From the moment we were welcomed at the airport, the Dorchester staff could not have been more accommodating. Upon checking in, we were kindly upgraded to a beautiful suite that overlooked the Park.

Going into the hotel it was very welcoming and offered comfortable surroundings. The indoor staff were very helpful and attentive, without being intrusive. The food was very fresh: an interesting selection of sandwiches, scones with preserves and cream and a selection of cakes from a cakestand - for each individual customer. There was a choice of drinks - champagnes, and...

Perfect start to our weekend in London - we had lunch in the Grill at the Dorchester last Saturday.

Staying in Mayfair

Neighbourhood 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
