High class St. James.
A super high class hotel with amazingly attentive staff. Small rooms, but all of a very high standard. Still amazes me that there are no tea making facilities though. Ah well :) Love it here.

Top notch 5 star in heart of St James's
Very nice 5 star hotel in heart of St James's. Have stayed before, and always lives up to expectations. Not cheap, but a case of you get what you paid for - i was staying for business, but have used it for personal treats in the past.Perfectly placed for theatre land.
