Most beautiful luxury hotel on Park Lane.
Reviewed 4 days ago

Most beauutiful luxury hotel on Park Lane. A haven of tranquility. I must first say that we only fulfilled our reservation after the Sultan -hotels owner- reversed his decision on the new policy of stoning gay men to death in Brunei !! Of course this does not reflect the the beliefs and attitudes of the staff here but you cannot line the pockets of a man who was to get his minions to stone gay men to death !! London is not short of luxury hotels and we all have a choice. Enough said !!
The hotel is just beautiful. Impressive entrance and seamless check in. Public rooms and bedrooms are extremely well appointed and have the wow factor but in an understated way. Classical and elegant. Afternoon tea here is a memorable event and dining in the Grill was a very relaxed experience- food and service was off the scale in terms of quality and enjoyment. The flowers displays in hotel are worthy of any Embassy or Palace ! My favourite London hotel and only the cost prevents me from staying here more frequently now that I have retired to Malaga ! We will be back- hopefully in December - when the Christmas decorations will be amazing, once more ! My final comment has to be a regarding the staff who were just wonderful at every point of interaction. Attentive but not overbearing. True professionals in the hospitality sector. Greatly appreciated. Anyone can spend millions to create and furnish a luxury hotel but it is the staff who make the world of difference.

One day stay at a fine hotel
Reviewed 5 days ago

My wife and I were able to stay at the Hotel Dorchester on 12 June 2019 after a Barcelona to Tilbury, (London) cruise. It was a pleasure to stay at this fine establishment in such an historic area of London. Regretfully, we only had one evening to take in this wonderful hotel before our flight home early the next morning. What we did see and experience was top level service, food and lodging.

The greeting at the door by the very professional staff continued through the check in, breakfast service and escort to our room. The beautiful room, 201, was a pleasure to behold with views from multiple corners. This is a top notch establishment with a staff that compliments the English traditions so very well.

When we were seated at our table a very friendly waiter came and introduced himself when the sandwiches arrived he explained what each one contained they were absolutely delicious next to arrive were scones with 2 types of jam which was lovely then cakes arrived after we had eaten the waiter brought me s small cake with a candle. I would like to thank all at the Dorchester for making my birthday so very special

London Elegance & Hospitality At It's Best
Reviewed 1 week ago

Its been years since I stayed at The Dorchester but it was nothing short of sensational. From check-in to departure I couldn't fault the service, care & attention of everyone in this hotel.

There was a peaceful calm about the hotel and indeed a genuine care towards making our stay everything a 5 star experience should be in London.

I have read all the media about the issues surrounding the ownership of The Dorchester but lets not forget the staff & people who work in these hotels and their commitment to hospitality and service.... they are the people who make these hotels run from the General Manager to the Kitchen Porters this is a hotel that cares about its guests and not its ownership.

Loved and will most definitely be back!

Bravo Dorchester your one of the greats!

Stolen or taken by mistake? regardless horrible service
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

I was really looking forward to my stay at the Dorchester but it turned out to be really disappointing. I found my check in and overall service underwhelming but average. However my trip took a turn for the worse when upon packing up my bags I realized that one of my white dress shirts was missing. I addressed this while checking out and was met with ambivalence and an overall lack of urgency on part of the check out staff. It was almost as if this kind of theft was normal to them and didn't surprise them. During my flight back home I talked it over with my colleague and we both assumed that I would receive an email the minute we landed on Friday the 24th addressing my missing shirt. I didn't receive any such email and upon getting home realized a t-shirt was also missing. I wasn't till I sent an email on the 25th did the hotel respond to me. I made sure to never accuse anybody but was clear that only hotel staff and my colleague had been in my room, btw they had a means to check on this since they had a camera fairly close to my room. Regardless the Dorchester thought it reasonable to tell me that my best option was to contact the Met police to file a claim of theft all the way from New York city. Not sure about the rest of you but when I book a 5 star hotel, not to mention for 5 days, this is not the kind of service I expect. At the end of the day whether my items where taken or mistakenly removed what I found really shocking was the hotels response and overall tone. They clearly don't care and all I can say is buyer beware.
