Editorial review:

The Dorchester is the choice of movie stars and those with the cash to afford it. It was opened for business in 1931 and has made a name for itself ever since. The lobby is possibly the most lavish in London and the enormous ballroom is just as spectacular as it once was years ago. The hotel offers 250 guestrooms, antique and individual furniture, working fireplaces and four-poster beds, evoking an English cottage feel.

                                      This hotel is pure class... when I entered the bar on my second night the bar man remembered my drink from the night before and my preference on nibbles..excellent service... Just wish these large hotels would put tea/ coffee in the room for convenience.

                                      No tea/coffee in bedroom.

                                      Nearly everything. The staff, the bar the rooms.

                                      Only one blanket in a double room. The lamp beside the bed to poor , you can´t read.

                                      All staff very welcoming, attentive and polite.

                                      As anticipated, a very expensive luxury hotel in an expensive part of London however the Continental breakfast was particularly overpriced.

                                      9.2

                                      Staff were knowledgeable,friendly and efficient. Room lovely and maintained excellently

                                      Tea making facility in room would be good to have.

                                      Reception desk service: first, the rooms were not ready around 2 pm (hotel check-in time is 3 pm) which was very unusual based on my wide enough experience around the world; second, there were reservations made in the same name and the hotel reservation manager called me oversees to double-check whether there was a real need in two rooms, they also charged the credit card for 2 rooms in advance, however, they provided the rooms on the different floors and were surprised by our requirement to provide them on the same floor; third, there was unbelievably long and complicated check-out, the lady at the reception desk who tried to manage really could not do a simple math and follow the regular logic. Not sure if I will choose this hotel ever again.

                                      The size and comfort of the room; the location

                                      The cost and quality of breakfast and of afternoon tea.

                                      The lobby and the restaurants are great

                                      the rooms need to be updated and until the renovation is completed, the hotel does not offer good value for the money.

                                      Our room was back of house with horrible view of court yard, and the fact there was no sauna or pool in the spa.

                                      Beautiful hotel, outstanding service. We will definitively choose to stay at the Dorchester when we go back to London.

                                      If you want a real British experience and the feeling of staying at a hotel with a "name" then this hotel works. The rooms are large, the bed is really comfortable, the tea time is great, the privacy due to overlooking hyde park is nice.

                                      I didn't feel it was good value for the money. For a hotel billed as world class service, it wasn'T. Not that we care, but we noticed that for all the times we were in and out of taxis during our stay, the doorman didn't even offer to open our door once. He was busy talking and socializing. Again, not a huge deal except when you call yourself world class service. The cleaning staff weren't thorough. If you are in London to shop, you are better off staying at the Mandarin or Four Seasons which is closer to the action. The hotel's theatre desk got us tickets to a play but they were waay overpriced. I wouldn't stay at this hotel again.Not that it was horrible, but just that it wasn't worth the money and the reputation.

                                      The service was outstanding. The staff were very friendly yet capable of being constantly professional- not a common combination in a hotel of this calibre. Rooms and facilities were an experience of their own.

                                      Wifi was available but at an additional cost- complimentary wifi would be nice considering the room rates.

                                      The promenade tearoom is great.

                                      The rooms are not so well fitted with what we have come to expect in such type of hotels, and a bit oldish in style without being fully Classic.
