Cadogan hotel's £1.7m new look is unveiled

Paris-based boutique hotels group GLA International has unveiled the first phase of a new look for the Cadogan hotel in London's Knightsbridge.

The five-month, £1.7m renovation has been overseen by GLA president Grace Leo-Andrieu. Two floors of bedrooms and the public areas have now been completed using fabrics inspired by Parisian catwalks, and lamps, pictures and chandeliers acquired from London antique shops.

The Cadogan, previously owned by Historic House Hotels, was bought last year by a partnership headed by New York-based marketing consortium Leading Hotels of the World for a rumoured £14m. GLA International took over the management of the hotel in August 2003.

GLA was formed in 1995 and manages five other hotels: the Lancaster, Hotel Montalembert and Hotel Bel Ami, all in Paris; the Hotel Royal Riviera in St Jean Cap Ferrat near Nice; and the Cotton House in Mustique, in the Caribbean. It will also manage the Bairro Alto in Lisbon when it opens in September.
