elite St James's Hotel and Club
has been put up for sale. The London Times reports
that the luxury townhouse hotel in has been listed for £60 million by the Landesberg and Rosenberg families, property investors who have owned the property for the last five years. They bought the propery for £20 million and then spent millions on renovations. The result is an elegant destination that includes the fine dining restaurant Seven Park Place. The hotel is currently part of the Althoff group of hotels.
All rooms boast handmade silk wallpaper, black lacquered furniture, handcrafted Murano glass chandeliers, polished natural stones and chrome glass fittings in the bathroom and mattresses handmade from Hypnos. The Times reports that one possibility for the property is for it to be snapped up by Britannia Hospitality, which recently bought the nearby Stafford hotel, to create one large property. The St. James Club opened in 1980. Members of the private club included Michael Caine, Liza Minnelli, Lord Attenborough and Dudley Moore.
