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.

We truly loved our stay at the Trafalgar St James during these crazy times. They made us feel very welcome as soon as we walked though the doors. The steward that helped with our loads of luggage was so very thoughtful as we explained my daughter had to sadly cut her study abroad short and return home. The staff took care of our every whim. The room was very clean and extremely comfortable. The food, room service and daily breakfast was delicious.The location was the perfect launching point for our daily miles of strolling and seeing the sights. The view from the Rooftop sky bar was gorgeous!! We only wish we could have stayed much longer. We will absolutely return in the future. Thanks to the entire staff at the hotel, Everyone was friendly, understanding and delightful.

Hotel's Favorite
You can't beat the location - directly on Trafalgar Square and within walking distance of the major London attractions. This Art Deco hotel, completely renovated two years ago, is this epitome of style and class and can compete with the best hotels in London. The rooms were spacious and well decorated with all the amenities you would expect in a hotel in this class. About the only difference between the Trafalgar St. James and a Michelin 5 Star hotel is that they didn't turn down the bed and leave a chocolate on the pillow! The staff was friendly and helpful, the doorman never missed greeting us. The Roof Garden was closed for renovations while we were there but we did have breakfast in the first floor lounge/bar. Most surprising was the value for the price! I would expect to pay a lot more for a hotel like this. I and my 2 friends highly recommend The Trafalgar St. James to anyone traveling to London.

My family and I greatly enjoyed staying at this hotel. The location is extremely convenient to many of the tourist sights, and catching a taxi or Uber was a breeze. Customer service was beyond incredible, they really bent over backwards to handle any needs or requirements. Unlimited usage of minibar including bottled water. And the included breakfasts were a delight, with so many options presented in the buffet. They even offered a favorite dish of mine, shokshouka, which is a tomato and egg middle eastern dish. If I had to nitpick, I would recommend that a desk be included in the room, as the small table provided was not adequate. Moreover, the 6 foot long bathtub (no shower head) in my opinion is a waste of valuable real estate in the bathroom. The stand inside shower stall was too small for me to fit in adequately, it was not comfortable. But overall I loved this hotel, and would definitely stay again on a subsequent visit.

A beautifully refurbished property with great access, elegant rooms, sumptuous dining and a wonderful rooftop experience. The Diamond member room upgrade was pleasant and the complimentary breakfast at Rockwell sumptuous. Easy access to many London locations - felt very welcome as well received by the friendly staff.

We enjoyed our 6 night stay at the Trafalgar St. James in London. It was clean, quiet, I felt safe and it was very conveniently located within walking distance of several London attractions (Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey, Houses of Parliament, 10 Downing St., Scotland Yard, London Eye, National Portrait Gallery, National Art Galleries, Thames River, Big Ben and more). It is also just across the street from the Tube (London subway-which was surprisingly easy, fast and clean). Just outside of the hotel were several bus stops. The staff were very professional and very friendly. The concierge contacted us (we did not have to initiate the contact) the day prior to our check out to see if we needed any accommodations to get back to the airport (which we did and they helped us with). There was a FREE stock of chocolate, soft drinks and water in our refrigerator which was refilled daily. Upon arrival, our room had robes, slippers, a hairdryer,a safe, a refrigerator, a coffee pod machine (with delicious espressos and cappuccinos), a tea kettle with several types of tea. There were several plugs and several USB ports for charging our accessories. We had plenty of closet and drawer space. We ate at the rooftop restaurant-the hostess was very helpful- they were busy that night but she still managed to get us an outside table with spectacular views of the London skyline, and the food and service was great. There was a spacious shower but no bath. Our room did not have a great view (but we didn’t spend much time sitting in the room looking out of the window). I would definitely stay here again.
