It is almost a year since my last visit to The Stafford and sadly I was only able to stay overnight on this occasion en route from Paris. However The Stafford remains my first choice London Hotel. We received a wonderful "welcome home" when checking in and were extremely grateful for the suite upgrade. The hotel and service from its... More

Stayed for our second time at the Stafford for 4 nights last week. We were welcomed back upon check in and shown to the Deluxe King room we booked. It was spacious and bright (though not much of a view) but the bed was amazingly comfy and the AC worked - which is key in a rare London heat wave!... More

We visited the hotel on Saturday evening as one of our friends had vouchers from Top table. A glass of very nice champagne and three courses for £60 per head. I must say I am not a fan of eating in hotel restaurants, but after this experience I certainly have changed my mind. We had a table for six in... More

My husband wanted to stay near Green Park/Mayfair/St. James on this trip to London so I began looking for a 5 star property that wasn't ridiculous in price. I booked my stay through the British Airways website and thought it was a very reasonable rate. When we arrived in London, we walked briefly through Green Park and easily found the... More

What an amazing experience I had at the stafford! This place is completely over the top and in the middles of everything you need. Walk to most of the London tourist sites and a few blocks from the underground. I do not have enough superlatives for not only the hotel but the staff. The rooms are impeccable. The staff is... More

The reviews are spot on, this is finest small hotel I have ever stayed in, it is near perfection. The staff at the Stafford without exception show a gracious commitment to customer... More
