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.

Sales & Marketing: Technology Rules

It is impossible for any hotel to develop an effective sales and marketing plan that doesn't include a wide-ranging digital strategy. Online platforms have impacted virtually every aspect of their business, due to major changes in how Internet users research, plan, and book their hotel visits. As a result, a successful plan includes generating traffic through the use of a hotel website, social media, email and a myriad of other digital marketing technologies. One such strategy uses data collection and automation technology to create personalized content to individual customers. The goal of personalization marketing is to engage potential customers by communicating with them as individuals - to establish a more personal relationship - as a way of encouraging them to visit a property. Video marketing is also extremely important. Showing someone authentic video from a specific location is immersive and engaging, and video is still the preferred way for customers to interact with a hotel brand. Voice and Visual Search are increasingly in demand, as consumers are moving away from typing queries into a search engine. Instead, they can simply speak their request into their phone, and find and book a hotel without ever typing a word. Similarly, other platforms allow consumers to search visually for almost any image, and find out pricing information, shopping comparisons and how-to-buy - all from the app. The adoption of Artificial Intelligence is also becoming popular. The ability of chatbots to answer simple questions or fulfill requests 24/7 is undeniably appealing. In addition, A.I. seems best positioned to qualify leads that can be later nurtured and closed by a human sales expert - all at a fraction of the cost of a traditional support team. The June Hotel Business Review will examine how some sales and marketing professionals are integrating these innovative technologies into their operations.
