THE CHIC ESCAPE:
The Dorchester, London

Keeping watch over Hyde Park, this is the place where Elizabeth Taylor hung an original Van Gogh above the fireplace to surprise her beau Richard Burton. Get ready to make an entrance with a La Prairie facial in the spa, then dress to impress and head to China Tang for champagne and Chinese cuisine. dorchestercollection.com
