    The luxury hotel, which is ideally located in the heart of London, will open its decadent doors in February 2019… 

    With luxury brands and high-end retailers of Knightsbridge just off the main entrance and the artistic heart of Chelsea just off the side entrance, the 54-key Belmond Cadogan Hotel, which will open in February 2019, is ideally located in the heart of London in between the two fashionable districts, somewhat capturing the best of both worlds.

    Belmond, with architecture leadership by Blair Associates, have carefully preserved the London legacy of the property by sensitively restoring five 1800s Queen Anne-Style buildings that are unique to both aptly leafy neighborhoods.

    What is described on its website as being ‘truly a welcome home’, the hotel has been renovated to balance – like its location – a distinct feeling of comfort and style. Inside the property, the interior design will reflect modern British style with a distinctive contemporary feel. Much of the inspiration draws inspiration from the hotel’s original features. Steeped in colourful history, the hotel’s many walls tell many fascinating tales from Oscar Wilde to Lillie Langtry, both of whom were regular residents at the hotel. The restaurant and bar are in the hotel have been designed by Russell Sage Studio, while the guestrooms and suites have been carefully imagined and created by GA Design International. The firm’s global executive design director (London), Terry Mcginnty, has been shortlisted for The Brit List 2018 for his work on previous iconic hotels as well as the work his team are completing for Belmond Cadogan Hotel.

    Considering art is a major feature of this month, more than 400 pieces of original artwork will be found throughout the hotel, from more than 20 artists, many of whom are UK-based.

    Guests checking in will have access to the private Cadogan Place gardens (one of Chelsea’s largest garden squares and once site of the 18thcentury London Botanic Gardens) and for complete privacy, a residential entrance is accessible via Pony Street.
