London-Adjacent Cheap Hotels, Circa 2017

The $32 billion Crossrail rail system was given the green light by Her Majesty, and plans are now underway to begin building sometime in 2010. Vivisecting the railways already in place, the East/West Crossrail will transport 200 million passengers a year, connecting Heathrow directly to central London, and shuttling many a tourist through Bedfordshire, Cambridgeshire, Essex, Hertfordshire, Norfolk, and Suffolk. In addition to relieving pressure on the Tube, this opens the doors for travelers to save a pound or two in boutique hotels that will no doubt spring up along the lines.
