Since November 2015, the British Pound has dropped against the US $, down from $1.53 to $1.43 to the £1. Against the Euro, the collapse is even more marked – from EUR1.43 to EUR1.30. This all makes London much more of a bargain than it has been for a number of years.
Of course, it makes leaving the UK much more expensive. I’m personally looking for cheaper hotels when visiting the US and Europe this year in case the dire predictions for the British economy come true. Time to move from Park Hyatt’s to Hyatt Place’s – well perhaps it is time. For elite status, a stay is a stay, regardless of revenue. Just makes it harder to make lifetime status of course!
