Opened in 1965, the Royal Garden Hotel is an independently owned 5 red star hotel situated on Kensington High Street. The hotel neighbours Kensington Gardens, once the private grounds of Kensington Palace, the former residence of Diana, Princess of Wales and current residence of William & Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
As the international sportspersons’ London hotel of choice, its guests range from top football stars to leading international rugby and cricket teams, including the 2011 Rugby World Cup winners, New Zealand All Blacks and the 2007 Cricket Cup winners, Australia. In 1966, the Royal Garden Hotel was the official hotel for the FIFA World Cup as well hosting the UEFA Euro ‘96 Championships, the Cricket World Cup in 1999 and the ICC Champions Trophy in 2004 and 2013.
The hotel also boasts a vast rock star heritage. This has much to do with its location, where swinging London really took off in the 1960s. At that time, guests included Sonny and Cher, Abba and The Monkees. Today, many contemporary pop acts and opera divas still like to stay at the Royal Garden Hotel, with venues including the Royal Albert Hall, Hammersmith Apollo and Shepherds Bush Empire close by.
The hotel remains privately owned, with two sister properties in Singapore – The Goodwood Park Hotel and York Hotel.
