My partner and I stayed in The Stafford Hotel in London following a recommendation from a family member. The hotel is situated close to Green Park station (5min walk) so is in a great location for exploring the city. Buckingham Palace is just a short walk through Green Park (approx 7min), so again ideal for anyone eager to see the... More

Really nice comfortable traditional bar serving great cocktails and drinks. In the heart of St James. A lot of American memorabilia on the walls and ceiling there is a really relaxing atmosphere. Hotel itself is great although the rooms are a bit over priced.

I arrived to the stunning elegance of the Stafford and was immediately given the "red carpet" treatment. Upon learning my name once, the staff addressed me by name the entire visit.

Just left after 4 night stay at the Stafford. Enjoyed everything about the hotel. Small, inviting, comfortable common areas.....excellent service but discreet. Outdoor seating for drinks and lunch was a big plus. Rooms were large and comfortable. My new favorite in London.

This hotel located in St. James Place in central London has maintained superb service,quality and a sense of home away from home since I first visited some forty years ago. It is smaller than some of the other well known hotels in London which allows the staff to know its guests and provide more personal service.

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...

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
