We used to stay at the Stafford years ago and this was our first visit under new management. The most lovely surprise was that the staff had not changed and was as friendly and helpful as years gone by.
The hotel has been updated; the lighting is greatly improved. The food and service is excellent. We were upgraded to a king room, but the maid's closet was opposite and it was a bit noisy in the morning.
We used to stay in the mews but the American bar overflows outside now so I imagine it is not the quiet oasis it used to be. It is incredibly expensive but the location is wonderful, especially when you know about the tunnel directly to Green Park. The only thing that was lacking was internet. The free internet connection was useless, and six pounds an hour is out of line for access. Amazing, that really could make a difference in whether we returned. Catering to business expense accounts I suppose.
