In the 18th century, the site the hotel was built on was part of the Buckingham Palace grounds. The hotel opened its doors in 1912 and quickly became popular with attendees of Buckingham Palaces royal functions and debutantes. General Sikorski’s Free State Polish Army took the hotel over during the second world war as its headquarters. 


In 1997 the hotel was sold to the Red Carnation Hotel Collection, a family-owned company who run the hotel to this day. The award-winning hotel is rated one of the best in London. 

In 2013, London’s largest Living Wall, standing at 350 square metres was unveiled by The Rubens. This ecological marvel contains a grand total of 10,000 herbaceous plants.
