Expensive hotel in Mayfair overlooking Hyde Park - but aren't they all? Probably best for high tea. The rooms are nice, but if you're in that price bracket, there are much better options.

I walked into The Dorchester around 3pm and, practically everywhere I looked, people were enjoying champagne and cream teas. The Dorchester is everything it’s hyped to be. Classy, glamorous and full of international jetsetters who ponce about here to be seen. The outside entrance is full of Rolls Royces, which makes the whole environment assume that you might be on the front of the next Hello magazine. Aside from the pomp and circumstance, The Dorchester is an all around exceptional hotel - with plenty of surprises. It's a great place to bring your laptop and work. Then there’s the cream teas promenade, the Alain Ducasse restaurant, the grand ballroom that has housed some of London’s most auspicious weddings, and the fantastically indulgent Spatisserie – featuring breakthrough spa treatments. I felt like I was in a royal palace complete with royal treatment.

Lovely hotel but owned by the Sultan of Brunei who is supporting legislation legalizing the stoning of gays and lesbians. Boycott Dorchester Hotels.

An art décor dazzler where extraordinary service, supreme comfort and modernity greatly synergize to provide one of the most outstanding accommodations at relatively good rates in London. The delicious Afternoon Tea served at the stunning promenade is one of the best in town. Each of its 194 guestrooms includes private lobbies, up-market toiletries, state-of-the-art entertainment equipment, and stunning Italian marble bathrooms on a strikingly beautiful British décor. Incredibly memorable gastronomy are the steaks at The Grill Restaurant, the finest contemporary French cuisine at the three Michelin starred Alain Ducasse, and the innovative Asian flavors at China Teng coupled with its endless live jazz and dramatic Shanghai 1920’s décor. Both, the fully equipped gym and Spa featuring a variety of modern instruments and treatments are inviting destinations onsite. The hotel has been home to high-profile guests such as Winston Churchill, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Elizabeth Taylor, Mariah Carey, Tom Cruise, Johnny Depp, Russell Crowe, Nicole Kidman, Michael Jackson, The Beatles, and Lady GaGa. Situated on Park Lane in the fashionable Mayfair district overlooking Hyde Park, the Dorchester is near major shopping areas including Knightsbridge, Bond, Oxford and Regent Streets, and a gateway to the British Museum, Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, the Victoria and Albert Museum, the London Eye, Tower of London and the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden.

The Dorchester in one of London's oldest and finest five star hotels. It was built the early nineteen thirties, and recently renovated. This hotel is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen.


Where the Fake Sheikh, an investigative reporter of the now defunct News of the World tabloid who used to pose as Arab royalty, conducted his sting operations against various celebrities and minor royals resulting in some pretty salacious front page splashes. The Dorchester has recently re-established its leadership at the very top end of the market, following extensive refurbishment of its 22 suites by designer Alexandra Champalimaud.


anyone who is anyone takes up residence here - a great spot for people watching and right in the heart of Park Lane and Hyde Park.


Stayed at the Dorchester last Wednesday night it was just gorgeous!
Lots of lovely little surprises in the room. So central, room with a view over Hyde Park, unbelievable service! they couldn't do enough for us!


Just saw it from the outside, didn't stay here but such a beautiful hotel.
