On a hunch, I started checking hotel rates at LondonTown.com
to see if I could get better rates than the ones the travel agents and other websites were finding for us. I checked this hotel that my mom really wants to stay at, called 41
, and it said that they could give us a rate of 106 pounds per night, a 55% discount! I also checked The Rubens at the Palace
which actually had the same rate, and since they got back to us, we booked it. I actually like 41 better, but The Rubens looks really nice too, and it includes a buffet breakfast. I'm getting really excited about flying and staying in style while in London. Plus, with a room rate like that, my mom and I are gonna get to see a couple plays and still have enough money for some shopping! It's gonna be fun.
