Although this hotel is undergoing refurbishment the team are lovely. Really friendly welcome at reception and explained i was meeting someone and wanted a coffee. I was taken down to a bar that is temporary and effort has been taken to make it feel like a bar. Great service and coffee is great.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 28 February 2017 via mobile

This is somewhat unique in the Hilton chain in London. It's all about location and the views over Trafalgar Square. I've stayed here a few times and I finally managed to bag the corner room on the second floor on my last visit. It's worth any premium and quite a treat to wake up and watch the tourist activity below....

Dear Marc S, Thank you for your wonderful review! It is pinned on our Team Board.

Great hotel and location. Staff very helpful and friendly. There are works going on but I really don't think they impacted my stay at all and certainly did hear any disturbances. The main rooftop bar is out of action though. Location is perfect for marathon runners.

Hotel is in a great location, but having used the hotel before somewhat surprised to find the upgrade work would impact so heavily. Main two bars closed- breakfast area located in a dull underground room. Staff excellent but not put in a position of empowerment to keep customers happy!!!!

Very noisy from drilling due to refurbishment which we were not informed about and is not mentioned on hotel website. Room very tired with poor decoration, random holes in ceiling. Bed very uncomfortable, no heating in bathroom. Staff nice and we were given a complimentary breakfast to compensate for noise but it didn't. Food very average.

Good service and spacious rooms. Stayed twice and will probably repeat. Breakfast served on the basement and slightly limited in options. Comfortable bed and linens. Staff is young and friendly. It is London so the price is ok.

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.
