The hotel is well situated just a short walk from Piccadilly Circus tube station. The staff were welcoming and the foyer and bar set a good tone for the rest of the hotel. The rooms are opulent and plush, have lovely bathrooms and beds so comfortable you don't want to get off of them. The rooms are well equipped with the usual things you expect at the Sofitel (ipod dock, flat screen TV, shoe cleaning and sowing kit etc). The AC is a little severe however and we both had a poor nights sleep as a result, if I had stayed a second night it would have been switched off. Room service was excellent and prompt with lots of attention to detail, as you would expect. The bar is very good and the service welcoming and friendly. The breakfast and dinner were both very nice.
The only slightly unfortunate thing was, having booked a "romantic break" package for myself and partner for a nice night away, the desk person checking us in proceeded to show my partner the bill (for her to add her signature to mine) and then informed her we would have champagne waiting in our room...surprise over, cost revealed... A small mistake but a little disappointing for a hotel with excellent attention to detail everywhere else.
Overall the experience was very good and the hotel is perfect for a romantic break in London. If you are looking for a little luxury, the Sofitel St. James comes highly recommended.
