West End Show + Hotel help please.

I want to get tickets for a West End Show for my hubby for Xmas. Im thinking of Les Miserables.

I want to book a hotel for 2 nights and would like some help on this please.

He is disabled and walks with crutches so Im looking for somewhere easy to travel from and to before and after the show. Ive looked at a nearby hotel and its giving me a price of over £600 for 2 nights so obviously I want to find somewhere on the outskirts with easy tube access, not to many changes.

we are travelling down from the North and even though we are conversant with some areas of South London I am clueless with the centre. So I would like recommendations of where we coul consider staying thats within easy tube access but not city centre prices.

Any help much appreciated.

Thank you for reading.

    I am no expert on London but I previously went with my mum to see Billy Elliott - we stayed 2 nights in the travelodge covent garden, it was perfectly adequate for our requirements, nothing flash but we were only there to sleep. a quick google suggests it's half a mile walk from the queen's theatre. it was also central to lots of other places and we had a great time. but if it's a special occasion you may want to stay somewhere more upmarket. I remember reading a tip about the travelodge which was to book a family room, it was in a nicer, quieter part of the hotel, the room was larger with a sofa(bed) and cost no more than the standard room. this was about 5 yrs ago so it may not be the case now. have fun!

    It may have changed but the Covent Garden Travelodge is split across two buildings across the street from each other - one on High Holburn and one on Drury Lane. All family rooms used to be in the High Holburn one - and you'd want this one if you have difficulties walking as it's a flat entrance straight off the street, whilst the other part has steps to the main entrance (although I think there may be separate disabled access).

    We've stayed there a few times and the other good point if you have difficulty walking is that there are always loads of black cabs around to flag down. It's about 5-10 minute walk at normal walking pace to the nearest tubes (Covent Garden or Holburn) but we didn't use the tube at all - for two people, we reckoned that a taxi from Euston wasn't much more expensive.
