The Dorchester is a five-star luxury hotel on Park Lane and Deanery Street, London, to the east of Hyde Park. It is one of the world’s most prestigious and expensive hotels. The Dorchester opened in 1931, and still retains its 1930s furnishings and ambiance despite being modernized.
The Dorchester Hotel has 250 rooms and 49 suites. In the 1950s, theatrical designer Oliver Messel made a number of notable changes to the interior of the hotel, incorporating aspects of theatrical design into the hotel interior. Between 1988 and 1990, the hotel was completely renovated by Bob Lush of the Richmond Design Group at a cost of $100 million.
