“Worth it”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2013

We stayed for two nights in mid-April. We had a deluxe junior suite and from the moment we arrived in our hire car our stay was flawless. We pulled up and 3 doormen helped us gather all of our belongings from a week of driving out of the hire car, then parked it for us and held it free of charge until the hire car company picked it up. A lovely bottle of champagne awaited us in the suite.

We spent a wonderful afternoon at the spa... we were disappointed we hadn't booked more treatments, it is absolutely worth it!

As international tourists we also loved the small Harrods store in the lobby, wonderful to be able to purchase a few last minute forgotten gifts without going out.

Room Tip: The junior suites are worth it!

I have to say I have stayed in many 5* hotels and this is probably the best so far. My favourite usual haunt when staying in London has been the Landmark however Corinthia has now replaced that.
Unfortunately I only had a one night stay with my daughter, but from the evening meal, breakfast and afternoon tea to the fantastic room and oh so comfortable beds to the most relaxing Espa Thermal floor, I could not find one thing to fault.
The 24 hour check-in and out time was brilliant and added that extra touch - no more rushing after breakfast to pack and get out before 12 noon and what a difference that made.

I hope that I might be able to stay again for my BIG birthday and enjoy all the extra touches that this hotel offers. Whoever thought of those added 'extra's' WELL DONE because it certainly makes Corinthia stand out head and shoulders above the rest.

I will certainly be using this hotel for business trips to London in future and hope to bring the rest of the family soon, as I am sure once I tell them all about the stay they will be so jealous.
Thank you everyone for an amazing and relaxing stay.

A lovely hotel. Modern features in a historic building. The staff was wonderful. Couldn't have been more helpful. The morning breakfast buffet was delightful. They have a lovely courtyard and the rooms facing the courtyard enjoy a french balcony. There is a power center that accommodated all power cords. Fantastic rain shower head. Even a television set built in to bathtub wall. The location was so nice. Near the Thames, underground. Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden an easy walk. Oh, and did I mention the beautiful lobby and all the fresh flowers?

Thank you for your kind review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London, it certainly sounds like you had the opportunity to enjoy many of the facilities the hotel has to offer. GA Design have very cleverly combined the original grand hotel features with modern design to produce a stunning first impression. We are really appreciative of your comments regarding the Corinthia team, especially as we pride ourselves on always going the extra mile and exceeding our guest’s expectations. The buffet breakfast in The Northall is exceptional, offering a wide variety of options including fresh fruit, yoghurts and cereals, cold meat and fish platters as well as a full English. The Courtyard is unique amongst central London hotels, offering an open air area for al fresco eating and drinking, with two open fires to warm up the cooler days. All of the bedrooms come complete with an international connection power centre with en suite underfloor heated marble bathrooms with separate rain showers and built in LCD-TV as standard. The location of the hotel is ideal for both the business and leisure traveller, within walking distance of many of London’s iconic sights, with over thirty West End theatres and opera houses within a mile radius and adjacent to a central transport hub. The fresh flowers throughout the hotel are indeed magnificent, we now have visitors who come in just to see our displays. We very much look forward to welcoming you again soon when you may want to experience out two international restaurants or enjoy a relaxing day in our ESPA Life spa.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

My wife booked us a suite at the Corinthia for my birthday. Loved everything about it. The rooms and public areas all speak of no-expense spared luxury without tipping into bling. The whole place has been very stylishly designed. Service by pleasant, friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic staff. Two fantastic bars (grand, stunning bar to start the evening off, and cosy jazz cafe bar for the end of the night. Excellent location. I'm not generally a spa person, but the spa here lives up to the hype: a genuinely blissfully calm and relaxing place.
Beats the socks off Claridge's and the Dorchester.
Very highly recommended. I loved it.

Room Tip: We had a suite - well worth it. Huge, bigger than many London flats.

Thank you for posting your review of your experience at Corinthia Hotel London, what a fabulous birthday treat to stay in one of our large luxurious suites. The Corinthia London was designed by GA Design, who have produced a hotel of exceptionally beautiful design with meticulous attention to detail, especially the Lobby Lounge which makes a magnificent first impression with the thousand and one crystal Bacarrat chandelier. The hotel has four great destination bars, Massimo Oyster Bar, The Northall bar, The Lobby Lounge and Bassoon art-deco jazz-age inspired bar. The location of the hotel is ideal for both sight-seeing and business, many of London’s iconic tourist sights are within walking distance, there are over thirty West End theatres and opera houses within a mile radius and there is an adjacent transport hub of Charing Cross rail and Embankment tube stations. ESPA Life spa is the ultimate place to relax and rejuvenate with four floors of marble luxury, a Thermal Floor, a next generation gym and seventeen treatment pods with expert therapists. We are really pleased you loved staying with us and we cannot wait to welcome you once more.

This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. The rooms are amazing, the staff are very friendly, helpful and dedicated. I cannot recommend this place highly enough.

Check in was slick and fast. I liked the attention to detail in showing us to our rooms.

The room was well appointed, quite large and all you would expect from a five star.

The bathroom is incredible, I loved watching TV in the bath. The shower is fantastic as well

You can stay here with confidence.

Myself and my partner stayed at the Corinthia over Xmas to celebrate his retirement from the military. From the moment we arrived, we were highly impressed by the impeccable service, attention to detail, and fabulous surroundings that truely wowed us. We were fortunate to stay in an executive king room, which was absolutely stunning, and complete with a plentiful supply of Espa products!

The spa is absolutely amazing, and definitely worth spending time luxuriating in!.

The service in the restaurant and bars was also top notch, with little touches like the barman making recomendations for drinks based on our previous evenings consumption!

The location was also perfect, for sightseeing, and shopping.

On Xmas eve night we both got a little Harrods sequined stocking filled with goodies, which was so delightful!

Our trip was to mark a special occasion, at a special time of year, and we could not have stayed anywhere more perfect. Thank you to the manager and staff for making our stay extra-special.
We have been lucky enough to stay in many luxury hotels, and we both agree the Corinthia is the absolute best, and cannot wait to return soon.

This is possibly the best hotel I have ever stayed in anywhere...(bar the Conrad in the Maldives but that is a different story). The location is fantastic, literally a 2 minute (if that!) walk south from Trafalgar Square, on Northumberland Avenue. The hotel is absolutely beautiful, its renovations was done in such a way that no detail was overlooked, from the little tables outside each room to place your newspaper or room service trays on, to the towel heating rack and the separate shower cubicle for additional privacy, to the fantastic spa facilities.

Interior:
The hotel is luxuriously decorated with fushia and pale pink orchids placed everywhere in glass bowls. The can deposits you directly in front of the door where the doormen rush out (even in the pouring rain, with an umbrella for you) to help you up the steps, your luggage, into the warmth interior of its beautiful lobby. The lights were cast in a warm glow (given the fact we came late at night, in the rain.....) and we were directed immediately to the front desk by a lovely Japanese lady.
Check in was efficient and we got an upgrade of our room to the Deluxe/Executive.

The lady took us up to our room and explained the amenities and also the WIFI access point, at which point the concierge had taken our luggage up and kindly deposited it onto the luggage racks and wardrobe.

Room:
Our room had a walk in, separate section for a wardrobe! The lights came on automatically when you walked in.
The bathroom was double sink, with a bathtub and a TV on one end and the heated towel rack on the other. I just want to point out that most 5* high end hotels we've been to has not so nice towels. Big, but not the fluffy, luxurious towels you read about. This place DOES have the big, fluffy, soft towels that just makes you want to sink into them after your wash; same with the bathrobes.
The toilet is in a separate compartment inside the bathroom, as is the shower. The shower has the rain shower and the proper one which you can take out of its bracket. The water pressure in this hotel is just amazing! And not just for London standards, but also for Swiss standards too - it was SO powerful.

The whole room has a selection of lighting, from normal ON, to mood lighting, which sets the place in a softer, warmer glow to the bed panels on each side of the bed which controls the lights. Very well thought out with these lighting panels.
There was also a panel which catered to all the plugs in the world, a separate USB port above it and its own TV, telephony and all these other weirdly lettered portals - everything is so well thought out and modernised in the room; they even provided an array of different sized boxes for your accessories, scattered tastefully about the room to look like decorations.

The showering/wash amenities in the room is from its ESPA spa productions and they smelt heavenly and lathered up in huge amounts on the skin, upon contact with water.

The breakfast buffet was sumptuously delicious, with a wide selection of hot and cold foods. The lady who sat us each morning was a haughty B* who gave the air that you were nothing more than a piece of dirt on her shoe - to pretty much everyone who came in.
The rest fo the waiting staff was attentative, helpful and really efficient.
We took the afternoon tea at the lobby and it was beautiful. They have this great big round table of mirrors which reflected the glass domed ceiling above, housing the most beautiful contemporary chandelier. Large vases of orchids were placed on the table and hte champagne bucket and sweets table was placed against the wall. Little round tables and leather clubs chairs were arranged in sets of two around this large centre piece, whilst more seating arrangements were organised about the rounded lobby lounge.
The tea was simply delicious and our waitress took the time explaining each plate of delicacies and even offered if we wanted more scones/sandwiches. I had the Laurent-Perrier Rosé afternoon tea which was incredibly expensive, at £58 a head you can find much cheaper elsewhere in London which would also get you a glass of bubbly.
However, under such wonderful setting, soft music in the background and that wonderful noise of tinkling delicate china, how can one resist?

Spa:
Is this the most perfect spa ever?! You ride the elevator to the M(ezzanine) floor where you are welcomed by the friendliest staff, in the most beautiful spa lobby all done up in cream mother of pearl and shimmering soft lights. You are taken down to stairs to the nail salon & treatment rooms on one floor, the female spa changing areas on another floor - where the corridors winds somewhat confusingly around so the whole structure looks like a curving, shimering beautiful creature.
The mens spa changing areas and gym are one floor further down and is in the appropriate black. The lowest floor is where the swimming pool, steam room, sauna and thermal pools are. Everything is in black stone here, floors and walls, with trails of white/gold veins shot through the stone. small, white light is placed at varying locations and some glass structured wall is placed by the thermal pool, so with the shimmering water reflections, the whole area has an almost mystical quality about it. You pass the lobby of this area (a resting place of sort with water, magazines and leather couches along the wall) underneath an alien sort of lamp with soft veins hanging low down, each with a tiny tiny globe of light - and into a small area where 3 heated (yes HEATED!) marble bed chairs are placed - perfect for those with back/aching joints.
The thermal pool is just beyond where you have several options of jet massages, a steel pole bed on one side and waterfall massage function in another corner, amongst more.

The swimming pool, like the thermal pool, is steel, for hygenic purposes, and lights inside the pool reflects up onto the ceiling like stars on a clear, night sky. Sofas are also lined up by the pool and it was so relaxing to sit there after the steam and the thermal pool followed by a dip in the swimming pool, and to read or do nothing.
The steam room is incredibly hot! Almost too hot to stay there for long......
The sauna was was glass encased box in front of the thermal pool and it was all lovely wood inside. The nicest, cleanest sauna ever!

The hotel is very expensive but everything is so well thought out, extremely high quality and you can absolutely expect the best for your money!
We will absolutely return to this hotel once more!

Room Tip: We stayed in room 408 after the upgrade and it was so nice! The spa lift was round the corner from u...
