What a lovely place! We arrived a bit harried and the staff quickly and expertly put us at ease. Flawless check-in and service for 3 days to the point where we hated to leave! It looks like we may be back in February or March! Cannot say enough about The Stafford.

What a fabulous way to spend Christmas Day - The Stafford Hotel in London was perfect!! The beautiful suites we were allocated for our family were unbelievably luxurious, Christmas lunch was delicious, the staff were wonderfully attentive, and the excellent GM introducing the Queens Speech was a lovely touch. The special atmosphere was one that we will always remember, it...

Is this place the best kept secret in London? From the phonecall to book a room for a surprise "big birthday" stay for my husband, through to the stay itself, right to check out, I can't think of anything but excellent comments for The Stafford. We had stayed before, decades ago, and loved the experience then - a real treat...

We stayed here for 2 nights. It was elegant and quiet. The neighborhood rolls up the sidewalks at night, the hotel is on a hidden back lane. We were in 416, a junior suite with a view of the top of the London Eye at night. The American Bar is a quiet place for a sandwich or a drink. The...

We visited the Stafford for drinks after a lunch at the nearby Quagkino's. There was 10 of us and we had 3 rounds of drinks. The courtyard where we sat was lovely, quaint, quiet and decorated beautifully with lit Christmas trees. We drank the house bitter which was gorgeous. As we only drank I can only offer my recommendation on...

The Stafford has reclaimed its former elegance and hospitality! It had a bad time in the 1990's, but is now a very enjoyable small hotel located in the heart of the west end. Highly recommended! It's dining room is quiet and elegant, and the food is good, although not excellent. The front desk is very helpful, and always willing to...

I checked into the Stafford after quite literally running a 10K at midnight, clubbing, packing, catching a 6am flight with the children from Bangalore, India and arriving in London without hotel reservation. My requirements were simple: give me a suite with a separate bedroom, comfortable pillows, and let me sleep. Please. The Stafford picked us up in a swank grey...

Probably the finest overall home away from home for Christmas that you could ever find! The entire staff from the GM to Housekeeping was focused on making the stay outstanding. The rooms, restaurants and overall hotel exceeded our very high expectations. My family and I (eight altogether) had an incredible time with no complaints!

Enjoyed this hotel immensely. The staff was very accommodating and the location of the hotel was convenient for shopping and fine dining. Our room was small, but it was a package deal with AA which usually means not the best room at the hotel, but it was fine for us for a long weekend.

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
