I had the pleasure of staying at the Sofitel St James recently. I do enjoy staying here, the hotel makes everything very easy. I was on the 6th floor and had a very comfortable room with separate bath and drench shower. The shower in particular was terrific - a huge downpour of hot water and I do like the complimentary Hermes shampoo and shower gel - lovely smell.
The staff are almost invisible but seem to appear by magic when needed, for example I left my room for no more than 30 minutes to nip to the bar for a drink and bed was turned down and fresh toiletries in room upon my return.
As a Silver (and after this stay reaching Gold) hotel club member I enjoy a complimentary drink at the bar - this was beautifully served with complimentary nuts and olives. I also had a small packet of chocolates in my room and a paper awaiting me in the morning.
Checkout painless as ever.
The real secret to this hotel, though, is the soundproofing. I've stayed at loads of other corporate hotels and I've never had as good and undisturbed a sleep as at Sofitel St James.
The only problem I had was the bedside clock was at the incorrect time (45 minutes out) and I couldnt figure out how to change it, but my phone alarm was all I really needed anyway.
Look forward to my return.
