When you talk about The Dorchester you talk about fairytale. It's pure magic. I've been at The Dorchester for about 4 times already, the first time was somewhere around May 2013. I always keep coming back there. Maybe you ask youself why? Or why The Dorchester and not any other hotel/place? Well, firstly I always feel like home (I was... More

I have had the most amazing time in this great hotel in London;it is a grand hotel but feels very intimate and homely.The service is probably the best available in the World;the Dorchester bar is great if you want to meet people in a very special environment.

This was a special treat for my wife's birthday. The Dorchester experience is one to enjoy and soak up the atmosphere of a world class hotel. It is expensive but, you do get what you pay for.

The service level here is quite high. As are the prices. But comparatively speaking the quality level here is well worth the expense . High tea was areal treat, themed to coincide with tennis matches , it was almost too much of a good thing. If you want thes best, and the budget will bear, try the Dorchester .

I only got to stay there for two days during my trip to London; however, it was one of the most comfortable stays in any hotel I have ever been to. One and only drawback was that staff was all around the place at every single moment; it gets a bit uncomfortable as you feel that outside the hotel room... More

Breakfast was excellent, The Dorchester Bar cocktails are of the highest standard and the knowledgeable staff are so helpful. Don't let the grandeur of this hotel put you off staying here.

I visited London and decided to stay at the Dorchester in London. Pricey but well worth it as it is frequented by diplomats and nobility from around the world.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighborhood 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.
