Is there any website or app where you can find hotels with helipads?

I really want to take a helicopter to a hotel and I think using the internet is the best way to find a hotel with a helipad or some other place you can land.

When Uber launch their heli-taxi service this will be extremely relevant information.

    If you want to know because you need to land your helicopter there, I would imagine asking one of your three personal assistants to research the matter would be a good idea. – DJClayworth Feb 10 '20 at 0:12

    Neither Alexa, Cortana nor Siri can help me with this. They're just chatting about the weather all the time no matter what I ask them to do, @DJClayworth. – Mikael Dúi Bolinder Feb 10 '20 at 0:18

    I suggest taking all your helicopter questions to aviation.stackexchange.com. There may be some databases or charts, or you may need to have a local pilot who knows the area and where landing is permitted under what conditions. The aviation people are much more likely to know that travel. – Patricia Shanahan Feb 10 '20 at 1:02

    As a reminder, questions on Stack Exchange 1) should be practical, real-life questions. Extremely few hotels in the world have helipads, because helipads are extremely noisy places, so you need to explain why you have this particular need. 2) Questions are expected to demonstrate some initial research efforts. Did you do a web search? Did you post on any helicoptering forums? Please edit your question to include this information. – choster Feb 10 '20 at 2:37

    Why the downvotes? Hotels with helipads and regulae transfer services exist, and it's a pretty short enumerable list. I've kicked off a wiki for this. – lambshaanxy Feb 13 '20 at 13:53

I don't know if there's a comprehensive resource, but it's going to be a pretty limited list, so here's a community wiki for it. For inclusion, the hotel must both have their own helipad (flights nearby don't count) and offer regular, bookable helicopter transfer services (unused/emergency-only helipads don't count):

The last four sourced from https://www.businesstraveller.com/news/2012/07/11/five-hotels-with-helipads/ (2012).

No longer on the list:

  • The Peninsula, Bangkok. Taking this was on my personal bucket list, but they appear to have stopped their service, which not only was a snip at a mere $1000/one way (in 2005) but let you check in via their dedicated Sky Lounge too, without ever having to descend to the street level where mere mortals dwell. Sigh.
