I stayed there for one night as the location was perfect for a Grosvenor House bash! It's hard to compare it like for like to somewhere like the Langham or the Berkeley because they all offer something different. At the Langham we were upgraded to a massive suite too. This place ouzes with class though and seems smaller than the... More

What can be said about The Dorchester that hasn't been said before ? Not much. I fully understand that one cannot satisfy all the people all the time ; but one thing that few reviewers have commented on is that any deficiencies which are brought to the attention of the hotel management are immediately rectified with superior satisfaction. This is... 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
