Charming, old world hotel tucked away in a quiet cul de sac off the stylish St. James Street and Piccadilly. Recommend staying in the Mews Suites for the full experience, plus it has a covered walkway directly to St. James. Service impeccable and their restaurant is excellent. Don't miss afternoon tea in the hotel's living room.

Our room was not in the main building but in the Mews. While I knew the it would not be the normal matchbox you get in downtown London I was not prepared for this. It was beautiful, it was spacy and the bathroom was huge. It felt like a shame to go out as it made you want to stay... More

The Stafford is about two blocks from St. James Park and about a block from the luxury stores on Bond street and Mayfair. Though it is in a busy section of London, it is away from the commotion, as it is tucked down a chic side street. The hotel is divided between two adjoining buildings: rooms in one being more...

Whatever was needed in our rooms was taken care of very quickly. Paul provided us with great restaurant recommendations and followed up asking about our experience. True... More

We traveled to London with four teenage sons. The adjoining rooms in the muse section were absolutely perfect for our family. The staff was friendly but not too over the top. The maid service was impeccable and the location allowed us to walk to Buckingham Palace and Piccadilly Circus in 6 minutes. Perfect!

I booked to stay here with my wife for her birthday and I must say that both the hotel and staff were incredible. The hotel is very well decorated and kept in great order, it is very luxurious whilst remaining very comfortable. The staff are very friendly and can't do enough for you. Unlike some luxury hotels The Stafford does... More

While they've changed things around a couple time in the last few years, this is the ultimate British experience. Intimate location, great food, with a wonderful location near Bond Street and secret gate to Green Park.

Excellent location, secluded but short stroll into the heart of Mayfair. Staff friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the Mews Suite, American Bar and Courtyard. Nice change to the bustling glitzy Mayfair hotels. Would recommend and return.

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.
