History

Previously known as the Trafalgar Hotel, The Trafalgar St. James London, Curio Collection by Hilton was officially launched in August 2017. This iconic hotel was once home to a shipping company called the Cunard Steamship Company. Housed in a building influenced by Italian architecture, The Trafalgar St. James London is the only hotel in Trafalgar Square. The Art Deco flourishes, unique wall art, plethora of books in the guestrooms, and references to the building’s history have firmly established the hotel as a stylish sanctuary in the city. The hotel’s bespoke carpets were made by Brinton’s, a British carpet brand founded in 1783. The blue and white Axminster carpet design used in the bedrooms ties in with other items in the room, such as the red headboard, subtly representing the Union Jack. The corridor continued the deep blue palette and drew design inspiration for the star pattern from one of Lord Nelson medals: Trafalgar Square of course commemorating Nelson’s victory in the Battle of Trafalgar in the Napoleonic Wars.

The Trafalgar Hotel was opened in August 2000, with a distinctive purple color scheme. Victoria and David Beckham visited that year at Christmas time, and the following year, The Rolling Stones came to spend time in the new roof garden. Before the conversion to a hotel, the building was also used as a set to several films. The boardroom was M’s office in Dr. No (1962), it can be seen in Tom Cruise’s 2014 film Edge of Tomorrow, and also featured in the beloved television series, Doctor Who, in 2013.

After an extensive renovation in 2017, The Trafalgar St. James London was handpicked to become a Hilton’s first Curio Collection by Hilton hotel in the United Kingdom. Blending bold, innovative designs with excellent hospitality and luxury standards, The Trafalgar St. James London, Curio Collection by Hilton has set the standard for upscale hotels in the area. Offering an immersive and truly English experience, the hotel has its own Rooftop dining location that serves up craft cocktails with an inimitable city view. The Trafalgar’s Dining Room offers Mediterranean dining for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Biblio, a living room underneath the hotel, evokes the intimacy of a private members lounge that is open to all guests.

The Trafalgar St. James London, Curio Collection by Hilton, a member of Historic Hotels Worldwide since 2018, dates back to the 18th Century.
