3 days in London

Excellent location for sight seeing, hotel itself was beautiful. Resturants were excellent, the fillet stake in the bank was awesome! Slightly disappointed with the room, quite small and overlooked a building site...obviously there is nothing the hotel can do about there being building work next door though

The best thing about my stay was...

Disappointing. Staff welcome good but problems thereafter.

Looked so lovely on the internet and we were pleased to be given a room overlooking the courtyard. However, we returned from a day out at 4.30 pm to find our room not made up the first day. Fortunately, we were out again for a concert and they made up the room whilst we were out. We were then shocked on returning to our room late evening to find a bill for breakfast for one person for the first night and when checking out met a rather unfriendly member of staff insisting I had booked for single occupancy only and seemed reluctant to cancel the charge. (They had our accomodation voucher on check-in so I could not prove otherwise.) Our room was opposite some fire doors which banged constantly through the night and woke us up as did a lift noise. Also, the bed was a lovely queen size with an ill-fitting double sized duvet! It spoiled our Valentine treat.

The best thing about my stay was...

Fantastic meal at the Indian Quilon restaurant attached to hotel. Breakfast & staff good.

Good Stay

Excellent 2 night stay for business. Large, clean well equipped room for sole use. Complimentary water, tea/coffe biscuits welcomed. Good buffet breakfast choices and hot breakfast and very efficient friendly reception staff. Close to tube. Excellent Michelin star Indian restaurant "Quilon" a few doors down.

fantastic hotel

Had a great stay at Crowne Plaza St. James. Room was extremely well equiped and the bed was so comfortable. Service was excellent and all areas were kept clean and tidy. Lots of comfy areas to sit and relax. Didn't have time to try out the gym or spa. Only criticism is the price of food and drinks was quite high but that seems to be the norm for good hotels in London.

The best thing about my stay was...

the comfortable beds and the situation of hotel was good.

Fantastic!

We stayed for a week in July of 2005. This being our first trip overseas we were worried about the accommodations. We got an excellent deal on the room and it was very clean and quite large. We had a nice view of the courtyard. There's not too much happening in Westminster during the day as it seems to be a business area but it was still beautiful and we were extremely close to Victoria Station which got us anywhere we wanted in minutes. The hotel is maybe a block or two from Buckingham Palace so you can stroll there in just a couple minutes.
