The Stafford Hotel

16 - 18 St. James's Place, London SW1A 1NJ, England
6 reviews

The Stafford Hotel is one of our favorites as well as our correspondent's. With a charming courtyard lined with rooms in converted stables (two-part doors intact) and an old wine cellar filled with great vintages and some WW1 artifacts, and attentive, but not obsequious service, the Stafford is a hotel worth returning to again and again.

    Another of London's beautiful Royal parks. Nice for a stroll if you're hitting up some of Westminster's touristy spots.

    Fortnum's is amazing! From the window displays outside we are drawn into the store.. once in the store it is luxury and quality all the day. Colours and smells are spellbinding. I walk past the store most days and marvel at the displays. Sometimes stopping in to meet a friend for a cup of tea.

    I attended an Anish Kapoor exhibit here in 2010 that was mind blowing. The exhibit was based around huge volumes of wax. In one room, there were canons that shot the crimson colored wax against a wall, and it then fell onto a huge pile. In another room there was huge blocks of wax on conveyor belts. This isn't saying ...

    My lovely host for the day and I ended our tour de London in Covent Garden. We passed by this adorable bakery/restaurant and had to come back for tea after our walk. I am a regular drinker of tea these days and love to have it at night with a pastry. The macaroons at Laduree are fantastic. SOOO delicious. We ...

    A great place to stroll around and take some time. The place is oozing with history. It's definitely worth a stroll down from trafalgar!

    this hotel is very high end. Classy and sophisticated. The reason i go there.... the bar, especially their champagne selection. Over a weekend expect the bar to be packed full. Dress code is pretty much dress to impress. Keep in mind the door men at most bars in London, or nicer bars, will not let you in if you are ...

    Hot. Great music. But stuffy. Intimate. On a small side street in Mayfair. Very artsy and attractive crowd.

    A big London art gallery, it's literally a big Cube. I felt very art-y visiting it, and the work we saw was interesting: thousands of tiny photographs of the same mountain landscape in different weather and light, almost like latter day Monet haystacks. Unless you are a visual artist or very into the scene, maybe it's not worth a special ...

    Mahiki Club

    I'm not much for clubs or bars, but I did really like Mahiki when I went with a group of friends. They have a really great selection of interesting cocktails that were really delicious and often times very fun to drink (one comes in a pirate leg which my mates rather enjoyed). It's a bit on the pricy side, as ...

    For a unique concentration of luxury shopping and historic charm, Burlington Arcade is a must. This passage unites Piccadilly and Bond Street, and glitters with diamonds in handcrafted and vintage settings, contrasted with the scent of Penhaligon's perfume and colors of Laduree macarons.

    The epicenter of cutting-edge designer fashion in London, Dover Street Market was created by Rei Kawakubo of the Comme des Garcons empire. The "Market" is actually a five-floor department store with beautiful temporary installations and small, well-curated rails for each designer. The most interesting pieces are the ones by Japanese designers little known in Europe such as Sacai. Also one ...

    Big Ben

    Iconic London, and close to so many other points of interest. The tower itself was more elaborate than I expected, and standing beneath it when it chimed the hour was a very cool experience.

    Another if London's most famous squares, Trafalgar was high on my list of things to visit. Unfortunately, there was construction and preparation for a massive concert going on while I was in town, so most of what I got to see was partially covered or obscured. The area is nice, however!

    Spectacular to see the changing of the guard. We were there on Saturday and got to see the horse guard and band as well. It was fabulous, but be prepared to stand for a long time and the. Crowds are unbelievable. Well worth it though.

    Tower of London

    0.73 mi from The Stafford Hotel
    245 reviews

    Everyone who goes wants to see the Crown Jewels which is where lines can be excruciatingly long (I've heard up to 2+ hr waits during the peak of summer). The cafe inside the tower isn't bad -- definitely eat there instead of the less than mediocre options near the entrance.

    It really is quite majestic. Also, take the open-top bus tour (from any of the tour stands). You can get on and off again on the same ticket. That way if you get to a location you want to check out more, you just hop off, wander a bit, and catch on the next tour bus. Also, if you take ...

    Beautiful Gothic Church, that is the seat of the Anglican Church. It is also where most of the British kings and queens were crowned, and buried. Check out the tombs of the royalty as well as several famous Englishmen like Charles Darwin and Sir Isaac Newton. Try to make it for an organ concert if you can, the Abbey's great ...

    Let's start out with the free admission then move on to the fact that the gallery contains many of the most famous portraits of notable Britons--the pictures you see in textbooks and on Wikipedia. The National Portrait Gallery is a great way to kill a lazy afternoon. Located just off Trafalgar Square in the heart of downtown London, this museum ...
