Trip planning-- done!

I've been trying to Priceline a hotel in London without success. There was one area that I really wanted to stay in, and I've been looking there and one zone to the north, increasing my bid a few bucks each day to see if I could core something.

Tonight after failing to get either of those zones, I decided to try one to the south. I wound up scoring what looks to be a perfectly serviceable if not spectacular hotel near St. James Park and Buckingham Palace for $110/night. I'm pretty happy with that.

Just to get everything out of the way, I booked a train ticket from Glasgow to London. The difference in price between first class and standard was pretty much exactly what it would cost to get wifi in standard-- it's free in first. That pretty much makes it a no-brainer.
