Okay, guys, I need some confidence. Now the 4 star Regent's Park/Camden Lock that seems to be the same price as the HI Camden Lock is offering "no smoking hotel" as one of the amenities. Otherwise it is a same match for what we thought was the HI Camden Lock last week. The South Bank hotel is still the same, but again, I got a letter from Hotwire, stating they were giving me a partial refund on a prior HI Express purchase, because it should now be a 2.5, not a 3 star hotel. SOMEONE PLEASE TELL ME WHAT TO DO! Usually I just jump right on a bargain, but for some reason, I'm really hesitant this time. This will be my first and probably only trip to London with my daughter and her friends. Thanks BTW - I requested two rooms for four adults and four children arriving 21 Feb 2009 for five nights, departing on 26 Feb 2009. What I really want is the Marriott County Hall for a HI Express price- oh well, I can dream, can't I?
