Smith Travel BlogTravel tales and hotel news from the boutique hotel experts at Mr & Mrs Smith

Need to know, St James's Hotel & Club, London, UKWell I don’t know about where you are, but it is a GORGEOUS day here in London town, so we thought we might try to lure you to our fair capital not only with spring sunshine, jolly daffs and unusually chipper citizens, but with a taster of one of our latest London hotel reviews: rejuvenated men’s club St James’s Hotel & Club in Mayfair. Usually I’d let you discover the name of the anonymous reviewer on the main Mr & Mrs Smith hotel website, but since it’s one of our favourite lifestyle bloggers, Ronda Carman of All the Best, I thought I’d tell you. There.

As you know, every time we publish a new hotel write-up from one of our panel of independent reviewers, we’ll let you know, so you can keep pace with our team of travel spies and style insiders on their global roams. Every property in hand-picked hotel collection is reviewed anonymously by a real-life couple, so we can make sure every bed is beautiful, every breakfast delectable, and every night romantic (as well as super-stylish).

So: here’s some feedback from Ronda and her Mr Smith after their recent visit to city luxury hotel St James’s in London…

Bond Street, Park Lane, Mayfair… all the most coveted properties on the London Monopoly board line the path to our hotel. St James\'s Hotel & Club in LondonAs a child, you just knew that you were a winner if these cards were in your hand, and as an adult it’s no different. With each passing street and landmark, we realise we’re in for something very special.

Approaching a quiet cul-de-sac just off St James’s Street, we catch our first glimpse of the elegant St James’s Hotel & Club. The red façade of the imposing townhouse seems quite perfect for a romantic weekend away.

As we step inside, friendly faces, warm glowing lights and silk-lined walls greet our arrival. The receptionist shows us to our room, and forgoes the standard room tour (at our request), allowing us to explore the nifty gadgets and opulent surrounds ourselves. Later, though, we realise we should maybe have had her identify the little knob in the bathroom that we never quite figured out…
