Sofitel St James was top of the line for my husband and I's recent trip to London. It was in the most perfect location, walking distance between Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Parliament, and Westminister Abbey. The other side is between Trafalger square and Picadilly Circus. Covent Garden is up the street too! Great area for shopping as well, designer and department stores galore! There are 3 tube (subway/underground) stations within a 2 minute walk. It was perfect for someone seeing the sights. The staff and conceirge were very helpful. We got in at 9am and were shown our room immediatly. The concierge made dinner reservations for the same night (our anniversary) and even told the restaurant it we were celebrating so they brought us a special dessert! He also helped with our train schedule for a trip to Dover.
The room was spacious and only lacking a lot of closet space. They had 2 small "wardrobes" but they didn't hold much. The bell boy did offer another luggage rack but I used the large windowsill as a makeshift dresser. The bed was so comfortable, lots of down pillows, down comforter and down overlay on the mattress. The room came stocked with robes and slippers. The bathroom toiletries were Hermes and although they smelled nice, were too strong for me.
The Rose Lounge was a perfect spot for traditional afternoon tea, complete with a harp player. The tea was literally bottomless, and the sandwiches, scones and french pastries were divine. We did not dine in any other of the hotels restaruants. All in all I would reccomend this hotel to anyone and stay there again next time I was in London.
