When we go to the mountains we tend to avoid the highest peaks because there are more people climbing them just because they are the highest. If you climb the lesser known, 2nd highest mountain, its a much nicer experience because there will be less people and there may only be a metre difference in height! Choosing the Stafford over...

Not only does the Stafford provide one of London's very best locations in St. James, next to Green Park and Mayfair, but it also provides very personal service to guests, with great attention to their needs and individual preferences. The staff makes you feel like it is your own home, if only you were so lucky.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Stafford at the end of a 32 day 8 country business trip so I was tired and in need of some luxury and that's what got.

From the moment we arrived it was a welcoming charming atmosphere. After a very long flight it was a pleasure to be so efficiently and pleasantly received.

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Stafford London is a leading five star hotel in London and defines all that is quintessentially British. Located in the historical neighbourhood of St James's, it is set in a discreet and prestigious location beside the Royal Green Park. Opened as a hotel in 1912 and rich in history since the 1700s, it offers luxurious rooms and dining with an award winning, personalised guest service. The famous American Bar with floor to ceiling memorabilia and 380-year-old wine cellars are a sight to behold. Make sure to ask for a tour of the cellars and the in-house museum; the wine cellars doubled as a bomb shelter during WWII. ... more   less
