Thanks for Sharing Reader D. Fury salutes the Strand Palace for its "convenient location." He adds: "If a subway line on London's notoriously breakdown-prone Tube is suddenly closed, you're still within easy walking distance of the theaters, shops, museums, and restaurants of the West End." Reader Terry agrees: "Many of London's major (and best for tourists) bus routes stop in front of the hotel."
