Just had the pleasure of staying in the Dorchester Hotel. The hotel as one would imagine is first class but most of all the staff make it special by being friendly but yet still remaining professional and took extra care of our 8 year old Daughter. We look forward to visiting again. Thank you to all the staff from the... More

They say you get what you pay for...and it's absolutely the case at The Dorchester. It's one of the most expensive options for hotels in London, but the service and accommodations are impeccable. Every person in the hotel greets you warmly and works to make your stay special - from the front desk to the restaurants to front driveway. Beautiful,... More

In the last 18 years of intense travelling and criss crossing the globe, I have stayed many hotels. From the functional airport hotels to hotels in back and beyond to the ultra luxury ones.

Loved the hotel! It's a large hotel that feels much more intimate and cozy. The staff are not just well trained, but remember your name after the initial introduction. Concierge helped us plan each day and hired tour guides that were marvelous. Made life so easy and fun for us. We have stayed in some of the best hotels in... More

So I have stayed at the Dorchester in the past, and the service was good then, this time our Two night was exceptional. We arrived from their sister property Le Meurice, for a two night stay. le Meurice was amazing, and I thought it would be near impossible to match the quality and service we received there. We arrived and... More

Last Thursday (August 20th, 2015), me and my son visited The Dorchester. It was his first time and he was very keen to hear the jazz band in the Promenade Bar; he was delighted as he enjoyed it thoroughly! I couldn't wish for a more welcome approach by the staff. They were most attentive and they surely made his evening... More

We were there because our friend gave us a voucher with one spa-champagne-night-breakfast. We spent more than a month to find a date to use it. We even suggest use it in more than 6 month away, but or they don't have the specific room or they don't know if the spa will be open. Finally, we manage a date.... More

This hotel is best described as "genteely shabby" and doesn't pretend to be otherwise. Yes, it's very expensive but then you get the full treatment. (Theatre tickets? No problem sir). It's a wonderful feeling to be staying at the best hotel on Park Lane. Avoid the dining room though. The food's good but incredibly expensive and not much of it... More

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.
