“Business conference of very high standard”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Went for the Cateys conference. Staff were excellent, food was very good. Very much enjoyed the conference and would definitely return for business. The location is fantastic with Knightsbridge tube station nearby.

I have shared your excellent feedback with the whole team here at the hotel and can tell you they are delighted, especially the events and banqueting operations team who assisted throughout the event.

Once again thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and we very much look forward to seeing you again soon.

I have stayed at the Carlton Tower a few times now and it never fails to impress. It is a luxury hotel in a fantastic yet discreet location.
The staff have always been helpful and immaculately presented. The rooms are spacious and the beds are extremely comfortable which is a must for a perfect nights sleep.
I have used the hotels facilities and they are all of a 5 star rating.
However is you want to dine or drink out there are a number of great little places to suit all budgets within a couple of minutes walk. I will keep coming back as it is always a bit of a treat.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for such a fantastic review.

The whole team here at the hotel really works together to go that extra mile to provide memorable experiences for our guests and am glad you experienced this.

We are spoilt here at the hotel with our location being just off of Sloane street and opposite the private Cadogan Gardens, which means the hotel is in a peaceful location however within walking distance to some of London’s top attractions and department stores.

Thank you for staying with us and we hope to treat you again soon.

Kind regards,

Elsa

Stayed at Jumeriah Carlton Tower on a one night Sirius reward break.
A very nice stay and I had a dilemma as to whether to award four or five stars.

The five star reasons:
An upgraded room on arrival - always a fantastic start!
The room itself was lovely with a small balcony overlooking the park
Very efficient and friendly check in
Fabulous location
Housekeeping superb
Lovely REN amenities
Great nights sleep
Huge selection of breakfast items
Concierge (Gavin) was particularly helpful with sorting out good-seat theatre tickets for us to see the Woman in Black (very scary!) and recommending an authentic Indian restaurant.

The reasons why its not quite five star:
Door staff ignored us several times both on the way in and out
We had to wait an extraordinary length of time for 2 drinks to arrive in the bar, observing several other people who had arrived after us get theirs
Filled out a guest preference form before arrival - only minor requests, but no notice was taken of them
As expected, the door card timed out at 12 midday on our departure day. No issue with that, however, reception updated our cards but they still didn't work and we had to go down again.
There was no initial greeting when entering the Rib Room for breakfast. Particularly as this was our first stay at the hotel we had no idea whether to just take a seat or to wait.

Would definately stay again if using points for another rewards stay.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback.

Firstly, I am glad that overall you enjoyed your stay with us, appreciating the room, location, the breakfast selection and the warm service on arrival. I was also particularly delighted to read that you received great service from Gavin, one of our concierge, in being able to get the hottest tickets in town for one of London’s shows and arranged an authentic Indian to top off a great evening.

I would however like to sincerely apologise for the shortfall in service which you have highlighted. I would like to assure you that this is not the normal high levels of service which we pride ourselves in and aim to deliver to our guests and your feedback has been shared with the hotel management for review.

I do hope that you will give us another opportunity in the near future to reach that 5 star rating and enjoy the perfect stay.

Kind regards,

Elsa

New to TripAdvisor, but have been staying at the Carlton Tower for years. We’re now living in the US, but when in the UK and going to London for weekend treats, a night in this hotel was as much a part of the treat, as whatever it was we came in to do and, for my children, it probably was the treat!

From the doormen, who are the friendliest and most welcoming anywhere in the world, who make you feel as if you’re an honoured guest who they recognise and welcome, this hotel is faultless.

The rooms are amazing, the most spacious hotel rooms anywhere and upgraded many times over the years. Great bathrooms, amazing amenities (last time we were here the bathroom amenities were REN) and the most comfortable beds you’ll ever sleep in.

Excellent for families and some food treats the children will die for.

Breakfast’s a bit pricey, especially when there are four of you, so watch out for that and think about your second mortgage, but it’s a very good breakfast and you may not have to eat for the rest of the day, so you can at least save on lunch! (There’s also a Starbucks 2 mins away)

A great hotel in a great location, highly recommend to anyone.

I had an amazing stay at the Jumeriah Carlton Tower London. Check in was very easy and was given a warm welcome on arrival. Concierge went above and beyond getting us last minute amazing seats to a west end show. There was a fantastic choice of new released movies to watch and incredibly fast speed WIFI that even my own home WIFI doesn't compare to. The room was also fitted with top of the range iPhone speakers which was an added bonus. Overall i had an excellent and luxurious stay here.

It is such a delight to read a review like this.

The team here at the hotel is what makes a stay special and am glad that from the moment you arrived the reception team gave you a warm welcome and the concierge was able to assist in getting those last minute tickets to the West End Show.

We have recently invested in upgrading our internet package throughout the whole hotel, which delivers seamless high speed internet and am glad you were able to experience this.

Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback and we look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind regards,
