West London Hotel boom and Red 336

Looking along the Uxbridge road in Ealing and West Ealing I was staggered to see that so many of the properties being developed and recently completed are hotels
A 'Premier' Hotel

There was very much a time (and not so long ago) in London where Hotel choice was very limited
and the selection was between the expensive and classy and the type that was more of a 'guest house' than a hotel - the yawning gap between the two extremes was an fathomable chasm.

I recall a time when the Bayswater area of London had more mediocre and over priced 'hotels' than you could shake a stick at - no en-suites and often no catering at all- times thankfully have changed.

In the last 10 years as tourism has continued to boom and travel has become commonplace  in this time  the chasm has been filled and we're in a position now across the capital where functional, clean hotels are found not far from most tube stations.

The shutters are down and they're red
