There are some hotels that just get 'it' right, and Dukes is one. Of course that is only if you want what we want which is: A quiet but convenient location, friendly but efficient staff, no fuss, immaculate, comfortable and spacious rooms, luxurious bathrooms with good quality toiletries, an atmosphere of opulence without bling, service of the first order, night...

Dukes Hotel boasts not only an excellent location but the happy combination of modern conveniences and a 19th century ambience. The clientele are smartly dressed and sophisticated for the most part, and the extremely popular bar is renowned for its translations of the Martini and other cocktails. The staff at all levels is well-trained and quickly responds to any reasonable... More

We decided on a fantastic treat for my daughter and I to spend some quality time together, in London, and not having to rush back home. Dukes was the perfect answer. In the middle of Mayfair tucked away is this jewel of a hotel. We had so many plans to go out and once we arrived we didn't want to... More

I have stayed at this hotel several times. It is not just a great hotel at a great location which to me are basics in the search for a good hotel, this hotel offers something special and unique that can be be described as a "home away from home".

We stayed for a night at Dukes and a wonderful time; wonderful room; wonderful food; great staff. You would never know you were in central London once you step inside Dukes; but outside very convenient site near St. James' Palace and Piccadilly. Highly recommended.

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
