Kempinksi Adopts The Stafford Hotel, Let's Hope It Keeps The Standard Up
Is this a sad day for independent hotels, or a good one for the future of London accommodation? The Stafford Hotel on the Strand has just joined the Kempinksi brand, becoming The Stafford London by Kempinkski.
Kempinski haven’t had a base in London since 2008, so it’s good news for them. And it should be good news for the Stafford, too – although we’ve never stayed in a Kempinski, we’ve rarely heard anything but good stuff about them.
Kempinksi say they’re going to renovated all public areas, corridors and 24 of the rooms by the end of 2011. Let’s hope they keep the rave TripAdvisor reviews going. Seems like they’re starting form a pretty high point.
