The Egerton House, a Red Carnation Hotel, offers guest’s stylish intimacy, pampering, luxury and warm professional service. The hotel's flair is evident upon your arrival; the immaculate and stately adjoined red brick Victorian townhouses stand regally amidst posh Egerton Gardens in the stylish Knightsbridge section of London. This very desirable location is convenient to many of London's top attractions, including the Victoria and Albert Museum, Hyde Park, Harrods, Royal Albert Hall, the world-class shopping areas on Sloan Street and throughout Knightsbridge.

At this well-mannered hotel, each of the 29 guestrooms is individually decorated, featuring spacious marble bathrooms and the latest entertainment technology, including flat-screen TVs, WiFi and specially programmed iPod Nano stereo players. The guestrooms are sharp and fully realized in their design ambitions, accented with handpicked antiques, redolent in rich textures, opulent fabrics and plush amenities.

Vibrantly modern rooms in shades of blue contrast with graceful richly rooms decorated with sumptuous shades of beige and white. Modern rooms, vibrant in shades of blue, contrast with the graceful elegance of restful quarters that are richly decorated yet understated in quiet tones of beige and white. Others reflect an English Country garden with cabbage rose print duvet and drapes that complement those done in earthy tones of warm browns and beige. The posh and elegant guestrooms, with heavy drapes framing the windows, chandeliers cascading from the ceilings, and classic art adorning the walls, nonetheless artfully dodge any portrayal of stuffiness.

Guests may enjoy breakfast in the privacy of their rooms or in the cozy but bright drawing room located on the ground floor. This elegant drawing room, is a delightful spot for you to enjoy English Tea in front of the grand fireplace. In the evenings, the intimate cocktail bar located in the rear of the drawing room attracts not only hotel guests but also some of London's most fashionable residents who seek privacy amidst luxury.
