St James Court is in a great location between Buckingham and Westminster Abbey and near three tube stations. Lots of food choices in hotel and in the area. Staff very friendly and willing to help out.

There was a set 7 course menu for £80 and it certainly did not disappoint us . When we arrived we were shown...

Overpriced, noisy and breakfast terrible. If you want breakfast in a hurry don't bother and also the food was cold and little choice. Very thin walls, hotel very noisy if situated at the front of the building. Rooms not how they look on the internet. Location is however excellent.

When we (frequently) visit India, we usually stay in Taj hotels which are always in great locations and offer excellent service with every amenity. St James's Court in central London is no exception and we thoroughly enjoyed our Taj experience there. The Reception, Concierge and Bar staff were most helpful and we were delighted to meet the charming Hotel Manager,...

A perfectly pleasant two night stay in London. The hotel is in a good, albeit rather soulless location (near the Wellington Barracks and the Ministry of Justice), however there are a number of redeeming features. The Edwardian architecture of the building is lovely, the interior is well-appointed, the room was quiet on the weekend - thankfully (a building is being...

If you going to London for the first time, this hotel is so centrally located, you can walk to a lot of the most visited sites in town. We did not use public transportation until our 3rd day due to this. The hotel is very nice, has a great feel and wonderful staff. I didn't open a door to leave...

This was supposed to be an anniversary present for my wife, nice hotel and show. The room didn't look anything like the one shown on Booking.com it was a lot smaller. The bathroom was very small, probably the smallest I have ever uncounted, nowhere to put toiletries. There was no mirror over the dressing table, just a mirror near the...

Excellent location, great staff, old systems that need replacement, especially the heating and air conditioning systems. Get breakfast with your package, it was excellent and very expensive a la carte. Have the staff male all your reservations, they are excellent.

This hotel was wonderful and pretty reasonably priced for being right in the middle of London, walking distance to everything touristy. We were greeted by a very kind doorman who jumped into action when he saw I had a sleeping child in my arms, before I even had the chance to grab luggage he grabbed it for me. The room...

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.
