A British Treasure
Posted 28-Mar-2017 on Hotels
This hotel is 5 stars in every possible way. Location wise, you cannot find a better hotel. Tucked away in St. James it is on a very quiet street (we had some of the best night's sleeps here) but literally only a stone's throw from the busy Piccadilly Street, Pall Mall and Green Park. Ask about the (not so) secret passageway from the front of the hotel to Green Park (from there it's only a 5 minute walk to Buckingham Palace and only 2 minutes to Green Park station which is convenient if you travelled to London via Heathrow Airport). As for the room, we selected a deluxe king room and were so glad we did. The room itself was very spacious as was the bathroom (nice amenities included) and vanity areas. One quick word about the water pressure - fabulous! After a long day touring, it's always nice to come back to a hot shower with sufficient water pressure! Our room also had two closets and a coffee/tea bar. The hotel personnel were very friendly and always greeted you with a smile. If all of that weren't enough, a slice of chocolate cake was delivered to our room to help celebrate my birthday! And I'm a huge fan of any establishment that promotes "going green" (you could elect to have your sheets changed when you wanted vs every day). If you have time, ask to tour the 300 year old wine cellar. The Stafford London is truly a magnificent hotel. You cannot beat the location; easily accessible to many of London's sites, shops and restaurants.
