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 Design: Home Away From Home

With the rise of the sharing economy and the peer-to-peer marketplace for lodging options, hoteliers are re-thinking the look, feel and appeal of their locations. There is an emphasis on re-creating a feeling of homeyness - a comfortable, cozy and inviting space that feels like home. 'This is accomplished through the careful selection of furniture design, paint colors, lighting design, artwork, bathroom fixtures and textile accessories. In addition, some hotels are providing their guests with upscale amenities, such as a book and movie library, home-style kitchenettes, a coffee machine with locally-sourced beans and tea, or even a batch of fresh-baked cookies. Similarly, there is a growing design trend based on the concept of place-making. Travelers are searching for experiences that are unique and authentic to the locale in which they find themselves, and so hotel designers are integrating a sense of place into their work. This is partially achieved by incorporating traditional artisanal crafts and other local artwork into hotel rooms and communal spaces. Another design trend includes the creation of full-service, co-working environments within the hotel. Guests don't like to stay alone in their room when they need to work, so now they can go downstairs to the lobby-or up to the roof-to work among others. These areas encourage guests - and non-guests alike - to stay as long as they like and to partake of hotel amenities. Finally, recognizing the importance of the Wellness Movement, some designers are exploring how room design can increase the likelihood of deep and restorative sleep. Creating dark and quiet spaces, blocking excessive light, providing guests with a selection of different kinds of pillows, and the ability to control room temperature, are a few of the best practices in this area. These are some of the architecture and design topics that will be covered in the November issue of the Hotel Business Review.
