During the course of my career, I have found that it is best to work with specialists who know about a specific field. Tapping into expert advice is often the very best way to get what you want. This is particularly true if you do not know much a given subject. It is good to work with someone who may have made it their life’s work. This was the approach I took when I was planning my trip to London. I’ve never been there before and I wanted help from someone who had. I knew that it was imperative to get such help to able to find the best possible London vacation rentals for my trip there.
So when I found London Escape I was so delighted. They know London the way I know my work space. They were able to help me think carefully about the kind of space that would be just right for my stay when I was going to be there. This was not easy as I wasn’t quite sure where I wanted to stay. I had a in mind a vague trip but I wasn’t entirely sure about the kind of details that would be just right for my stay. When I worked with them, it helped me get the kind of expert advice that was right for me and allowed me to see London through the eyes of people who know a lot about the entire city including many other parts of the outlying areas as well as the city itself.
I recommend that anyone who is going to stay here really work with them as they are able to give them what they want and need. Working with an expert can help anyone find the right space for their needs and be assured of having a space that is totally right for their needs. This let me have one of the best vacations I’ve ever had during my entire life. It also let me discover the kind of London that I’ve always dreamed of seeing, a London I was able to truly enjoy.
The Dorchester Collection is a 10 hotel chain spread throughout the world. The majority of the hotels are located in Europe, but there are a few situated in the United States. The collection started in 1987, when Hassanal Bolkiah, the Sultan of Brunei, purchased the Dorchester Hotel and later the Beverly Hills Hotel. Eventually, the sultan transferred ownership of the hotels to his Brunei Investment Agency four years later, and since then the collection has grown. While The Dorchester Collection has owned more than the current collection, 10 right now sit inside of the collection as it is seen today.
The Dorchester is located in London, England and marked the first hotel to be acquired by the current Dorchester Collection. They have the links to all of them on their official Facebook page. The collection also owns two other hotels located in England, including 45 Park Lane and Coworth Park. 45 Park Lane is actually not only one of the newer hotels in the collection, as it was purchased in 2011, but it is the smallest as it has only 45 rooms in the boutique hotel. Coworth Park is located outside of London in the city of Ascot, Berkshire.
Regarding the rest of Europe, The Dorchester Collection has two hotels in both France and Italy. Both Le Meurice and The Plaza Athenee are located in Paris and both were purchased in 1997. As for the two in Italy, both are newer to The Dorchester Collection, and Hotel Eden, located in Rome, is actually the newest addition to the collection with its purchase in 2013. Hotel Principe di Savia is located in Milan and has been in the collection since 2003.
Switzerland is the only other European nation to have a hotel in the collection. This is Le Richemond, located in Geneva. The Dorchester Collection acquired the hotel in 2011, and it is actually the oldest hotel in Geneva.
Outside of Europe there are two hotels in The United States. The Beverly Hills Hotel is one of the oldest hotels owned by The Dorchester Collection and then there is Hotel Bel-Air in Los Angeles. Outside of The Dorchester and 45 Park Lane, these two hotels are in the closest proximity to one another.
Outside of the 10 hotels, the majority of the locations also have restaurants inside of the facility, and there are also some spa services provided in different hotels found in The Dorchester Collection as well. The hotel chain is always looking for new additions as well.
