There are very few decent hotels in West London. The Dorsett Hotel fills a huge gap, providing business and leisure guests with a comfortable and luxurious place to stay in Shepherd’s Bush. Ideally located just minutes from Westfield and the central line tube, this venue is perfect for easy shopping, or popping into town.
We were in room 329, a lovely suite on the third floor of the hotel. The room was decorated in lavish shades of gold and cream, which hints to the brand’s Asian identity. The suite had plenty of space with a large indulgent bed, a cosy living area and a luxe bathroom.
In the evening the Dorsett hosted a Lucy Choi event, where guests could admire and try on Lucy’s exquisite shoes. As the niece of heels-god Jimmy Choo, shoe designing is in her genes, and the beautiful array certainly showcased her talent. Lucy’s collection has a range of shoes from pretty flats to killer stilettos. I was amazed to see how flattering and comfortable they were to wear, and the prices are reasonable too.
Exhausted and hungry after an evening of shoe fittings we picked a dish from the in-room dining. The pea and parmesan risotto was simple and delicious, topped with charred asparagus and elegant parmesan crisps. The menu also features classic dishes like Beef Burger and Pan-fried Salmon.
The next morning I couldn’t resist breakfast in bed. The efficient and friendly staff delivered a feast of pastries, fruit and even a cooked full English. There is something completely decadent about enjoying room service in a London hotel suite, and the Dorsett did not disappoint.
