About this Hotel

Price From $90

'Hood Acton, a suburb of terraced houses, with access to both the city center (a 30-minute ride) and Heathrow airport on the Piccadilly Tube line.

The Vibe A pleasant hotel with a modern, minimalist design aesthetic. The glass-and-granite lobby with sweeping curves and the dining room are flooded with natural light.

Rooms The 150 large rooms have blond-wood floors and handsome pine desks, with bright-red throw pillows and curtains for a little personality. All come with slate-floor bathrooms and flat-screen TVs that double as computer monitors (with provided keyboards). Rooms on the top floor overlook the leafy suburbs of West London.

Plus Sofa beds make it easy for a family or group to share a single room; each additional adult only pays a small fee ($31). Eight rooms can accommodate travelers with disabilities.

Minus The hotel's restaurant and bar, Wok Around the World, is one convenient option, but there's generally a lack of shops and restaurants in the immediate vicinity.

Free Wi-Fi? No; available for $12 per day.

Credit Cards Accepted AmEx, MC, Visa.

Details Doubles from $90; some rates include breakfast.
