My son and I stayed here for six nights and we felt like we were constantly pampered. The staff and Peter, the concierge, were absolutely wonderful. We had complimentary breakfast and it was simply delicious especially the bacon and eggs. The breakfast staff work quite hard to please and ensure that breakfast is a dining experience. Room 312 was large... More

We just spent almost a week at the Stafford. It was our first visit and we were close to overwhelmed. It is relatively small, discretely located on a back street in St. James and thus well located for sightseeing, shopping and just taking in London. The staff was wonderful and the Concierge certainly earned his crossed keys during our visit.... More

My husband and I went to London for work but stayed in central London for a long weekend prior for fun. The Stafford is very conveniently located next to Green Park and the tour buses, next to the Ritz Carlton, and a 8 minute taxi to almost any of the theatres and shopping experiences. It's also close to a couple... More

Exceptional location, warm and cosy design, superb bathroom, friendly and efficient personnel. The American bar is a reminder of the war days when US troops were stationed; the cellars were once used as a bomb shelter; the courtyard happens to be indulgent to smokers.

Great Location, close to the heart of London. Excellent service in room and in the facilities that the hotel provides. I would use this hotel everytime I go to London not only for business purposes but also with my family. Staff very well prepared and kind. Great atmosphere in general.

I am an industry professional and paid for my stay at The Stafford as part of a family vacation. This was my first stay at the property. As I've inspected more than 25 top-tier hotels in London, I can safely say The Stafford ranks at the very top of the list and is rather distinctive as compared to other, upper... More

I even had a chocolate brownie with a candle in it.If in London pop in and try yourself. Thank you to all the staff for your... More

For a top, prime central London hotel the guest is made to feel very much at home. The location, style, comfort and attention from all staff cannot be faulted. We live in London but wanted to stay somewhere special for the weekend where we could be spoiled. We were not disappointed. A huge thank you to all the staff.

I had arranged an early evening business meeting in the American bar. The location is great, the staff were excellent and the choice of wine was exceptional. We had a light meal in the bar and it was excellent. I will be back soon.

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.
