Description, Services & Facilities

Follow in the footsteps of famous faces at the boutique St James’s Hotel in London. Established in 1857 as a club for travelling diplomats, the hotel has since welcomed Winston Churchill, Ian Fleming and Sean Connery. Housed in a refurbished Victorian townhouse (only the front entrance and impressive spiral staircase still remain from the original building) and tucked away in a cul-de-sac, this five star hotel is a quiet retreat away from the crowds, yet still close to the famous Buckingham Palace, leafy Green Park and buzzing West End. Priding itself on providing white glove service without the stuffiness, the hotel’s little touches make the difference; a 400-piece collection of artwork includes Impressionist paintings and promotional posters from Venetian operas, hand-made mattresses and textured wallpaper add subtle luxury and a complimentary smart phone in each room with free international calls and data roaming is a thoughtful touch.

Guests can enjoy the following services and facilities at St James’s Hotel:
