This was my third visit to The Dorchester for afternoon tea and as always, it was a wonderfully elegant experience! We got off to a bit of a rocky start, as the lady on the desk wasn't very welcoming and we didn't like our table.Thankfully, the manager was on hand to correct the situation and after a short delay we...

One of the grande dames of the London hotel scene, previously the haunt of old money, the elite of UK plc, the occasional celebrity in shades, and even prosperous families on a special treat trip up to London for the weekend. Today the Dorchester resembles (spiritually) nothing so much as the London outpost of the Burj al-Arab. Of course the... More

Received a generous gift of one night's stay in this hotel from my parents. Stayed with my wife and couldn't fault the place. We arrived early and after a very warm and friendly welcome we were given our early check in with no fuss or delay. Our room was positively stunning - incredible bed, ultra-luxe bathroom and tasteful decor. The... 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.

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
