Euston. You'll probably need to change trains at one of the Birmingham
stations. See http://www.nationalrail.co.uk/.

Heathrow is at the end of the Piccadilly line, and has trains from
Paddington. If the flight is horribly early, I'd just stay at one of
the ghastly hotels at the airport*. Otherwise, stay near Paddington, as
the train is a lot quicker than the Piccadilly line.
* I've not stayed at any of them, but they're at an airport so are bound
to be horrid. Everything to do with airports is.

Booking.com knows about areas of London, so no postcode necessary, just
tell it "Paddington" or "Euston".
