No rooms the same - lovely that each room is a bit different so it's not like staying in a neutral, same old, same old "hotel" - thank you Taj St James! Location is great for underground, parks, shopping and theatre and the choice of bars and restaurants are excellent. My number one choice when in London.

Really nice hotel - mostly caters to business people, but there's a fair amount of nice tourist trade as well. Clean, quiet, classy, and with some of the best Indian cuisine I've ever tasted. Even the room service food is amazing.

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.
