I had been somewhat nervous about my ability to get around on trains and the London Underground but we got from Heathrow to our hotel without incident. We took the Heathrow Express train to Paddington Station and then took the Underground to our hotel which was about two minutes from the Lancaster Gate Underground station. The Underground portion of our journey involved one transfer at Nottinghill Gate station and once we had figured out the maps and directions I was very comfortable for the balance of our stay in taking London transit.
Because of the lateness of our arrival no restaurants in our immediate area were open and there was limited room service. But I was able to get a pizza (frozen like McCain's) for $24 and a bottle of wine for $40 delivered to our room.
And I toasted my own success in getting us to our hotel safe and sound.
