Service, accommodations, location and food were all excellent. The hotel helped us make a very memorable vacation. our stay (my wife and I and our son and daughter-in-law) was for 7 nights. We couldn't have asked for anything more!

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

This was my 3rd or 4th stay at St. James Court in London and as always, it did not disappoint. I stayed here from 26 Feb - 3 Mar and although I booked at short notice, I got a great non-refundable (without breakfast) rate of GBP 176.25, wonderful for this centrally located Taj property. As always, the service and ambience...

Stayed for daughter's birthday. Housekeeping happily decorated the room. Lovely experience. Breakfast in the room served on a table and was laden with food! Live music on Saturday night to chill to whilst having a drink from the bar.

I was very impressed with my stay at St James Court. Having stayed at the Taj Palace in Mumbai, which was exceptional, i was very pleased that the same level of service was given here. The room was spacious and graceful and the breakfast was excellent. Location was also very good, very near to the tube stations.

Located in Westminster on Buckingham Gate; Great location; great service; great value. Good restaurants and pubs nearby. Walking distance to St. James Park, Mayfair, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace. I really enjoyed my stay here even though I usually stay in Mayfair.

If you're more of a casual dresser instead of wearing a 3-piece suit type of person, prepared to be ignored by most of the staff here. My fiance and I decided to spend our last weekend in London being in the Central area and even though we are not the most fashionable, I feel like we still dressed better than...

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.
