July 21-30, 2014: I had called to confirm our reservation a week prior, & was told by the lady that I spoke with that we would be upgraded from a Classic King to an Executive King at no extra charge when I told her we would be arriving on our 40th wedding anniversary. It took a while for that to... More

We stayed 4 nights in August and enjoyed every minute. The service was impeccable and the facilities excellent. The hotel was full and it was a weekend but we did not experience any delays at breakfast in the mornings. Our room was beautifully furnished although the bathroom was on the small size. The towels were luxurious and the toiletries were... More

After a long flight from Australia, we chose to travel to the hotel via train from Heathrow and found accessibility excellent, after one change to the District line it was a short walk from St James's Park station. The hotel foyer was beautifully appointed and our welcome on arrival extremely pleasant. We arrived 6 hours too early for check-in but... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the Taj. Arriving late on a Friday evening we were checked in swiftly and received an upgrade. Our room was newly refurbished and, although small, was lovely with everything we needed. The bathroom was beautiful! Breakfast was great and the choice plentiful, the only downside was the long queue on Sunday morning but... More

We chose this hotel based on Trip Advisor reviews and its excellent location in central London (Westminster) With no prior experience with Taj Hotels, we reserved two Classic rooms (one double and one king on line and basically hoped for the best) through Booking.com. Our experience turned out to be fabulous: we were treated very well and courteously upon check-in,... More

This is a quaint hotel if you like wandering around a rabbit warren of corridors to find your room, I felt hemmed in and unsafe, suffocated by the lack of air in the labyrinth. Clearly this is an old building and it is difficult to modernise. Bathroom was crammed. Bed was excellent but very short, staff were friendly and accommodating.... More

Booked two rooms through booking.com, opulent reception area & court yard. But rooms didn't live up to expectation, first room very small tucked into a corner at the court yard ...could hardly see day light.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
In a country that values understatement, St. James' Court is an English classic typifying the concealed charm of one of Britain's finest hotels. The custom of St. James’ Court, A Taj Hotel is the distinctive choice for more than service with a smile. With a distinguished pedigree shaped over more than a century, this discreet Victorian masterpiece with its famous Shakespearean Courtyard is perfectly placed between Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament in a historic enclave marking the centre of power. Crisp and elegant, with an easy charm that’s reserved, yet attentive, we strive to make each visit more pleasurable and memorable. Exceeding the expectations of today’s discerning traveller, St. James' Court is a slice of the past served up on a contemporary platter. ... more   less
