Located at Trafalgar Square within easy walking distance to many of London’s key tourist attractions the hotel comprises 131 rooms. It is also bolstered by strong amenities, comprising several food and beverage outlets, including a rooftop bar with good views.
A new restaurant will soon open on the ground floor, which will be operated by an Asian restaurant group.
The hotel will be headed up by Federico Ciampi, the current General Manager of 100 Queen’s Gate, who has been promoted to the role of Cluster General Manager, making a welcome return to a hotel he managed some 4 years ago.
Alykhan Kassam, CEO at Crimson Hotels said of the move: “We are delighted to have acquired The Trafalgar St James Hotel with the property making a welcome addition to our portfolio of London hotels. We are looking forward to working with the hotel team, under Federico’s leadership, to firmly establish the property as one of the best in the capital.”
