My husband, myself and our two teens will be in London for 5 nights this summer. My husband has some recent mobility issues and needs to use a walker to get around. He can climb stairs if he has a handrail to use to help stabilize himself,however, I am looking for the most convenient place to stay to minimize stair use.
I haven't planned a detailed itinerary yet, but we would like to see the general typical tourist areas. (Plus, my kids really want to see the Dr. Who Tardis.) I also think we will take a day or half day tour to Stonehenge and Windsor Castle.
Someone, I wish I knew who to credit, posted an answer to a question with a link to a website regarding accessibility information. I looked up a few hotels and the Crowne Plaza near the Blackfriars station had a very high accessibility rating. Other areas I am considering are the County Hall area or the Park Plaza Victoria. I am open to other ideas. (I saw the original post with the link while on my cell phone at work and I can not find it now to look up other hotels and tube stations.)
A lift to get to the room
A walk in shower (We don't need a wheelchair accessible room if the hotel has a walk in shower stall rather than a tub/shower combo.)
Prefer to be close to a tube station without a lot of stairs to deal with and/or within walking distance to some of the touristy places.
Since we will probably have to reserve 2 hotel rooms, I am trying to keep the total cost of the rooms to less than 300 pounds total per night. (Less is always better, and may do more if needed, I am mostly trying to find a balance between convenience and budget.)
Thanks for the any and all tips!
