St James Court is a very impressive looking building near to Buckingham Palace and just a short walk from Westminster. We chose this hotel partly based on the excellent reviews, and we were not disappointed. We have stayed in many hotels in London over the years but the service and staff at St James Court were the best we’ve ever... More

Stayed here last night for the first time. I'd been using St Ermins [part of Marriotts Autograph collection]. I had a room on the 7th floor. The hotel was very good. Front check in staff very efficient and polite. The hotel has a very good gym, far better than st ermins. Breakfast was as you would expect from a hotel... More

Really good size 6th floor room with a comfortable double bed, air conditioning and windows that opened. I found if I poked my head out I could see Big Ben and the London Eye, which was a bonus.

Got the room for a great price. The room was far bigger and nicer than I could have imagined.

We stayed two nights at the Taj and were happy to leave. We have an infant and wanted adjoining rooms or a suite with a door.

Only had the one night at this hotel and it was a pleasant stay, helpful staff, situated in a nice convenient area for basing yourself for Buckingham Palace sightseeing and theatre as long as you like walking which I do. Room was clean and had everything for an overnight. Not the cheapest but worth that little bit extra.

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise a place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
