DEALS FOR TRAVELLERS
Saturday 22 August 1998
London's newest hotel is, like the Travel Inn mentioned last week, in County Hall on the South Bank. But the Marriott (0171-928 5200) is more upmarket, offering Thames views from the majority of its 200 rooms, and a 25-metre swimming pool. The official opening takes place in a month. Until then, a room costs pounds 193.87; this will increase by pounds 23.50 after the opening. (The reason for these non-round numbers is that the hotel quotes prices exclusive of VAT; we have added it for you.)
If you are taking up the the Silver Jubilee Walk suggestion (see above), you will pass the Marriott en route. Within, and in the former GLC library, now called the Leader's Bar, Champagne Afternoon Tea is served each day between 3pm and 6pm. The price, including VAT, is pounds 22.
The Dublin Literary Pub Crawl takes place every evening at 7.30pm, and on Sundays at noon and 7.30pm. Meet upstairs at the Duke in Duke Street; call 00 353 1454 0228 for further details.
