I stayed two nights at the Stafford on May 8 & 9, 2007. This was my first stay although I had visited the hotel and looked at a sampling of rooms in 2006. The first night I stayed in a deluxe junior suite in the main building and the second night in a deluxe junior suite in the new mews building that had only been open one week. Both rooms were large, comfortable and quiet. I preferred the mews suite because of its nicer bath and newness.
My main building room was in the rear and was extremely quiet. It had a separate sitting room with a good reading lamp. The bath was fairly small, but had a separate shower. The room was furnished traditionally with king bed, chair and sofa. Actually, both rooms had two twin beds pushed together to form a king which I found satisfactory.
My mews room was on the rear of that building overlooking the Park Place cul-de-sac. It had one large room with a sitting area at one end with only a loveseat--no upholstered chair. The TV was flat panel, wide-screen, whereas the main building room had an older conventional TV. There was some street noise, but it was muffled and acceptable to me. The bath was huge with two sinks, a separate shower and heated tile floor.
The Stafford is excellently located a short walk through the park from the Green Park tube station. There are many nearby restaurants on and near Piccadilly. It is walking distance to many attractions, including the theater district. The general neighborhood in nice and upscale. A laptop is on a table in the lobby for free guest use and was almost always available when I wanted to use it.
Breakfasts were very good--from the menu--no buffet--in the attractive restaurant. I had dinner one night in the New American Bar and enjoyed it. I didn't eat dinner in the more upscale restaurant.
Overall, I found the Stafford to be a very pleasant place to stay and will stay there again. I would classify it as a 5-star hotel.
