I have stayed at The Dorchester on a number of occasions and despite current negative media attention, it has never failed to live up to expectations and irrespective of who owns it, the staff are always very polite and attentive. We booked for a major birthday with friends and were pleasantly surprised that having asked for adjoining rooms, that we...

Special World class 5 star experience. Excellent staff, extremely professional.Nothing seemed to be a problem.Smiling, happy and genuine staff. Even the gentleman cleaning the brass was doing so with a smile. Breakfast delivered to the room top class. Room old fashioned chintzy decor which somehow added to the charm. Can`t wait to return.

We stayed in the Dorchester from the 3rd to 6th May for a special trip and it was a wonderful experience. The room was tranquil and beautifully appointed, all the staff were lovely, they gave us an anniversary cake and fruit in our room, most of the food was delicious. Some small gripes would be that sometimes we didn't feel...

This hotel is simply a dream. The staff are great, the rooms fantastic and the location excellent. This is probably one of the best, if not the best hotels in London. It is a real decadence.

A perfect choice for a week end in London. Great location, refined restaurants. Standard rooms are nicely decorated. The only bad comment would be regarding the noise during our second night as there was a wedding celebration.

London has an incredible selection of very high quality hotels.

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
