...At Sloane

Located just off Chelsea’s iconic Sloane Square, ...At Sloane is a new, 30-bedroom destination hotel that combines the quintessentially British style of the Cadogan Estate with French savoir faire by way of revered interior designer Francois-Joseph Graf. Envisioned as a as a quintessential English guest house, it exudes an air of timeless elegance and intimacy where Chelsea charm meets Parisian chic.

Originally crafted in 1889 by architect Edwin Thomas Hall, ...At Sloane comes following an extensive six-year building project. The historic façade has been retained whilst the interior was completely remodelled, and an additional sixth floor with its own cupola added.

Arts and Crafts detailing is inspired by Chelsea’s long association with this artistic movement, including William Morris wallpaper and mirrors adorning the stair walls whilst the corridors contain hand-painted calligraphy leading towards the bedrooms and suites. Dozens of artisans and craftspeople collaborated to bring François-Joseph Graf's vision to life, including the creation of no fewer than 21 carpet designs, 19 curtain designs and 50 custom made fabrics.

In the rooms, an Anglo-Asian aesthetic is achieved through cream English panelling with pieces of antique furniture with a nod to Godwin and Mackintosh, as well as a touch of Japonisme. Stained-glass windows offer a characteristically British level of intimacy, but walk-in wardrobes cheekily named the ‘Mistress Door’, ‘Love’ and ‘Music’ switch controls, and black and white photography celebrating love and personalities give these decadent, personal spaces take a more playful tone.

Housed on the new top floor, ...At Sloane’s spectacular light filled restaurant was inspired by the ‘Peacock Room’ created in 1876 by architect Thomas Jeckyll and local artist Whistler in 1876 (the original was later relocated to the Smithsonian Gallery). Panoramic views open across the city skyline, while the restaurant’s elegant cupola offers an octagonal space with vistas across Chelsea. Epicureans can enjoy a menu that offers the best of French cuisine at the hour of one’s choosing. The most ‘Parisian’ space at the hotel, the downstairs lounge has a private entrance on Holbein Place. A ‘speakeasy’ style space, guests can indulge in cocktails and fine wines to the sounds of the hotel's resident DJ.

…At Sloane is the address for those in the know, it is where glamour and charm combine to create a classically Parisian ambience, with a signature scent and sounds to match. Marking a moment of regeneration in Chelsea, …At Sloane infuses this most refined of London neighbourhoods with a new energy, standing as a testament to tailor-made luxury.
