Superb Hotel ideally placed 4 the sites of Londo
We only stayed one night following my company Christmas party but what a great experience. We stayed in a presidential suite in the Minster building. The suite had a lovely lounge room with an large flat screen TV, full surround sound, DVD and blu-ray player. The bathroom was huge with a large shower and bath. There is a fully equipped kitchen with oven, microwave, fridge-freezer and washing machine for those staying any significant length of time (we only used the coffee machine and kettle!) The bedroom was large with a really comfortable king-sized bed. My only criticism of the room was that it overlooked the back of the building and there were some very faint smells of cigarette smoke from the staff smoking at the back. The staff were wonderful; very welcoming and friendly and there didn't seem to be any request that they wouldn't handle for us. Carla on reception was delightful and very helpfully charged my phone whilst I waited with a glass of wine for my wife to arrive. Matthew was equally helpful showing me the room, how everything worked and fetching additional complimentary water for us. We added breakfast to our stay and we weren't disappointed. Yes, hotel breakfasts are expensive but we both thoroughly enjoyed a full English breakfast as well as the cold buffet. The hotel is a very short walk from Buckingham Palace with Westminster, Trafalgar Square, Hyde Park and Green Park all not very far away.

Excellent suites, great location
This is a great hotel located in an excellent location. Quiet neighborhood, but quick walk to sites such as Buckingham Palace and Big Ben. The staff here is excellent. They really give you 5 star service. Our suite was perfect. The only gripe I have is that I found that for a 5 star establishment, their beds and bedding was of lesser quality. I found the bed to be too uncomfortable, and the pillows too hard. Also, the sheets seemed of sub par quality. We ate one day at Kona for breakfast. It was too expensive and the food portions were small. I didn't think the food was that great at the restaurant Kona, however, we ordered room service two times for dinner and I found their room service to be excellent. I am an Expedia VIP member and one of the amenities was 20% off food. They were not clear on this, so I was a little surprised when they charged me full price for room service. They had to clarify for me that the 20% off food amenity was only for their restaurant, Kona. I wish they were more clear on this in their initial email from Expedia. Overall I was very pleased with my stay and I will recommend this hotel to everyone. I will stay here again and in be future.

Simply amazing!
Truly amazing - wow!!!! From the onset the experience was exemplary. Check in was attentive and welcoming with a butler offering hot towels and Prosecco on arrival. This was very much appreciated as were we cold and wet from being caught in the rain. The Butler (James) was about to take the bags to our room when someone came out to greet us and asked if we would like to be upgraded. Without hesitation we said yes and was upgraded to the Jaguar Suit. The suit which was more like an apartment was stunning. Words really can’t do it justice, real wow factor!. We were treated like royalty. I had mentioned that it was my partners birthday and they returned with a cake, balloons and a card signed by the hotel staff which was a lovely surprise. They showed genuine care to make us feel special and their attention to detail was second to none. The whole experience was like something from a movie. From start to finish it was wonderful and a memory I will treasure forever. I can’t thank the hotel and staff enough. Thoroughly recommend

Fantastic Service in Great Location
Steps away from Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey, The Taj offers a unique hotel experience with suites, and arguably some of the best service I have ever experienced. I was staying with my 8mo old, and when we first checked in, they said they would bring up a crib once we left the room after freshening up. When we returned, not only had they brought a crib, but it was nicely adorned with a teddy bear (dressed as a Queen's Palace guard) and infant toiletries. Furthermore, they also brought a large play mat for the baby, as well as a high-chair for the dining area. Turn-down service not only provided fresh fruit, but a cookie with my daughter's name written in icing!! This level of service was reflected throughout the rest of the stay, from check-in to concierge services. A fantastic hotel, with fantastic service, in a fantastic location.

Very good 8.0
Almost excellent, but not quite!
We had a decent room as far as appointments, features, accommodations, and space. However, we overlooked an alley and in seeking a better view we were not accommodated. We had the staff perform a few functions for us. these generally were carried out with enthusiasm, but didn't quite make the grade (a show shine that was not done properly and an arrangement of a tour that was mishandled, costing us some extra money). A wall switch that operated the towel bar heater failed and had to be replaced. The hotel manager sent us a fruit basket with chocolate covered strawberries and a bottle of champagne to make up for the mishaps, but I'd frankly have preferred nothing to have happened that required such a gesture. Still it was an acknowledgement that was appreciated. After checkout, days later, we were credited with the tour package cost that had been mishandled, so in monetary terms the hotel made good on the issue. Still, while the hotel did the right things to make up for these issues, it would be preferable to not have even experienced them.
