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

Reviewed 12 January 2017

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...

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.
