We currently have a reservation (for a family of 3) at the Crowne Plaza in Kensington but are now thinking that because we have show tickets for most of the nights we are there that it would be better for us to stay closer to the middle of town. We currently have tickets to see Phantom, Blood Brothers and Avenue Q and will probably add Lion King or a Christmas themed show.
I found The Grand by reading forum posts and thought that the location and the price seemed ideal but am a little hesitant because the reviews appear to be a little luck warm. The reviews that I read imply that the service is impersonal. The cost for the room is about $50 more for the Grand than it is for CP. Has anyone stayed at the Grand lately?
It seems like it will be an inconvenience to go from sightseeing each afternoon back to CP to rest then back to the west end to see a show. Am I wrong about that?
Are there any other 4* hotels near the theatre district in the $250 - $350 price range that will accommodate 3 people in one room?
We will be in London from December 12th through the 17th.
