We have stayed in one of The Carriage rooms for the last five days. Across from our room is the American Bar. People flock to this bar after work and are quit noisy until well after midnight, There is no chance that you will be able to sleep in this noise. The rest if the stay at The Stafford is... More

The Stafford, in St. James' Place, is an island of peace and tranquillity right in the center of London. For English standards, the rooms are quite spacious, well equipped, have plenty of storage space and a superb bathroom (watch out for the shower: it is rather forceful and reminiscent of experiencing a tropical downpour). The beds are extremely comfortable, with... More

I'd recommend the stafford to anyone visiting London, particularly if you have business in St. James/Whitehall. Incredibly convenient, terrific service, wonderful beds (if the rooms are a bit small). Couldn't have asked for a nicer stay.

The Stafford did an excellent job in making our family trip to London excellent. The staff gave us suggestions on traveling on the tube and several outside pubs for eating. We have stayed at the Stafford before and this time it was excellent as in the past. The food in the dining room and in the American bar was excellent.

Excellent Hotel in a great location. Service is excellent, everything is clean, very good bar. Location makes getting around very easy. Also close proximity to parks for running. Have stayed there on numerous occasions and plan to stay there again on future trips to London.

We chose this hotel because we like the smaller boutique hotels with attention to service. The staff are a tremendous team who treated us with a personal touch at all times. The hotel was located within close proximity of Buckingham Palace and we were able to walk to many places on our list to see. Also, we have to say... More

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood 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.
