Everything was perfect, from car vallet parking, to easy check-in, from cocktail bar to huge continental breakfast in our room. The superior room was very spacious with a massive bed. Bathroom had Penhaligon toiletries - perfect.
The Sofitel St James is a beautiful escape from the bustle of London. Gloriously decorated, friendly and welcoming staff and opulently understated surrounds make this a delightful hotel. Our room was next to the gym and we never heard a thing the building is so well designed to control noise. The breakfast was delicious each morning and the bar staff produced perfect drinks each evening. Our only grizzle was the bathroom door which was dreadful - French doors that did not allow for noise separation between it and our bedroom. Other than that, it was a perfect stay.
This was our choice as a convenient base for visiting Buckingham Paace but it offered so much more than location.
All the staff made us feel very welcome and the service was discreet and polished but in no way pompous or haughty. All the staff were cheerful and helpful and we even enjoyed a bit of banter and humour.
Check in and check out were both easy and pleasant and Afternoon Tea, cocktails and breakfast were all delightful experiences.
The location is great for shopping , theatres and culture and Green Park is just a few steps away.
I have stayed in over thirty different hotels in central London but this would now be my first choice. My only worry about staying here again would be that I might not want to leave to go to a meeting!
Wonderful boutique hotel tucked off a quiet street in the heart of Mayfair. Beautifully appointed rooms, with amenities to please the most discerning. Incredibly attentive staff. Fabulous restaurant and bar. A true gem!
