We were lucky enough to get married in the Dorchester. It was a wonderful experience. The hotel staff cannot be faulted in any way. It's not the first time visited the Dorchester and we've have already booked a stay for our 1st anniversary later this year. A magical place.

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....

As ever our stay at the Dorchester was fantastic. We had two junior suites / both are a good size and classically luxurious. The bar had a great atmosphere with live music and breakfast was perfect. Overall it is the consistency of everything that makes it our first choice london hotel.

Make a reservation for afternoon tea. The Dorchester tea is an experience to savor. The sandwiches are very good especially the salmon. Start with the signature blend Dorchester tea, it's delicious and since they allow you to change tea throughout the service you can try a couple of flavored. The best part of the experience is the service; very handsome...

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
