Great in every aspect. Excellent rooms, excellent staff, great restaurants (all of them!). Stayed with family during the holidays, my kids felt very welcome at all times, the concierge team indicated the perfect tour of London (extremely busy time during New Years), and arranged all restaurant reservations we requested. There is no reason to stay anywhere else in London with... More

Myself and my husband currently live in London so we haven't actually stayed in this hotel. However, if we ever moved and then visited London, we would most definitely stay here. Four of us went into the Dorchester for a Christmas drink on the way to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park. As soon as you walk in it takes your... More

My husband treated me to a long weekend at The Dorchester for my birthday and what an amazing hotel. For the moment we arrived you can see that you are staying in a luxury establishment, staff are very polite and professional. We were booked in then escorted to our room and shown around. Our room was on the eight floor... More

Stayed at the Dorchester for the weekend just before Christmas from arrival to departure amazing service. Have stayed at other 5 star hotels in London but none could come close to this hotel in terms of luxury and quality. From the rooms, bars, restaurants and lounges everything was perfection, and the staff were at another level to other hotels we... More

Our local watering hole in London is the Promenade lounge at the " Dorchester"." The slick service and friendly staff, it's an oasis of calm when visiting London. Thanks to Kris the cocktail Barman for his usual friendly approach.

We've been to a lot of nice hotels throughout our travels and though The Dorchester isn't the most opulent or most grand, it does have some of the most fabulous food, service, and ambiance that we've experienced. The service is better than at The Mandarin, the food worthy enough to travel half way around the globe for, and the service... 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.
