11 Cadogan Gardens Becomes Only Relais & Châteaux Hotel in London

Luxury Boutique Hotel Joins Prestigious Hospitality Association Amongst the World's Best Hotels and Restaurants

USA, New York , New York. November 21, 2019

As Relais & Châteaux announces its newest members around the world, 11 Cadogan Gardens is honourably welcomed as the association's only London hotel. Following in the steps of its sister properties Chewton Glen, the first Relais & Châteaux hotel in the UK, and Cliveden House, 11 Cadogan Gardens will be the third member in the Iconic Luxury Hotels group to join the prestigious association.

Relais & Châteaux members embody exceptional hospitality through service, cuisine and amenities, while offering travellers a sense of place rich in culture and heritage. It was the award-winning Chewton Glen that set the standard of excellence for Relais & Châteaux in the United Kingdom, as the first-ever British hotel to join the association back in 1971. Championing its rich heritage and exceptional service, 11 Cadogan Gardens has followed in Chewton Glen's footsteps, to become one of the finest hotels in the world. Originally built by Lord Chelsea in the late 19th century as part of the prestigious Cadogan Estate, 11 Cadogan Gardens today stands as one of London's premier boutique hotels, with 56 luxury guestrooms and a brand-new restaurant, Hans' Bar & Grill, that opens onto the artisanal Pavilion Road. Located in the heart of Chelsea, just off Sloane Square, the property is rooted in heritage and has become a staple destination for the local community.

"We are proud that 11 Cadogan Gardens has been welcomed into the Relais & Châteaux family and has become the association's only London hotel," says Andrew Stembridge, Executive Director of Iconic Luxury Hotels. "A quintessential British building, the property is exquisitely designed and offers impeccable service - both pillars that stay true to the ethos of Relais & Châteaux. It's amazing to see the hotel now standing amongst the world's finest hotels and restaurants."

Philippe Gombert, President of Relais & Châteaux said: "We are very happy to count 11 Cadogan Gardens as a member of our family. This is a perfect example of what Relais & Châteaux is: properties anchored in their region, ambassadors of their heritage, but also passionate about their craft. The hotel is perfectly located and will offer a delicious immersion into London for our guests."

Relais & Châteaux is a global fellowship of individually owned and operated luxury hotels and restaurants, with 580 members in 60+ countries around the world. Established in 1954, the association's members share a unified passion for exceptional hospitality and a desire to protect their heritage.

Hotel Law: Protecting Guest Privacy

Every business is obligated to protect their customers from identity theft but unfortunately, data breaches have become all too common. In an effort to protect a guest's right to privacy and to safeguard their personal data, the European Union passed a General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) that could hold hotels legally liable for any breaches that expose a customer's sensitive personal information. Though the GDPR only pertains to EU citizens' data, any international business that mishandles their data can be legally responsible. Another legal issue of concern is the fight involving hotel "resort fees." Several states attorney generals have recently filed suit against two major hotel chains in an effort to litigate this practice. Their suit alleges that these companies are "engaged in deceptive and misleading pricing practices and their failure to disclose fees is in violation of consumer protection laws." The suit seeks to force the hotel chains to advertise the true price of their hotel rooms. There are several other legal issues that the industry is being forced to address. Sexual harassment prevention in the workplace is still top of mind for hotel employers-particularly in New York and California, which now statutorily require harassment training. Hotels and motels in California will also soon be required to train all their employees on human trafficking awareness. Immigration issues are also of major concern to hotel employers, especially in the midst of a severe labor shortage. The government is issuing fewer H2B visas for low-skilled workers, as well as J-1 visas for temporary workers. Though there is little hope for any comprehensive immigration reform, hotel lobbying groups are actively seeking legal remedies to alleviate this problem. These are just a few of the critical issues that the December issue of the Hotel Business Review will examine in the area of hotel law.
