London hotels under $150

I haven't been back to London in more than two years, and all this time away, it kills me. Two of my closest friends and former London flatmates are going back in a week and I'm beyond jealous. But after the exchange rate went all wonky a few years ago, travel to London just wasn't a practical/reasonable option. Things have gotten a bit better lately, and there's this great story in the NY Times today on hotels under $150/night in Europe... Maybe it's time for a trip-slash-homecoming across the pond.
