The newly opened Dorchester Hotel

Page from The Tatler, a form of advertorial, promoting the newly opened Dorchester Hotel on London's Park Lane. Illustration features the entrance and text waxes lyrical about the captial's newest luxury hotel, describing, 'an interior luxuriously replete with every conceivable comfort and service that a modern hotel should provide, yet so restrained as to give an instant atmosphere of dignity and grace.' So...luxurious, but not vulgar! Date: 1931
