The Dorchester Hotel

Ranked one of the world's best hotels, The Dorchester exudes unparalleled levels of service, luxury and style. Located opposite Hyde Park, and minutes from London's famous theatre and shopping districts, the Dorchester remains one of the world's most desirable places to stay.

The celebrated Dorchester has never looked so good. A total refurbishment to all rooms and suites is now complete, and more subtle changes continue to develop throughout the hotel, including new uniforms, new bathroom amenities, a state-of-the-art information technology system, a new website and new collateral. The Dorchester is a distinct address with unrivalled levels of quality, service and style.

For events & gatherings, The Dorchester has been the place to meet and celebrate since the 1930's. Each of the banqueting spaces differs enormously from the other in size, atmosphere, style and era.

The 500-seat legendary Ballroom has played host to state visits, high profile charity balls and weddings since the 1930's. The Splendid Wedgwood style Orchid Room, adjacent to the rich wood panelled Holford Room, can be adapted from an intimate cocktail party to a formal conference. Oliver Messel's Penthouse and Pavilion on the eighth floor is a listed suite, popular for weddings and birthdays. The fairy tail theme is carried through each of the annexes, leading onto a fountain terrace with spectacular views over London.

The Krug Room is The Dorchester's biggest kept secret - a magic gem of contemporary glass and red leather located in the master kitchens of the hotel. Menus are personally prepared by Executive Chef Henry Brosi.

Further to private events, The Dorchester is renowned for its four award winning restaurants. The Grill Room opened in 1931 and serves the best of British fare. The Promenade is located in the heart of the hotel and serves the Afternoon Tea, voted best in London by the British Tea Council. The Oriental serves the best of Cantonese Cuisine, and The Dorchester Bar remains one of the very few truly excellent bars in London.

Finally, The Dorchester Spa offers a wide range of luxury therapeutic and relaxing treatments, including the famous Eve Lom facial. The spa includes a sauna, steam and whirlpool baths, Charles Worthington's hair salon, a Barber Shop and fully equipped gym.
