Why Stay At The Stafford London
This historic London property in St. James's offers easy access to city landmarks, including Buckingham Palace.
Tucked away on one of the gas-lit streets of the St. James's district, this historic hotel is walking distance to London landmarks, including Green Park and Buckingham Palace. Each of the three buildings offers unique charms: The Victorian-style Main House was recently renovated, while rooms in the Carriage House are especially cozy, with wood beams that date to the 19th century, when the property was the residence of Lord and Lady Lyttelton (a former governess to the Royal Family). The Mews—a 2007 addition—are set up more like modern apartments. All buildings share the Lyttleton Restaurant, where travelers order rustic British fare (Elwy Valley lamb chops; smoked haddock) or take afternoon tea by the fireplace.
The Stafford's master sommelier, Gino Nardella, leads wine tastings that include pours from some of the cellar's best bottles, including a 1961 Château Lafite Rothschild (tastings from $65).
Aside from the fitness room on site, guests get complimentary access to nearby Third Space, one of London's best fitness centers and spas.
Arrive at London Heathrow International Airport (LHR) which is approximately 18 miles from the hotel. Anticipate between 35 and 60 minutes of travel time depending on traffic.16-18 Saint James's Place, London, United Kingdom

Why We Love London
London's millennial resurgence has resulted from a blend of clear-eyed preservation, savvy reinvention, and bold innovation. Perhaps that's because behind all the novelty, the London that always was endures, unperturbed by these curious new arrivals, or just slightly bemused.
Where to Eat: Quo Vadis, the clubby Soho landmark, has stepped up tenfold since chef Jeremy Lee took over last year. Lee's smoked-eel sandwich, served on grilled sourdough bread with pickled onions and creamy horseradish, is fantastic.
26-29 Dean St., Soho.
Dinner for two $60.
Best Day Trip: Drive to Bath, roughly 100 miles west of London, to see the city's namesake abbey, a medieval church dating to 1499. If weather permits, stop at the Roman Baths Museum for a dip in Britain's only natural hot springs.
