Edited by Travel Weekly

    The Dorchester has unveiled additional rooms and suites with a new butler program to enhance guest experience, marking another milestone in its renovation.

    The portfolio of the world’s foremost luxury hotels and residences, Dorchester Collection, has refurbished room interiors to continue its commitment to reinvent tradition. The Dorchester’s interiors, re-envisioned by interior design firm Pierre-Yves Rochon, seamlessly blend the 1930s glamour with modern amenity.

    The design draws inspiration from the hotel’s prized position in Mayfair with Hyde Park on its doorstep, and the hotel’s charming eccentricities are playfully reflected through a fresh blend of colours to enhance the heritage of the property.

    Designed to convey the sense of a luxurious private residence, The Dorchester’s 241 elegant rooms and suites represents a decrease from the original 250 keys, which was to account for more spacious accommodation. Guests can now choose from 19 elegant room types ranging from Superior, Deluxe and Executive Park View Rooms to Executive Junior Suites, signature Dorchester Suites, Hyde Park Suites and more.

    They appointed Sean Davoren as director of butlers in 2023, who has used his extensive experience in the hospitality industry to create a bespoke butler program. It provides a dedicated team of butlers, available to those in a Hyde Park Suite category and above, ensure that all requests are taken care of, creating a home away from home. Each member of the butler team undergoes a comprehensive training program for a minimum of three months before an additional month of shadowing and review by Davoren.

    “It is all about building confidence and allowing their personality to shine through without compromising on the level of service we provide,” Sean Davoren said.

    “We are the first people to greet the guest and the last ones in their rooms checking everything is as it should be before they arrive, we are instrumental in ensuring the guest has a flawless stay.”
