Our Favorite Things: The Trafalgar St. James, London, in The Art of Hospitality’s Hotel Portfolio

Not that you’d want to, but if you did… you could experience the best of London without ever leaving The Trafalgar St. James. The Trafalgar – run by dedicated hoteliers, not a corporation – is a true destination hotel, combining London’s greatest modern elements and showcasing them via design, décor, food, drink and service. Represented by The Art of Hospitality, we know that Duncan Greenfield-Turk, The Trafalgar’s director of sales and marketing, will personally see to it that our clients are catered to, regardless if we book a guestroom or a suite. Our connections with people like Duncan are why CIRE clients travel as VIPs no matter where they go.

The hotel is a historic building with 131 guestrooms and four luxurious suites decorated in true British style. You’ll find bold colors mixed with refined furnishings, plus iconic wall art of London’s music idols, such as The Rolling Stone’s Mick Jagger. Cozy to spacious, the guestrooms feature complimentary WiFi, snacks and soft drinks in the mini bar, along with multiple USB charge points and an array of additional amenities including a Nespresso Coffee machine, bathrobes and mineral water.

The Trafalgar’s suites: The Landseer Suite, The Railton Suite, The Barry Suite and The Trafalgar Suite are aptly named after historic contributors to Trafalgar Square and each has a spectacular view of the landmark they created. The Barry Suite has an unsurpassed view of Nelson’s Column. Overlook the square’s famous bronze lions from The Landseer Suite. The Railton has impressive views of the fountains. The Trafalgar Suite celebrates London’s most iconic square.

You need go no farther than The Trafalgar’s Dining Rooms to join other guests and locals alike for style and great taste. The kitchen serves classic dishes prepared with the finest, fresh and local (when possible) ingredients with a hint of Mediterranean flair, acknowledging London’s cultural melting pot. Head to The Rooftop for a handcrafted cocktail and a view that is the envy of the city. With alfresco and canopy-covered seating, The Rooftop is a year-round experience – rain or shine. Outdoor heaters and cozy blankets keep you warm during cooler months. Small plates are served, table service of course. Begin or end your evening at Biblio, considered the house living room on the lower ground floor. Ambient lighting, deep armchairs and a menu of premium spirits, fine wines and artisan cocktails evoke an intimate club feel.

What distinguishes The Trafalgar from all other London hotels is how each staff member is empowered to create a wondrous place in guests’ lives during their stay. You may find a special, personalized note in your room. You may find their staff picked up on something you’re passionate about and has found a way to intertwine it with your stay. You will find The Trafalgar’s staff genuinely wants to connect with guests, which turns The Trafalgar into a home rather than just another place to stay. 

Luxury and authenticity is one of the reasons The Art of Hospitality has The Trafalgar in its collection. Hotels represented in The Art of Hospitality’s collection are complementary, not just in style and amenities, but also having a culture of exceptional service. They seek out properties that challenge their staff to go the extra mile for each guest – truly the art of hospitality.

Going the extra mile is a point of distinction that CIRE Travel wholeheartedly believes in. If you’re traveling to London for work or pleasure, consider letting us reserve your room or suite at The Trafalgar. From design, décor, food, drink and service, it’s the full Monty.
