Our family of four just returned from a lovely stay at the St. James Court hotel in London. This hotel is in a great location. It is just blocks from Buckingham Palace and walking distance to Big Ben and Westminster Abbey. The neighborhood is very nice with many restaurants and even a movie theatre right around the corner. The hotel...

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. The food, service, ambience, and overall "feel" of the hotel make it the perfect haven for resting after a long day. And if you need more space, the suites are ideal...

Flexible late check-out was the cherry on the top of a top rate experience - especially useful for guests travelling long haul in the evening. The hotel is attractive and has great character. There were absolutely no disappointments ever and only good surprises with the service.

My partner and I stayed for three days just before Christmas. It was really lovely! The staff were fantastic; nothing was too much. I'd recommend - this is a solid four star hotel in the heart of London with great character and really hospitable staff.

Taj hotel was a perfect location, minutes from the tube at st James park. The service was perfect, friendly and polite with the concierge being incredibly helpful... Extremely comfortable bed in a modest room, but the bathroom was a little dated. Every amenity at your fingertips. For a 4 star hotel in this location it was excellent value for money...

The hotel is big but still intimate. Rooms are spacious for London standards. Beautiful courtyard and very skilled and friendly staff. Breakfast is expensive so I choose to have breakfast outside the hotel. Rest is good price quality.

After staying in London very 5-6 weeks for 2-3 days, I've not, until staying at St James' Court found somewhere that's really quiet, very comfortable, well appointed, beautifully maintained, clean with excellent food and service and all this, at a very sensible price. I'm looking forward to a return visit in February .

Majestic building, luxury ambience, discreet service, lovely food. But if you are in the "basic" room, despite good fixtures, mine was cramped and noisy. When I come again I will upgrade because everything else is genuinely first class.

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.
