Just a ten-minute walk from England's royal palace stands this former "gentlemen's chamber" for traveling aristocracy. Renovated and reopened in 2008, St. James's Hotel and Club tapped Michelin-awarded chef William Drabble to serve gourmet French cuisine and wine tastings at his own Seven Park Place restaurant. The 19th century rooms were gutted and refurnished, complete with modern art, omnipresent wifi, and iPod docking stations.
