My wife and I stayed at the Stafford for a holiday for seven days and nights in July. Ambience was traditional and elegant, and the service was impeccable, provided courteously and promptly without fail. It's always a pleasure being welcomed back by name at the end of the day. Our package included breakfast, which was superbly prepared; for example, a small silver jug of hot milk was brought to the table for coffee or tea. The American Bar at the hotel was classy, we realized, because it didn't feature wall to wall television monitors or canned music as we are accustomed to in North America, and we appreciated the dress code. Conversation is still valued in British pubs and bars. Our Deluxe King room was satisfactory in size; a little tight moving around, but not unreasonably so, and above all elegantly appointed. The hotel's location was superb as well, just a few steps to Green Park, St. James Park, the tube, and Piccadilly to the west and north, and a 15-minute or so walk to the National Gallery and Trafalgar Square to the east. A first-class and memorable stay, all round.
