Had a meeting and then lunch. It was magnificent. Always drove past never been in. When I got a call for a meeting at the Dorchester I was excited. The service is out of this world. Everyone is polite both staff and customers. Every time I turn someone is smiling.

Just spent a few nights at the Dorchester at the recommendation of a friend. My first time there. Fantastic experience. My room was spacious decorated with the traditions of England. The room appointments were outstanding with everything being "crisp". The front desk team was nothing short of spectacular handling my early arrival with ease. The afternoon tea (one of my... More

Beautiful expensive luxury vehicles outside The Dorchester looked like an exotic car show. Just a hint of the clientelle of famous and rich that stay inside. Doorman very friendly let us take pictures with all the cars but dont touch, crowds milling outside.

I stayed at the Dorchester for one night and it was excellent. Firstly when we arrived for the check in (in the morning) we were lucky, our junior suite was available. Then I was expecting a very high quality (like le Plaza Athénée and le Meurice in Paris) and I was not disappointed: all the services were professional, the staff... More

I stayed here for one night . The room was beautiful. The bed was one of the best I've ever slept in. Breakfast was excellent. I booked theatre tickets through the theatre desk and it was as simple as pie. It took the stress away from me and the lady behind the desk was efficient and very knowledgable. The staff... More

As usual the service here is exceptional, and the position in Mayfair convenient (and it really needs to be as the room rates are on the steep side) but a few slight niggles - shower not great, fruit in room not replenished, TV in room not in the best of positions. At this level these minor annoyances shouldn't really occur.

Excellent rooms and service. The staff are so polite. The rooms are made up perfectly. The interior and exterior are so pretty. Great location. It's a short walk to almost all the best spots and also close to two underground tube lines. I enjoyed my stay here.

The hotel is in the best part of London -Mayfair- quite posh but full of nice restaurants and clubs. Still close from very young areas such as Soho and Marylebone. The room was perfect with a nice living room and view on the park. Very quiet too. The staff is discreet while being very helpful and professional. The price is... 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.

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.

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
