London Hotels - Advice Needed
My husband and I will be in London at the end of April and will be staying 6 nights.

Would love to get everyone's thoughts on hotels we've been thinking about:

Rathbone Hotel
Berners Hotel
Darlington Hotel
Thistle Marble Arch
K + K Hotel George

Has anyone stayed at any of these places before? Other suggestions? We're looking at 3-4 star hotels w/ plenty of resturants and pubs in walking distance.

The Thistle Marble Arch has a good location and the rooms are newly renovated - also, they're larger than most European hotels. The K& K George is good, too, with its beautiful Victorian building. Also, check out the Vanderbilt or the Harrington Hall.

The European 3-star hotels are often like the U.S. 2-star hotels, so I would recommend going with a 4-star in London.

Have a great time!

Best Regards,

I think Berner's is great -- a real London type hotel, with great tradition and excellent service. I think there are several small rooms, so try to ask for a "superior" or just for a larger room. Good luck.

We got a good deal through Priceline by bidding $115 for a 4* in the Soho/Mayfair area. Got the Waldorf/Hilton at $115 plus tax.

Take a look at the Reubens at the Palace
