The Dorchester, a splendid English hotel, is located in upscale Mayfair close to Hyde Park. The hotel is truly representative of the British tradition offering the quintessence of refinement and elegance. Very well situated, the hotel is within walking distance of the exclusive Bond Street shopping area.
As soon as you enter the Dorchester you are overwhelmed by the most pleasant feeling that your stay will surely be enjoyable and successful. Once you have passed the door you are immediately introduced to the stunning pillared Promenade. This iconic room refurbished by Thierry Despont in 2005 is quite a sight with its gilt mouldings and marble columns. The sumptuous classic Promenade is a well-known rendez-vous in London at any time of the day. Sink in a deep soft sofa and enjoy the grand and yet cosy atmosphere. At one end of the Promenade discover the leather horseshoe-shaped bar and order food, drinks or wonderful cocktails.
At last abandoning this blissful state you go through long and elegant pastel corridors before reaching beautiful rooms decorated with an exquisite taste. Most of them feature a very English style with delicate floral motifs which are a delight to the eyes. The hotel also offers rare Art Deco rooms full of charm, with a fresh, modern, luxurious and a resolutely English touch in its approach to decoration. To make the most of your stay we recommend the suites which offer magnificent views of Hyde Park.
The one place to be for the Afternoon Tea is "La Promenade". Chic, very popular, and famous for its delicious French pastries which are a mixture of creativity, attention to detail and perfection. Do not miss the fabulous warm scones served with Devonshire clotted cream and homemade strawberry jam and the gorgeous finger sandwiches with white or brown bread and filled with smoked salmon, egg, cream cheese and cucumber. You can even have a glass of rose champagne. You can also opt for the "Dorchester High Tea" if you are planning an evening at the theatre. The restaurant "Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester" in its contemporary decor will introduce you to a whole culinary world using a wide range of flavours. At The Grill you will enjoy classic British dishes as well as more inventive creations surrounded by huge Highlanders and tartan upholstered seats. You can also choose the refined China Tang and plunge into China of the 20s and 30s to enjoy Cantonese food.
A dream holiday necessarily goes with well being. The Dorchester offers a wonderful Spa with various body and facial treatments and massages. The Spa, completely renovated in an Art Deco style with contemporary touches, is wonderful. After your treatments or massage do not miss the new trendy "Spatisserie" decorated with marble and glass where you can enjoy a "Rosé Champagne Tea," a memorable cheesecake, a delicious creme brulée and an assortment of bright coloured and succulent pastries.
Charm and elegance are the key assets that make this luxury hotel a unique and privileged place where the service is outstanding. You will never forget The Dorchester because every minute of your stay is punctuated with a smile.
