Dorchester Collection Diamond Club Benefits

 

Dorchester Diamond Club is The Dorchester Collection's preferred partner program. TravelSort Clients can book with Dorchester Collection, Virtuoso, or AMEX Fine Hotels & Resorts benefits (for AMEX Platinum card holders) and in addition to the perks of each program, receive preferred pricing on our Award Booking Service when booking at least $1500 in hotel stays with TravelSort. 

The Dorchester Collection Diamond Club benefit of a guaranteed one category upgrade at time of booking (for all Dorchester hotels except 45 Park Lane) trumps the Virtuoso and AMEX FHR benefits, so you're best of booking a Dorchester Collection hotel with Diamond Club benefits.

FAQ
 
Which Hotels are in the Dorchester Collection?

There are just 10 Dorchester hotels, 2 in the U.S. and 8 in Europe:
  • The Dorchester (London, UK)
  • 45 Park Lane (London, UK)
  • Coworth Park (Ascot, UK)
  • Le Meurice (Paris, France)
  • Hotel Plaza Athenee (Paris, France) (Note the renovated hotel will reopen in Summer 2014)
  • Le Richemond (Geneva, Switzerland)
  • Hotel Principe di Savoia (Milan, Italy)
  • Hotel Eden (Rome, Italy)
  • The Beverly Hills Hotel (Beverly Hills, CA)
  • Hotel Bel Air (Los Angeles, CA)

Which Dorchester Rates are Eligible for Diamond Club Benefits?

The Dorchester Collection eligible rate is the hotel's best available rate (BAR), so promotional rates do not qualify.
 
  
 
Are All Dorchester Collection Hotels Eligible for Dorchester Diamond Club Benefits?
 
Yes, with the exception of 45 Park Lane, where an upgrade is not a benefit due to it being such a small hotel, and Studio Rooms at Hotel Eden in Rome, although other benefits (breakfast, 100 GBP credit and complimentary Internet) apply.
 
 
Can Dorchester Diamond Club Benefits, AMEX FHR and Virtuoso Benefits All Be Applied to a Reservation?
 
No, you must choose one, among Dorchester Collection Diamond Club amenities, Virtuoso benefits and AMEX FHR benefits. In all cases with the possible exception of 45 Park Lane (where even with Virtuoso and AMEX FHR upgrade is based on availability at check-in) or unless you must have 4pm late check-out (guaranteed with AMEX FHR, but on availability with Diamond Club and Virtuoso) it makes more sense to book with Dorchester Diamond Club benefits, due to the guaranteed upgrade at time of booking for guest rooms.
