Historical Traveller Reviews of The Stafford Hotel
A really good hotelfrom Steve1001
Our room was very comfortable, and the american bar is worth the stay alone. Really bizarre collection of baseball caps, signed photos and more which give it real atmosphere. And as has already been mentioned, excellent service again.
As for the complaint re the noise in an earlier review I find that extremely harsh. This hotel is tucked away off any main streets and the noise is limited. If you're going to stay in the centre of London then surely you expect there is going to be some sort of noise!
My only minor quibble was that when we called down for a sandwich and a drink at 2.30am the night porter asked us if we realised that it was 2.30am which seemed slightly cheeky since the room service menu clearly states it's available 24 hours. Anyway...
Lovely hotel, great location.
Loved the Stafford!!!from HolAngel
I regularly pop in for traditional afternoon tea on a Sunday. I also love having dinner in the American Bar - fantastic burgers and club sandwiches, all served by a barman who remembers your name.
Best of all is actually staying at the Stafford. The staff are like family. Nothing is too much trouble. Forget going to the Ritz or one of the big touristy hotels in London. The Stafford has far more class and is thus filled with people who really know the difference between "flashy" and "elegant".
Great Location, very quietfrom Maribeth07

Okay...from A TripAdvisor Member
However, the bathrooms were very nice, and you get a nice, big, buffet-style breakfast. People there were pretty friendly.
Nice but not for mefrom A TripAdvisor Member
Maybe I caught the hotel during a bad time since I had to wait a long time for porters and front desk service. In the bar I was reminded that I should really be dressed formal and only served because there were not a lot of other guests.
The location is very good and there is nothing wrong with the Stafford but I would not come back since there are many better choices for my taste.
Superb.from A TripAdvisor Member
The staff in the bar were especially charming. If you ever ventured in by yourself they would engage you in conversation to put you at your ease. They of course would also remember what you had been drinking on the previous evening. It was great fun to watch them gently flirting with the permanent resident as she sat at the bar on her own stool and told stories of her time in the French resistance.
The porters also deserve commendation, they recommended a delightful restaurant for us and I never once had to open a door (something that can be quite rare in British hotels). They also were concerned that we shouldn't be lumbered with having to pay too much for parking and found us a spot where we could leave our car. Most kind.
Our marble bathroom was well stocked with luxurious Floris toiletries (of which I am now a fan) and it was a pleasure to relax in the very deep bath whilst listening to the selection of CDs left for us to play on the Bose music centre.
To conclude....Don't Go!! I want it all to myself.

Top Local Tips for London
Don't Worry about transportation here You can walk everywhere from the Stafford - Picadilly, National Gallery, Trafalgar Square, Park Lane, Buckingham Palace and much more. And yet the hotel is in a gorgeous little cul de sac that is pin-drop quiet. You couldn't ask for more.
Family TIme in St. James Park If you need to "kill some time" with the kids before (or after) seeing the Change the Guards ceremony, St. James Park is wonderful. There are lovely spots to feed the ducks, and there's a small playground (and nearby snack stand and restroom). It's also lovely to sit on the park benches to daydream, read, relax!!
trip from heathrow best option is to get the train from heathrow to Paddington and then a taxi - quicker and cheaper!
