Sofitel's flagship property offers a beguiling mix of English opulence and French savoir-faire.
Perched right on the corner of Pall Mall and Waterloo Place, the awe-inspiring Sofitel London St James is one of the city's most unique luxury hotels. St James successfully melds French modernism with unmistakable British Old World elegance. The lobby space, for example, is scented with fresh roses, and a harpist plays during afternoon tea. Room interiors are lavish, with rich fabrics in varying shades of chocolate, almond and olive, lacquered mahogany furniture, thick carpets, sophisticated lighting and state-of-the-art technology. The deluxe rooms and executive suites are much larger and have seating areas for several guests. For fine dining, Balcon restaurant is done in extravagant brasserie style and serves classic British and French haute cuisine.
