The Dorchester London hotel travel

You can’t put a price on impeccable attention. The Dorchester has maintained a masterful art of flawless service for decades, welcoming figures from literary, political, and arts circles in an effortless waltz since opening its doors in 1931. The ’30s witnessed the birth of the famous Foyles Literary Luncheons. Queen Elizabeth attended a dinner party at The Dorchester the day before her engagement was announced on July 10, 1947. Danny Kaye originally appeared in a cabaret at the hotel for £50 a week, and then became a lifelong regular guest. Elizabeth Taylor regularly occupied a suite (and lived here when she started shooting Cleopatra). Alfred Hitchcock viewed the hotel as ideal for a murder given the scope of burying bodies in Hyde Park across Park Lane. More recent guests have included Woody Allen, Barbara Streisand, Diana Ross, Glenn Close, Karl Lagerfeld, and Arnold Schwarzenegger.
