Belmond, the luxury hotel and rail-service operator formerly known as Orient-Express, will take over London's Cadogan hotel after the 127-year-old property undergoes a two-year, $48 million renovation.
The 64-room Cadogan, which opened in London's Chelsea district in 1887, will close at the end of the month. The property will reopen in the summer of 2016 with just 54 rooms.
Belmond's only other U.K. hotel is the 32-room Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons in Oxford. The company, which changed its name from Orient-Express earlier this year, also operates the Belmond British Pullman, Belmond Northern Belle and Belmond Royal Scotsman luxury-rail services.
