About the hotel
The Dilly has a rich history as one of London’s finest hotels. Our excellent reputation is built on years of British tradition, with our Edwardian heritage reflected in everything we do.

The hotel opened in 1908 as The Piccadilly Hotel and quickly became one of London’s most luxurious hotels.

In 2021, the hotel was rebranded as ‘The Dilly’, a new name for a new era. If you want to stay in a hotel steeped in history in the centre of London, look no further than The Dilly.
