    London recommendatios

    I am planning a trip to London and this will be our first visit there. I am looking for some ideas for dining and convenient neighborhoods for hotels. We would prefer a small really nice hotel. Thanks in advance for any info!

    A small hotel that we love is near the Palace - Hotel 41 -- a real jewel for a short or long stay. We stayed there during the London Olympics and loved the cosy rooms, staff and the neighborhood.

    We stayed at the Berkeley last summer during Wimbledon and really enjoyed the hotel and neighborhood. Check out the Ottolenghi family of restaurants for dining.

    We usually stay at the Hotel Russell, a grand old dame of a hotel in Bloomsbury just around the corner from the Russell Square Tube and within walking distance of the British Museum. We really like the neighborhood.

    We had an amazing dinner at Gordon Ramsey's Maze. Scored a tour of the kitchen as well..so cool.

    We stayed at the Intercontinental Park Lane, not a boutique but very nice modern hotel in a great location.

    The Chelsea Physics Garden is phenomenal if your into gardening and a great place for tea on a fine day. Also don't miss the Borough Market. Go hungry!

    Thanks so much for all of your replies. I can do some Googling and look at a map for reference points. We are hoping to visit London for a few days and then take the Eurostar to Paris for a few more days. I love anticipating a vacation!
