Jumeirah Group‘s European flagship hotel in the heart of London’s fashion hub, Knightsbridge, will open its doors on 1 June 2021 after an 18-month closure for refurbishment.
More than £100 million was ploughed into the transformation on The Carlton Tower Jumeirah, which entailed every corner of the 17-storey building being redesigned, creating a new foyer and reception, 186 new bedrooms and suites (reduced from 216 to offer larger accommodations), a new health club and spa with London’s largest naturally lit swimming pool, a restaurant, lobby bar and lounge, ballroom and meeting rooms.
Located overlooking the world-famous Sloane Street and key London landmarks, The Carlton Tower Jumeirah is a modern classic and sophisticated destination with a rich history. The hotel maintains its world-renowned reputation for first-class service and meticulous attention to detail, and has been reinvented for a new generation of discerning guests.
The five-star property originally opened in 1961 as London’s first tower hotel. The hotel is now transformed by interior and architecture design studio ‘1508 London’. The design practice has drawn on the hotel’s glamorous heritage and location to create a modern classic with a timeless, refined interior and sense of grandeur.
Respectful of the building’s original, clean modernist style, 1508 London has layered the eclectic mix of the architecture of the surrounding mansion blocks and homes, adding soft curved edges, pops of bright colour and organic inspired forms throughout.
Rooms and Suites
The 186 beautifully appointed guest rooms have all been renovated to the highest standard, designed to offer a sense of tranquillity with an emphasis on light and space. Almost 50% of the keys at The Carlton Tower are suites, reflecting the hotel patrons’ historical preference for increased space and longer stays.
Close to 90 of the rooms and suites have the fantastic benefit of a balcony, taking advantage of the stunning views across London. Combining a modernist aesthetic with minimal style, the accommodations feature textured wall panelling, furnishings in softer forms and accents in a warm colour palette influenced by British heritage hues in deep blue, green and maroon as well as floor to ceiling marble bathrooms with toiletries by Grown Alchemist.
Newly created is the Royal Suite, the hotel’s most exclusive residence featuring three bedrooms with the option to privatise the entire floor for the utmost in security and discretion.
Nightly room rates at The Carlton Tower Jumeirah start at £540 including VAT (approximately AU$985).
Jumeirah operates two other hotels in London – Grosvenor House Suites by Jumeirah Living and Jumeirah Lowndes Hotel.
