St. James’ Court, A Taj Hotel

St. James' Court Hotel in central London is an English classic epitomising the concealed charm of Britain's finest hotels. Since its debut in 1902, the hotel has been patronised by the highest in the land and, today, it continues to retain the sophistication of bygone days. Located in central London, the hotel is just footsteps from Buckingham Palace and St. James’ Park, and conveniently close to Westminster, Victoria Station, the West End and Mayfair. With Heathrow International Airport a mere 45 minutes away, it is the perfect location for both business and leisure trips. The 323 rooms and suites are ideal for relaxation and indulgence, a perfect synthesis of old-world charm, modern design and state-of-the-art amenities. The hotel’s celebrated restaurants, including fine dining Michelin-starred Quilon and contemporary European Bistro have pleased the most discerning of gourmands. Kona hosts some of London’s most creative afternoon teas including Alice Tea Party in Wonderland, Candy Stripped Carousel and Indian Jasmine Afternoon Tea. A hidden Victorian gem in the heart of the capital, St. James’ Courtyard is the perfect summer’s day setting for a glass of champagne, with majestic turrets and a cherub-adorned fountain surrounded by a turn-of-the-century red brick frieze, depicting sylvan scenes from Shakespeare’s plays. The newly relaunched wellness centre, marrying two iconic brands – Jiva and Temple Spa – offers the finest of East meets West spa treatments, designed to completely relax and restore the equilibrium of body and mind. Crisp and elegant, with an ease that’s reserved, yet attentive, we strive to make each visit more pleasurable and memorable.

Our room was very comfortable. The bed and linens were excellent and afforded a good night’s sleep. The staff were all very friendly and welcoming. The location of the hotel is both quiet and convenient. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will be happy to return.

Pleasant stay for 3 nights
There were some issues with the power which went out for some time. Service was overall good but there was some reluctance of restaurant staff regarding room service. Check-in desk service was excellent. Room was comfortable although the new wing was a little noisy.
