Newest Review: ... mam. He smiled at us and I think he knew that we recognised him. He opened his room key card, as he smiled, and my mam and I saw that next to 'customer name' read: 'Mr Hasselhoff' - we looked at each other as if to say 'I knew it!' and my mam said 'you are aren't you?' (yes mam, he is (The Hoff), but he can't read your mind!) (My mam is mortified that she hadn't thought of something more ... more

I and a friend booked to stay at the Crowne Plaza St James for two nights in February 2012 as part of a show and stay package. We were very impressed with the hotel. The doormen and reception staff were welcoming and we received a free upgrade on our room. The interior decor was well maintained and our evening meal at the restaurant was good. The only down side was the noise emanating from building works on the building next door, but this did not stop us from getting a good nights kip. I enjoyed the hotel enough to be rebooking there on my next trip down to London with my husband this coming May. It is ideally placed to walk to Buckingham Palace and St James park, and not too far from theatre land.

== Introduction == In October, I went to London with my parents to meet my MP as part of a mass mobilisation of Parliament (raising awareness of the importance of Speech and Language Therapy) and the RCSLT Giving Voice Awards Ceremony. We wanted a hotel that was in central London as I knew there wouldn't be much time between meeting with my MP and getting ready to head back out for the evening Gala Dinner and Awards. My dad booked the flights well in advance but still hadn't booked a hotel with only a couple of weeks to go so my mam decided to look online and found us this 4 star hotel for 2 nights. Having stayed in a Crowne Plaza previously I was pleased ... Read the complete review

INTRODUCTION I booked dinner and theatre for my wife's thirtieth birthday, and needed a relatively up-market hotel in London - with a bit of "wow" factor - to overnight in. I am a frequent visitor to IC Hotel Group properties on business (these include the five star Intercontinental Hotels, the four to five star Crowne Plaza, and the three to four star Holiday Inn) and am a member of their award-winning "Priority Club" loyalty scheme, so I decided to use my accumulated points to redeem a "Reward Night" and stay for free. The hotel is on Buckingham Gate, with extensive frontage and an attractive red and white brick façade with ... Read the complete review

We stayed here last month as part of an ebay package - 2 tickets to see The Lion King at the West End, and a hotel for the night. As we walked up to the hotel, we were faced with a beautiful, grand looking hotel on the right and a grotty building on the left - we joked that it was going to be that one, but we were shocked when we found out it actually was the other - after all, we'd paid £189 for the entire package and weren't expecting such a fancy looking hotel! The main foyer was pretty grand and spectacular - in fact we both felt incredibly out of place, being about 20 years younger than the average guest and we weren't wearing particularly ...

A couple of years ago I spent two nights at the Crowne Plaza London St James. My husband was there on business and not being one to pass up on a freebie; I took a couple of days leave and tagged along. Because my husband had such a heavy schedule, he didn't appreciate just how good the hotel was overall but he did comment on the well appointed board rooms, the very good corporate lunch and the excellent staff service. I on the other hand was able to digest the lot. I was so impressed that I made a mental note to return on our next leisure trip to the city. Last month, I checked out the hotel's website with a view to booking a room for a couple of nights. I was ... Read the complete review
