We booked a trip to London to celebrate our sister's 60th birthday, and as a special treat had afternoon tea at the Dorchester. This turned out to be the highlight of the visit. The service was brilliant, the staff could not have been more friendly, they went out of their way to make my sister feel special. Must also mention...

Unfortunately high end hotels in London are hit and miss whereby they're either ultra modern or disturbingly old fashioned, The Dorchester gets the balance just right. From reception, through to the public areas and the rooms there is an element of class that one would expect from Parklane. The architecture of the building is a little misleading as it's almost...

We stayed on December 31st for NYE. Check in at the hotel was seamless. The lady that checked me was very helpful and went over and above what was required in assisting me. I was especially impressed by this as I could see that the hotel was very busy. We had a standard room and I was surprised at how...

"It's so nice" is all I kept saying during our stay at the Dorchester. From the moment the doormen open your car door, you feel special. Phillip checked us in and showed us to our room. Even carrying my bag during a short tour of the hotel. We saw him in the bar later and he came over to chat....

We took a trip into London for family evening out. Set menu plus a glass of champagne. But the atmosphere on a wet early evening was delightful due to the staff and the location. A drink in 'The Bar' not cheap but balanced by exceptional service, fuss and attention from all the team. They were so considerate for our older...

Stayed at the Dorchester for a week over christmas / new year's. Highlights include impeccable service, luxurious room, well equiped gym, and beautiful christmas decorations including a bagpiper in front for new year's. Most of the best London restaurants are within a five minute taxi ride and Hyde park is across the street. Only negative was the view from the...

We took advantage of one of their winter offers,three courses and a glass of Champagne for £49 a head.Great food,good service and atmosphere. A bottle of wine on top however isn't cheap! By the time we'd had a bottle of wine,plus the ''Optional " 12.5% service charge,it came to nearer £80 a head,which I suppose is still reasonable for a...

Just a short stay mainly focussed around the Alain Ducasse restaurant with friends The rooms are quite nice not dissimilar to Claridges, I think there is room for improvement in in room facilities escpaially at this price point (when the rates go up around other city activities) I do think it would be incredibly costly to modernise the hotel so...

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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
