Living area of the Royal Suite at The Cadogan

As London’s most beautiful neighbourhood, Chelsea is naturally home to some of the world’s best landmark hotels; bastions of elegant luxury, unmatched in their sophistication and commitment to the highest levels of hospitality. 

So, if you’re looking to escape in ultimate style and opulence, these are the crème de la crème of hotel suites in Chelsea, from old-world glamour to rooms that are designed for intoxicating romance…

The Cadogan, A Belmond Hotel - The Royal Suite

Size: 

104 square metres

SUITE SOMETHINGS:

The grand hotel’s grandest suite is a sumptuous reflection of The Cadogan’s illustrious past: marked 118, it is the room where Oscar Wilde was famously arrested. 

‘Netflix and chill’ will take on a whole new meaning in the oversized deep-soak bath with integrated television. Play your favourite music through the Bang & Olufsen Bluetooth speakers in the sitting room, which comes with a working fireplace for cosy fire-side moments, while the dining room can seat eight, should you wish to entertain during your stay. 

There’s daily breakfast, which you can have in your room, transfers are included, and so is the laundry service.

SUITE DREAMS:

A king-sized bed, made with the highest quality Egyptian cotton linen and a vast selection of pillow options.

SUITE TOOTH:

The mini bar is stocked with complimentary British treats, a curated bar and a Nespresso coffee machine. 

Be sure to try the spectacular new afternoon tea offering from renowned pâtissier Benoit Blin, and the beef tartare at The LaLee, theatrically served table-side.

PAMPERING:

The opulent, marble-clad bathroom has heated floors and towel rails, and is stocked with Bamford Spa products. And skin specialist-to-the-stars Teresa Tarmey offers her signature facials within a serene treatment room.

From your furnished balcony (a rather nice spot for breakfast), there are views over Cadogan Place Gardens and the charming chimneys of the Chelsea skyline.

EXTRA SUITE:

There is a butler at your service so you won’t have to lift a finger, should you not wish to. And, staffed by no less than three winners of the illustrious Les Clefs d’Or London Concierge of the Year, the hotel is amply prepared to fulfil all of your wildest requests and whims.

Plus, you will have access to Cadogan Place Gardens, a private gated garden that is usually reserved for residents.

PRICE:

Royal Suite from £5,500/night

When The Carlton Tower first opened in 1961, it was the tallest hotel in London, with 18 floors. Due to historical restrictions on the height of buildings in the city, it is still relatively rare to find a hotel with rooms high enough to offer the type of sweeping vistas over the trees of Cadogan Place Gardens to the London skyline beyond afforded by the Royal Suite’s balcony and windows.

EXTRA SUITE:

You will be welcomed to your suite by a Scrabble board set with an edible welcome message that’s just for you, as well as personalised slippers, an array of sweet baked treats and a seasonal fruit selection to balance the indulgence.
