My first encounter with the Jumeirah Group was back in 2015 at Grosvenor House Apartments. So it made perfect sense to review the Jumeirah Carlton Tower during our Lifestyle and London Fashion Week. The history of the this British style, fashion and sophistication, regarding this particular property is intriguing from the moment you enter it. Over the years it has hosted many famous people and style icons. This makes perfect sense considering it is located on, Sloane Street in the heart of Knightsbridge. If high end shopping is what you are seeking, the boutiques of Sloane Square and the world famous Harrods are just a stone throws away.
SUPERIOR GARDEN VIEW ROOM
There are 216 guest rooms including 58 suites. I was give the overview superior garden view room, overlooking the picturesque Cadogan Gardens. The gardens cannot be accessed by anyone. so if you want to take a look then ask the concierge for the key. For me this is an excellent unique service because the garden is highly maintained and not open for public use. in my situation, it was perfect for my interview with Colin, who was wearing a vintage hat worth over £10,000. We had the garden to ourselves and was not interrupted by any one but the gardens themselves.
I know central London very well and have been visiting this fabulous city for 20 years. So to be able to have a view of uninterrupted views of one of the most prestigious areas of London. Is trully a rare experience to take in this vast city for 2016. The room was comfortable and I liked the custom made furnishings that was simple. With a view such as this, my favourite part was the sophisticated entertainment system. At times I chose my own music with a simple wireless connection and been gifted one of the best macaroons I have tasted. I had a fabulous time here just reflecting on many things. For me the comfort of the bed and many pillows allows me to rest for a few hours and when I wake up at 4am, it was so nice to play the music and hear the dead silence of London. The nespresso machine and tea options also is simple but welcoming at anytime of the day.
Why Molton Brown?
In reviewing over 70 hotels, I am finding they can be the most wasteful institutions when it comes to bathroom products. So it was nice to see, they have chosen to team up with the famous brand, Molton Brown London. Their products are naturally derived ingredients from sustainable sources around the world. Their iconic bottles are made of PET 1, the most environmentally friendly plastic which is 100% recyclable. Regarding delivery, all their hotel amenities are made in the UK. It was also refreshing to see that they stock your bathroom twice daily if you need it. I also noticed that brand loyalty here is strong and you can ask for purchases to take away with you.
The Peak Health Club & Spa
The Peak Health Club & Spa is one of the most stunning clubs over looking central London. I find that hotels are always struggling to lure in clients to come and visit the club. In this case it is so well equipped both with the latest facilities and gorgeous 20 metre indoor swimming pool view. I loved swimming here looking up and looking out to a city that is about to wake up or if you’re a night swimmer watching London slowly go to sleep.
I found it was hosting both regularly members and well as outside guests. This to me is a clear sign of a very successful club. All the facilities are well maintained and if you are choosing to have afternoon tea here, let alone breakfast. The restaurant has more than enough options to cater for a nice eating experience, after a hard work out at the gym.
You can enjoy a relaxing spa treatments which is always essential on places like this. For the first time I tried the popular Hydrafacial treatment. This technology is all done by a machine, its purpose is about deep cleaning to diffusing serums into my skin. Also, HydraFacials are a supplement to the facials we are use too. So the Hydrafacial is the non – conventional facial technology trending for both men and women for 2016. You can read a more detail account about my experience here.
At this level with so many business clients staying here. It is important the well trained and long standing staff know when to serve and how to treat clients. I talked to two staff members who have worked over twenty years here , which is a remarkable statement in itself. I could see that the staff, knew their regular clients and treated them as part of a big extended family. In a world where stress is higher than ever regarding business. For me it is important that staff members recognize and cater for your personal needs. The breakfast is of a very high standard offering unsual chices. One of my favorites was the beetroot & carrot gluten free muffin. Please take the time to enjoy breakfast.
If you’re looking for a place to chill, shop and enjoy the finest things in a hotel, then this is your place. If you’re a person that loves dressing up and showoff your latest wardrobe let alone luxury car, then you must stay here. Amongst the wealth that was in this hotel, it always confirms one thing. That it is the very people that take the time to make you feel welcome is why the Jumeirah Carlton Tower has stood the test of times over the years. Thank you for going that extra mile for me especially regarding a hectic few days of deliveries.
