Very Good8.0
Excellent, but wish I knew it was necessary to reserve a place in the bars in the evening before dinner.

Perfect little secret tucked away in London
Staff are the best I have come across in a hotel. Adequate room size but very comfy. Situated in a wonderful area.

The Stafford London, London
Understated but elegant
The staff at this hotel are the combined best of any hotel I’ve encountered. Suitably hidden, but in a prime location. Rooms are not huge buy quietly comfortable with quality beds and linen. One of the go to best in London if you prefer discreet elegance in the middle of happening Mayfair/Soho.

Like this hotel for Central London
Business and pleasure trip. Home base for several activities and NFL this year. Appreciate the attentive staff. Enjoyed the quiet, comfortable room. Nice amenities. American Bar staff were working extra hard with food/drink demands. Look forward to a return trip!
