Historic hotel has been a sanctuary for the rich and famous since 1900
One of Chelsea’s most famous landmarks, the Sloane Square Hotel started out as a private home when built in 1771. It wasn’t until 1900 that it became one of London’s poshest accommodations, opening as the 4 star Royal Court Hotel.
Over the next 100-plus years the Royal Court was the preferred Chelsea stop-overs for celebrities, none more famous than The Beatles, who stayed their regularly during the swinging 1960s.
After a complete refurbishment and a rename – still 4 stars, it was rechristened as the Sloane Square Hotel in 2006 – the hotel remains one of the most elegant privately owned hotels in London.
