Default Need advice on hotels in London and Barcelona

OK.. I need your help ... suggestions on hotels in London, England and Barcelona. Great location, and facility, is just as, if not more, important than price.

Have you checked out the "Europe for less" promotion that Crowne Plaza & Holiday Inn are offering? It's advertised as $99/night or less. Uk uses British pounds. The conversion is $1.46us = 1 British pound sterling. We were able to get a room in Southampton, but not at the $99 savings. After taxes and addons it came to about $144. We still saved though. The web fares wre quoting 120BPS=$175 BEFORE addons. There is a 2 night minimum stay requirement.
Here's the web sit......www.sixcontinentshotels.com
or the toll free # to Holiday Inn.....1-800-Holiday
# to Crowne Plaza 1-800-2Crowne
Good luck!!!

If you are staying in London the Crowne Plaza St. James is lovely. If you're able to get a special rate I recommend it very highly. It's very convenient to attractions and has a wonderful ambiance.

Cheers,
Michelle B.

Kuki: We like the Colon in Barcelona (there are two--choose the one fronting on the cathedral, which is worth a visit in itself. If you are there on a Sunday overlooking the square, you will be entertained by bands and Catalonian dancing. It's not far from Las Ramblas and in the Gotic quarter and was quite reasonable three years ago.
