Attended an event here this evening and I can't praise the hotel highly enough. Beautiful room that looked stunning, and despite having several hundred there, the food was exquisite. All served together and hot. The cheese soufflé was amazing. For anyone looking to book an event here - I thoroughly recommend. The photo doesn't do it justice.

My family and I were greeted by welcoming staff who looked after us. The afternoon tea was perfect especially as one member had a lot of dietary requirements and the Dorchester assisted without any issues. A wonderful suggestion for tea. We found the staff to be very friendly and helpful and would recommend the afternoon tea.

A first stay at the Dorchester for my wife and I for a special occasion. It was superb from beginning to end. The standard of the junior suite was fantastic, with a complimentary bottle of champagne waiting on ice. Great meal at Alain Ducasse and a very relaxing afternoon in the cocktail bar. A lovely place with very attentive service.

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.
