Subject: Central London hotel
Dear Carol Bailey and Baerbel,

I checked the Regent Palace and unfortunately it was all booked up for the time when I will be there. It looked like an interesting place to stay at though.

I found a hotel near the tube - Lancaster Gate (not far from Oxford St.) for $95, it's the Scancourt Hotel.

I will check out the Mitre House Hotel...

Thanks so much for your input,
