Had the most marvelous stay at the Stafford together with my sister last August.
The location: in the middle of the Mayfair district, in a quiet street behind the Ritz.Right next to Green Park, it's only a short 5-minute walk to the Buckingham Palace or Picadilly Square.
The room: We stayed in a beautiful room with a king size bed in the Mainhouse. Fluffy pillows (and pillow menu in case you had special requests), Molton Brown products, bathtub (with its own rubber ducky!). I just wished the mattress was a little harder, but that's probably a personal preference.
The breakfast: We pretty much sampled the entire breakfast menu during our 3-night stay at The Stafford and loved the quaint breakfast room. Particular favorites in no particular order included: fresh berries salad, the thick-sliced bacon&waffles, the eggs benedict...
The service: Outstanding. Everyone was extremely helpful and pleasant. from the waitstaff to the concierge through the receptionist. We arrived at 11PM and were able to check-in quickly. We were also able to change dinner reservations last minute, get tickets through the concierge, book transportation early morning, all without problem.
The price: We were lucky as my sister works for another Kempinski hotel and we got a staff rate, so I can't comment on the regular rates.
Overall, The Stafford made our short stay in London a memorable and most comfortable one. Would come back anytime if I had the chance and recommend to whomever wants to experience a little bit of quiet luxury in the middle of busy London!
