Flagship Hotel Re-opens After Multi-Million Refurb

The Carlton Tower Jumeirah opens in the heart of London’s fashionable Knightsbridge next month following a £100m makeover.

It is the European flagship hotel of global luxury hospitality company, Jumeirah Group and is the most expensive refurbishment in the hotel’s 60 year history with every corner of the 17-story building redesigned, creating a new foyer and reception, 186 new bedrooms and suites reduced from 216 to offer larger accommodations, a new health club and spa with London’s largest naturally lit swimming pool, a restaurant, Lobby bar and lounge, ballroom and meetings rooms.

Located overlooking the world-famous Sloane Street and key London landmarks, The Carlton Tower Jumeirah is a modern classic and sophisticated destination with a rich history. The hotel maintains its world-renowned reputation for first class service and meticulous attention to detail, and has been reinvented for a new generation of discerning guests.

The five-star property originally opened in 1961 as London’s first tower hotel and was celebrated for being the tallest in London at the time. The Carlton Tower was the epitome of glamour: the place to see and be seen, where international stars came to stay and Chelsea socialites flocked to play.
