We had a wonderful one night stay at The Dorchester last weekend. My husband had booked it as a surprise for our anniversary and we were upgraded on arrival, which was nice. In our room there was complimentary champagne and chocolate-dipped strawberries, along with a card wishing us a Happy Anniversary from the manager.
We left the freebies and went down to have afternoon tea, which my husband had booked. The service was excellent, and just before we left we were presented with a lovely cake, again wishing us a Happy Anniversary. A bonus for us was spotting Russell Crowe striding through the hotel lobby!
We have stayed at The Dorchester before (we got married there) and have always found the bedrooms spacious (for London) and well equipped. The best thing about The Dorchester is the baths! They are wonderfully deep and the water pressure means they fill very quickly.
Making use of the information that the hotel gives you we took a running route map with us on a jog around Hyde Park the next morning, which was fun. We followed this up with a hearty breakfast in The Promenade. In addition to the full English they also do a health breakfast which is absolutely great…the carrot muffins are really, really good.
Another wonderful stay at The Dorchester, where we were spoilt rotten in spite of being mere proles staying in the cheapest room available.
