Hot tips traveling in London
World Travel Business Elite guest blogger Diane Rudis recently visited London. Her blog offers up some hot tips when traveling in London.
September was perfect weather to go to London. The whole week was unseasonably warm, 60 – 65 degrees each day. Should you arrive at Heathrow and need transportation to London, be aware that many cabs will not accept credit cards. Those that would accept credit cards, charged a 10% credit card fee. Taking the train into the city is the best most economical option.
We stayed at the Double Tree near Victoria Station, close to a metro and train stop. If you are a business traveler and have time to see some sites while on business, this location or one in London near both the tube and train will be an ideal way for you to squeeze business in with pleasure.
The Double Tree was a nice, cozy hotel, one I consider off the beaten path which was great to have less traffic and enjoy the stay. The breakfasts were good – hot and cold options and you could custom order your omelet ingredients. The staff was very helpful in tending to our needs. The lounge was a great place to unwind and have a drink after a long day.
It was an ideal location so that we could ride the tube across town and also get on a train to go to Hampton Court and Windsor Castle. It’s also within walking distance to Buckingham Palace. Tours for the Palace are offered only certain dates (my guess that dates are when the queen is away on holiday), so we were fortunate our plans coincided with the time that it was open. more
