What a lovely hotel-an absolute oasis of quiet and calm but just a few minutes stroll from Picadilly, Jermyn Street, Pall Mall, Bond Street, etc.- in fact most of the major places of interest in London are not far away. We pulled up outside the door, our bags were taken in from our car which was valet-parked for us. Our...

The Stafford is one of the greatest hotels I have ever stayed at. Walking into the lobby is more like coming home than arriving at a hotel. The rooms, particularly in the mews, are amazing. Comfortable beds, ample space and all the right amenities are the hallmarks. As wonderful as the physical space is, it is the people that really...

No surprises here. It is a fine hotel with very nice rooms, common areas and superb service. The bar named the American bar, is very popular busy and loud. There is another calmer place to have drinks tea or coffee where a conversation can be held. A huge breakfast spread with a big selection of fruit and baked goods. All...

Staying in St. James's

Neighborhood Profile
St. James's
Perennially fashionable since the days of Henry VIII, the aristocratic “Clubland” of St James's is a premier destination for high end craft and bespoke design. Here you’ll lose count of the Royal Warrants (which indicate that the Royal Family patronizes the establishment) seen in shop front windows, even during a short stroll to bordering Green Park or St James’s Park. With the brightly lit and constantly buzzing junction of Piccadilly Circus at its northeast corner and none of Central London too far away, this is an surprisingly central and accessible part of town, especially given its prosperous demeanor.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Stafford London is a leading five star hotel in London and defines all that is quintessentially British. Located in the historical neighbourhood of St James's, it is set in a discreet and prestigious location beside the Royal Green Park. Opened as a hotel in 1912 and rich in history since the 1700s, it offers luxurious rooms and dining with an award winning, personalised guest service. The famous American Bar with floor to ceiling memorabilia and 380-year-old wine cellars are a sight to behold. Make sure to ask for a tour of the cellars and the in-house museum; the wine cellars doubled as a bomb shelter during WWII. ... more   less
