Meetings & events

The Dorchester is the place to meet and celebrate. Whether you desire a grand dinner or less formal reception, business meeting, conference or rewarding incentive, our flexible and experienced dedicated events managers will help you create a stunning bespoke event.

A London icon steeped in history, The Dorchester lends a special distinction to any event or celebration and has long been the favourite choice of celebrities, world leaders, royalty and high society. Famous guests include Elizabeth Taylor and Prince Philip, who celebrated his stag night on the eve of his wedding at the hotel.

Choose from 10 event rooms able to accommodate up to 1,000 guests, with varying design from the contemporary Crystal Suite to the classic art-deco ballroom. Chefs from our three restaurants will create a menu tailored to your specifications, whilst private dining is available at The Grill, China Tang and the Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse, or at the Media Room at 45 Park Lane just opposite.


The hotel’s convenient Mayfair location is near some of the city’s most popular attractions, including Buckingham Palace and Hyde Park. Heathrow Airport is 45 minutes away and private parking with direct hotel access is available, ensuring privacy. The Dorchester also offers state-of-the-art technology, including AV equipment and Wi-Fi access.
