Situated on the site of Thomas Lord's first cricket ground, the Dorset Square Hotel is the epitome of London chic, in the heart of Marylebone. After undergoing extensive refurbishment, the hotel reopened in June 2012, outfitted in hotelier-and-designer Kit Kemp's signature style: bold, eclectic, and unexpected. Quirky details add an element of fun, like discreet cricket references that allude to the property's original use.

In the afternoon, the excellent Champagne afternoon tea is a classic affair featuring delicate sweets and sandwiches paired with tea—and bubbly.
