A famous Parisian hotelier who counts A list stars Beyonce and Kim Kardashian as customers, is planning to make his UK boutique hotel debut in the prestigious Sloane Square in London.
Jean-Louis Costes owns Hôtel Costes in the French capital and has teamed up with the Cadogan Estate – one of London’s biggest landowners – to bring his chic concept to the UK for the first time.
He plans to create a Chelsea version of the Rue St Honore venue and hopes to convert the Victorian apartment building at One Sloane Gardens into an opulent 40-bedroom boutique hotel.
The work is expected to start later this year with the project complete in 2016.
Costes and Cadogan said the hotel would “reflect his enduring principles of elegance and individual spirit – capturing the best of the cultural and social milieu of the location and moment in time.”
