Stayed two nights at the Taj. We love Taj properties, as we generally find their service to be great. This was similar, except for a few items. First the good - night manager, cleaning crew and concierge were all excellent. Only down side- service at restaurant.

Very decadent and stylish. Location is great, service is great. Had an issue being woken up at 5am - set by previous occupant! But very top hotel, and gives you a really relaxed feeling in the heart of London.

Nestled inside a beautiful Edwardian enclave between Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace, this place is an absolute gem. Superb, courteous service and immaculately clean and well appointed suites, with complimentary fruit and mineral water. It feels like living in a city apartment. The attention to detail is fantastic. During my check-in conversation, I mentioned that we were celebrating my daughter's...

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.
