This hotel is the nicest hotel I’ve stayed at in London and I’ve stayed in a lot! The whole experience was perfect from start to finish. We visited for our anniversary and we had a wonderful meal at The Game Bird followed by fabulous cocktails outside in the sunshine. The staff couldn’t be more helpful and the service is outstanding. We made our reservation with Ned and he’s the loveliest person to deal with. He made sure everything was brilliant from start to finish! Thank you Ned! The hotel is down a very quiet street near Piccadilly. You’d never believe you were in the heart of London! You can walk through passageways to the hustle and bustle of London near Fortnums and the Ritz or the opposite way to Green park and Buckingham Palace. I can’t wait to return!

Great hotel that I use for business trips. Staff are fantastic from check in, to the America bar and Game bird. I often arrive early from international travel and they always make a plan to get a room for you. Rooms are well laid out and in both my last trips I was upgraded to the stables rooms upstairs. Great showers and a decent size for London. Love the quick access to green and Hyde park especially as a runner. One idea would be to have a complimentary gym laundry bag - for gym gear each day - becoming a standard in the US. Look forward to my next visit next week.

Wonderful stay at the Stafford Hotel! Great service and great amenities and great location. Very close to the Green Park tube. Everyone went out of their way to make us comfortable and provide great information and help on what to go and do. I will always stay at the Stafford when I’m in London.

Apparently the Restaurant is being refurbished. Wasn’t told this in advance -limited menu which was poorly executed. Rooms in the hotel small but comfortable. Service is what you would expect from a Five star hotel…

The Stafford was delightful as always. This was Carolyn's first stay at the Stafford (my birthday present to her). Everything about the Stafford put a huge smile on her face...the luxuriousness of the bathroom...her first Pimms sitting outside at the American Bar...the Mercedes AMG sedan ride to Heathrow. By the time we left, she understood why I'll only stay at the Stafford. Moreover, the wonderfully accommodating and helpful staff helped set up the necessary Covid tests for our return flight to Colorado and went out of their way to find a sweater we left behind.

First of all, when you arrive you are greeted by the kindness of the doormen Andrew and Brett , they really make your trip memorable. I think the staff at the Stafford are what sets this hotel apart from the rest. Everyone is incredibly kind and helpful. It's a level of service that is unsurpassed, and such a pleasure to experience. The hotel itself is fabulous. The rooms are very nice and spacious , I stayed in a Mews suite with beautiful views over the fantastic courtyard, We tried several different meals off the room service menu and everything was delicious. I am now officially overwhelmed with what is actually possible to do with a cauliflower steak .. simply delicious . Also the cocktails in the American bar are outstanding making for a a superb cocktail experience, although take it easy on on the “One fall All” . If you are looking for a beautiful , centrally located hotel in London where you will be treated with the highest level of service , I can not recommend this hotel highly enough. The attention to detail and the kindness of the entire staff really make the Stafford. We will be back. Thankyou so much Joanne & Joseph

My wife and I have just spent another weekend at this wonderful hotel. Visiting here is truly like returning home with such welcoming staff. We have stayed many times and we are never disappointed. On this occasion we enjoyed a meal with friends and the staff in The Game Bird restaurant and The American Bar were fantastic. This is a 5 star gem and we look forward to our next visit.
