There are 4 tube (underground) stations within half a mile (0.8 km). First opened on the 18th April 1931 the London Dorchester Hotel enjoys a superb location Park Lane in Mayfair opposite Hyde Park.
The hotel was the work of Sir Malcolm McAlpine and Sir Frances Towle who gave it the name of the grand house (Grosvenor House) that stood on the same spot before being demolished to make way for the hotel.
The hotel is almost in the centre of Park Lane some 450 yards from Hyde Park Corner. Park Lane is always busy being one of the major through roads in central London and is where most of the London tour buses park up and have stops along with many inter-city coaches. Interestingly Park Lane is one of a handful of central London roads that doesn't require payment of the congestion charge. However any road off of park Lane will still trigger the charge. Its part of the north-south through route down to Vauxhall Bridge. Mayfair of course is just about the most prestigious address in London where only the truly wealthy can afford to live. The area is a blend of high quality shopping at places such as Bond Street (jewellery and designer fashion), private residences and offices. Less than half a mile to the North is Marble Arch and Oxford Street. Europe's busiest and most densely shopping area Oxford Street is a must see for the London visitor. A similar distance to the south west is Knightsbridge, an upmarket shopping area and perhaps best known as the location of Harrods department store . Piccadilly runs from Hyde Park Corner all the way down to Piccadilly Circus which to all intents and purposes marks the centre of London. Just on the other side of Piccadilly is Green park which forms part of the grounds to Buckingham Place (0.6 miles) (home to the British Monarchy).
Other local attractions include Apsley House (0.2 miles), Wellington Arch (0.3 miles), Speakers Corner (0.4 miles), Michael Faraday Museum (0.5 miles), St James's Palace(0.7 miles) and the Wallace Collection (0.7 miles).
