A very British suite

A very British suite

Attempting to capture the eclectic nature of classic English style is, perhaps, a thankless task for any designer, but 22 new suites at The Dorchester appear to have delivered just that.

The Mayfair-based hotel is no stranger to classic style, and tasked interior designer Alexandra Champalimaud to come up to the new look for their sumptuous suites overlooking central London’s Hyde Park.

Each of the suites features an eclectic array of furnishings, inspired by a cosmopolitan collection of influences echoing the British fondness for filling homes with mementos from a lifetime of travel. Add to that classic items and furnishings from some of Britain’s best craftsmen, and it adds up to an all-new luxury look.

“I have always been fascinated by the way the English live in their homes and wanted to capture that certain quirkiness found in beautiful English properties, whilst building on the history and quintessentially British nature of The Dorchester,” said Champalimaud of the project. She has already made a splash with her interior design at the Dorchester’s sister property, Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles.

Items adorning the suites include signed prints from HRH the Prince of Wales, marble white tables, antique chairs, and even bed-linen embroidered with a design from the designer’s daughter-in-law Sandrine Champalimaud.

The suites are split into two types, eight one-bedroom “Park Suites” and 14 two-bedroom “Dorchester Suites” – all of them have stunning views over Hyde Park and deliver a classic English stay at this classic English hotel. Two-bedroom Dorchester Suites can be linked with a private lobby to create a third bedroom.

Park Suites from ?2,665, 2-bedroom Dorchester Suites from ?3,165, and 3-bedroom Dorchester Suite from ?4,295, all excluding VAT. For more information or to book visit www.thedorchester.com
