This was our first time staying at this hotel and based on our 6 day visit, it will certainly not be our last. This hotel is 5 stars in every possible way. Location wise, you cannot find a better hotel. Tucked away in St. James it is on a very quiet street (we had some of the best night's sleeps...

Dear Jan P - It is a real pleasure to read your review. I am thrilled you had such a fantastic stay at The Stafford, and that we even laid on some sunshine for you to enjoy! The "secret passage" into Green Park is perfect for joggers and as you mention links you into both St James's and Hyde Park...

If I could give The Stafford 100 stars, I would. The staff take great care of their guests and make it feel like you're coming home, especially if you're a returning guest! Excellent location about 10 minutes walk from Piccadilly Circus, the theater district, Buckingham Palace, Mayfair shopping, all while feeling totally secluded in a quiet side street. Green Park,...

The Staff of the Stafford treat you like Royalty. The Concierge (Fernando & Brett) are second to no one. They got us reservations when we couldn't; even prior to our arrival and were fountains of knowledge. Once you arrive the staff is impeccable. From Checking in (My wife loved the Pink Jackets) to the restaurant staff they are great. And...

Just spent five days at The Stafford London -- excellent service, gorgeous room, great location, and lovely staff. I had a busy week of business, including dinner for 24 at the Sutherland Room and several business meetings. The Stafford Team delivered everything flawlessly. We sampled the menu from the new Game Bird, and loved it. Congratulations to the General Manager...

It is several years since I last stayed here but this hotel still has the best atmosphere of any hotel in London.

This was my third stay at The Stafford in as many years. I used to stay at another hotel but switched just by chance (and friends' recommendations) and have not looked back!

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
