The Dorchester

London, England

Why You Will Love It

Since opening in 1931, The Dorchester has made a name as one of the most iconic hotels in London – and the world, and it has hosted some of history's most celebrated icons and great romances. Sitting proudly in the heart of Mayfair, this hotel’s reputation for white-glove service, exceptional cuisine, and elegant décor has withstood the test of time.

Defining Factor

The classic feel and dining. Though the hotel has been renovated and updated, The Dorchester still has a grand 1930s feel with Art Deco accents and luxurious touches. And if you want to soak up every detail of the hotel, you can – with five different restaurants, a vibrant bar, and a relaxing spa, you could stay at The Dorchester for the duration of your London vacation!

Don't Leave Without

Long before mixologists were a thing, legendary bartender Harry Craddock ran The Bar at The Dorchester and created the “Dorchester of London” cocktail in the 1930s. Stop by the bar and sample his creation or one of the other tempting cocktails.


The Dorchester boasts five fabulously distinct dining outlets, including gourmet fare at three Michelin-starred Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, Cantonese dishes at China Tang, and modern British cuisine at The Grill. For a cocktail, head to The Bar at The Dorchester where legendary bar manager Giuliano and his award-winning team are ready to shake and stir an old classic or a new creation. And don't miss afternoon tea at The Dorchester - it is a British institution!
