Dorsett Hospitality International opens new Dao by Dorsett West London
This summer, Asian based hotel company Dorsett Hospitality International will open the doors of the new Dao by Dorsett West London and welcome guests to a unique serviced apartment concept in the heart of Shepherds Bush. Creating a true home from home experience, Dao by Dorsett West London offers guests increased flexibility for their stay, making it an ideal destination for long term guests. With an all-encompassing ‘custom fit’ offering that ensures guests’ wellness, fitness, family, pets and London experience is taken care of during their stay, Dao by Dorsett West London is the capital’s new destination for those seeking all the benefits of a hotel but with the independence of having their own apartment.
Dao By Dorsett West London comprises 74 apartments of one and two bedroom configurations – including accessible studios – complete with multi-functional kitchenettes, living spaces in which to work and relax, and in some cases private outdoor terraces to take in the sights and sounds of the local area. Each apartment at Dao by Dorsett West London has been thoughtfully designed with the guest experience in mind, and the combination of hotel amenities and optional welcome packs with full cooking facilities and home comforts ensures guests are getting the best of both worlds.
Dao By Dorsett West London seeks to stay true to the brand’s namesake of ‘Dao’ meaning ‘the way’, by partnering with local suppliers and encouraging guests to explore the way of the local community. Dao By Dorsett is inherently social as a brand, and as such is developing a series of experiences that invite the local community into the property including monthly Sip & Sketch art workshops with local artists.
An important part of the Dao By Dorsett experience is the ‘custom fit’ offering, which ensures each stay is bespoke to the traveller.
Dao understands the importance of maintaining good physical and mental wellbeing and that’s why they have partnered with a range of fitness brands to create the ultimate wellbeing offering. During their stay a range of fitness equipment can be delivered to guests’ apartments to enable them to exercise in the comfort of their own room, including weights, a yoga mat and more. In addition, guests can also rent Peloton bikes that can be pre-booked for their stay. For those wanting the latest work out gear Dao has partnered with Perfect Moments Sports to ensure guests have fitness wear at their fingertips. Guests can also choose to head outside to Brook Green for a routine in the fresh air or make the most of discounts at local gyms such as Gymbox and Yoga West.
President and Executive Director of Dorsett Hospitality International Winnie Chiu comments “Dao translates into English as ‘the way’ and emphasises how Dao by Dorsett aparthotels will empower our guests with the choice and flexibility needed so they can truly travel the way they want to. The value of connections in life is more priceless than ever. By offering a longer-stay option with thoughtful services and amenities, our guests will be able to maximise their time reconnecting with loved ones and sharing memorable moments with the local community as they start to travel and explore the world again!”
Guests will be immersed in the Dao by Dorsett brand from the moment they step into the hotel, with harmonious touches set to include a welcome tea experience, freshly baked biscuits, and a bespoke plant library to instantly put guests at ease and welcome them as locals to their new home from home.
