Heaven in London -
My husband and I stayed at the Stafford between Christmas and New Years 2018 and it was a perfect vacation. Due to an overnight flight, we arrived insanely early, but we were made very comfortable in the lounge while they prepared our room for an early check-in. We were upgraded to a large and beautiful suite complete with a Christmas tree and complimentary wine! Every member of the hotel, bar and restaurant staff treated us warmly and even remembered our names and the smallest preferences (like water with every cocktail). We loved the American Bar and the heated courtyard where my husband could enjoy a cigar each evening. Breakfast at the Game Bird was included in our package and it was exceptional – fresh fruit, cheeses, pastries and pretty much anything you requested cooked to order. Dinners in the Game Bird were so delicious (and expertly served) that we ate there all but one evening. Don’t leave without trying the Chicken Kiev! The wine list is amazing, and we particularly enjoyed our private tour of the Stafford’s historic wine cellar. And the bedding - I never wanted get up – Egyptian Cotton?! I can’t say enough about the Stafford. Perfect location, knowledgeable, warm and gracious staff, beautiful rooms with every amenity and exceptional food. It’s a perfect oasis in London. We can’t wait to return.
