Nestled in the heart of London’s luxury fashion quarter, The Draycott Hotel takes advantage of its fabulous location and offers guests the most stylish of stays. A visit to The Draycott not only includes elegantly decorated rooms, but also a chance to get the ‘London look’ with the hotel’s team of experienced personal shoppers.
Having been named England’s Leading Boutique Hotel on five consecutive occasions, you have the right to have extremely high expectations. But believe us – you will not be disappointed!
It is the minor touches that make this boutique hotel stand out from the crowd. Situated in a quiet street just minutes away from Sloane Square, The Draycott Hotel is housed in three red-brick Victorian mansion blocks. Each of the 35 rooms, named after Edwardian artists, pay homage to their namesakes with quirky furnishings like photographs or books. The beds are comfy, the pillows fluffed and the chairs are so inviting you will want to take them home. Despite being surrounded by decadent luxury, the most impressive aspect of The Draycott Hotel is that you feel right at home. The décor is homely yet super-luxe, a world away from the hospital style white walls and polished glass of most modern hotels. Most rooms feature a cozy Victorian fire-place, with a sofa perfectly placed in front allowing you to snuggle up with a good book at the end of the day. The staff are ever so caring and attentive, yet they are never in your way – a very difficult balance to achieve.
The hotel also boasts a beautiful enclosed garden that can be accessed through the drawing room, allowing guests to relax in peace and quiet after their busy days exploring Chelsea.
As if The Draycott Hotel couldn’t get any more lavish, guests can also enjoy complimentary drinks each day served in the drawing room. Tea and biscuits (including the most divine shortbread) at 4pm, champagne at 6pm and hot chocolate at 9pm makes for a routine you will want to adopt for years to come!
For added comfort, all rooms have AC, complimentary Wi-Fi, Freeview TV, DVD and CD players.
Although there is no restaurant in the hotel, guests are still spoilt for choice when it comes to food. 24-hour room service offering a selection of hot and cold dishes (we love the grilled Atlantic salmon!) makes sure guests never go hungry. Alternatively, if you fancy eating out for dinner, Chelsea’s extensive list of eateries is right on your doorstep. Breakfast is served in the breakfast room (of course!), consisting of a buffet with hot dishes cooked to order.
The hotel’s ‘Styled in Chelsea’ experience is a must for those visiting the hotel over London Fashion Week. On top of the usual perks of The Draycott Hotel, guests are taken on an adventure through the luxurious streets of Chelsea with exclusive access to independent boutiques, traditional outfitters and upcoming designers. Chelsea is also home to many flagship stores, including Tom Ford, Rigby & Peller and Trilogy making it the shopping destination. Guided by a member of the hotel’s fashion elite, each guest will be styled head-to-toe, incorporating the guest’s personality, to take on the famous Chelsea style scene. This is pampering at its finest and trust us, you will feel amazing – and have the wardrobe to match!
A stay at The Draycott Hotel will leave you feeling as luxurious as the hotel itself! We definitely recommend you book a stay in time for (4pm) tea!
