Hotel Introduction
The Dorchester has reigned as the very definition of luxury in London hospitality circles for more than half a century, offering the ultimate in lavish accommodations and impeccable service to worldly travellers. Its view of Hyde Park only adds to the enviable list of features awaiting guests.

The hotel is not only an opulent home base for a stay in London; it also offers an incredible list of upscale amenities designed to pamper guests and make their visit as effortless as possible. The soon-to-be re-launched spa and fitness centre care for the body, while the astonishing dining and lounge offerings at the Dorchester are among the finest and most abundant in a London hotel.

The 244 rooms and suites each have incredible views over Hyde Park or the Dorchester’s own landscaped terraces. All of the rooms feature gorgeous décor and high-tech touches including e-butler services, multi-channel televisions (many with plasma screens), high-speed Internet access, Internet radio, and video and music on demand. The elegant bathrooms are done in an Art Deco style and feature Italian marble baths that are believed to be the deepest in the city.

Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester has fast become a premiere dining spot in London, offering refined French cuisine in an elegant atmosphere. The Grill sports a quintessentially British menu that earned the restaurant a Toptable Gold Award 2008. China Tang gives guests an authentic taste of Cantonese cuisine, while surrounding them in an exotic environment. At the heart of the hotel is the Promenade, a series of sophisticated spaces that culminate in a glorious leather bar at the end of the room. The Bar at The Dorchester features a rich interior and an exciting menu of classic and innovative cocktails.

The Dorchester Spa is undergoing a complete renovation that will reveal décor inspired by the glamorous 1930s. In just weeks, guests will be introduced to a grand new spa that includes nine tranquil treatment rooms (including two double suites), a manicure and pedicure suite, and an elegant deep relaxation room.

Hotel Features
The Krug Room is the original “chef’s table” located inside the hotel’s master kitchens and first opened in the 1940s. It allows guests an inside peek at the immense kitchens that are home to 100 chefs all working passionately on their art. This private dining room seats up to 12 diners, who then enjoy a specially designed menu ranging from a three-course lunch to a 10-course dinner.

A substantial line-up of nine function rooms provides the perfect backdrop for everything from wedding receptions to exhibits to conferences. The ballroom hosts up to 1,000 guests for a cocktail reception, while smaller venues like the elegant Crystal Suite and Orchid Room offer an ideal setting for intimate dinners and meetings. Celebrations, exhibits, corporate functions—all of these events have access to Wi-Fi and other high-tech gear, as well as a cadre of e-butlers and planners on hand to tend to all of the details.

In the heart of London's celebrated district of Mayfair on Park Lane, between Marble Arch and Hyde Park Corner, The Dorchester is only minutes away from world renowned Harrods, Harvey Nichols, Sloane Street and equally esteemed Bond Street. Strategically situated within easy access of many London attractions including the Royal Albert Hall, National Gallery, Buckingham Palace and London’s popular West End.
