Central London hotel, close to tube and Buckingham Palace Nov 18, 2013
We got a discounted rate of £138 for the night, which for central London is very reasonable, this price also included breakfast.

The hotel is a 5 minute walk from St James Park tube station and only ½ mile from Buckingham Palace, so it is ideal for seeing the sites either on foot or by the tube.

On our arrival the room wasn’t ready, we had requested a twin room and they had none made up, complimentary tea/coffee was offered while we waited. They then sent us to our room saying it was all ready now, to our surprise the maid was still in there making the beds, so we sat outside in the corridor for a further 5 minutes waiting for her to finish, a little inconvenient but no great problem.

Once inside the room was spacious and clean if I was to pick faults I’d say a little dated, but fine for the amount of time we were actually going to be spending in it. Beds were very comfy and the shower was hot and powerful, so we were pretty happy.

Dressing gowns, tea/coffee facilities, mini bar, hairdryer, iron/ironing board, UK and international plug sockets were all provided.

Staff were friendly and helpful, providing information required and making pleasant small talk during check in. They also left me a box of birthday chocolates which I thought was a nice touch.

A buffet style breakfast was included in the deal, there was a wide selection of both English and continental breakfast items, toast was made to order, I did find the cooked breakfast a little on the cold side. If you don’t have breakfast at the hotel there are a couple of nice looking coffee shops/cafes down the road which looked busy all day long.

Also take note that we could see a building site out of our window, I’m sure this will create a bit of noise during the week, but luckily they didn’t appear to be working on a Saturday afternoon/Sunday morning.

I would definitely stay here again due to the location.

Crown Plaza St James London Mar 20, 2007
The Crown Plaza gave us the best hotel experience in the UK and France! Yes, you are going to pay a little more for your room, but 150 pounds for a 5 star is well worth it. The rooms have 12 ft high ceilings with crown molding, the floors are hardwood. The beds are all king size. You have at least six windows looking down to a beautiful courtyard. The bathrooms were bigger than our hotels in Paris. Separate shower and bath. Huge marble sinks, heated towel racks. The front desk was also extremely nice. Our room took a little longer to get ready so they have us a complimentary bottle of wine.
