Each of the rooms and suites spacious and elegantly decorated, with specially commissioned fabrics, antique furniture and beds and boasting white marble bathrooms featuring the deepest baths in London, a night’s stay becomes a dreamy experience.

You’re spoiled for choice once outside your room as well, where you can enjoy creative French cuisine at Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester, the only UK hotel restaurant with three Michelin-stars, or or sample British classics at The Grill or some of the best and most authentic Cantonese food outside China at China Tang. At The Promenade you can take time out of your day to enjoy afternoon tea and delicious pastries.

Bathed in natural daylight coming through two sets of French doors opening onto the terrace, The Harlequin is the very room that Elizabeth Taylor received the news of her record-breaking, multi-million pound deal to star in the epic Cleopatra, so it is no surprise here you can immerse yourself in old school Hollywood glamour that still prevails.

While the dining room features a bespoke crystal chandelier by Metalarté, reminiscent of the fabled diamond collection of Ms Taylor, the opulent master bathroom features black Nero Marquina floors with under-floor heating, walls of book-matched white Arabescato Oro marble slabs; white onyx vanities and a large freestanding bath with polished chrome contemporary tap ware and a state-of-the-art shower toilet by Geberit.
