Dorsett Hospitality International has opened its first hotel in Europe.
Located in west London, Dorsett Shepherd's Bush is the company's 19th property, and its first outside Asia. It currently has 18 other hotels in China, Hong Kong, Singapore and Malaysia.
Housed in a Grade II-listed building, Dorsett Shepherd's Bush retains much of the former 1920s cinema's historic façade.
