Reviewed 28 December 2015

Enjoyed this hotel immensely. The staff was very accommodating and the location of the hotel was convenient for shopping and fine dining. Our room was small, but it was a package deal with AA which usually means not the best room at the hotel, but it was fine for us for a long weekend.

Have stayed several times over the years and enjoyed the rooms, hospitality, staff, atmosphere. It really does feel like home, and you are made incredibly welcome. The rooms/suites in the mews area are particularly impressive. Just recently I went with some friends to the American Bar at The Stafford for pre dinner drinks. It has great atmosphere and memorabilia in...

This hotel easily ranks among the top five of the, literally, hundreds of hotels I have stayed in during 50+ years of heavy global travel for business and pleasure. The hotel runs like a well oiled machine, responsive to any need yet not intrusively so, so that there is a peaceful mien so rare in today's world. The suites in...

A hidden jewel with 5 stars hotel standards. Bedding is spectacular: you are cushioned in smooth, feather light duvet with airy pillows. The very best a hotel can offer. I loved the very British interior of impeccable taste with great attention to detail. Service is outstanding and personal. Staff is very dedicated (even though smiling sometimes seems optional). Great location...

Very close to Green Park and tube this quite hotel is actually in the heart of everything. Easy walk to Picadilly. Quite and unassuming this small hotel is worthy of 5 stars. Food is expensive so best to get the breakfast plan

This is an excellent quality hotel that deserve many acolites. It is very well located, but in a quite area of St. James where you are close to the action but far from the noise. I adore the bar with amazing decoration and waiters that read your mind and are ready to serve you without being invasive. My only critics...

Staying in St. James's

Neighbourhood 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
