“Sorry for the delay.... the BEST in London.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

I had the pleasure of staying at this hotel in the winter of 2011 when they were doing a major renovation... couldn't have been a better expierence. The entire staff ... from the door man to the makeshift conceirge they had -- was just ABOVE and beyond professional. I guess what I am trying to say is if I experienced this level of perfect service during a renovation ... imagine how even better it will now be!! I stayed in the new wing... Room 533.... awesome. Even the automated elevator lady made me feel at home: "doors opening" ... Close to everyhting London: Trufitt & Hill for a hairdut, museums, RAClub, The Golden Lion for a Guiness but nothing beats their inhouse bar/rest: The American Bar. Outfiited with gads of cool American sports memorabilia including my squash racquet that I left in the room and they graciously added to the bar! Make sure you have a nice gin and tonic and cigar on the outside patio of the American Bar... service exceptional and the best olives and chips ever! I've stayed at lots of other places in London but this place trumps... simply the best! See you in 2013! M. Morgan

Room Tip: They're all excellent!

Dear Mr. Morgan,

Thank you so very much for your fantastic review. My team and I are truly flattered (and we all agreed that your review makes up for the delay!). I am so pleased you enjoyed the American Bar and your stay in one of our Stafford Mews Junior Suites. Your squash racquet is a great addition to our memorabilia in The American Bar - thank you very much for entrusting us with it!

I very much look forward to welcoming you back 'home' in 2013!

Kind regards,

Leon

When you are welcomed by the excellent staff with a "welcome home" you are immediately at ease and relaxed. Not only are all of the staff here fantastic, the rooms are comfortable and the biggest plus is how quiet it is. You do not even realise that you are in central London.
A great hotel

Delighted with our stay here. Extremely comfortable, the bed was like sleeping on a cloud. Room service excellent and the food was delicious! Very friendly helpful team in every department. Great location! Not far from anywhere, and yet extremely peaceful.

Just got back from six great nights at the Stafford, now flawlessly run by the Kempinski group. It has the feel of a private home, with lovely public rooms and fireplaces, and a great bar, the American Bar, dating from the Second World War. The Stafford is in a quiet lane off St. James Street, just a few blocks from Picadilly, Green Park, Jermyn Street and Bond Street shopping, the best restaurants, as well as frequent buses to Knightsbridge and the theater district. We found it easy to get around from there, and it was a wonderful place to return to at the end of the day.
Our room was freshly decorated to the highest standard, with warmly muted tones, great pictures on the walls, and an oh-so-comfortable bed. The large bathroom was all-marble and the water pressure was excellent. Amenities included bottled water with turn-down service.
This is a first-rate place, and perfect for anyone who wants to feel "at home" in London.

Room Tip: We had a Deluxe King room, but for those ready to spend a bit more, there are rooms off the mews tha...

Thank you very much for your very complementing review. It is very pleasing to learn how much you have enjoyed your stay and that we are your London home. We put great emphasis on atmosphere and service and it is great that you felt exactly that. Our beds are especially manufactured for the Stafford in the UK which I believe makes them so very comfortable and in all hotels, regardless of category, the one thing is crutial: A good night's sleep.

I look forward to welcoming you back 'home' in the hopefully not too distant future.

This was a great stay. The main things that were good in the hotel and really stood out were the beds, restaurants, and service at the hotel. The beds here were some of the best hotel ones I've ever slept on. The bar in the hotel, American Bar, was a very interesting bar. It is fairly small with an outdoor patio, and is filled with polo and horse racing memorabilia. They actually serve you food on a tray there which you eat on your lap. I suggest you get the fish and chips if you go there. The service at the hotel was also excellent. Aside from the basic hotel things such as fetching a taxi and bringing you bags to your room, the staff seemed to all remember our names by the time they brought us up to our room. Overall, I thought of the hotel most like a boutique; The rooms were somewhat small, and it was tucked away in small ally way. This hotel might not be as large and popular as other high class hotels in london such as the Dorchester, but its in a great location and is vary quiet.

Thank you for sharing your feedback. I am pleased to learn that you have enjoyed your stay with us. Our beds are manufactured in Great Britain and my Executive Housekeeper chooses the linen and duvets very carefully to ensure a very good night's sleep for all our guests. Of course I am also delighted you enjoyed our level of service which is what The Stafford is all about.
