Loads of little indulgences for extended stays.
The Taj 51 Buckingham Gate hotel is a boutique town house property situated in Westminster, in the heart of London. The entrance is situated away from the main road and opens into a calm and beautiful courtyard garden with manicured flower beds and fountain. The luxe hotel is connected to St. James' Court London by the inner courtyard (both are owned and operated by Taj Hotels, Resorts & Palaces), and it enjoys privileges at St. James' Court's spa, fitness center and Quilon restaurant, sister to the Bombay Brasserie.
As for its individual assets, the reception area is small and discreet, and immediately makes you feel at home in a way that large hotels rarely do. The property contains 82 suites and apartments, which house up to four bedrooms; there are also ways to extend certain suites into nine-bedroom accommodation. All come with fully equipped kitchens, wireless Internet access, printers, fax machines and private phone numbers. Signature suites include amenities such as large dining spaces, original artwork and private chefs, and all suites enjoy butler service on request. The two-bedroom Jaguar Suite, decorated by Jaguar's chief designer Ian Callum, alludes to classic and contemporary Jaguar models and features specially commissioned Jaguar-inspired artwork and displays. 51 Buckingham Gate is also more contemporary than its counterpart, with refined modern décor in an intimate townhouse setting. Personal butlers are Ivor Spencer trained, and complimentary breakfast featuring organic produce is served in The Library. On your way out of town, grab a Gourmet on the Go meal for your flight.
