Named after royalty

The Siberian forest cat, Lilibet, is charming, elegant, and loves to play around with guests and employees. She is named after Queen Elizabeth II who is lovingly called Lilibet by close family and friends.

Siberian forest cats are known to be a breed which is sociable, confident and energetic.

Lilibet, who is an adorable kitten, joined the hotel in June, where she is often found wandering the beautiful hotel lobby, engaging with guests, playing with mouse toys, getting petted with hotel employees (otherwise known as the Cat Committee), who take good care of her.

No allergies!

Lilibet is super fun, fluffy and hypoallergenic – so she is safe to be around, an ideal breed for hotel guests who may have allergies.

We’re sure she’s enjoying her time meeting new guests every day and eating left over from the Michelin star restaurant which is part of the hotel.
