Stayed here for 2 nights. This hotel was ideally located near the underground, St James park and Victoria. The staff were very professional and engaging. The lobby was lovely all decorated for Christmas. Our room overlooked the courtyard. It was very quiet, you wouldn't think you were in London. The bed was very comfortable. The room was spotless.

Although I would agree that some areas of the hotel seem dated, upon closer inspection, I found this hotel to be lovely, upscale and quite regal in nature. I would say it is more like classic and traditional, with upscale touches. We stayed upon arrival in London and then again just before departure. They upgraded us. The bar is quite...

Normally a Taj hotel is luxurious but unfortunately this one in London offers more of a 'Holiday Inn' interior and service quality....even though we had a relatively good rate for booking early and staying 5 nights, we expected a more elegant hotel especially as it is conveniently and centrally located near the palace, the Mall, the parks and a 15...

Front Desk staff was really good. The young lady was very professional and very descriptive on amenities location and restaurant. The Bell Desk guy was also very professional. I wasn't a fan of the rooms. Bathrooms are dated. TV is small. That said, staff was good. And so was the location. Got a great rate and was overall happy.

Staying in Westminster

Neighbourhood Profile
Westminster
If you only had an afternoon to experience London on a grand scale, Westminster would be a wise place to start. The ornate Houses of Parliament and Westminster Abbey sit adjacent at a corner of Parliament Square, and a short stroll along The Mall leads to Buckingham Palace. Trafalgar Square and Nelson's Column are just up the road as well. As captivating as the architecture is, the wonders of Mother Nature are highlights of the area too. St James's Park (arguably London's loveliest), the expansive Green Park, and pedestrian friendly tree lined paths along the river showcase the exquisite manicure provided by English gardeners. Just beyond the landmarks and the gorgeous outdoor spaces, quiet residential squares and age old local pubs offer a more subdued take on this global seat of power in the heart of London.
