St. Giles was a religious figure who lived from the late 7th century to the early 8th century and became the patron saint of the disabled and a reputable miracle worker. Whilst the St. Giles Hotel London can't be said to work miracles, it is a certainly a pleasant place to stay and bats well above its league as a 3 star hotel, with a large array of facilities and services.
The hotel provides guests with a selection of rooms from the Single, Double and Twin Standard Rooms to the larger Deluxe Rooms with their separate seating areas, and the luxurious Executive Suites with their additional amenities, some including a bath tub and bathroom television.
The hotel has a large selection of both dining and exercise options. Il Grasso Restaurant serves a good value Italian Cuisine in a setting that is very simplistic and informal, making no pretensions about itself. Hakuba Restuarant and Bar, on the other hand, is much more elegant, serving Japanese food in a Japanese dining setting. Finally, the Chikara Restaurant serves a mix of Chinese and Malaysian dishes, whilst its counterpart, The Lazy Dog Bar, is an informal drinks venue that stays open late into the night.

There's also a sauna and steam room and over 100 fitness classes a week. there are also a range of conference and meeting facilities for groups as small as two to as large as 195.
