The making of a star

It was while relaxing in the now-iconic pink bathroom that Elizabeth Taylor was told she had been offered the titular role of Cleopatra in 1959 – a call that would go on to secure her a record-breaking contract. Over the years this suite continued to witness many special moments for the star, and it’s an honour to share this wonderful history.

Clean lines and an expanse of glass. Marble and onyx shining like the many stars who have inhabited this space. Live above the rest.

Bathe like a star

The second bedroom’s pink marble bathroom gleams with old-school Hollywood glamour. This standout feature was personally requested by Elizabeth Taylor in the fifties, and remains an enduring part of our history.

The concierge team working at The Dorchester
I think the most rewarding advice we offer is the local insight that gets you beyond the tourist trail to the artisans and secrets. These might not be the famous landmarks, but they’ll be the real London.
