10 London hotels with Michelin-star restaurants

These 10 restaurants in London hotels have won Michelin stars, adding a ready customer base for chefs and prestige for the hotel itself.

With the Michelin Guide announcing its new award for hotels, the Michelin key, it's time to pose the question – what makes an ideal hotel experience? Impeccable service, great amenities and a relaxing atmosphere are all must-haves, but while some hotels regard food as a second thought, with basic continental breakfasts and hotel-room coffee, others are striving to use food and dining to attract visitors beyond the bookings.

A hotel restaurant can introduce London's ever-evolving and diverse food scene to guests in the comfort of their temporary home. If it can successfully capture its city's culture through quality cuisine, then it's connected even deeper with its guests while they take advantage of all the property offers.

And if a hotel and its restaurant entices guests to stick around longer, then it's done its job. These hotels and their accompanying Michelin-starred restaurants have properly nailed this task.

1. The Ritz restaurant at the Ritz London – one Michelin star

A fine-dining staple, the Ritz London opened in 1906 in Picadilly, but it wasn't until 2017 that its restaurant gained its first Michelin star under its current chef, John Williams. Ceiling-to-floor windows, gold chandeliers and pink marble can be found in the famous Ritz dining room, with an outdoor terrace overlooking Green Park. But it's the fine French cuisine and quality British ingredients that continue to make the Ritz restaurant the epitome of luxury dining. Find Devon crab paired with crème fraîche and Imperial caviar, hay-aged duck with apricot and lavender and the iconic beef wellington with hen of the wood mushrooms and Périgord truffle.

8. Alain Ducasse at the Dorchester – three Michelin stars

Voted London's best hotel by the Condé Nast Traveller's Readers' Choice Awards, the Dorchester in London identifies as "undeniably British", with a history that dates back to 1792.

Hand-dived scallops, native lobster, Cornish turbot and saddle venison from Rhugg Estate are all on the tasting menu, with the option of adding black truffle or caviar to any dish. The restaurant's Table Lumière allows diners to indulge in a private setting, with a glimmering wall of silver streamers that blocks the view from the rest of the space, while still enjoying the lively atmosphere.
