Posted: Updated:

St. James's Hotel and Club

Stylish, elegant townhouse-style hotel located in a prestigious and central area next to Mayfair ... the perfect location for shopping many distinguished art galleries, boutiques, auction houses and bespoke establishments.

Why:The feel of a small hotel with a luxurious ambiance, impeccable style and the highest standard of service. It is sophisticated and full of personality.

Suzanne Says: This recently renovated hotel has been built to the highest standards of comfort and luxury. I love the mix of the handsome Victorian building and the well-chosen contemporary furnishings.
Top Tips: Book ahead for one of London's nearby finest & shiniest dining experiences as they are popular! There is a separate entrance for those who choose to do their exercise regime in St. James's or Hyde Park; thoughtfully provided with towels and bottled water. No need to worry about your appearance after a run!

Trusted Source: 2010 Fortune and Wallpaper Magazines both voted it one of the world's best business hotels.
