About The Carlton Tower Jumeirah
Opening its doors in 1961 as The Carlton Tower, the hotel gained an international reputation as a beacon of British style and sophistication. It was the first modern five-star property to open in London’s chic Knightsbridge district, as the tallest hotel in London at that time. Reopening in Spring 2020, the extensive refurbishment project will cover all areas of the seventeen storey building. Interiors will be significantly remodelled to include a redesigned and enriched guest arrival experience at the hotel lobby entrance, the creation of a celebrity destination restaurant on Sloane Street, a rejuvenated rooftop health club overlooking Cadogan Gardens and a new state-of the-art design Spa, with its 20-metre indoor pool.
The number of keys will reduce from 216 to 186 with the introduction of new Signature Suites and Junior Suites, which will capitalise on the hotel’s stunning views of the London skyline and the private Cadogan Place Gardens.
