My mother and I celebrate my birthday together each year and this year we decided to book The Stafford in St James for the night of my birthday. I'd heard lots of great reviews of the hotel and recently went for delicious dinner there before Christmas, so though it would be a good opportunity to stay there. We checked-in at...

Great location. Staff attentive. However the American Bar menu is poor in comparison to my last visit. Their Club Sandwich which used to be one of the best, is now very poor, heavy and clumsy (using too much Sour dough bread? of all things), poorly filled layers, tough bacon and the last layer has chicken bits slathered in an unidentifiable...

My wife and I stayed at this well located but quiet hotel in the St James's area of London. So handy for the theatre and West End shopping. The staff are attentive, friendly, helpful and very professional. We enjoyed a wonderful dinner with friends in the restaurant and special thanks to the sommelier who gave us a private viewing of...

We stayed at the Stafford hotel last weekend on a family visit to London, and my only regret is we didn't stay longer! It is a beautiful hotel, the staff cannot do enough for you, our room was available on arrival, despite us being very early. The location is ideal, minutes from green park tube station, and walking distance from...

We had the pleasure of staying at The Stafford recently, it was PERFECT and from experience, one of the best hotels in London. Room was excellent, service was excellent, and when we asked for a tour of The Wine Cellars (highly recommended), they obliged immediately. Will definitely stay again.

If you look at my other reviews, you'll know we like this hotel. It is elegant, refined and in the center of everything. Prince Charles and Rupert Murdoch are your neighbors here.

Massive improvements in this hotel over the last twelve months have restored it fully to London's top tier. The Lyttleton Restaurant, once empty, is now well patronised and the food is chractisterically English which befits being in the centre of St.James's. With The Goring and The Beaumont, The Stafford is one of London's best hotels. Buffet breakfast with hot food...

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
