Sheer elegance and wondrous symmetry superbly located in West London
Fastidious over details, this Flagship Hotel was designed with every comfort in mind and has pedigree. Dorsett Shepherds Bush is part of a fast growing Asian hotel chain (currently 22 hotels) with a second hotel in Aldgate, currently under construction.
Dorsett Shepherds Bush is innovative, stylish chic, delightful and inviting. Sheer contemporary elegance takes you into a different world. The stunning golden atrium in the lobby and interior balconies create a sense of space that instantly transport you to a major hub like Manhattan. But importantly, the rooms/suites continue this sense of sheer elegance and cosmopolitan indulgence. Dorsett Shepherds Bush has a sense of purpose, a sense of achievement, a reward for enjoying the benefits of hard work, but subtly steers away from feeling ostentatious.
Originally built in 1923 as a cinema, the Pavilion was voted the best London façade until it was badly damaged by a flying bomb in 1944. In 2014, re-developed into a four star hotel, the Grade Two listed façade and sides of the Pavilion were fortunately preserved.
The 317 rooms including 24 suites benefit from all modern conveniences including individually controlled air-conditioning, large flat screen Tvs, iPod docking stations, work desks, drink making facilities including a small fridge and complementary wi-fi. For guests in Executive rooms and above, the Dorsett Lounge serves as a place for work or relaxation, and provides free refreshments throughout the day.
