Overall, my stay was fine. Three circles is probably a little harsh, but the hotel didn’t feel up to four circles based on what one expects from the Conrad brand (which is a Hilton ‘luxury’ brand). To be fair, the hotel has many positives. Its location is excellent for exploring London: it’s directly across the street from a Tube stop on the District and Circle lines, giving easy access to the city, and it’s a short walk to Westminster’s sights (and Tube stop). It’s central, but a little out of the busyness of Oxford St., etc., and a quiet area at night without a lot of noise, etc. In general, staff at the hotel were accommodating and pleasant. For example, when I needed a document to be printed, and a taxi to be sorted, they were eager to assist. Agents at check-in and check-out were welcoming and professional. The hallways and rooms have elegant design, with beautiful use of woods and neutral tones; the public spaces of the hotel are beautiful and modern. I’d say the vibe is “understated elegance”—a nice contrast, in my view, to some London hotels where OVER-stated elegance is the aesthetic. The water pressure in the bathroom is excellent. My king room was spacious, by London standards, and had plenty of storage areas for clothing, etc. Internet was fast. So, by no means a terrible stay, or a place one must avoid. That said, the hotel was a little less than for what I hoped. Why? Well, for one, the breakfast experience is absolutely awful. So awful that I marveled at the people seemingly enjoying their breakfast at the Premier Inn down the street. Breakfast was not being served in the executive lounge, which meant all guests had to go to the breakfast being served at The Pem restaurant—not a problem in and of itself, but the execution was awful. The buffet was uninspired, and the set-up for the buffet was awkward and caused unnecessary lines (for example, food was stacked on multiple shelves in coolers, causing people to have to bend over or reach up to grab their items—“am I in a grocery store, or at a luxury hotel’s breakfast?,” I wondered). The service, in contrast to other parts of the hotel, was atrocious: it took multiple attempts of chasing down staff to get a cup of tea (not exaggerating). The table next to me had the same problem. Another table was frustrated as they’d been waiting for a bill for some time. Another guest was annoyed because the breakfast he ordered off the menu arrived cold. A hotel of the Conrad’s caliber needs to have a better breakfast set-up than this; furthermore, some major professionalism needs to be brought to the staff and management, who were running around in a disorganized manner. It is not fun to experience poor service yourself (“just make the darn tea self-service if it’s going to be like this…,” I thought), nor is it particularly inspiring to start your day forming bonds with other guests as you all roll your eyes in shared frustration at the poor service. The hotel is showing its age. For example, carpets in the stairwell and in some hallway areas were pilling badly. The wooden door and wall in my room had damage. The lamp next to the bedside was leaning; one of the bulbs on the reading light bedside was out. The light flush on the toilet didn’t work, requiring one to waste water and use the heavy flush each time. None of this was catastrophic, but for such a lovely hotel (e.g., gorgeous artworks, etc., throughout the property), it was disappointing to see that such items were either not addressed in routine maintenance or that the hotel is letting itself get to the point of guests thinking, “hmmm, time for a renovation.” Towel linens gave the same impression; in a hotel of this caliber, should the bath towels be fraying on the edges? Service was generally helpful and staff had good sprit to serve (again, save breakfast), but had flaws. For example, I arrived early and a room wasn’t yet ready—understandable. The agent promised that she would text and/or call when my room was ready; I never reached such a communication and returned several hours later and was informed a room had been ready for some time. Well, why didn’t you call like you said you would? Housekeeping seemed to be a ‘one and done’ situation—on previous visits, if you were in your room during the evening turndown, staff would return. This visit, I received turndown service (refreshed towels, a little treat in the room, etc.) on zero nights of my stay, presumably because I was often getting ready for my evening out at the time housekeeping stopped by. The executive lounge situation was also disappointing. I went to use the business center in the lounge, but the set-up was non-functional because the wireless keyboard had no charge (again, this kind of lack of attention-to-detail was disappointing; how hard is it to have a daily checklist with stuff like, “does the business center keyboard work?”). Furthermore, at check-in, I was invited to enjoy “drinks and canapés” from 5pm-7pm. I arrived at 6:30pm to all of the canapés being gone (and not re-stocked). Why say you’re going to have canapés from 5pm-7pm if it’s really a “first come, first served” situation? My sleep experience was also subpar. My mattress was past its prime (uneven surface, tilting to one side) and the bedding, while nice to the touch, breathed very poorly…which meant waking-up each night sweating, despite a very cold room. On another attention-to-detail front, I received a nice communication from management prior to my visit asking about my arrival time and offering a set of links. I received no response on the arrival time after replying—and arrived at the time to hear no room was ready. If you’re not going to acknowledge a reply with the arrival time or change anything based on it, why ask? And the “concierge recommendations for London” part of the sent link was a broken link to no information. If the links you send don’t work, why send them? Again, not catastrophic, but things that could easily be solved with a bit more attention-to-detail. Overall, a high potential hotel with staff (outside of the incompetent breakfast staff) who seem to genuinely be trying hard. But, between some of the physical problems in the room, the terrible breakfast, and the failures in attention-to-detail, one was left with the impression that the hotel was more “amateur luxury hour” than “luxury.” Would I advise someone to completely avoid this hotel? No, not at all. Do I think it’s average, based on what I experienced and versus what one would expect from the Conrad brand? I do.

Hotel's Favourite
Spent three nights at the Conrad St James with my wife to celebrate our 40th Wedding Anniversary. This was our second visit and was just as good if not better than last time. The position of the hotel is fantastic and we found the short cut to St James Park, where we saw for the first time the Pelicans which was amazing. A short walk away from the Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey which we visited for the first time for quite some years. When we arrived at the hotel were upgraded to an Executive King room due to Hilton Gold Status and we were able to enjoy the Lounge where drinks were served all day with cocktails and wine between 5.30pm and 7.30pm. A varied range of canapes were also served. Special mention of Irosh who managed the lounge very effectively. Breakfast during our stay was served a la carte during our and despite staff shortages, managed to provide excellent quality food and service. In summary the hotel looked after us very well during a very difficult time and all staff went the extra mile to make our anniversary special. All in all we both had a great time at the Conrad which exceeded our expectations again.

I treated myself to a three-night stay at the Conrad London St James as an early birthday present and now I regret it deeply. Don't take me wrong, the hotel is lovely. Unfortunately, when I was to leave a tip for housekeeping at the end of my stay, I found out that all my cash - euro banknotes worth EUR 180, was gone. I am really appalled that this happened. The money was not simply lying around. I kept it in a closed pouch in a zippered backpack inside the wardrobe in my room. So not only has a not-so-insignificant amount of money been taken, it is also obvious that those who took it must have searched through the wardrobe and my belongings. I was in a hurry to catch my flight, so I decided to wait until I'm back home and go through my stuff properly before I draw any conclusions. Honestly, I could not believe that the money could have been stolen although I knew I had never taken the cash out of the pouch. I've learned my lesson and I'm sure I'll never leave any cash in my room again (or book a room at the Conrad). It's quite ironic that this happened at a five-star hotel where I'd expect elementary respect for guests' privacy. I informed the hotel about this a week ago but have not received any response yet. Very, very disappointing.

the location is superb, very close to Buckingham Palace. The staff was a little reserved. We liked our room but had a couple issues. One was that the shower leaked over the lip and got the bathroom floor very wet. We had to use our towels in addition to the bath mat and the one day we had put them in the tub because they were wet but instead of giving us new towels, the maids rehung those which smelled and were rough. We also found a box of KY jelly in the corner of the room. Not going to think about that one.
