Judging venue

As a multiple Catey winner and a world-class hotel, The Dorchester provided an inspirational location for the 2012 Catey's judging sessions.

The Catey's recognise the standards of excellence in the hospitality industry upheld by its people.  This year Alain Ducasse at The Dorchester was awarded three Michelin stars, the only London hotel with this prestigious accolade. The Dorchester Spa was transformed in 2009 to create the most desirable and indulgent pampering destination in London and was recently named favourite UK Hotel Spa 2010 by Conde Nast Traveller readers.

The Dorchester occupies the most prestigious acre and a half of real estate in the world, in the heart of Mayfair overlooking the glorious green expanse of Hyde Park.

Prized for its spacious and beautifully designed rooms and suites, The Dorchester’s restaurants and bars – Alain Ducasse, China Tang, The Grill and The Promenade – also attract Londoners and the glitterati alike.
