How many hotel brands can claim that every property in their portfolio is iconic? The answer is very few – and the Dorchester Collection is first among their number. With only nine hotels located in a handful of the world’s premier cities, the Dorchester experience is by all regards an exclusive one.
The Luxury Travel Agency enjoys a fantastic partnership with the Dorchester Collection, with our clients receiving unmatched benefits at all their hotels. An upgrade at the time of booking is guaranteed at most properties, and if you’re booking a suite, you’ll receive a $100 credit every day. This is just the tip of the luxury iceberg – let’s check out what makes these hotels so special!
Dorchester Collection – England Prevails
The Dorchester story started in London, where its eponymous hotel has welcomed discerning guests since 1931. With its privileged position on Park Lane, The Dorchester maintains a classic elegance while offering all the modern comforts any traveler could want. A case in point: its brand-new rooftop restaurant & bar, which opened on April 20th to celebrate the hotel’s 90th anniversary. Diners will delight in the rotating culinary pop-ups, with delectable European menus providing a constant source of novel intrigue. With lounge areas, live bands, and Hyde Park sunsets, The Dorchester Rooftop is a new must-visit for London visitors and locals alike.
While its sister property 45 Park Lane is a mere stone’s throw away, the hotels are worlds apart in their stylistic approach. While The Dorchester is a beacon of classic luxury, 45 Park Lane puts a modern spin on British hospitality. A stay at the property is akin to being “a member at the most luxurious club in town”. With an appropriately exclusive 45 rooms and suites to select from, guests receive a personalized experience with every stay, complete with a personal assistant who attends to every whim.
If that’s not enough to sway you, a brand-new wellness space should do the trick! The Spa at 45 Park Lane opened in May, and at 10,000 square feet, there’s something for every request. The Roman-inspired space was designed by the renowned Jouin Manku team, with spa treatments that utilize Valmont and Aromatherapy Associates products. A 20-metre pool – the longest on Park Lane – is the cherry on top. If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of staying at 45 Park Lane, now’s the time to experience this special property.
Of course, England is much more than the urban jungle of London. A stay in the English countryside offers a picturesque escape from the bustle of the city, and nowhere captures this charm like Coworth Park. While only an hour’s drive from central London, this hotel is a proper rural retreat for guests who enjoy slowing down amongst the idyllic Berkshire scenery. A sprawling 240 acres will have you feeling like Coworth Park is your very own country home! Imagine a picnic amongst the poppies and cornflowers in the summer meadow, or a game of polo on a professional field – it doesn’t get more quintessentially English than this.
A new addition to Coworth Park provides a spectacular option for those seeking a truly exclusive experience. North Lodge is a standalone three-bedroom cottage on the outskirts of the grounds. Complete with a private driveway, garden, and state-of-the-art kitchen, this is the home away from home you’ve always dreamt of. Have a dedicated chef prepare an exquisite in-house meal for you while you unwind nearby at The Spa, or enjoy a traditional Afternoon Tea. When you want the best of the English countryside, Coworth Park is the address to remember.
Dorchester Collection – Made in America
The Dorchester Collection only has two properties in the USA – both in the vaunted Beverly Hills area – so there’s world-class attention to detail provided at each one. The Beverly Hills Hotel is nothing less than a Hollywood icon. The ‘Pink Palace’ has played host to the biggest celebrities from around the world for over a century, offering glamour and privacy in equal measure. A red-carpet arrival sets the tone, where every detail of your stay has you feeling like a movie star.
Rooms and suites blend Hollywood history and contemporary style in equal measure, while secluded bungalows offer a hideaway experience sought after by the famous power players who adore this hotel above all others. Book a stay in Bungalow 1, the preferred choice of Marilyn Monroe, or perhaps Bungalow 3, inspired by the infamous billionaire Howard Hughes who spent millions while on property. Even a simple afternoon by the pool becomes an iconic experience; after all, The Beatles once hosted a private pool party here for a reason! If you love the glitz and glamour of Hollywood, there’s no better pick than The Beverly Hills Hotel.
A few miles away, perched in the hills, is the elegant Hotel Bel-Air. With its privileged position overlooking the surrounding homes and canyons, this property is a true urban oasis for its treasured guests. The style is very much a residential one, with comfortable touches at every turn to make you feel at home. We love the Canyon Studios and Suites, with patios complete with private pools and outdoor fireplaces for a fabulous night in the Hollywood hills. A number of signature suites offer an even more exclusive experience, each individually designed and decorated to provide a one-of-a-kind stay. Enjoy a dazzling lunch in a private outdoor alcove at the Wolfgang Puck restaurant, and when evening approaches, head over to the Bar & Lounge for an atmosphere of unmatched cinematic glamour. No matter which Dorchester property you choose, your California dreams are guaranteed to come to life.
The Dorchester Collection also includes two stunning hotels in Paris, two in Italy (Rome and Milan), and a much-anticipated Dubai opening in Winter 2022. At each of these world-class properties, you’ll receive an array of incredible benefits and amenities, including those automatic room upgrades, plenty of hotel credits, VIP service, and much more! All for booking with The Luxury Travel Agency. Contact us today to plan your stay with the Dorchester Collection!
