We had a private dining room for a party of 11 to celebrate a birthday on Saturday night. I organized this dinner from California and only arrived 15 minutes prior to our 7pm start time. Julia and Candice had everything spot on. Menus, name cards were perfect. The food was amazing which it needed to be because nothing at the... More

the hotel rooms are a maze to figure out at first and service quality at the front desk varies from really average to good at times. The concierge are definitely worth commending given their knowledge and ability to provide guests with timely advice. My only gripe is on the price and the seemingly lack of attention for meeting rooms being... More

Ive had several very enjoyable visits. The attention to detail from the rooms to the barber shop is quite extraordinary. The location and the hotel's restaurants and bars - exceptional. A home from home, and a great place to conduct business meetings too.

Used conference rooms here recently for business. Very average. The room had no AC, they never came to refill beverages, service was missing in the afternoon. We ordered food for lunch -- it was late, very expensive and not very good. This hotel is for the mega-rich who don't know any better. Skip this hotel.

We booked a deluxe room for the evening, but we were given a free upgrade to the Oliver Messel a £3700+ per night room, we were told that this was Elizabeth Taylor's favorite room to stay in whilst in London (which added to the enjoyment of receiving the free upgrade). The suite offered a 270 degree balcony and superb views... More

I love love love the Dorchester. I stayed here two times last December and both stays were excellent. The hotel is old world elegance and so close to everything in London. My specific London hotel experience is probably more limited but I travel a lot. The rooms are not particularly exceptional nor modern but beautifully appointed and extremely charming. I... More

The hotel in a word is stunning. When first entering the staff our absolutely wonderful, so helpful and friendly and as the two days... More

If you want a stuffy, rude and uptight hotel this is your best option. It's the first and last time I will ever stay here. The property is old and tired and so are their values of people. I have stayed at many better places in London for less and been treated better. They need a renovation of both employees... More
