A week-end overlooking Hyde Park at The Dorchester, London

It
is a known fact that some hotels are intimately linked to the cities where they
are located, becoming must-see landmarks over time. Landmarks where you can
feel and catch the full spirit of the city, in one single place.

Like
the other properties of The Dorchester Collection (The Plaza Athénée in Paris
or the Beverly Hills Hotel in Los Angeles), The Dorchester in London is one of
those.

The
ultimate Afternoon Tea destination for visitors, guests and many Londoners
alike, their award-winning Afternoon Tea has been served with perfection since
the first day The Dorchester opened in 1931…
As
I wrote in this article, I try to enjoy this quintessentially British habit
at The Dorchester everytime I visit the city.

On my last
visit to London, I had the chance to take the experience much further, and
experience one of those unique, treasured « London moments » only The
Dorchester could offer in such an exquisite fashion.
What made my
stay so special ? Staying in one of the hotel’s Park Suites, characterised by their splendid wood-panelled sitting
rooms full of oh so British details and furniture, and distinct dining area
providing an atmosphere of quality and tradition.

As
usual with The Dorchester Collection hotels, the bedroom had to be one of my
favourite parts, with the fairytale bed I slept and woke up in… On my
birthday !
To
make my special day even more unforgettable, the ensuite marble bathroom with
its spectacular bathtub was the cherry on the cake – not to mention the spacious
guest bathroom I had for convenience.
