Look at Citadines - they don't go through deals but are cheap enough so you may not need to. This is a chain of 'apartment hotels'.

Also remember that you can always book two rooms with connecting internal doors - 90% of hotels have some or all of their rooms like this.

We stayed at the Thistle Westminster earlier this yr, v nice hotel, booked thru hotelnet (which is a gd place to find accom for 5) however they don't seem to offer the hotel any more. It may be worth giving the Thistle a call direct, but you won't get it discounted though.

I will have about ?1,000 in deals when the next vouchers come out and Im happy to spend the lot on 3 nights in a nice london hotel for us, Im thinking we are going to have go for the adjoining rooms rather than one room, trust me to have 3 kids :).

PLEASE remember to use tripadvisor before you book. Just because a hotel has 4 or 5 stars does not mean, especially in London, that it has seen a coat of paint in the last 20 years, yet alone had anything resembling a furniture refurbishment. There are some decent Hilton and Marriott properties available through Deals, but also some stinkers.

If you're travelling on a weekend, there is a brand new Hilton at Canary Wharf and a brand new Hilton at Tower Bridge / London Bridge. These are both cheap at the weekend due to their location in business areas and, because they are new, are very nice inside. Both offer very easy access to the West End on the Jubilee Line. There is also the Marriott West India Quay at Canary Wharf which is very nice and only 3-4 years old - again, this discounts heavily at weekends so your vouchers will go furthern.

We recently stayed at the West India Quay Marriott in Canary Wharf. There were 5 of us (2 adults and 3 kids aged 10, 8 and 2). We had a family room which consisted of 2 double beds and a cot for the little 'un. We stayed for 2 nights and the cost was ?148 per night. I was extremely impressed with the hotel, and there was a rail link from right outside the door direct to the underground stations. If we were to go to London again we would definitely stay at this hotel.

A stupid question, ?148 in deals, ?444 altogether - did this include breakast?

Also how far in advance did you book?

Its a bit steep, but it depends when you went. A Deluxe Room with 2 double beds, including breakfast, is ?150 inc VAT for 2 on Sat 17 Nov. For some reason it won't give me a price for 4 in the room but I imagine it would be ?170. This is for paying cash. ?72 per night using Deals is therefore a 60% discount. This is a very flash five star - it is not a glorified Travelodge like some Marriotts .....!

It would be ?444 for 3 nights and yes, breakfast was included. Even the kids breakfast was included and they ate more than we did! They couldn't believe they had chocolate chip muffins for breakfast so after the bacon, eggs, mushrooms, toast, fried bread, tomatoes, beans and black pudding they had a chocolate muffin, Danish pastry and several glasses of fruit juice. And they are only 10 and 8 years old and my 8 year old is as thin as a pencil.

We booked it about 6 weeks in advance.

Travelodge London, City Road.
Only ?29 a night, you could book 2 rooms for the 5 of you.
If you book breakfast aswell kids eat free.
This Travelodge only opened on 1st Oct 2007 and is themed towards 2012 olympics. Rooms look really fresh. It's situated behind the Barbican.
Have a look:

Hilton Waldorf is walkable from most of the theatres, which makes for a nicer evening - no need to try to hunt for a cab. Not a bad hotel either.

I like the idea of a Hilton Hotel as they send out a gift card, if I have read right, which would be something to put under the tree for him
thanks
