We stayed 1 week at Sofitel St James with my wife from Dec.26th to Jan.2nd 2014.
First of all the location is great, between Piccadilly Circus and St James Park but on a pretty calm square. The architecture of the building is very nice and the lobby of the hotel is beautiful and bright. The room (Luxury) was quite large and well decorated, notably the bathroom. The bed was more than comfortable, as usual at Sofitel
Regarding the staff, they were generally polite and helpful, nothing else to say about it.
The spa is a peaceful island in the crowdy London and we really enjoyed our massages there after walking miles and miles for the winter sales.
One improvement point: there was no groom/doorman when we arrived and we have been obliged to carry our luggages. For a 5 stars hotel in London, it is not the first impression we were expecting.
To conclude, Sofitel St James is a nice alternative to other 5 stars hotels in London, thanks to its location, its accomodation and the quality/price ratio.
