The Chelsea based hotel, which opened on 28th February following restoration, features over 430 pieces of original artwork. In total, 34 artists have been involved in creating the art collection, of which 23 are women and 29 are British.
The collection is inspired by botanicals, linking to nearby Cadogan Place Gardens and the local area of Chelsea.

The hotel itself has often been host to society over the years. Actress and socialite Lillie Langtry entertained the Prince of Wales using a discrete wood-panelled door that you can still use today. Oscar Wilde famously held his pied-à-terre in room 118 – today the Royal Suite.
The tours are available on Wed 30th Sept and Thur 1st Oct, both running from 11am. The tours last around half an hour.
This website has been running now for just over a decade, and while advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It's very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of this website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
