The Dorchester has announced it will commence a “comprehensive” renovation of the site, beginning in February 2022.
It revealed the renovation will be the “biggest” since 1989 and will start with the entrance to the hotel, the promenade, and the bar at the hotel, as well as two guest floors, with work set to be complete by September 2022.
Two of the “most renowned” names in design have been appointed to transform the hotel: Pierre-Yves Rochon is redesigning the hotel entrance, the promenade, and the new guest rooms and suites, while Martin Brudnizki Design Studio has been appointed to “recreate” the bar.
The hotel also said a “reinvigorated” concept for the rooftop restaurant is to be launched in spring 2022.
According to The Dorchester, it will remain open for guests throughout this time, and will continue to offer its afternoon tea served in the Orchid Room.
