the last time i went, i stayed at the Metropolitan Hotel - very boutiquey - but it's nothing any different than anywhere else. if you like Nobu (i don't), there's one downstairs. there's also a private club downstairs, that is open to hotel guests (i was too drunk to really function by the time i was ready to go so no idea if it's good or not.)

london is so big, and getting around is soooo expensive, you're pretty much screwed no matter where you stay.

is this your first time to london?

the Mandarin Oriental is a good location - somewhat central to a lot of shopping and it's nice to be by a park. still, just be prepared to walk.

Hilton Green Park worked for me nicely last year paid with Amex points. Close to Buck house if your sight seeing, and of course Big Ben, Parliament. Walk the other direction and you get to Oxford street. Picadilly Circus, Leicester Square are a little bit of a walk but just up the road. Walk along Bond Street for the high end stuff, again very close. You would be in the Mafair district this is the equivalent of Boardwalk. (Think Monopoly)

Berkley Square has a few nice car dealerships if you want to take a stroll that way.

When getting around London walk or take the underground it is so much cheaper and easier. The entrance to the underground is just a block or so away from the Hilton. The Ritz is just a couple of blocks away too.
From the airport take the express train into London, and then take a taxi if you have a lot of luggage. You will save a ton of cash.

I've walked a lot of london and like everyone said I'd recommend the underground. It is very easy to use and get around.

i frkn hate the underground - screw the oyster card and stuff like that, its nice for tourist but if you stay like 2 month you are screwed using public transportation there. Try to use the bus whereever you can its better than the tube.

:lol:
