This was my wife and my second stay at St. James with our first in 2014. This time we stayed in a King room (the first was a queen), which was a slightly larger room and this rate was pre-pay and included a great buffet breakfast. My only compliant about the king room (although it was larger) is that the...

Lovely staff, lovely environment, range of catering facilities excellent, 3 minute's walk from Buckingham Palace. The hotel is an Edwardian building around an award-winning courtyard. What else could you ask for.

This hotel has a good location and is situated in a nice building but the staff needs a little training. I was told I have to leave a deposit from my card at check in but instead of just blocking the amount on my card they charged the full amount for it and at check out I had to wait...

We stayed in the hotel for 4 days in January, so had what I assume was a reduced winter rate. Great location and value. Beautiful building, lovely lobby, well-maintained courtyard garden, full buffet breakfast, large bathtub in marble bath.

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 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...

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.
