Weekend at the Dorchester
What is the common feature between Arnold Schwarzenegger, Prince Philip, Marlene Dietrich, Meg Ryan, Tom Cruise and Dwight D. Eisenhower ? The Dorchester Hotel in London ! Between Piccadilly Circus and Kensington, at the heart of Mayfair, facing Hyde Park and Green Park, this genuine traditional palace is proud of its classicism mixed with modern touches. Moreover, it welcomes a new and famous Chef, Alain Ducasse, with his restaurant "Alain Ducasse At The Dorchester".
A Palace spirit
Very few hotels which have preserved their Palace spirit like the Dorchester remain today. Genuine institution from 1931, it advanced over the decades, keeping its own seduction codes, mixing glamour and sophistication from the 50's, far away from the 21st Century minimalist and clear design. Cosy with its King size beds and soft carpets, luxurious with its design mainly made of marble and oak furniture, it offers a top of the range service. Here, the pillow's perfume is a call to sweet nights.
Lunch, Tea Time and Diner
You can have your breakfast at the Promenade, in a rococo and baroque atmosphere, served by waiters dressed in tails. With its theatrical design, this gallery reflects the cosy spirit of the hotel with its wealth of colorful silk draped on the walls, its shimmering fabrics and soft cushions on Chesterfield armchairs as well as marble pillars. The High-Tea also is a great moment, served in the Victorian traditions. For a friendly lunch, go straight to the Grill Room with its modern British gastronomy and, for a gastronomic diner, go to Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, a contemporary restaurant by Patrick Jouin.
