London Hotels
I will be in London for 3 nights in the middle of November. Can someone please recommend a lovely hotel. I do realize that London is large, but would like to be near some of the major attractions. Perhaps the palace?

Well, what's your price range?

I like the Howard (a Swissotel) and will be staying there again in November. It's about a 10 minute walk to Covent Garden, and right on the Thames. Nice place. I think it's about $250 a night.

Tip - go to the search box & type in "London hotels" - there's a couple of postings about them, some of which are even titled "London hotels"

There are (quite literally) hundreds of suggestions already on here - so search to get you started.

then come back and
1) tell us your budget,
2) &quot;<i>. . . . near some of the major attractions. Perhaps the palace?</i>&quot; Which palace?
3) What do you consider &quot;lovely&quot;? Posh modern/minimalist, or Victorian chintz, or Clubby w/ paneling, w/ Views, Small, Large . . . . whatever

We like the Rubens at the Palace. The rate is reasonable for what you get. This includes a full breakfast and the location is great. The rooms are large and it has a good bar and restaurant in the hotel. The staff is very helpful. That would be my suggestion. The only is they may already be booked for November.

Have a good trip.
