Accor has opened its first MGallery hotel in London.

St Erminís is located in St James in central London, between Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey. It is just a short walk from major West End theatres and Londonís historical sites.

St Erminís is part of Londonís history: during the Second World War, British Prime Minister Sir Winston Churchill sometimes met with his teams in this hotel to organize secret operations. It is also rumored that in the 1950s, a spy used an underground passage linking the hotel to the houses of Parliament to smuggle secret documents out of the Foreign Office. It is said the tunnel still exists, under the majestic staircase that dominates the lobby.

The hotel boasts 331 rooms and owes its singular design to architect Dayna Lee who has successfully combined contemporary decorating features with a classic style creating a friendly and sophisticated atmosphere.

The hotel has three restaurants:

- The Caxton Grill serves stylish European food. The restaurant can cater for 70 guests and has a private dining room.

- The Caxton Terrace, where clients can relax and enjoy views overlooking the courtyard.

- The Caxton Bar, which provides a more casual environment and serves a wide range of drinks as well as a more classical menu.

The hotel also features a fitness area with sports equipment and an exercise room and 14 meeting rooms that can cater for up to 200 people.
