The Cadogan Hotel is Sold
The Cadogan Hotel in London's Knightsbridge has been purchased by the Cadogan Estate.
The Cadogan Estate bought the hotel from Trinity Hotel Investors for £15.4m. The 124-year-old converted townhouse hotel currently has 65 rooms and suites and is home to Langtry's restaurant. The interiors feature high sculpted ceilings, oversized mirrors, chandeliers and original stained glass windows.
Hugh Seaborn, Chief Executive of the Cadogan Estate, said: "The hotel will continue to operate as it is for the time being and in due course it will be upgraded so as to better reflect the elegance of Sloane Street."
As yet it is unknown whether the Cadogan Estate will work to preserve and enhance the historic features of the hotel, in the same manner as Marriott which recently restored the former Midland Grand Hotel at London's St. Pancras Station.
