The Stafford London
Nestled in the tranquil Saint James’s Place just off Piccadilly, The Stafford London is a treasure chest of history and radiates an English charm that is quintessentially London. This hotel offers an authentic British experience, combining classic design with Victorian elegance.
The accommodation at this Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is spread across three distinct areas. The Main House boasts timeless Victorian detailing, while the Carriage House, formerly a stable for Queen's thoroughbreds, now features traditional English country decor. The Stafford Mews, which opened in 2007, brings a modern twist with its contemporary furnishings.
Adding to the hotel's unique allure is the American Bar, tucked away at the back of the hotel. This bar is a collector's paradise, packed with fascinating curiosities and offering a cozy spot for guests to enjoy a gin fizz or champagne as the sun sets.
The American Bar at The Stafford London is a landmark in itself. Its walls are adorned with a captivating array of artifacts, trinkets, and autographed celebrity photos donated by patrons and guests over the years.
The Stafford London seamlessly blends classic British design with Victorian touches. The lobby is adorned with Queen Anne furnishings, while guest rooms feature a more refined Edwardian design style.
The hotel also boasts a historic wine cellar, built in the 17th century and used as an air-raid shelter during World War II. Housing nearly 8,000 vintages, the 380-year-old Wine Cellars are truly a sight to behold.
The Stafford's location makes it an ideal base for exploring London. Buckingham Palace, the Royal Parks, and the boutiques and galleries of Mayfair and St James’s are all within walking distance.
For a true taste of England, afternoon tea at The Game Bird is a must. This delightful tradition can be enjoyed on a Saturday or Sunday in the summer in the cobblestone courtyard.
The Game Bird, the hotel’s relaxed all-day dining venue, serves up British comfort food with flair. The menu is inspired by locally sourced ingredients, featuring dishes like Lincolnshire smoked eel, steak & ale pudding, and the restaurant’s namesake dish made with roast pigeon.
The chic Champagne Bar at The Game Bird is a hidden gem, perfect for enjoying a glass of bubbly or classic martini before dinner.
Master Sommelier Gino Nardella hosts wine tastings and wine-pairing dinners throughout the year. With over four decades of experience at The Stafford alone, there isn’t a bottle in the cellar he hasn’t tried.
To ensure guests make the most of their stay, executive head concierge Frank Laino has created Frankly Speaking; a roundup of must-visit events and experiences taking place all over London each month.
The rooms at The Stafford London are spacious and well-appointed, exuding a classic Edwardian style. Traditional wooden furnishings, thick tan carpeting, and heavy embroidered curtains with a blue-and-tan floral pattern give the rooms a warm, inviting feel.
The deluxe king room is designed for comfort, featuring a plush king-size bed, a work desk, a velvet-upholstered club chair, and a side table stacked with an impressive selection of magazines.
The American Bar offers more than just drinks. It serves quick breakfasts, alfresco lunches in the private cobblestone courtyard, and signature cocktails crafted by head mixologist Erik Rychnavsky.
The Stafford London offers a range of amenities including 24-hour room service, babysitting services, a gym, meeting rooms, pet-friendly accommodations, and restaurants.
