Piccadilly: a well-dressed charmer at the heart of Westminster. As the home of the original dandy, it now effortlessly blends tradition with a cool, cutting edge. Stroll the elegant, gas lit streets to the White Cube in Mason's Yard. Hail a black cab to Dover Street Market (just round the corner). Enjoy a picnic on the grass of St James' Park.
Welcome to a new London generation of upmarket boutiques, glossy front doors and eccentric adventures beyond.
Stop. Put the frenetic pace of the city on hold. Tucked away in a calm nook of Piccadilly, The Stafford London by Kempinski gives you a glimpse into life as it could be. Here the best of tradition is given a remix with modern comforts. Frank and his concierge team are always on hand to sort out your every whim.
Drop your shopping bags, sink into a comfy chair and let the staff mix you a drink before heading to your Mews Suite. There you'll find an array of Molton Brown products; from Paradisiac Pink Pepperpod Bath & Shower, to Healthy Ziao Jao Hairwash; to help enliven your hair and body and soothe your mood.
