My fiance worked at this swanky hotel 21 years ago, so we thought it'd be fun to stay there one of our evenings in London. This was one of the more expensive hotels during our trip, but worth it for a night. Staff--from doormen to front desk to servers in the lounge--were all top-notch, couldn't be better. We felt welcomed...

Chose the St James Court Taj for location but found everything about it superlative! Warm, welcoming staff with the highest standards for courtesy, comfort and professionalism. Room was lovely and meticulously maintained; restaurant and lounge provided quality food and service as well as delightful ambiance. We had the good fortune to encounter Sunaina Soares, Asst.

This was my wife and my second stay at St. James with our first in 2014. This time we stayed in a King room (the first was a queen), which was a slightly larger room and this rate was pre-pay and included a great buffet breakfast. My only compliant about the king room (although it was larger) is that the...

Lovely staff, lovely environment, range of catering facilities excellent, 3 minute's walk from Buckingham Palace. The hotel is an Edwardian building around an award-winning courtyard. What else could you ask for.

We stayed in the hotel for 4 days in January, so had what I assume was a reduced winter rate. Great location and value. Beautiful building, lovely lobby, well-maintained courtyard garden, full buffet breakfast, large bathtub in marble bath.

The St James Court has always been a great hotel but the staff and new furnishings make it one of the very best places to stay while in London.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
