For over a hundred years the Connaught has consistently celebrated the good fortune of its priceless location, together with a coveted heritage. Today, it benefits from a finely-tuned restoration, creating a unique, uncluttered and discreetly grand experience - resulting in the ultimate London stay for genuine connoisseurs of luxury.
Leading interior designers have been commissioned to apply their creativity, while keeping a respectful eye on the hotel’s remarkable legacy, simultaneously entertaining the discerning Connaught guest with a combination of supreme comfort and luxurious style. Skilled artisans have restored and, in several instances, uncovered remarkable original features, while integrating contemporary art and technology in order to make staying at the Connaught an unforgettable experience.
The feeling of intimacy is projected throughout the Connaught in its careful attention to classical and contemporary detail. The residential-styled suites and rooms have been refurbished by leading interior designer, Guy Oliver, who has a particular interest in period renovation including the well-proportioned characteristics adhered to by the Adam-style of interiors: formality, symmetry and simplicity.
The gravitas of the interiors have been maintained, while, at the same time, modern statements have fitted in with stylish ease. A refreshed palette of period colours, such as peppermint green with silver leaf and Edwardian-slate, adorn the walls, while gilt mirrors and period oil paintings have been spectacularly restored. Soft furnishings, such as flattering damask silk curtains, frame many of the wide windows, while striking furniture, both bespoke and inherited, has been fitted to suit the individual style of each room and suite.
The bold white bathrooms have been interpreted using the finest natural materials, such as the striking Grecian Thassos marble that reflects both cleanliness and purity. The solid nickel taps and built in vanity units are gentle references to the 'Deco period, while the flat-screen televisions above the large enamelled, cast iron baths are a luxurious reminder of today’s cosseting technology.
The Connaught is a warm, glowing, elegant London residence.
The Connaught offers a unique, genuinely bespoke service, to all its guests. A close collaboration between knowledgeable concierge and personalised butler services ensures that every moment of your stay is trouble-free. This service provides everything you need outside the hotel (by the concierge) with everything you need inside the hotel (by your personal butler). The concierge team of experts, with on-the-pulse knowledge of what’s going on in and around London, will inform your stay from touch-down to take-off.
Once you have checked-in, your personal butler will be waiting outside your suite door, with your ‘wish list’ complete, in order to familiarise you with your suite surroundings. From hereon in, the butlers will cater for your every whim, including prompt room service from sunrise to sunrise. Their sartorial knowledge is matched by their understanding of modern trends; and they are all fully trained in I.T.
