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.

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!

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!
