The Dorchester is immaculate and whilst a large hotel has an intimate feel. The rooms are large - even the standard rooms have plenty of space with large bathrooms. Bath showers vs more modern walk in showers. The quality of finishing and attention to detail is definitely top end as you would expect from a hotel with the pedigree of... More

From the minute you are greeted outside, to the check in desk, you will feel like a VIP. And yes, you will run into a lot of well known business folks,Famous Rock and Rollers lounging at the bar,all no nonchalantly soaking up the atmosphere.The average rooms are on the small side,but it really doesn't matter as they make up for...

The Dorchester has a wonderful entrance way with stunning flower arrangements just beyond reception that line the route to the various restaurants. We had booked a suite on a special offer so it very spacious with a separate seating area and large bedroom. All the usual facilities as you would expect. It was comfortable and would get 5 stars but... 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
