A lovely building, great doorman, very welcoming in his splendid '30s style outfit and instant friendly service at reception. I accepted the offer of a glass of a welcome drink as I was checking in which was very nice, but the check in was so quick you almost don't have time to enjoy it, but I did, nice touch. The room was very nicely appointed, nice bathroom and all round very comfy. I know from going to both the bar and the restaurant before that both are very good, so you don't need to venture far if you don't feel like it. The staff are all very polite and accommodating as is the norm for a Sofitel and the bedding and beds awesome as always. We have found our mainstay when it comes to Sofitel hotels and London St James has only gone on to re affirm this. We have no doubt we will see you again in the not too distant future!
