The Marriott is actually 14 miles from the airport in the middle of the countryside. There is an airport Hilton much closer.

Hmm... STN is a half-hour trip from central London (well, Liverpool Street tube station), so I'd personally stay in a hostel (£10.50 a night) and then catch a tube and train to STN. A single train trip costs £8, and a single tube journey costs £1.20 I think (or £1.50 or something).

True, hostels are cheaper and usually a fun experience.

Too right! I'm all for them - they're great - but then I am 21. I highly recommend The Generator - it's always voted in the top 10 worldwide - and is very clean, comfortable, friendly, it's in a superb location (a 2 min walk from Russell Square), etc. etc. Importantly, it's also cheap - my bed cost £10.50. That's expensive compared to what you can get in India (I stayed in places about £1 per night), but damn good for London. Also, there's a three-hour happy hour, during which pints and spirts are only £1.

Are you only 21?? Damn... I thought you were older because you really know alot of those things you write about!! I must say I really respect you for that.

Back to the Topic
As much as i love staying at hotels, but I must agree with Horus and Pe@rson about that one. Hostels are really great. I have been staying in a youth hostel in NYC and London before. That was really great because you meet a lot of other young people as well, and not those business men/women and Mr & Mrs Johnson on their weekend or holiday that you usually meet at a hotel.

There are loads of hotels within a taxi ride of the airport. On site as has been stated is a Hilton (not cheap), There is also a Welcome Lodge at the service area that a lot of my clients use which is at the junction of the M11 only 5 mins from the terminal. Thats £75 RO per room. A little further away is Briggens House at Stanstead Abbotts, Moat House and The Green Man at Harlow. Or like Pe@rson stated travel in to London and stay at the hostels or even the Imperial Hotel on Russell Square. A Twin/Double is only £92 B&B or a single room is £73 at Imperial or its sister hotel the President is £69 B&B

If you require any further help, let me know.

Regards

Stu

And you call that cheap? Gees! That's very expensive. I wouldn't pay £92 if I was a millionnaire!

What a bloody waste of money! After all, a hotel room is merely where you sleep and wash. Unless you're the most unadventureous person, you'll be out of the room for the majority of the day, and then return, get ready for bed and sleep. Why spend huge amounts? It's very sad. Hostels are best.  Smile
