Chose this hotel based on previous reviews. Absolutely great location, walkable to Parliament, Thames, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey and Cathedral, 2 steps from Buckingham Palace, 5 mins from Victoria and Tube. Gorgeous entry courtyard of the St James Court so you do not feel like you are on a Main Street at all.
We had a two bedroom suite with a rollaway bed for the 5 of us. Living room and dining area were large and separate kitchen w Nespresso machine and capsules were an unexpected plus. Washing machine (while I had then, to wash clothes) was convenient too.
Only issue with our suite were the bathrooms which had doors that block the sink so kids can't all get in there together when we're trying to get going.
Also, since there are full kitchens, several guests must have been cooking their own food which permeated the hallways and our room daily. They supplied an air freshener that we ran continuously but didn't hide the strong Indian food odors.
We splurged to stay here so expect to pay a high rate of over 900 pounds a night. Upside was I got the 4th night free so that helped a bit with the average nightly rate.
My kids LOVED this place!
