Priority Early Check-in
The Stafford’s buildings once belonged to lords, so you can expect accommodations befitting the British aristocracy. Its 107 rooms and suites are in three areas: the Mews, the Carriage House, and the Main House. The Main House mixes grand Victorian style with modern comfort, while the Carriage House offers a countryside feel in the heart of London.
All rooms and suites have individual color schemes with patterned wallpapers, four-poster beds, and bespoke furniture. Suites offer king- or queen-sized beds, spacious layouts, marble bathrooms, and cozy seating areas. Channeling private residences, the Mews suites are in the courtyard of the Main House, offering complete quiet and privacy amid the hustle and bustle of London. In the Penthouse suite, the quaint sitting room and fireplace create an extra-cozy experience, and from the terrace, you look out over St James Park and Mayfair’s rooftops.
The hotel’s dedicated concierge team can assist with your stay and explorations of London, whether that is booking tickets to a West End show, arranging an unforgettable dining experience, or planning smooth onward travel.
Chef Ben Tish heads up the Stafford’s two restaurants with a focus on European flavors, local suppliers, and farm-fresh ingredients. Sample British classics in the stylish art-filled atmosphere of The Game Bird, or stop by The American Bar for a cocktail experience you’ll never forget.
