Kempinski Hotels and Stafford London terminate management agreement
The Stafford London Splits with Kempinski, Moves on to Preferred Hotels
It’s time for something new at The Stafford London: after a four-year relationship with Kempinski Hotels, the hotel is calling it quits and standing on its own legs as an independent property.
The Stafford isn’t going at it completely alone; by September 10 it will join Preferred Hotels & Resorts. The addition of The Stafford will take the total number of Preferred hotels in London to nine; existing properties include the ME London as well as the upcoming Beaumont Hotel.
A Classic King Room at The Stafford runs at just over £400 ($688) a night early September.
that's a lot of Preferred hotels in London alone !
I believe that Preferred is actually faster growing than LHW does around the world, there's a certain momentum for Preferred and this includes London.
that's good, cos LHW hotels are usual out of my price-range considerations..
Hotel members at the main brand Preferred Hotels and Resorts / Preferred Boutique have usually / nearly the same overnight rates as LHW, [ while Summit Hotels & Resorts, Sterling Design Hotels, which also belongs to Preferred usually offers more affordable options ] but LHW offers their Leaders Club which costs 150 USD/Year and incl. breakfast, internet, possible upgrade, early check in / late check out, plus after 5 stays / 1 night free. Preferred on the other side doesn't offer such "paid" for benefits, instead they offer points for stays which might be used for overnight charges or any other charge at a member hotel.
