Excitement continues to build around the re-opening of Firmdale’s Dorset Square Hotel on 18th June, just in time for the Olympics. The hotel is in a Regency townhouse near Baker Street tube, along the road from the Landmark Hotel and Madame Tussauds. It was the first ever Firmdale hotel and opened in 1985. The hotel was then sold in 2002, however Firmdale recently bought the property back and gave it a full refurbishment.
There are just 38 rooms in this boutique hotel and guests can expect the usual Firmdale style decor with bold colours and flowery textiles, bespoke and one-off pieces and original art collected from around the world. Each room has been individually designed and the majority will have views over the private gardens, which used to be the old Lords cricket ground. The hotel offers four type of rooms; single, superior, luxury and deluxe, each kitted out with everything you would expect from a luxury hotel including an iPod dock, TV and WiFi (we suspect not free – much like other Firmdale hotels like The Haymarket Hotel or The Soho Hotel but we can only dream!).

The hotel will also have a bar and restaurant, the Potting Shed, serving breakfast, lunch, dinner along with afternoon tea and cocktails. For a more relaxed dining experience the Drawing Room with high ceilings, a fireplace and views over the garden square, will be open throughout the day.
The Dorset Square Hotel is the seventh Firmdale hotel in London. Other locations include Haymarket, Soho, Covent Garden, Charlotte Street, Knightsbridge and South Kensington. Rooms start from £150 per night and it looks like there are still rooms left for the Olympics although there are no prices online for that period so don’t hold out for that rate!
