I've stayed in several Sofitels, and one thing that connects them all is they feel warm, comfortable and safe. Simple things you might think, but not all (higher priced) hotels achieve this.
First impressions are important. The lobby is an impressive space,and it (and the whole hotel) smells good. Seriously.
Our room was warm and had plenty of space; not universally the case in higher priced central London hotels.If my wife could have got the ridiculously comfy bed in her luggage the Sofitel would be missing one now. Excellent bathroom and Hermes toiletries in abundance.
We didn't use the restaurant proper but the bar food was excellent, as were our cocktails.
It's a 5 minute walk from the NPG and National Gallery, 2 minutes from nearest tube, etc. Central++ and the whole of London very few bus or tube changes away.
A great gym, with no annoying health questionnaire to complete, with the latest machines and spotlessly maintained.
Flawless.Bravo Sofitel St James.See you next time.More
