Vogue Reviews: The Dorchester, London

Dorchester Collection’s iconic hotel, The Dorchester, is situated on 53 Park Lane in Mayfair. It’s a meeting point between the city and its mythical history. The site of the hotel was initially part of the Manor of Hyde until Joseph Damer procured the land and a great structure was built in 1751. The building was named Dorchester House in 1792 after Damer became the Earl of Dorchester.

Upon arrival, an armada of classic luxury cars greets guests. The vehicles are available for touring excursions and luxury transfers – whether you’d prefer a 1964 Rolls-Royce Phantom V or a 1990 Daimler 4.2 DS420 Vanden Plas, The Dorchester will provide you with an option to travel in style. The hotel offers a range of rooms, starting from a deluxe queen room and the Dorchester Suite to the Harlequin Penthouse. All rooms feature graceful interiors with top-class amenities like Vispring beds, an aromatherapy bathroom range, and Apple TV upon request. The Harlequin Penthouse is the largest rooftop suite of the building and consists of a lounge area, two rooms, French entryway entrance on an isolated patio, butler service, two separate marble restrooms, a shoeshine to a royal standard on request, and fresh flowers.

The hotel recently reopened The Grill, with head chef Tom Booton and a brand-new Pudding Bar. Other restaurants include Alain Ducasse, The Promenade, China Tang, The Spatisserie, and Parcafe. The Dorchester also recently welcomed award-winning skin specialist Adeela Crown, whose methods in the field of non-surgical skincare have earned her a reputation for being the go-to facialist for VIPs around the world. Crown’s elite facials will only be available at The Dorchester Spa. The Adeela Crown Crowning Glowry is priced from £450.

The Dorchester isn’t just a hotel but also a historical landmark where every person working at the hotel has just one motto: to provide guests with the highest hospitality possible. From £595 per night.
