Great location

The St James Court Hotel, earlier the Crowne Plaza, is now managed directly by the Taj Groupj, who own the Hotel. There is a distinct improvement in both the service and general upkeep of the Hotel. The renovated rooms are great. Although many rooms are small (typical of most old London Hotels) they are well appointed and comfortable. Location is fantastic, a short walk to Buckingham Palace and the parks.
