My girlfriend and I stayed at the Dorchester for four days prior to embarking on a cruise leaving from Dover. When we arrived, our room was not quite ready, so the staff seated us in their breakfast tea area and gave us some complimentary snacks until the room was ready. All the staff were friendly and superb. Our morning waiter for breakfast, Micheal, was absolutely wonderful. He was dressed in tie and tails. His service was impeccable and he was extremely friendly- giving us a number of hints of things to do in London. The English breakfasts were excellent. The concierge was very helpful in obtaining tickets to plays and for recommendations for restaurants in the area.
The hotel is across the street from Hyde Park, which is delightful to stroll through.
Our room was very spacious for Europe and was decorated very nicely. The bathroom was marble and had a separate shower and tub.
The bar was also very nice. It was nicely decoarted and the staff were very friendly and competent. I had the probably the bestgin and tonic there that I have ever tasted.
Overall, it was a delightful stay and I would certainly go back the next time I am in London.
