I have stayed here before but mainly I'm a longstanding and regular user of the hotel's various dining and drinks venues. The Promenade was always great for pre and post dinner drinks but more recently it has disappointed, with awkward rules for non residents and no matter how busy or quiet, it always seems problematic to get a table without...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed April 13, 2017

No question this is one of the finer hotels of the world. Walk through the doors & you feel like royalty. Walk in the room & you know you are. I was here for a casino convention - my Japanese boss offered to either buy me a Louis Vuitton handbag or one night at the Dorchester for working so hard....

We love The Dorchester. We know we will sleep like logs, be treated to the most excellent service and eat and drink the finest food and wine. Coming to London and staying at the Dorchester is the icing on our cake. We know what to expect and are very happy to pay for it. We have never been let down.

We are a group of European Languages Teachers with the love for afternoon Tea and almost every week end we visit a different location to experience their Afternoon Tea.

Mighty expensive but you can justify it with the location across from the park and the staff they have on site. They didn't get everything right (the room service in particular) but the gentlemen at the front desk always made up for it and were classy about everything. The spa was as good as any I've been to. Beautiful rooms...

With it's regal allure and ideal location, The Dorchester certainly lives up to its iconic reputation the moment you arrive. Situated on Park Lane, minutes from Buckingham Palace and Kensington Gardens, and just across the street from Hyde Park, the Dorchester (for me) is a breathing space from standard luxury accommodations. My Studio Suite was elegant and insanely spacious. The...

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
