Rates start around £88 for a non-flexible reservation if you book 11 months ahead. That more than makes up for the thin amenities of this economy brand, which has some two dozen properties in Greater London. It’s nicer than the American Travelodge brand, which isn’t related to it. Expect king-size beds, bathtub and shower, TV (but no phone, hair dryer, or toiletries), paid in-room movies, a wardrobe, at least one power outlet, and a desk. Breakfast, if your property offers it, is £8.50 more (kids 16 and under free). “Family rooms” have a pullout couch for two kids but cost the same as a double. Hotels marked “New Style” have just undergone renovation and are like fresh hotels.
