Relais & Chateaux adds second London property to its portfolio – Business Traveller

The Chelsea Townhouse has joined the luxury hotel and restaurant collection Relais and Chateaux as its second London member.

The boutique 36-room property opened in September 2023 following an extensive transformation of the former Draycott Hotel, and is a sister property to existing Relais & Chateaux member, 11 Cadogan Gardens.

The property is located across three Victorian red-brick townhouses and also forms part of the Iconic Luxury Hotels collection. For more information, see:
