The hotel was once frequented by guests of Buckingham Palace, and today the dedicated staff work to deliver a royal experience for all who pass through.

    Amenities and Services

All guestrooms offer views over either Westminster or the St. James’ Courtyard. This one-of-a-kind courtyard, with a magnificent central fountain, is a draw for all travelers, but particularly those looking to host a sophisticated function. The hotel is fully equipped for conferences and banquets and boasts the UK’s only publicly available Telepresence facility. A wellness and fitness center on-site provide a gateway to health and relaxation. And both visitors and residents of London alike flock to the St. James’ Court Hotel’s Michelin-starred restaurant, Quilon.
