We stayed in this hotel as it was convenient for our stay in London. Whilst usually out of our price range, we decided to treat ourselves and were pleasantly surprised. The hotel staff were lovely and very helpful, the hotel was clean (if a little tired in places) and the food and drink was fantastic. We ordered room service which...

First, note that my girlfriend and I got quite fortunate with the booking and paid substantially less than the original asking price, I think we booked with a 40-50% discount. For that price, it's perfect. Close to the underground and walking distance to Buckingham palace and the surrounding gardens. If you plan to have tea with the queen, this is...

We chose the St James Court because of its close proximity to Buckingham Palace. The suite we had was of a good size, clean and well appointed, the only problem was the noise from the road outside. It would be worth asking for a room towards the back of the hotel. Staff were welcoming, friendly and willing to spend time...

The hotels own restaurant - The Bistro - serves good English food combined with a few tantalising dishes from India. A great idea. However, what I'd let travellers know, is that if you're on business on your own and staying at this hotel, dine at the Bistro and the staff will make you feel really welcome and at home.....with some...

Great hotel, perfect location to in London, not far to St James Park/Victoria underground. Concierge lovely: even after I called at 4am to see if they would deliver a McDonalds. I went for a girly weekend away and it was ideal for us but have been before with family and the standard was still to my liking

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.
