The 228-room hotel is the latest addition to the hotel brand, and features 11 suites, tailored and named after famous historic residents of Kensington including Alfred Hitchcock, Dame Agatha Christie and Captain Robert Scott.
The property was formerly the home of Victorian aristocrat William Henry Alexander, and has been transformed into a hotel that “embraces the building’s heritage”, retaining much of its original 1870s architecture.
According to the brand, the design elements of the hotel have been “specially designed to spark curiosity and inspire guests to explore the delights of both Kensington and the great city beyond”.
Mary Doogan, cluster general manager, said: “Following a two-year transformation, we are excited to open 100 Queen’s Gate Hotel – London, the newest Curio Collection by Hilton hotel. The hotel is a fantastic addition to the Curio Collection by Hilton portfolio, further strengthening our partnership with Hilton.
“With the opening of 100 Queen’s Gate Hotel – London, we believe we have captured this spirit and brought it to life with our own unique story. The hotel is thoughtfully designed, in keeping with the building’s Victorian history – from the cabinets of curiosities and décor, to Botanica, the Victorian-inspired orangery.”
