The Hotel was OK! Not the best but good enough. The staff is friendly. What I liked the most was the location. It is only a couple blacks from The Buckingham Palace and 5 min walking distance from other iconic places like The Big Ben, The House of Parliaments and London eye...

My wife and I recently stayed at the St James Court for 4 days. Our room was a large and beautiful studio suite.The location is good: close to sightseeing and restaurants but a little bit removed from some of the London congestion.

The St. James is a quiet , beautiful respite in the middle of a busy city. Located walking distance to Buckingham Palace. All employees are gracious and helpful. A stand of London taxis just around the corner provides easy transport to any place in London. We loved it and plan to return.

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.
