We stayed in the Stafford in Spring of 2015. We moved there after discovering that the hotel we'd initially booked was far more noisy than we'd anticipated. We were looking for something quiet and comfortable, with the sort of seemingly effortless service that a great hotel has. We were not disappointed. They were warm and welcoming without being chatty and...

What a lovely place! We arrived a bit harried and the staff quickly and expertly put us at ease. Flawless check-in and service for 3 days to the point where we hated to leave! It looks like we may be back in February or March! Cannot say enough about The Stafford.

Is this place the best kept secret in London?

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.
