GO HERE WITH
Your parents (they may just love that formal British feel); your significant other
WHY WE LIKE IT
The location (fantastic shopping on Sloane Street and in Knightsbridge is just steps away), the traditional and home-like feel, and the fabulous sense of place (you will most certainly know that you are in London).
AMENITY WE LOVE
Lots of complimentary stuff: Wi-Fi, afternoon tea, evening champagne, and nighttime hot chocolate
WHAT WE WOULD CHANGE
While 24-hour room service and the breakfast room enable us to cope without a formal restaurant, we would love an in-house gym!
GOOD TO KNOW
Complimentary in the Drawing Room: tea and biscuits at 4:00pm, champagne at 6:00pm, and hot chocolate from 9:30pm. Each room is named after a famous theatrical or literary personality. Some suites have kitchens. Rooms in the back of the hotel look over private gardens. Guests have access to the private Cadogan Gardens.
