Sofitel St James: The one offering more than just Tetley’s tea

Scarlet Thinking’s Paula Gardner has specific spots she takes clients to, she detailed in a blog, and among them is Sofitel St James – a hotel that’s unusual enough to make a subtle impression. More specifically, she recommended the Rose Lounge.

“The Rose Lounge at this five star hotel is one of my very favourite places to take clients, especially women. You can settle in snug sofas and enjoy a pampered meeting over rose tea and macaron, or choose from one of the many other teas available,” she said.

“Service is always attentive, and I’ve occasionally been lucky enough to be there when they’ve had a harpist. If the Rose Lounge is full, or you’re looking for something a bit less girlie, the bar is equally sophisticated and still has that luxurious touch, but is often a little quieter during the day.”

Maybe the latter point makes the bar just what you’re looking for. But it offers an elegant setting with less noise than your average restaurant would provide. The hotel itself has a few meeting rooms available if you prefer more privacy.
