The Cadogan Hotel feels like a country manor in the middle of the city, some may find that it still caters for the 'old guard', more than attracting a new crowd, as traditional British style is embedded into the hotel, despite modernisation; however, this means that you can expect excellent, attentive service; exquisite surroundings and plenty of personality. If you choose to stay at The Cadogan, be sure to request a room away from Sloane Street if you are a light sleeper, and elevator shafts, which can be noisy.
