Gem out of the beaten path
I have been traveling to London about 6 timers a year on business for more than 10 years. I always stay in the St James area. it is so unfortunate that it took me this long to discover this gem. just out of the beaten path, with an amazing bar and an amazing restaurant. The place is lively throughout the day and it is not inundated by tourists. I cant wait until my next trip just to start checking their different rooms.
