The Dorchester
Park Lane

Calling this spot a Grand Dame could equally refer to both the clientele and its status in the London hotel sphere. The classic legend, situated on Park Lane, also home to the Alain Ducasse and China Tang restaurants, provides familiarity and comfort to anyone who longs for luxury in that 80s go-go heyday kind of way. But this spot is in a transitional phase, both physically and sartorially. A new refurbishment of its rooms will bring a whole new wave of press and attention, and along with it, a whole new clientele. To that end, some things are geared towards those just discovering this spot. For example, lunch at China Tang, two dim sum baskets, a noodle dish and a glass of wine, beer or tea is just 15. But other things will remain that are part of their legend. High tea on The Promenade, their corridor of opulence, is a quintessential British must. We put the concierge to the test, with multiple tasks, and they rose to the occasion in perfection, delivering, without flinching in judgment. No small request was beneath their exquisite manners and service. The only negative thing we can say about this spot is that we hope that with the refreshing, they will see fit to let go of the 20 a night internet charge, outdated in a world of free Wi-Fi at most new five star establishments.
