The quintessential British experiencePosted Mar 4, 2014
Pros: My room was lovely, as were the other areas of the hotel. I loved Dukes' Bar and my world-class martini. The food was delicious.
Cons: The only thing I would change is the air filtering in the Drawing Room. Cigar smoke wafts in from the Cognac and Cigar garden.
Location: Very walkable section of the city. Buckingham Palace is a stone's throw, as is shopping in Piccadilly and Oxford Street. Perfectly situated.
My stay was divine. The hotel's "Duchess Program" - for single female travelers - made me feel well cared for. The staff was attentive, politely and perfectly responding to my every need. I truly never felt alone. The dining options were amazing and the facilities were beautiful. I would surely stay again.

Dukes Hotel Return VisitPosted Mar 2, 2014
Pros: It is a quiet and peaceful location, but in a very central position for many attractions of London. I felt looked after and special.
Cons: It might help to remind residents when they check in about the need to book a table in the bar, if you wish to enjoy a martini in original surrounding
Location: It is a perfect location just off Piccadilly and close to Leicester Square, the RA, short distance from Buckingham Palace and excellent shopping.
My second stay at The Dukes Hotel and yet again a fantastic experience. This time I invited a friend to join me for lunch at Forty Six, which was excellent. The whole stay included exquisite food and beverages. I would recommend the hot chocolate.The staff were extremely attentive and nothing was too much trouble. I shall definitely return again.

First (and not last) stay at The Dukes Hotel!Posted Jan 20, 2014
Location: The Dukes is tucked away in a very quiet location off Piccadilly. The Royal Academy is a few minutes walk and easy access to popular attractions.
I booked this hotel as one of the Secret Hotel deals. What an amazing place. Everything was excellent and nothing was too much trouble. The staff were friendly, helpful and made you feel very special. I shall definitely be returning and will be recommending it to friends - although it would be a lovely secret place to keep for myself! The hotel is to be found in a peaceful location off Piccadilly. I had very easy journeys to all my activities - RA, British Library, South Bank, The Shard & Oxford Street. I was sad not to have the opportunity to sample the award winning restaurant further, but was provided with two outstanding breakfasts and room service. Thank you for such a wonderful weekend.

Charming Old World Hotel / One of London's best!Posted Jan 2, 2014
You have not experienced London at it's best unless you have been the guest at the Dukes Hotel. So many times when looking for old world charm in a hotel you only get the old part. You know... the musty, not updated, sort of clean, poorly located, tired, run down hotel. Not so at the Dukes! At the Dukes you are truly a guest at an old world hotel. This hotel exudes a pride in it's unwillingness to let go of the elegant charm and civility of the past.The rooms are very clean and nicely updated with 12 foot ceilings, recessed lighting and beautiful moldings The restaurant is superb. The bar is so very cozy and warm you just can not help but linger there. Room service is fabulous. Somehow breakfast always tastes better with Sterling silver flatware. The most outstanding feature of this gem is the staff. Every person in the employ of the hotel is smartly dressed and treats you as if you are the most important guest they have. Courteous, welcoming, attentive and intuitive in responding to your every wish. This hotel has an engrossing history as the venue for the aristocracy of London. Located only minutes on foot from St. James and Buckingham Palaces and the surrounding parks. Only minutes by taxi to Trafalgar Square / Piccadilly / Westminster and the theater district. Similarly close is the shopping in Knightsbridge.

Look harderPosted Dec 6, 2013
Convenient location but not really luxury service; breakfast not great; wi-fi virtually non-existent; tiny room; hugely overpriced for what you get.

Fabulous hotel for our 10th wedding anniversaryPosted Nov 13, 2013
Pros: An easier question is what didn't we like? NOTHING!
Cons: The number of hours in a day.
Location: The location is a gem in the greatest city in the world.
The location, hotel, staff, cocktails and food were out of this world.

Small Luxury HotelPosted Oct 28, 2013
Pros: Location, small size, elegance and the high quality staff.
Location: Theater, museums, restaurants, and Parks.
We first stayed in the Dukes Hotel in the 1970s and returned to celebrate our wedding anniversary. It was a thrill to be back ay the Dukes! The location is perfect. We were able to walk everywhere. To Harrods, to Hyde Park, to Portobello road and Covent Garden. The room was elegant and tastefully furnished. If want a great place in London book the Dukes.
