Belmond Cadogan to reopen in 2018
Forbes reports on the most anticipated hotel openings of 2018 – with the Belmond Cadogan Hotel as their only UK inclusion.
Built in 1887 in the Queen Anne style, The Cadogan Hotel has played an integral role in local social history. It is currently under significant refurbishment and restoration, due to reopen under the management of Belmond towards the end of 2018. The design project draws inspiration from the beautiful architectural character of the building and surrounding neighbourhood as well as the hotel’s rich heritage, creating a stylish retreat and meeting place for both international visitors and the local community. It will also offer a new gourmet dining experience opening out onto Sloane Street, with views of Cadogan Place Gardens, and taking advantage of its superb location at the heart of one of London’s most vibrant retail areas.
Hugh Seaborn, Chief Executive of Cadogan comments “The Cadogan Hotel has a colourful history – once home to Lillie Langtry where she courted the future King of England and also the location of Oscar Wilde’s infamous arrest – and a wonderful future. With its depth of experience overseeing the sensitive renovation of historic buildings and track record in luxury hospitality, Belmond is the perfect partner for us to preserve The Cadogan Hotel’s unique heritage, while evolving it into a retreat for today’s luxury traveller. It fits perfectly with Sloane Street’s international cachet and our vision and strategy for ensuring it becomes the most exclusive and luxurious shopping street in the world .”
The Belmond collection of hotels, trains and river cruisers are known to be found in some of the globe’s most remarkable locations and the soon-to-be Belmond Cadogan Hotel will be no exception. Belmond owns and operates four other businesses within Great Britain: the Belmond British Pullman, Belmond Northern Belle and Belmond Royal Scotsman luxury rail experiences, as well as Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons, a 32-key hotel and two-Michelin star restaurant in Oxfordshire.
