We had chosen The Taj for its location and value. Yes, the property is on the luxury side and we felt for the money we got as much as we had expected from the brand. Honestly, we shop for properties by looking for the cheapest room with the very best location. We only sleep in our rooms when we vacation...

This hotel is wonderfully located. Near Buckingham Palace, the theaters, tube stations and numerous restaurants, let alone superb shopping, we could not have been more pleased with the efficiency of travel, etc. We made an expensive mistake by taking the Heathrow Express to downtown London.

A very good location if you like to walk a bit. A bit noisy at times in the room as I believe the underground passes just under the property (or very close by). Ask for a room higher then the 3rd floor.

Best location for touring the key sites. Needed a button sewed on my suit jacket and they took care of it for free. Breakfast in hotel is pricey, but there are other very good options nearby. Excellent friendly professional staff throughout hotel.

The courtyard is absolutely gorgeous and perfect for an afternoon snack or evening cocktail. The service was excellent. The price that we booked was very fair for London. The area is good, very close to Buckingham Palace, but we prefer to stay in Mayfair.

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.
