The hotel is close to a Tube stop and that makes it especially convenient. It is located in a very nice area, close to embassies and other business. The staff was fantastic and went out of their way to assist me.

A hotel that makes you feel very good, with excellent staff, quality in service. Not only has it a very good location, it is close to the emblematic Buckingham Palace, next to the St. James metro, very close to everything!

On arrival we were greeted by a very polite friendly member of the reception team. We had arrived very early and it was no trouble to take out bags.

I loved this hotel. The staff was very friendly, great and clean rooms, and the breakfast was amazing. With just a couple minutes walk to both bus stop and Buckingham Palace, the location was also very convenient. Will book this hotel again next time.

The excellent location of St James's Court manages to cater equally for business and leisure. We have stayed here three times now and always allocated an excellent room with good amenities. Only eaten in 'Bank' on one occasion but rated the food highly. One criticism would be the price of breakfast!

Staying in Westminster

Neighborhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise 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.
