Hotel Description

The old Shepherds Bush Pavilion cinema complex is now Dorsett Shepherds Bush, and it feels as though it must be some kind of sign of the times when a Hong Kong-based hotel brand sets up shop in London, rather than the converse. Here they’re aiming for something of a compromise between homegrown London style and the sort of Far East opulence familiar to their Chinese audience, and they’ve found it in a classic Art Deco structure that lends itself remarkably well to a color scheme in black, white and gold.

It’s impressive but not intimidating, which is another fine line a London hotelier has to walk — out here in West London you’re freed, a bit, from some of the pressure a more central hotel must endure. Simply put, as a guest, you get more for your money — more square footage, more comfort, and if you know your way around the Tube, or are willing to take a taxi, Shepherds Bush is certainly central enough. And it’s quite close by to one London landmark in particular: the Westfield shopping center. (American readers, trust us, it’s a bigger deal than it sounds.)

As for the rooms, they’re a bit more sedate than the Dorsett’s bold and graphic public spaces. The Chinese influence is visible in the décor, but only just — classic Englishness is the unmistakable key note. Basic rooms are cozy but not cramped, and as you move upwards you’re treated to spaces which can only be described as generous. Add to all this Pictures, the restaurant, and Jin, the bar which occupies the atrium, and you’ll finally feel the full effect of the Dorsett’s east-meets-west concept — it’s all right there on the menu.

How to get there: Dorsett Shepherds Bush is half an hour by car from Heathrow Airport and about an hour by car from Gatwick Airport. Located on the west side of Shepherds Bush Common, the hotel is easily accessible via several London Underground stations: Shepherd's Bush, Shepherd's Bush Market, and Goldhawk Road.
