A 1930's hotel of classic status, The Dorchester Hotel in London is ideally located next to two of the capital's best parks and offers a host of wonderful, not to mention, unique services and events that keep children firmly in mind.
A celebrated London classic, The Dorchester has iconic status as a leading luxury hotel in the capital. Stunningly elegant, defined by service that stands head and shoulders above many, and with an address wedged between both Green Park and Hyde Park, it has been wowing lovers of luxury since 1931. Retaining its 1930’s vibe of fixtures and sumptuous interiors, one would be forgiven for perceiving this to be a hotel relegated to adults, but The Dorchester is as welcoming of little ones as it is their parents and the inventive events they host for children are real testimony to just how family-friendly, (and gorgeously luxurious) this hotel really is.
For You -
Foodies and hedonists will adore the Dorchester for its incredible culinary offerings. The British menu at The Grill offers delectable home-grown produce cooked to perfection while Francophiles will adore the contemporary French cuisine at Alain Ducasse. If you get a babysitter and fancy partying on site you’ll love the live jazz at China Tang and, should you feel a tad worse for wear the next day (or simply fancy a pamper,) you’ll find all you ned at The Spa. An Art Deco sensation that was restored as recently as 2009, it boasts a “Spatisserie” and treatments using Aromatherapy Associates products.
For Them +
The Mad Hatters’ Tea Party that is held every Autumn half-term in the hotel’s Promenade is quickly becoming a firm favourite. Even if you don’t stay at The Dorchester, this makes a wonderful treat for your children. Inspired by Lewis Carroll’s Alice in Wonderland, and performed by The English National Ballet School, children enjoy dancers dressed as The Mad Hatter, the March Hare and even Alice herself, whilst tea includes a selection of Alice in Wonderland inspired cakes, scones and pastries. (Adults get a glass of champagne). Hotel guests can enjoy qualified babysitters or nannies arranged by the hotel’s concierge, as well as the arrangement of family-friendly activities around the capital. The interconnecting rooms are perfect for families and dining options consider both parents and little ones, alike.
