We have stayed at this hotel many times with my husband (with my children and on girls weekends) every time they never fail to make your stay perfect. I can't recommend this hotel enough. I have stayed at the Connaught, Savoy, Claridges and other lovely hotels and although they are all of a high standard and very nice, the Dorchester...

Stayed in a queen room, which was quite well appointed with a nice bathroom outfitted in white marble. Even though I arrived at 8am, way before the 3pm check in time, the room was ready and the staff were extremely friendly. The hotel is located just across Hyde Park so it was easy to get to most attractions.

Well, I have been to The Dorchester on several occasions. Alan Ducass has been one of my favourite restaurants in London. However, the staff at the other bars and restaurants have not always been up to standard. This review covers The Promenade bar. One evening I took my wife to have cocktails and listen to the pianist whom I had...

Second stay at the Dorchester, it's a classic hotel with fantastic service. The staff cannot help you enough and the rooms are perfect. Every bit worth the treat me and my partner were spoilt. Hope to return again soon.

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.
