My husband and I recently stayed at the Dorchester for three nights while on a trip through England and France. When Gloria discovered at check-in that we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, she upgraded us to an enormous and lovely Belgravia suite overlooking the park. We had fresh flowers and fruit delivered to our room each day, as well...

I had the opportunity to be a guest at a function in the Grand room of the Dorchester. The room was displayed perfectly. The waiters on arrival were attentive and kept your glasses full. It's a shame the meal was a little bit of a let down. I understand they were catering for just under a 1000 guests but surely...

World class hotel, bar and service all around. Best location in Mayfair with easy access to Hyde Park, 10 minutes to Palace and good 'ole Pubs closeby. Excellent security. Not cheap but worth every penny. Added bonus - If you love oggling fine cars then their car park will not disappoint. Just don't touch.

Located in the heart of London, you can expect a top level service on a luxury environment. Expect a traditional-style hotel with well kept rooms with on a classic atmosphere. Expensive as you would imagine, you will be paying the premium location and heritage. Don't forget to try the signature dishes!

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.
