Great hotel but...
Wonderful hotel, great service, beautiful rooms. However, the room was really warm. A manager came by to see us, said he would bring a fan or solve the problem but nothing was done. The issue was mentioned during check-out and nothing was done about it.

Beautiful hotel in the heart of Trafalgar Square.
Beautiful hotel. Excellent service from front desk check in an check out. Helpful staff. Room large with beautiful amenities. Clearly a 5 star status hotel with 5 star service. Concierge booked 3 tours and 3 plays. Best seats in the house. Continental and off the menu breakfast with many fine choices to meet the dietary needs of many.

Winning the battle but losing the war...
My review of the Trafalgar St. James London will be presented in two parts – a review of the hotel itself, and a review of the hotel organization. The dates of our visit are relevant as well: March 13, 2020 – March 16, 2020 (the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic reaching the UK). Hotel Review: A- We booked our stay for March 2020 at the this hotel to celebrate my mother’s 75th birthday (and her first visit to London) primarily due to its incredible location. The hotel itself is well updated and clean with modern décor. As many other guests have pointed out, the Rooftop Bar has an amazing view of London. From top to bottom, the hotel staff was great and made every effort to be responsive to our requests. Hotel Organization Review: D- We had to end our stay at the hotel earlier than planned due to the rapidly developing COVID-19 situation in London. With my mother being in a “high risk” category, I felt it was in our best interest to return home. Upon returning to the U.S., the Gold Member customer service requested a refund on my behalf. Unfortunately, this request was denied by the hotel as their “refund policy does not allow one in this case” as Eniko from Reservations stated it. If the COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t qualify as a legitimate “case”, I’m not sure what ever would?! Regardless, this is sadly an example of an organization winning the battle but losing the war – and for this, my family will not be staying at any Curio Collection by Hilton hotels again
