Just reporting back. We decided we'd let Princess book our air and hotel in London and got what we think was a good deal. We stayed at the Grosvenor House (a Marriott hotel). The cost for two nights was reasonable.

The hotel restaurant's were very expensive. We decided to order from the Room Service menu for breakfast. The "door hanger" listed breakfast as 29 pounds. That seemed pretty expensive, but, for two, what the heck! We had no idea it was 29 pounds each! I think that was the most expensive meal we've ever had .

So we ended up spending $112.00 US for breakfast :o! Luckily, there was a big bag of pastries that we used that evening and the next day.

The moral of this story is to always confirm the cost of any service at a hotel!
