PROPERTY FEATURES

The Premises 

Occupying a quintet of townhouses on a leafy Chelsea square, 11 Cadogan Gardens has the body of an aristocrat and the spirit of a bon viveur. Built in the 19th century by Lord Chelsea, the buildings are a study in redbrick grandeur, with whitewashed arches and decorative glasswork on the outside, and a fine-tuned blend of period detail and modern design within. Regal showstoppers like the Sloane Suite deliver old-world splendour in spades, but the hotel’s top-to-tail refit has made it equally fit for more modern-minded guests – not least Han’s Bar & Grill, a mod-British restaurant finished with sculptural lamps and bottle-green banquettes. A former members’ club and haunt of the fashionable upper classes, the hotel has also long been a lady of leisure – champagne-tinged teas are held in the drawing room each afternoon, and the Chelsea Bar, the hotel’s seductive cocktail den, stays open late into the night.

ALSO

There are steps at the entrance and no adapted rooms, making the hotel unsuitable for wheelchair users.
The hotel has several rooms that are perfect for private dinners and get togethers, the most dramatic of which is the Mirror Room, a miniature hall of mirrors clad almost entirely in polished glass. The floor, on the other hand, is laid with gleaming checkerboard tiles, creating a kaleidoscopic effect in the ceiling. Ask the staff to place a bouquet of roses on the table to complete the Through the Looking Glass effect.

Rooms 

If it’s indulgence you’re after, the sumptuous Sloane Suite will deliver it in gilt-edged spades. Furnished with fine antiques and decorated in a regal trio of gold, cream and black, this two-room suite has the best views of leafy Cadogan Gardens, on show in grand proportions thanks to a vast bay window in the living room. The bedroom is bathed in light thanks to a second set of floor-to-ceiling windows, and has an ornate four-poster bed with a tasselled canopy.

Food & Drink 

Unforgettable Features 

The most modern space in the hotel, Han’s Bar & Grill marks a departure from the heritage look, dressed with exposed brick, green leather banquettes and square, marble-topped tables. There are several different rooms, each with their own distinct style, including an elegant wine room (where some of the hotel’s 180-bottle collection is stored), and a light-flooded conservatory, in which potted greenery dangles from the glass roof. Chef Adam England has devised an all-day menu that champions the best British produce of the season, including hearty grill items like monkfish and English sirloin.

Liquid Bliss 

Laced with gold paint, dark woods and cognac leather, the Chelsea Bar is the hotel’s louche yet elegant drinking den. Thick curtains emblazoned with oak leaves can be drawn over the mullioned windows, and the barmen will pour until the last guest leaves. Cocktails play a feature role, but there’s also an extensive wine list for guests with grape expectations. There’s a second bar in Han’s, a more modern, industrial-style affair with exposed ducting and jet-black lamps.

Experience the Extraordinary 

A longtime home-from-home for aristocrats and bon vivants, 11 Cadogan Gardens is no stranger to lives of leisure. In truly British style, the afternoon tea is one of the day’s highlights, with specialty teas and champagne doing the rounds in the cosy refinement of the drawing room (or Han’s bar, if bottle-green leather and milky marble are more your cup of tea). In the summer, the hotel’s walled terrace becomes the perfect Pimm’s garden, particularly during Wimbledon, which is shown on a big screen. After dark, the Chelsea Bar becomes the hotel’s social heart, where cocktails are served till late in a dusky room with cognac-leather armchairs and dark-wood parquet. Opposite the hotel are the famous Cadogan Gardens, which you can access during your stay – the lawn makes a fine spot to laze with a book on a summer’s day. But unlike most hotels, what’s out back is equally enticing. After a consultation with local residents, the mews that line Pavilion Road were refurbished and occupied by a host of handpicked businesses, including a butcher, artisanal bakery, barbershop, cheese monger and wine merchant, each housed in a redbrick mews house with a steep gabled roof. The local area is rich in independent boutiques selling everything from exotic flowers to handmade hats, but for a food-focused experience, try the Farmers’ Market just off the King’s Road, where you can sample half a dozen Maldon oysters before browsing the surrounding shops. Occupying the Grade II-listed Duke Of York’s Headquarters, the Saatchi Gallery is famous for its star-studded and oft provocative exhibitions of contemporary art. If you’re looking to escape the crowds for an hour, take refuge in the Chelsea Physic Garden, which was established in 1673 as a place to grow medicinal plants.

Transportation 

The hotel is across the road from Cadogan Gardens, a leafy park square in the heart of Chelsea.

Planes 

Touch down at London Heathrow for the quickest routes into the city. The Heathrow Express will whisk you to Paddington in 15 minutes; a car or taxi will take about 45 minutes if the traffic plays nicely. The hotel can arrange private transfers for £95 each way (but prices can be cheaper when booked well in advance).

Trains 

All of London’s major stations are within easy reach. The most convenient is Victoria, where you’ll be able to hop straight onto the District or Circle line, riding one stop to Sloane Square, a short stroll from the hotel.

Automobiles 

You won’t need a car if you’re staying at 11 Cadogan Gardens. With Sloane Square so nearby, the Tube is the fastest way to get around, and taxis are plentiful after dark. If you do decide to bring a car, the hotel has valet parking.
