My friend and I visited The Dorchester today to enjoy their afternoon tea. We enjoy trying different places and have experienced many lovely afternoon teas over the last few years. This was by far the most exceptional we have ever had. From arriving at the hotel every single detail was perfect. The two gentlemen who served us could not have...

This is my second time staying at the Dorchester and both times have been perfect. I work in the events industry so very lucky that I get to experience such great hotels. We checked in on the 20th January for 1 night. The porters, concierge and receptionist couldn't be more lovely and welcoming which is always nice when first arriving...

Special visit before going on holiday to Mauritius. Great things? They gave us our room on early arrival.. the room is lovely however they do need to replace hairdryers. Shower temperature two extremes lava or ice! £7 for a Diet Coke is unnecessary... it's a mass market product. Could be better areas... The bar is ok - cocktails v good....

A deliberate visit to the Dorchester bar for drinks. After a late and long lunch, we went to the bar to get the best (in my opinion) expresso martinis in London. It is always great to see the amazing service that the hotel delivers.

Faultless. Cannot recommend highly enough. Completely out of my price range but I'm going to return for an overnight stay. Best chicken club sandwich and made to feel so welcome. Do not hesitate to book here the service is impeccable.

I have stayed here multiple times, all for business. The hotel is consistently good: excellent service, very good technology (wifi/tv/lighting), nicely appointed and large rooms and good room service. Not a ton of charm but really good always. Location is good in Mayfair and restaurants are nice but pricey. I have been upgraded many times, as well. Highly recommended

We booked a trip to London to celebrate our sister's 60th birthday, and as a special treat had afternoon tea at the Dorchester. This turned out to be the highlight of the visit. The service was brilliant, the staff could not have been more friendly, they went out of their way to make my sister feel special. Must also mention...

Unfortunately high end hotels in London are hit and miss whereby they're either ultra modern or disturbingly old fashioned, The Dorchester gets the balance just right. From reception, through to the public areas and the rooms there is an element of class that one would expect from Parklane. The architecture of the building is a little misleading as it's almost...

We stayed on December 31st for NYE. Check in at the hotel was seamless. The lady that checked me was very helpful and went over and above what was required in assisting me.

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
