Reviewed 14 April 2017

No question this is one of the finer hotels of the world. Walk through the doors & you feel like royalty. Walk in the room & you know you are. I was here for a casino convention - my Japanese boss offered to either buy me a Louis Vuitton handbag or one night at the Dorchester for working so hard....

There are so many place to go high tea in London. One place that I always visit is the Dorchester. The ambience is beautiful and the service is great. It's a great place to spend the afternoon with friends. It's seems like this place it getting more causal in their dress code these days.

I have stayed here before but mainly I'm a longstanding and regular user of the hotel's various dining and drinks venues. The Promenade was always great for pre and post dinner drinks but more recently it has disappointed, with awkward rules for non residents and no matter how busy or quiet, it always seems problematic to get a table without...

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood Profile
Mayfair
Set beside some of London's best parks and home to world-class galleries, luxurious hotels, and famed thoroughfares, the ultra upscale Mayfair is one of London's most exclusive haunts. Here the shopping is haute, the dining is exquisite, and the nightlife is vibrant. A casual stroll through the area’s chic streets will reveal that Michelin stars and chauffeured cars are practically the norm here. Even if you're on a tight budget, this exceptionally well connected swath of Central London is worth exploring, if only for the chance to take a peak at the goings on of upper crust English society.

The Dorchester occupies the most prestigious acre and a half of real estate in the world, in the heart of Mayfair overlooking the glorious green expanse of Hyde Park. The preferred hotel of British society, The Dorchester embodies the highest service values whilst its design and character exude 1930s glamour with a contemporary edge. Prized for its spacious and beautifully designed rooms and suites, The Dorchester’s restaurants and bars - Alain Ducasse, China Tang, The Grill and The Promenade – also attract Londoners and the glitterati alike. The Dorchester Spa was recently transformed to create the most desirable and indulgent pampering destination in London with a uniquely named Spatisserie for tea and cake. ... more   less
