Taj 51 Buckingham Gate Suites

Glamorous, residential and contemporary

What it is

Stately suites near the Queen’s residence.

What it isn't

An edgy scenester magnet.

What we think

Three minutes from Buckingham Palace, the Taj delivers a dramatic sense of arrival: to reach the front doors, you must walk under a massive stone arch and past two sentinel stone elephants. The property’s 85 suites and residences are divided among three red-brick Victorian townhouses. The attentive, home-away-from-home sensibility begins at check-in—which takes place, over tea, in the lobby—and is laced through every aspect of the stay: complimentary cocktails are served in the library, personal butlers are available upon request, and rooms are fastidiously stocked (even kitchens have aprons and oven mitts). The common spaces and enormous suites blend the quintessential elements of Westminster— highly polished woodwork, leather-bound books, gilt-framed mirrors—with Taj’s Indian roots— fresh orchids, dashes of vibrant color, and Quilon, the hotel’s Michelin-starred Indian restaurant.

You're here because

You want the warmth of home, but with the elevated service of a Taj hotel.

The Moment

From your balcony, you watch the colorfully illuminated fountain dancing in the sanctum of St. James’s Court, and trace the rambling figures of its surrounding frieze.
