Description of Royal Garden Hotel
The Royal Garden Hotel opened in 1965 and was an official hotel for the FIFA World Cup the following year. The hotel also hosted the Euro 96 Championships, the Cricket World Cup 1999 and the ICC Champions Trophy 2004.
The Royal Garden Hotel is the international sportsperson’s London hotel of choice. Sir Bobby Charlton and many of today’s talented football stars have all stayed at the hotel as well as leading Japanese sumo wrestlers and international rugby and cricket teams, including most recently the England Rugby Team and the current Rugby World Champions, South Africa.
The Royal Garden Hotel also boasts a rock star heritage. This has much to do with the location on High Street Kensington where swinging London took off in the 1960s. At that time, guests included Sonny and Cher, Abba and the Monkees. Contemporary celebrities and opera divas still love to stay here and often remark on the warm, friendly 5-star service. Another benefit of our location is the proximity to the Royal Albert Hall, Hammersmith Apollo and Shepherds Bush Empire, which are all close at hand.
Today, the hotel remains privately owned, with two sister properties in Singapore - The Goodwood Park Hotel and York Hotel.
