Actually, I don't think of myself as being able to afford the
Waldorf and in London we either stay with friends or get a B&B
sort of place. There's no need to be flip about this. Forget the
Walorf, there is also a difference between staying at one of the
standard hotels or at one of the converted homes near Victoria
Your idotic comment that "My question appears to be stupid
because a trip in the US can be much cheaper if one is staying at
the YMCA rather than the Waldorf..." Your trip in the USA can
also be cheaper using hostels instead of Motel 6. So the question
remains, what do you think is "affordable"? It's almost
impossible to answer your original question without some sort of
guidance from you.
"For a week or two vacation" provides no guidance at all. We
aren't even informed what sort of meals you would like, but you
still expect us to tell you how much it would cost. Get a grip.
I do know that the prices on menus look just fine at first glance
until you realize they're in pounds and not dollars.
