Winston Churchill and Cabinet Ministers Duff Cooper and Lord Halifax stayed in this hotel at this time. To his balcony, Churchill had a wall built for added privacy which remains to this day. On teh first floor, General Dwight D. Eisenhower took a suite. Dorchester diners from this period include Edith Sitwell, Harold Nicolson, T.S. Eliot and Cyril Connolly.

The Dorchester Spa

Reopened in '09, the Spa in Dorchester went through a total renovation bringing London pampering that was exclusive.

There are 9 sound proof spacious rooms including a sleek relaxation space, a manicure and pedicure suite and 2 double suites.
