Description The Connaught in Carlos Place, Mayfair, central London, is a five star luxury hotel.The hotel first opened in 1815 as the Prince of Saxe Coburg Hotel, an offshoot of a hotel opened by Alexander Grillon in Albemarle Street, Mayfair, and was originally a pair of Georgian houses in Charles Street, near Grosvenor Square. The Duke of Westminster decided to redevelop the area, and the street was changed, becoming Carlos Place. In 1892 Scorrier, the owner, applied to rebuild the hotel although work did not start until two years later, when the original houses were demolished.In 1897, the Coburg Hotel duly reopened. In 1917, during World War I, the decision was made to change the name to the Connaught. The name chosen was taken from the title of Queen Victorias 3rd son, Prince Arthur, the first Duke of Connaught. (Wikipedia) Original photo.
