I've tried for several years to find an amazing hotel in London....and finally it's happened. It seemed if the hotel was good, the location was not. If the bedrooms (and beds) were luscious, then the staff lacked training, but finally - all things have converged perfectly at the Stafford. The location is amazing, and secluded on a back street with...

Dear AlohaScubaguy I am delighted that you have found your "home in London" at The Stafford. As you say, our location is second to none, and our delightful courtyard at the rear of the hotel is a real oasis in the centre of London. It is particularly gratifying to read that you received such excellent service across the hotel, from...

We came to London for a weekend break with our 4year old daughter, and from other TripAdvisor reviews the best deal for our needs was working out to be The Stafford - we wanted a nice hotel that we could spend time in comfortably due to the winter weather and being tied to bedtimes due to travelling with a child...

My recent stay at The Stafford Hotel was a celebration and total splurge for my daughter and me. The staff met my every expectation with complete understanding and follow-up and were very relational!

My wife and I have stayed in many fine hotels in London over the years, and this was our first time at the Stafford. This time we decided to stay in a smaller hotel that might offer a more intimate and friendly setting, and we were not disappointed. Besides the excellent location, the Stafford has an outstanding staff that look...

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.

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...

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
