurious furniture, beautiful chandeliers and amazing artwork create a unique and stylish home away from home.

Intimate dining in private booths with full waiter service, private cabanas* with a comfortable day bed and en-suite, give you the privacy you wish for. If you need to continue working the state of the art business suite is ideal for you to catch up. When you want to take a break, enjoy a drink on the terrace and delight in the spectacular views across the airport.

* Private cabanas are available at London Heathrow only.
