Certificate of Excellence
In a country that values understatement, St. James' Court is an English classic typifying the concealed charm of one of Britain's finest hotels. The custom of St. James’ Court, A Taj Hotel is the distinctive choice for more than service with a smile. With a distinguished pedigree shaped over more than a century, this discreet Victorian masterpiece with its famous Shakespearean Courtyard is perfectly placed between Buckingham Palace and the Houses of Parliament in a historic enclave marking the centre of power. Crisp and elegant, with an easy charm that’s reserved, yet attentive, we strive to make each visit more pleasurable and memorable. Exceeding the expectations of today’s discerning traveller, St. James' Court is a slice of the past served up on a contemporary platter.

Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.

The hotel is magnificent, their service was courteous and responsive, the location is extremely convenient, to bus, underground and on foot. You can't get more convenient if you want to watch the Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace! Easy walking distance to many tourist

There is a thermostat but the air conditioning is central air conditioning so by changing the temperature settings I was not able to control it. There are no radiators in the rooms. This is another of the reasons I was quite unhappy. For half the night I was in thermal socks and a fleece with the blsnkets. Then their central heating (which must be on a timer) kicked in around 2:30 a.m.).

Yes - twin bedded rooms are available. Not sure about the sofa bed - my junior suit had a sofa but not sure if it converted.

The beds are typically made European style with a sheet and duvet however if you want a top sheet and bottom sheet and a duvet or blanket just ask for American style! We did this and they were very accommodating 😃

Only had breakfast in our room. It’s very good. Arrived on a heated trolly that converts into a table. All hot, poached eggs perfect. Lots of other extras as well.
