St. James's Hotel and Club

London , England , United Kingdom

Visited May 2013

As part of the St. James's team, people often ask me what I love about the hotel. The location is definitely top of the list - we're in a quiet cul-de-sac that is only moments from Mayfair, Buckingham Palace, the gorgeous shops of Jermyn Street, the Burlington Arcade, Bond Street, The Royal Academy of Arts, and only a short stroll from the theatres and night life of the West End.

From an insider's point of view, my favourite feature in the hotel is the wallpaper - not many people realise that it's handmade silk. But I think Seven Park Place, our deliciously small, but perfectly formed 26-cover Michelin-starred restaurant by William Drabble, wins it for me. The menu is French inspired but made with the best British seasonal produce.
