Subject: London accommodations, etc

Well I turn 50 next week and hubby and I are going to go to London next month to celebrate. We are not brand new to traveling but fairly new to overseas.

We will arrive in London from Los Angeles at 3 PM Friday April 15th and return home, leaving London on the early afternoon flight Monday, April 18th.

We are looking for a clean hotel (can't imagine wanting a dirty one ! ), in a nice part of town. Recommendations?

We are looking to do the "London experience", so what are your recommendations for "must sees" times to go, best days.

We are not into artsy things, we do not need restaurant recommendations.

Best recommendation for getting around?
