r />The Cadogan Hotel is a luxury boutique hotel located between London's Knightsbridge area and Sloane Square. The Cadogan Hotel is a short stroll from Buckingham Palace, Green Park and the Natural History Museum as well as local restaurants.
It doesn’t get much more picture-book English, much more posh turn-of-the-century London, than this: the Cadogan Hotel, on Sloane Square in Knightsbridge, just around the corner from Harrod’s, down the road from Harvey Nicks, and a (very muscular) stone’s throw from Hyde Park. This is where Oscar Wilde was arrested for indecency, and though it was the beginning of a bit of a bad patch for him, it doesn’t have to be for you — you can still book his old room, number 118, and see how things turn out.
These days it’s owned by the Spain-based Franklyn group, but under their tenure it certainly hasn’t gone Continental. There’ve been some pretty extensive renovations, and rather an influx of Louis-the-something armchairs, but the effect is more a thorough spit-and-polish than a complete re-imagining.
Rooms hang on to their Edwardian charm in varying degrees, but all have been modernized, outfitted with all today’s luxury must-haves, from LCD televisions to top-shelf bathroom amenities. Downstairs there’s Langtry’s, the fine-dining restaurant, named for a former Cadogan resident and mistress to Edward VII, as well as a splendid afternoon tea in the old drawing room.
