Sending Husband on Holiday...Need help with $$ Hotels, West End, London

I gave my husband a Rick Steves' Tour for a gift, he will be in London on a layover for 2 nights. As he has so little time, I think it would be grand if he stayed in the HEART of things which I believe might be the West End, London. Can anyone suggest a Moderately Priced Hotel or B&B for him? He will be on foot with luggage using the Tube from Heathrow.
Many Thanks!

When I was in London I used Hotwire.com and was lucky to get the Hilton Wardorf for $110 a night (or 50 pounds)
I was literally steps from the theatre district, near the Producers, Lion King and more.

HOtwire won't give you the specific hotel til you prepay, but if you're looking a good deal, I recommend hotwire. I Sort by the Stars rather than price then pay the lowest price for the highest stars.

The Hilton Wardorf was a 3 1/2 star hotel, BTW

Terri, Premium Travel Inns are still a good option. The one at County Hall is only a short walk from Waterloo Stn. which is where the Heathrow Express or the tube will take him. He only has to follow the signs to the Eye which is right next door. It's just over the bridge from Big Ben, Westminster Abby, Parliament etc. and only a few blocks more to Trafalgar Sq. Laurel

I think Laurel means Premier (not Premium) Travel Inn County Hall. I agree though...stayed there last year, the location is incredible and I don't think you will find a better price for a comparable room.

I wanted to thank you for taking the time to reply to my post! I went to the Premier Inn website and booked my husband a room at the Premier Inn, County Hall.

I sincerely appreciate your kindness; every random act of kindness makes this a more beautiful, peaceful world to live in.

Warmly,
Terri

Good choice, location is incredible! If he likes to walk he will be able to see so much, it is so fun to walk over the Thames. I personally loved Trafalgar Square, if he likes history have him read up on Lord Nelson.
