Like sister hotel, the Dorsett Shepherds Bush, this City outpost is home to Chinese restaurant, Shikumen, specialising in dim sum - which is also served up for breakfast, alongside the self-serve full English. There's a small gym, meeting rooms and, on the ground floor, VQ (Vingt Quatre) offers classic comfort cuisine and 24 hour in-room breakfast. But it's up on 14th floor at the roof top bar Jin Bo Law that you'll find the best place to drink in those wonderful views of the Sky Garden, the Gherkin and The Shard. All 267 rooms come with TV, desk, wardrobe and wifi as well as coffee & tea making facilities and en suite bathrooms complete with power shower and White Company toiletries.

Shikumen at Dorsett City follows in the footsteps of its flagship restaurant at Dorsett Shepherds Bush which has received rave reviews from critics and hotel guests alike since it launched in 2014, including a Bib Gourmand from the Michelin guide inspectors. They highlighted the "impressive homemade dim sum at lunch and excellent Peking duck" as the standouts at this "sleek Cantonese restaurant" and this city sibling close to Liverpool Street station has all the right ingredients to follow suit.
