The Dorchester Hotel is to the world of hotels what Chelsea is to football or the Brigade of Guards to the military. Less well known is that The Dorchester has an outstation hotel next door, the glamorous 45 Park Lane. This is a 45-room Art Deco extravaganza with one-to-one service from private ‘hosts’ instead of the usual concierge team, a reputation for style and supreme comfort, and a restaurant with a perpetual waiting list. You may remember the building as the Playboy Club, or then again, perhaps not.
The hotel has retained its club feel—and this is Manhattan rather than Mayfair, a style you can feel from the luxurious leather banquettes in the restaurant, Cut at 45 Park Lane, to the chef (celebrated New Yorker Wolfgang Puck), the beef and seafood menu, and Bar 45, a smart cocktail spot. Bedrooms, some of the largest in London, are mildly Art Deco, furnished with dark wood, suede and leather, the walls are lined with contemporary art, including Damien Hirst’s dazzling Psalm series, so you get the picture. Book a park-facing room or suite and you will have your own Mayfair pad—perfect for a special celebration.
