Sandwiched between the Mall and Piccadilly, St James’s is genteel, English and somehow masculine by reputation – perhaps because of the presence of several gentlemen’s clubs in the area, along with Jermyn Street, known for its gentlemen’s outfitters. The best hotels in St James’s range from the discreet, like the charming Dukes – home to Dukes Bar, renowned for its martinis – to the exuberant, like the storied Ritz. The Wolseley, an elegant modern rendition of a grand café, is a great place to eat – it’s open from breakfast to dinner – and drink in the atmosphere. Piccadilly Circus and Green Park tubes sit at two corners of the area, and it’s is also a short walk from Charing Cross and Covent Garden. Here is our pick of the best hotels in St James’s.
