Julie,

You don't necessarily need to stay next to Heathrow, since there's tube access that can take you directly into town. Since we went to London in early 2006, I have Rick's London 2005 book. Here's what he says about staying near Heathrow:

"It's so easy to get to Heathrow from central London, I see no reason to sleep there. But for budget beds near the airport, consider $ Heathrow Ibis (Db-£65, Db-£45 on Fri-Sun nights, breakfast extra, cheap shuttle bus to/from terminals except T-4, 112 Bath Road, tel 020/8759-4888, fax 020/8564-7894, http://www.ibishotel.com, h0794@accor-hotels.com)."

Like I said, this is from the 2005 London book. You could go to the bookstore and check and see if he still recommends this, or any other, hotel near Heathrow.

Near Fiumincino:
Hilton Hotel located at the airport - only hotel actually at the airport. Very pricey.

Hilton Garden Hotel near the airport - new!

Courtyard by Marriott near the airport.

If you plan on using a hotel shuttle be sure to verfiy the times that the shuttle operates. Usually the first run is at 7a so if you have an early flight you may land up taking a taxi to the airport. Personally I would stay in the center and take a taxi in the morning. Airport hotels are usually dull and the center has so much to offer.
