History: Celebrating its 125th birthday in 2012, this luxury hotel on Sloane Street has a fascinating history. Built in 1887, the Knightsbridge hotel was once home to Lillie Langtry, the famous actress and close friend of King Edward VII. It was here that her liaisons with the future King of England took place. After she sold the house, Lillie continued to stay in her old bedroom, Room 109, which had become part of the hotel. The Cadogan also has strong links with the Irish playwright Oscar Wilde, who was a frequent visitor of Room 118, where his infamous arrest took place. In recent years, the hotel has been reunited with Cadogan Estates, having been purchased by Earl Cadogan in 2011. This is the first time in The Cadogan’s history that the hotel has been owned by the family whose name it bears.
