Our family of 6 enjoyed a wonderful week in London at the Taj. We were greeted warmly by Benson, who graciously allowed us early check-in after an overnight flight and upgraded our rooms to a suite of rooms even more fabulous than those we'd already arranged - a lovely surprise and great start to our vacation. The hotel is beautiful,...

The highlight of my 2.5 weeks holiday. Everything about this beautiful establishment is 5+ star. From the lovely staff, exceptional and thoughtful service to the beautiful interior and exterior buildings. All of the staff (reception, concierge, housekeeping and restaurant) managed that rare blend of professionalism with a friendly, warm and kind approach. Well located just minutes from Buckingham Palace, St...

I can't say enough about this terrific property. It is located just a couple of minute walk from Buckingham Palace, and central to everything you would want to see and do in London. Our room (actually an apartment) felt like home and a perfect place to unwind after a busy day. I would definitely recommend it.

Not a ton of experience staying at luxury, 5 star hotels, but I can't imagine any are better than this...my wife and I traveled to London for 5 nights with our teenage son, and our travel agent recommended a suite at this hotel...absolutely fantastic! Starting with the email correspondence with the concierge a month before we arrived, the service could...

The suite was perfect p, with kitchenette, two baths, two bedrooms and a living room with a desk. Plenty of storage. The staff is so gracious, helpful and courteous beyond expectation. The cocktail hour with wine and munchies was a lovely surprise and an opportunity to be adult for a moment, each day.

We stayed here for the week, and the suite was large and very comfortable. The service really was amazing, from the doormen to the room service team everyone was professional, courteous and service oriented. We have some serious food allergies, and found the chef at one of the 4 restaurant to be very accommodating. The location really is perfect, 5...

We stayed at the Taj 51 suites and residences. The suite was amazing, clean and large. Each suite is assigned a butler. Our butler, James, was a pleasure. The staff is very attentive and knowledgeable. I was able to contact the concierge before arriving so that all reservations were made when we arrived. Happy hour every is afternoon. We visited...

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.
