Once you get past the sticker shock, which isn't limited to this hotel but London in general, you can enjoy your stay. I traveled with a group and although our rates were the same we found our rooms to be quite varied in size. Closets were almost non exsistent in some rooms while others had enourmous space. Telephones in the rooms were frustrating. They frequently went into the do not disturb mode and needed the hotel operator to turn it off. Another annoyance was the lack of an outlet in the bathroom. It made it very difficult to use a hair dryer.
The atrium is beautiful with its Baccarat chandelier and lovely tea service. Bed was comfortable and the room very clean. The Spa is very nice with some services priced as expected while others seemed out of sync. A deluxe manicure and pedicure was just average (no cuticle triming and a very short massage) but very expensive (155 GBP).
Just 2 blocks from Trafalger Square and within walking distance to Westminister Abbey, the Corinitha is a luxury property that is still working out some new hotel issues.
If I found myself back in London and could negotiate a good rate, I'd go back.
