I absolutely love The Stafford Hotel . It is quite simply the best 5 star hotel in London. Conveniently located between St James' St and Green Park , ideal for anyone visiting London whether that be business or leisure.

The famous American Bar is a must visit with a great cigar terrace in a private courtyard. They have just launched a brand new restaurant , The Game Bird, which I have not tried yet but have heard great reviews so far.

A special mention to Stuart Proctor, the GM and all the staff for always making me feel at home .

Dear qunmber - Many thanks for taking the time to review the hotel. I am delighted that you continue to enjoy The Stafford and in particular The American Bar and our cigar terrace. The Game Bird is a fantastic addition to the hotel and is indeed getting rave reviews. I hope you will have the opportunity to dine there very soon, and we look forward to welcoming you home in the near future. Kind regards Stuart.

I got a chance to travel to London after a business trip. I planned to stay at both a British boutique hotel and an American brand name hotel during my three day visit. Stafford caught my eyes because the interior design and concierge awards, and it went beyond my expectation!
The room is lovely and cozy. Every detail of the building just made an architecture nerd such as me fall in love. The American Bar brought a touch of the rich culture of the hotel.
The best part about the hotel is the staff. Everyone is a joy to speak to. The concierge staff went above and beyond to help me planning my short trip in London. The personal attention is really something I can't find at a chain hotel. Definitely will come back here!

My family and I stayed three wonderful nights and enjoyed every minute. The hotel is luxurious, but that's not the hard part, is it? This hotel also had an unbeatable location--a quiet dead-end street with a back passage out to Green Park and Buckingham Palace on one side and easy access to all the West End attractions on the other. We made good use of the short walk to the Green Park tube station, and it was fun to see so many people sunning themselves in Green Park during the unusually fine weather.

The staff was friendly and helpful, and we enjoyed the hotel bar several times during our stay. We highly recommend The Stafford London!

I recently stayed at the Stafford hotel and had a great experience. The staff at check-in were welcoming and polite and when I was shown to my room they made sure I was made aware of all the rooms features so I could fully enjoy my stay. The room was lovely - decorated in a modern style but felt very homely. The bed was very comfortable and as a result I had a great nights sleep. The bathroom was well equipped with nice products and lots of soft, fluffy towels! Check-out was as professional as my check-in experience and I look forward to staying at the Stafford again!
