A Day in the UK

This week, the Eurostar was the 'slow train' to London. Normally, Paris to London takes 2 1/4 hours, but the recent snows here have freaked Europeans out so much that they required the train to slow down, inciting passengers' groans upon the announcement. Thus, our arrival concurred with our dinner reservations with no time to spare.

Day 6 - Greener pastures.

    Historical Traveler Reviews The Dorchester London

    A magical experience

    from

    Having stayed on several occasions during the past year at The Dorchester Hotel in London, and also at their sister hotel in Los Angeles California,The Beverley Hills, I would most certainly recommend The Dorchester Hotel to overseas business guests and tourist visitors alike.

    Close to perfection.

    from

    Difficult to detect imperfections at this illustrious hotel . Rooms, decor, common areas, service, manners and style, reception, reservations, bars, location and feeling to be at the centre of everything : all spectacular according to all standards.

    Expensive, but who cares ? You'll have just a few euros or greenbacks less in your bank account in exchange of a lovely ,lost-lasting memory.

    Pity for that American stationing in the hall in fitness shorts(little could be done, I presume) and for the mildly haughty doormen ostensibly craving for tipping. No other possible "complaints" after four stays.

    You'll have plenty of celebrities-watching, if you wish so. But understated customers will find their space and satisfaction in equal manner.

    Thanks debbie for showing us the real london

    from

    there is no more i can add about this hotel it is amazing! we saw all the tourist sights of london.then we found a tour operator who took us on all the sights that londoners do ie, a eastend market,pie mash and stewed ells.(it looks horrific but tastes good) a seaside resort, we went to the cockel sheds at leigh on sea and had a pint of guiness? thay showed us a piece of london that no other tour company was able they will take you anywere you want cafes resturants bars. thay were priced at £80 -£100 per day thay were really good with the kids what ever you want or want to go thay will arrange it for you. i know thay will not mind if i give the email address for you to contact them at deb.clarke3@ntlworld.com thay made this trip for us and we would advise you to do the same as us

    A very special hotel indeed

    from

    We stayed here for two days earlier this year to both celebrate our wedding anniversary and to see a concert that was being held at the Royal Albert Hall.

    Top Quality, top service

    from

    We stayed at the Dorchester for a friends wedding in May 2004. We travel down to London semi-regularly and usually pay £1/200 per night for a room, so even the deal of £350 I'd negotiated over the web seemed like a lot for just another 5 star hotel.

    Luxury abounds

    from

    May 21 - 24, 2004. The Dorchester Hotel is just lovely. The hotel is extremely luxurious, elegant and quiet and the staff could not have been friendlier. The food in The Grill Room (dinner) was excellent. The hotel is perfectly maintained and in a quiet and charming section of London. After leaving the hustle and bustle of Picadilly it was nice to return to the quiet atmosphere at the Dorchester. For Americans it is very expensive (as is all of London). I would not hesitate to recommend this as one of the nicest hotels I have ever visited.

    The Dorchester Hotel, London, 'The Leading Hotels of the World'

    from

    Our stay at The Dorchester was wonderful. No wonder it ranks as one of "The Leading Hotels of the World". Beautiful room, excellent dining, model service. Though well high end, the Dorchester maintains a type of warmth and comfort not found at the few hotels of this level. We did consider the overall pricing reasonable, as compared to pricing in London, and found that for our money we were well taken care of. Without question, we'll return to The Dorchester.

    Experience Royal Treatment !

    from

    If you want 5 star quality go elsewhere, because this is 6 star quality! The charm begins as a doorman in tails with a top hat greets you. The hotel is luxurious. Hallways are clean and there are no musty odors. The lobby dining area is the spot for the elite to conduct business. Celebrities of the world stay here. The rooms are first class and clean. Huge marble bathroom. Separate tub, shower & bidet. Internet access in the room, but too expensive for me. I went up to Oxford St. to an Internet café for a fraction of the price. Phone calls from the room cost too much for me as well, so I went to the very private phone booths in the lobby to use my calling card. Best to buy your calling card in London. My US calling card didnt work there. Telephoned the front desk to have a problem with a sink draining corrected and in less than 1 minute an engineer was knocking at the door and fixed it! The staff was friendly and very helpful. The hotel food was of excellent quality. There was always security visible so we felt safe. Located across from beautiful Hyde Park. Cabs are everywhere or to save money you can get an all day pass for the underground or tube. Staying at the Dorchester will make you feel like youre a member of the Royal Family. Only stay here if you want the very best!

    Luxurious escapism

    from

    My husband and I stayed here in Spetember last year. I was 8 months pregnant at the time, and the staff, apart from the chap on reception were very thoughtful and attentive. I had to have indigestion tablets brought to the room at midnight, they arrived within 3 minutes on a silver tray! The room wasn't huge and had no view, but it was beautiful, and the bathroom was out of this world. Marble everywhere, the deepest most enormous baths and a power shower that pummelled you like a Russian shotputter (in a good way!) Breakfast was fantastic, the best porridge I've ever tasted and wonderful service.Now, the only sour note in the whole review. The man on reception was extreeeeeemly unhelpful, unfriendly and tried to get us to pay more for the room than was advertised on their web site. Perhaps we looked as though we couldn't afford to be there, I don't know, but he made us feel very awkward. When you're paying £350 for b&b, you don't expect that.But, the upshot is that I can't wait to get back there....when I win the lottery!

    Amazing

    from

    Amazing. I was lucky to stay here for two nights for business recently. The rooms are impeccable. The staff is sincerely attentive without being snobby or stuffy. The entire place shines and makes you feel like a million bucks every time you walk in or out the door.
