My daughter will be attending a 5 week summer acting course at BADA (62-64 Gower Street, London). I plan on coming over with her 8 days before she gets to check into her dorm at Astor College (99 Charlotte Street). I just want to make sure she gets settled and gets familiar with the area. There is a quick 10 minute walk between BADA and her room at Astor College. I don't know if I should stay with close proximity of the school or should venture a little bit out possible for better area etc.... And I am trying to use my points as a Hiltons Honors member. So far my selection has been:
Hilton Euston (looks to be near)
Doubletree West End
Doubletree Victoria (this sounds good as we are coming in from Gatwick and hotel is across street from Rail)
Hilton Islington (depending if I can get it on lower points as they are now booked)
Doubletree Ealing (low points, but is it too far by tube)
So basically if the hotel is further away is it easy access to the school and college?
Oh one last thing, My dates are July 13- July 22nd but I plan on spending the last night at Hampton Gatwick so I don't have to rush too much with a morning flight.
We plan on doing touristy stuff and hopefully taking in a couple of shows since her passion is theater. Thanks in advance!!
