We arrived early in am from an overnight flight, and the staff was able to get us into our lovely suite, at 8;50 am. The breakfast buffet was not only plentiful, varied and tasty, but it ran from 06:00 - 10;00 daily!

Lovely property, and good location for London sightseeing and shopping. Room wasn’t ready until 2 hours after our check-in time, and rather than being informed of this we were subjected to an endless parade of, “it will be another 20 minutes; can I bring you some tea?”: ideal strategy to turn a disappointing experience into an infuriating one. Staff tended to be more obsequious than actually helpful.

We loved the location on a side street, minutes from all of the hustle and bustle of Buckingham Palace yet close to local eateries and walking distance to virtually everything. It appeared the hotel is under some renovation as our room hallway looked quite different than the other side of the building.

Our stay was fabulous! The location was perfect, located in the center of action, within walking distance of so many places of interest and located near public transport for getting to sites farther away. The staff was very professional, very congenial, always attentive and helpful, and full of smiles. I have already recommended St. James Court to others.

Check in was terrible - slow service, rooms not ready, multiple groups waiting in lobby for rooms, cleaning staff clearly understaffed. Otherwise, great place to stay once you got into a room .
