I am really glad I stumbled across this hotel when looking for a well located room in London. The rate I found on an online site was so good, they must have made a typo! :) Service was great. Room was spacious, comfortable, and nicely appointed. The WiFi was throttled but free at that speed your entire visit, something I did not find in another London property on my trip. The staff was fantastic. Everyone I dealt with was very nice. I was able to arrive early the day I checked in and leave my bags. When I checked in later that night, the bags were waiting in my room. Similarly, when I left, I was able to easily store my luggage until I was ready to pick them up. The location is great. The hotel is not too far from the St. James Underground station or the Victoria train and Underground station. Bus access is readily available just down the street at Victoria Rd. You are only a short walk from Buckingham Palace and the Royal Mews to the north and Westminster Cathedral on the south. If I am ever in London in the future, I would absolutely consider this property again!

We stayed in this wonderful hotel on 28th may. We could not fault anything, the hotel is beautiful, the staff very professional and friendl. The location is very central, within 5 mins walking distance to Buckingham Palace. The food in Banks restaurant overlooking the hotel courtyard was to die for!..
A special thank you to Micky in reservations for the room upgrade to a beautiful suite..we were so thrilled!
We will definately be stating here again.

St.James was recently bought by the India-based Taj Group and that prompted us to book our 4-day stay in London there for a dose of the famous English Hospitality mixed with an Indian flavour. We were not disappointed. Although it was a little difficult booking the room online since their online reservation system was a little quirky, but finally got it through. The hotel is located a stone's throw from the iconic Buckingham Palace, and the royal atmosphere extends to the hotel as well. While its compact and not nearly as large as some of the grand properties of the Taj Group, its service was impeccable and the treatment regal. Right from the time we checked in we felt at home. The daily breakfast was decidedly delicious and the restaurant service of top quality, although in-room dining can be a little on the expensive side. Staying in touch with business back home in India was a breeze thanks to the fast and complimentary wifi provided in the room. Will stay here again when in London without hesitation.

Room Tip: Insist on a room with a view of Buckingham Gate Road, since the back rooms have almost no view.

In spite of leaving the Crowne Plaza Franchise the St James is the best hotel in London for it's Westminster location near Buckingham Palace.Westminster Abbey,Victoria Station,SMMT ,BIS and Department of Transport as well as Churchill's War Rooms and the reopening,in July,War Rooms.
You are welcomed by a team of friendly and helpful concierges with friendly doormen and porters and very friendly reception staff
The Courtyard is a real bonus and the bar and restaurant staff serve great food and drink with a smile. Well appointed rooms with comfortable beds make the experience worth repeating and I will keep on returning to my second home. A M

Whilst the Courtyard is open for business for the summer, we need a prolonged period of good weather so more can enjoy this experience.
