As the festive season approaches, there are few cities in the world that can beat London when it comes to Christmas attractions. Shopping at Harrods, ice skating at Somerset House, sparkling lights running the length of Bond Street and the spectacular Christmas market in Winter Wonderland are among the highlights.  There is no better time to visit Britain’s capital city.

The rooms at The Stafford London have luxurious decor

For those wanting to plan a winter break, we recommend tucking yourself away in the luxurious Stafford London. This five star hotel boasts an excellent location and it is just a stone’s throw away from Green Park. The chic areas of Mayfair and St. James are also right on the doorstep. Buckingham Palace is just a short walk away from the hotel and it is located close to many of London’s main winter activities.

The Stafford London is certainly one of the finest luxury hotels in the city. It is also incredibly discreet and the suite accommodation that adjoins the main building provides guests with an extra level of privacy.

The Suites are very spacious

The roaring fires are a welcoming feature in the The Lyttelton Lounge and here you can enjoy a fabulous afternoon tea. Included on the sandwich menu are British favourites such as Roast Beef and Smoked Salmon. Warm scones with clotted cream and jam follow, before you can indulge in a scrumptious selection of puddings. Strawberry tart, Battenberg cake and Chocolate éclairs are just some of the sweet delights presented.

The restaurant also provides an excellent menu for lunch and dinner. It will benefit from a planned revamp that will allow this area to welcome 2017 with a refreshed mood and there are big plans in store.

If you are staying more than one night at The Stafford London and want to venture into town for dinner and to explore the local area, we recommend trying some of the famous restaurants in the West End. Sake no Hana is only a few steps away and this provides delicious Japanese food. Meanwhile, Quaglino’s is close to the hotel as well as Avenue, which is a New York style of brasserie.

Afternoon Tea at The Stafford London is served by the fire

The Stafford London has a highly popular drinking hole that is known as the American Bar. This is frequented by those who work in the local area as well as guests of the hotel. Baseball caps hang from the ceiling and an America theme runs throughout with celebrity photographs and various memorabilia adorning the walls. It is not just for evening entertainment and this is a great place to enjoy a morning coffee, but come darkness, the atmosphere is fantastic.

The American Bar boasts a fabulous cocktail list and it is a place ‘to be seen’ for pre-dinner drinks. The outdoor terrace area that is attached to The American Bar is simply stunning and the cobbled streets give it a traditional feel. In the summer months, this is the perfect place to unwind on a warm evening and the outdoor heaters keep the space fully functional throughout the seasons.

Private Dining at The Stafford London

The rooms and suites at The Stafford London are extremely comfortable and spacious, with luxurious furnishings throughout. The Mews Suites are particularly impressive and offer a peaceful place to stay right in the heart of London. They mix classic décor with contemporary design and the bathrooms are very roomy. A discreet separate entrance makes this part of the hotel very appealing for celebrity guests.

While there is much to do in London during December and you can spend hours exploring different parts of town, The Stafford also has its own Christmas experiences to help keep you entertained. If you prefer to simply indulge in the luxury of the hotel during your stay, then there is plenty to keep you occupied. This means that you don’t have to venture too far away during the chilly days in order to get a sense of the holiday season.

The Penthouse Suite at The Stafford London

Christmas Eve is an especially magical time and guests are invited to attend a splendid dinner in the 380 year old Wine Cellar. Christmas carols, mulled win and a magnificent four course feast will be served. You can also enjoy a stroll through the Royal Park’s to celebrate Midnight Mass at The Guard’s Chapel.

The Stafford London will be welcoming guests throughout the Christmas period and the property will also be hosting a number of special events. New Year’s Eve will be marked with a four course meal and champagne reception. There are few places where you will be able to welcome 2017 in such style.

Although The Stafford London is perfect for a winter getaway, a stay at this luxurious hotel would also be a real treat in the spring or summer months. So, if you don’t get the chance to visit over the festive period and make the most of the joyous December weeks in London, perhaps a trip to this sophisticated hotel would be a perfect present for under the Christmas tree.
