How to Get There
I almost don't want to tell you how wonderful I think this hotel is as then everyone will want to stay there and we might not get a room. However... I shall. Stayed here for my daughter's 16th... the staff could not have done more to make our stay perfect. They went out of their way to make sure we, especially my daughter, had the best time. Stayed in a beautiful room, so quiet, stunningly decorated, very comfortable indeed. Slept so well. Fantastic location. Scrumptious breakfast. 10/10 all round. Thank you Dorset Square Hotel. We will definitely be back.
Like the Knightsbride, this is a smaller, boutique style property in the Firmdale portfolio and as such does not have the facilities of the larger of their hotels but it also comes with a smaller price tag.
We paid 240£ for 1 night, room only which I think was reasonable:
- great location in lovely Marylebone
- wonderful staff
- efficient room service with good porridge
- nice room. We chose smallest category but room was a fair size. Bathroom small but perfectly designed with lots of space to put toiletries etc. Bed was a double , a tad too small for my taste but amazing mattress, pillows and beddings made up for it
I would stay again
We are long time visitors to the Haymarket hotel and on our most recent trip decided to branch out and try another Firmdale location and a slightly different part of town. Location wise Dorset Square provides easy access to Mayfair and the West End as long as you don't mind a walk -- however you should be aware that you're likely to be run off your feet as you exit on a weekday morning by the hordes of commuters passing the front door!
We stayed in two different rooms on the top floor overlooking the park and on the first floor at the back. The latter was slightly larger, mainly as the top floor rooms have sharply sloping ceilings which can make them seem closed in. Neither room is exactly spacious however and few of the rooms offer dual sink setups, despite the photos suggesting they do.
We also missed the extra services and facilities offered in the larger hotel. One of the ways Firmdale excels is making their larger hotels seem small and creative and offering rooms and public spaces with different setups and experiences. At the Dorset Square everything seems rather one note and samey. Overall despite the normal excellent front desk staff we probably won't be coming back to this particular location.
I stayed at this boutique hotel twice in August this year and both times, the rooms were beautifully decorated and very comfortable. The welcome gift and amenities, with the heavenly scented Kit Kemp products, personally made for the Firmdale group are wonderful. The first time, we had breakfast included and it was excellent but the second time, we did not and eating a la carte would have been quite expensive, so we went to some of the great breakfast places in the area. The Dorset Square Hotel is in an excellent location for wandering the streets of Marylebone with so many great restaurants and shops, Madam Taussauds and several hospitals nearby. It is also a a short distance to the West End and Oxford Street.
I love Firmdale Hotels and stayed in a few when they first opened but over the years feel they are becoming overpriced for what is received. The roooms are comfortable but no longer exceptional. When they first started they were
Pretty unique with the furnishings by Kit Hemp but I feel it has been over copied. I liked this hotel at first because it was affordable for a single person staying in London but no more. The breakfast however is utterly fabulous.
