The Dorchester, London

As one of the world’s most iconic hotels, The Dorchester is quite simply the place to be in London

Whether you are staying in one of the exquisite rooms and suites, unwinding in the spa, enjoying Michelin-starred cuisine or indulging in an award-winning afternoon tea, you will experience the epitome of timeless glamour.

The Dorchester, superbly located in the centre of London overlooking Hyde Park, is a favourite choice of celebrities, world leaders, royalty and high society. Spacious and elegant, each room features specially commissioned fabrics, antique furniture and exceedingly comfortable beds, while our white marble bathrooms are said to feature the deepest baths in London. 

Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester is the only UK hotel restaurant with three Michelin-stars, putting its creative French cuisine firmly in London’s culinary spotlight. Enjoy the finest pastries with your afternoon tea at The Promenade, British classics at The Grill or visit the hotspot that is China Tang.

At The Dorchester Spa, a beautifully designed oasis, indulge in signature spa treatments such as a Carol Joy London facial and an Aromatherapy Associates massage, then unwind in the glamorous Art Deco relaxation room before heading to The Spatisserie for a glass of champagne.
