London luxury hotels are now cheaper than a Travelodge? Around the world, five-star hotels are slashing their rates and offering creative packages to entice guests. London's fashionable properties are no exception. One of our favorites, the boutique hotel "41" that's part of Red Carnation's esteemed hotel collection, overlooking the Royal Mews at Buckingham Palace, lets guests live London life to the full with value-added extras.
