I've stayed in many upscale hotels such as the Four Seasons, W Hotel, etc (we're from the US) and I have to say that this is by far my favorite hotel experience ever! With upscale hotels you can receive great service but what makes this place different is that service is excellent AND sincere / genuine. Everyone from the doorman,... More

This is a wonderful hotel for absolutely everything. The room we had was beautiful and spacious. The service was really exceptional from everyone, and that is an understatement. And then there is Alain Ducasse! What can I say!!!! Fortunately we are members of a SKI club (Spend Kids Inheritance) otherwise we could not have afforded it. But if you take... More

I cannot say that this is not a good hotel , but nevertheless one should expect something outstanding for the price and name of this hotel. There are many good hotels in London and this is one of many, a little stuck in the 80's in service and attitude and , although I have no problem with any nationality, it... More

Convenient location for our summer sales shopping. Newly renovated room was nice with very warm colour. The set up is elegant with Bang Olufsen TV. Bathroom amenity is specially made by Aromatherapy Associates, London which are very high quality and give a good feel and smell. Breakfast is in the promenade and we did enjoy our breakfast with very good... More

This is a very nice hotel and exudes a certain old-world London charm. My room was very well appointed, clean, and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. The concierge was great, arranging a number of requests and the front desk staff was courteous and professional. Meeting a friend at the Dorchester Bar was nice, as the staff was superb and the...

This hotel is beautiful, my room was like a palace and the breakfast I had delivered to my room was the best breakfast I've ever seen in my entire life! Fresh, delicious and plenty if it. Staff were helpful.

Well worth every penny spent and that didn't come cheap, but you get what you pay for and at the Dorchester I would say you get that extra bit more. Brilliant from the time you left your car to be parked right up to the time you left and received one of their lovely pens as a remembrance. All staff... More

My husband and I just spent a week at the Dorchester and it was wonderful. It is a quietly elegant place and everyone is ready to do anything to make you feel comfortable or help you. The 24 hour concierge was amazing and helped us time and again to do the things we wanted. We especially loved the breakfast and... More

We visited The Dorchester as part of birthday celebrations for my Wife's 60th. From beginning to end the Staff at The Dorchester treated us like "royalty". This Hotel and its staff deserve every accolade they are given. Anyone who is thinking of going there, dont hesitate. iTS NOT CHEAP but for a celebration its perfect.

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
