By now, most travelers wanting to sneak across the pond for the 2012 Summer Olympic Games are waving the white flag of defeat. But today, there's hope. British Airways launched London for Free, a promotion inspired by the grand events that gives travelers who book a round-trip flight through British Airways for travel between July 27th and September 30th two free nights in a four-star hotel. Choose from some great places to rest your head: DoubleTree London Westminster, Rembrandt Hotel, Tavistock Hotel, Royal National Hotel, the President, and the Astons Apartments. London for Free ends on July 25th, just in time for the Opening Ceremonies.
