Steps from boutiques like Prada, Hermès, and Christian Dior, The Cadogan’s Sloan Street address is convenient for shoppers. A 2007 refit spruced up the century-old Edwardian townhouse’s guest rooms and public spaces, including its drawing room, where afternoon tea is held daily. All 65 rooms occupy the first and second floors, and are embellished with showy fabrics and baroque prints. Guests relax in front of Langtry’s Carrera-marble Louis XIV fireplace with a glass of wine before dining on British staples such as Welsh smoked kipper pâté and seared Aylesbury duck breast.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
