One of those small hotels that guests discover and keep to themselves.
Having undergone a £6 million renovation, this hotel's first-floor reception, lounges, guest rooms and restaurant emerged looking sleeker and sexier than ever. This is an elegant spot by Green Park, hidden away like Duke's behind St. James’s and spread out among three separate buildings. First-rate service, led by cream-of-the-crop management, is a key factor in maintaining the incredibly high number of returning guests. It’s all very gracious here, with individually furnished rooms in keeping with the traditional style of a refined country house. Some rooms are in the Carriage House, built in the 1700s as stables for the aristocracy and looking out onto a small courtyard full of hanging flower baskets and tubs. The rooms --- many beamed and all different in shape and size --- do make one feel more in the country than the heart of the capital. The Stafford also houses one of the largest wine cellars in London; if you get a chance, ask for a tour. Part of the renovation included the launch of The Lyttelton restaurant, which offers seasonal British cuisine for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The American Bar is a convenient, convivial luncheon spot or pre-theater rendezvous point. Crammed with ties, caps and badges, its quirky décor is a treat.
