Dining

THE ROSE LOUNGE
Fresh roses and live harp music are the backdrop to this cozy London restaurant and tea lounge, a pretty space of plump seats in vivid pink and red. Afternoon tea or champagne are the perfect accompaniments to quiet conversation or browsing the library.
THE BALCON
French and British cuisine meet at this lively London restaurant with unexpected touches: charcuterie of Welsh and French meats, a private dining room behind silk curtains, a champagne tasting table reached by oak spiral stairs.
ST JAMES BAR
An extensive list of wines and spirits is served alongside cocktails and exclusive champagnes in this quietly cozy London bar. Accompany your tipple of choice with a tasty snack or French-inspired plates like homemade foie gras terrine.

great location!!

stayed at Sofitel St. James for two nights in July 2012. location could not have been better. Picadilly lane (Subway or Tube) station was only 3 min. walk, and the park was only 5 min. walk or less. if this is your first time in london, this is the hotel you want to stay at!

Second stay, exceeded expectations both times.

Spent a week in Jan 14 and was truly impressed by the hotel and staff so I chose this hotel again when I needed to be in London for another 5 days in Feb. Again, the staff was exceptional in all areas (reception, porters, bar, housekeeping). The hotel size is more intimate, which I believe allows for better service. I opted for a larger room both stays and in both cases it was very comfortable. This time my room had a mini espresso machine which was a nice surprise. I have stayed at three different Park Lane hotels previously and found the location of the Sofitel St. James to be much better. Steps from several theaters, Trafalgar Square, National Gallery, countless restaurants and shopping. It will be my first choice again when returning to London.

Excellent Services

I needed a last minute tickets to a hot event and the concierge of the hotel went out their way to get them for me! What a great job!

Welcome to London !

Our London visit was fabulous, in no small part, due to the excellent service and welcoming atmosphere of the Sofitel St. James, in London. The entire staff made it clear, they were there to look after us and our every need or request instantly. The savings thru this site are amazing. If you are going to stay in London, Stay at the Sofitel.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Dining in London can be expensive, but within a block of the hotel is a Testa , which has all manner of ready made food, huge salad bar, every kind of bakery good, fresh fruit, beverage you could possible want, all for reasonable cost. Busy at lunch hour with London Office staffers, grabbing a bite

Great theaters are all around. But book your own ticket. The concierge here uses a service that charges an extra 20 pounds.

Very Luxurious Hotel

This hotel was in the perfect location. It was by the hustle and bustle of Piccadilly, Leicester Square, and Trafalgar Square. It was within walking distance to many sights like the National Gallery, Westminster Abbey, and Buckingham Palace. There were a couple of tube stations within walking distance so it was easy to get everywhere. The staff was also very helpful and friendly. They would take your luggage right away, showed how everything worked in the room, and made sure we had a taxi when we were leaving. I would definitely stay here again!
