11 Cadogan Gardens is a five-star hotel located on Cadogan Gardens, Chelsea, London, England. The property was initially built by the Cadogan family in the 19th century and originally consisted of four separate Victorian town houses. The hotel is now a part of Iconic Luxury Hotels, which is owned by London & Regional Properties.

History[edit]

The building that is currently 11 Cadogan Gardens was built by the Cadogan family in the late 19th century. The building was initially made up of four separate Victorian townhouses that have since been converted into one.

After the initial conversion the hotel became a common destination for travelling Victorian aristocrats and politicians. During this period, the area surrounding 11 Cadogan Gardens was a rather bohemian quarter which attracted a number of notable people of that era, including radicals, artists and poets. [1]

On 5 April 2010, 11 Cadogan Gardens was partly damaged by a fire. Two storeys were damaged, and the roof was completely destroyed.[2]

11 Cadogan Gardens opened as a hotel in 2012 [3], after previously being a members only club, when Cadogan Estate acquired the leasehold. Small Luxury Hotels of the World acquired the management of the hotel when it opened adding it to their portfolio. [4]

In 2017, it was announced by Cadogan Estate that the management of 11 Cadogan Gardens was to be taken over by London & Regional Properties, the same company that manage Cliveden House, Chewton Glen and The Lygon Arms. The property would also become a part of Iconic Luxury Hotels, a small collection of London & Regional Properties top hotels. Previously, 11 Cadogan Gardens was managed by Luxury Hotel Partners, the management arm of Small Luxury Hotels of the World. [5]

Characteristics[edit]

11 Cadogan Gardens consists of four separate Victorian townhouses and features 56 guestrooms after refurbishment in early 2016.[6] As of 2017 the building also features a restaurant and bar, as well as some private dining facilities. The hotel features an extensive library with a number of historic and antique books, some of which date back to the mid-19th century. The library features works by William Shakespeare and Charles Dickens.

Location[edit]

11 Cadogan Gardens is located on Cadogan Gardens in central Chelsea, London, which neighbours Knightsbridge. The property is 5 minutes from Sloane Square tube station in London and 9 minutes from Victoria, London train station.
