Owned and managed by the Emirati firm Jumeirah who have most of their hotels in Dubai, it is located on Cadogan Place next to Sloane Street and is extremely close to Harrods, Harvey Nichols and the centre of Knightsbridge.

Other dining outlets at Jumeirah Carlton Tower include Chinoiserie, an all-day dining outlet located just off the lobby of the hotel.

The Peak Health Club & Spa is also located at Jumeirah Carlton Tower and is known as one of London's most exclusive health clubs. Facilities include an indoor stainless steel swimming pool; indoor golf simulator; Jacuzzi, separate male and female steam rooms and saunas; two fitness studios and a state-of-the-art range of gym equipment.

History[edit]

When the Jumeirah Carlton Tower opened in 1961, it was the tallest building in London, and attracted the attention of high-profile international travellers keen to experience modern luxury. In 2011, to celebrate its 50th year in business, the hotel published an informative book, following the venue’s history. ‘All That Life Can Afford’ documents the Jumeirah Carlton’s colourful past, combining images and anecdotes from an era of exciting travel and accommodation developments.[2]
