My husband and I stayed at The Stafford with our 3 daughters/son. We could not have asked for any better care, attention and warmth from the staff. Excellent concierges, front desk staff. Wait staff at breakfast were always courteous and attentive, and we also enjoyed an excellent dinner. The American Bar is one of the best places in all of London to relax and enjoy a drink.

This was our second trip to the Stafford and it remains the best location and best BED in London. Tucked into a corner right off Green Park in St. James Place, it is just steps from the tube, the fantastic royal parks, and many of the great historic sites of London.

The rooms are quiet, spacious (for London) and definitely LUXE! The four poster bed was heavenly! Even the roll away bed for my daughter was wonderfully appointed and a fresh baked gingerbread man arrived on a china plate when we returned from a day a site seeing.

Thank you Stafford Hotel! You are my home in London!

We have stayed in hotels in London and many other cities, but this has to beone of the very best in our opinion!

The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful and courteous and we were upgraded to a Junior Suite in the Mews on arrival which was absolutely wonderful.

We had lunch out on the terrace which was a very peaceful location. You would never imagine you were in the centre of London and yet we were only a walk away from Soho where we were meeting for dinner in the evening.

What else can I say but " A perfect hotel in a perfect location"

The Stafford is located in the heart of Mayfair and has great access to shopping, public transport, and the parks. It is in a quiet location at the end of a mews that keeps the outside noise to a minimum and combined with very comfortable beds, makes for a great nights sleep. Despite being an older, quaint building, the hotel has very modern amenities including a modern fitness centre. Given its proximity to Green Park, I didn't use the facilities often a I chose to run in the parks. The food was pricey but was of great quality. The staff were both friendly and professional.

Room Tip: Queen size rooms are small but efficient.

I've been to this hotel for 5 nights on July 2011. The location is great - 5 minutes walk from Green Park station tube and 5 minutes walk from Piccadilly Street. In spite of the central location it's a quiet neighborhood.
Because the hotel building where I've slept is all wooden built, you hear creaking and squeak sounds whenever your neighbors of other rooms - move, a phenomena which required inserting ear plugs from time to time. I've been in the main building, as I requested, but maybe other parts of the hotel are newer and thus with less creaking sounds. One has to find out and write it here.
I got a very nice room: no. 326 but with no view to the court yard (although I've asked as per other tripadvisor recommendations). The bed was huge and comfortable; I wish I could have it at home.
The fluffy white towels in the clean bathroom were pampering and sweet smelling.
The dinning room is beautiful and there's a service with a-la-carte menu. This fact though has 2 disadvantages:
1. it's very slow - usually you're asked to sit aside and wait for a free table. Also it affects the service for your table - because everything is cooked especially for you. If you value time it could be a problem.
2. Because there is no buffet you order for specific dishes from the menu and you cannot choose small bites from a range of delicatessen. For someone who appreciates rich morning breakfasts it's a shame.
There was free Wi-Fi which enabled easy Skype talks and surfing.

Room Tip: ask for a room with no wooden walls - if there's any

Thank you for writing a review and posting some great pictures of our Hotel. I'm pleased to hear that you enjoyed your stay and I would encourage you to try our Mews building, as this was built only 4 years ago so does not suffer from teh creaking that comes with the history of a 350 year old building. Thanks for your comments regarding breakfast, which will be taken on board as we review our practices and procedures.

Order a Tanqueray 10 Dry Martini and circumnavigate the American Bar at The Stafford looking in wonderment at the World War Two memorabilia, and more, that adorn the walls of this fine establishment. Eat and drink outside in the sheltered courtyard on a sunny day in London before visiting the many historic shops in nearby St. James'. Highly recommended.
