Sofitel St. James

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 13, 2008

Wonderful hotel in a perfect location. City of Westminster, National Gallery, Buckingham Palace, Soho, Oxford Street, Bond Street, Covent Garden are all within walking distance.

Unique Quality: Luxurious, attentive staff without going overboard. Great restaurant. Delicious breakfast. I really wanted to stay at this hotel from the start of planning my vacation, but the cost was outside my reach. Not to be deterred, I kept checking the discount brokers and the hotel website. Nine days before our trip, I found a terrific deal on the hotel website - better than anything offered by brokers. We got discount rates because we stayed over the weekend, one free night, one free dinner, one free afternoon tea, chocolates, and complimentary breakfast each morning. All of those perks thrown in made the hotel a very good deal.

Good (3.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 20, 2006

An elegant, luxury hotel, known for its famous restaurant Brasserie Roux.

I want to talk about the color in the hotel - Black. In the lobby, and especially in the guest room, all furnitures are black, or almost black. And all pictures hang in the room, corridors are framed in black frames.

In general, I found dark color is very popular among European high-end/luxury hotels - given my business travel experience in the last 1.5 years. Probably because the clients - typically mid-aged European businessman like it.

Dark color is too heavy for me, and too "traditional" looking. After a day of tiring work, I'd prefer like color, relaxing ambience with modern furnitures.

Unique Quality: The stunning Sofitel St James London is located in the former home of Cox and Kings bank in the very heart of London, England. This sympathetically renovated building is English heritage grade II listed and now houses one of London's most unique five-star hotels - combining traditional British design with a contemporary style that is unmistakably French. The award winning Brasserie Roux restaurant offers first class French brasserie cuisine and these high standards are reflected throughout the hotel.
Sofitel St James London has one of the finest addresses in London, right on the corner of Pall Mall and Waterloo Place. The hotel lies in the heart of St. James’s, a prestigious and lively district of London, within walking distance of St. James’s Park, Buckingham Palace and the renowned gentlemen’s clubs. The hotel is also less than a five minute stroll from Trafalgar Square, city centre theatres and the fabulous shopping on Regent, Piccadilly, Oxford and Bond streets. The hotel has the ideal location from which to discover and enjoy central London.

Directions: St. James Park, Piccadilly Circus
