This was our sixth visit to the Corinthia London. As always we reserved an Executive King. Formally the hotel allowed 24 hour check in / out but this has now changed to check 3pm or after. We arrived at the hotel for 2.30 and our room was ready for us. I think more regulated check in check out process works better and prevents lengthy waits for your room.

We were welcomed back by the receptionist and they remembered our specifics from the previous stay. We were then shown to our room by a Guest Relations Manager. We had a beautiful room on the 3rd floor located in the corner of the triangle that forms the hotel looking over an ornamental roof garden. We had a small terrace a perfect size bedroom area with occasional seating, hall way, separate walk in closet and spacious bathroom. The room was impeccably clean and as expected very tastefully decorated. We had pre order ordered champagne and scones (an odd combination perhaps!) and they were waiting for us upon arrival. The scones were fresh, light and delicious served with a selection of jams and fresh clotted cream.

As usual we choose to dine in the stunning and relaxing lobby lounge. The service was excellent as was the food, coffee and wine! We then had a night cap outside in the courtyard. Whilst we had been dining housekeeping had freshened the room and turned down the bed leaving a little parcel of lavender on each pillow.

The following morning breakfast was delivered to the room bang on time along with complimentary new papers. The breakfast as always was excellent. This must be the only hotel I have ever stayed in that can actually manage to deliver a hot and tasty full English to your room! The cooked breakfast was accompanied by fresh juice, hot coffee, toast and pastries! Faultlessly presented as always.

Check out was speedy and friendly and the receptionist finished by saying that they hoped to see us again soon. We genuinely could not fault any aspect of the hotels performance on this visit.

Thank you for posting a lovely review of your sixth stay at Corinthia Hotel London. We are always especially pleased to welcome back returning guests, and pride ourselves on remembering the little details that can make a stay so special. How charming to arrive in your room to be greeted by Champagne and scones, a delightful variation on our Afternoon Tea. There is nowhere more stunning to dine in London than under the Baccarat one thousand and one crystal chandelier, and to retire to The Courtyard for an alfresco nightcap under the stars. Then to wake up the next morning with an in-room dining Full English is really doing it in style. We feel very privileged that Corinthia London is your hotel of choice, and look forward to offering you a very warm welcome on many more stays to come.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

Located in The Corinthia Hotel, the Lobby Lounge is the perfect place for the afternoon tea. Corinthia hotel was not our first choice for a Saturday afternoon tea, infact we tried to have a reservation at Savoy or Ritz. Then, we loved Corinthia Hotel and we were very happy to spend our afternoon in this wonderful place.
The place is very nice and lovely.
My friend and I chose the traditional high tea tea and it included sandwiches, pastries, macarones, chocolate and small cake. The sandwiches were very nice, 5 different types and complementary extras if you required.
Afternoon Tea at Lobby Lounge – Corinthia Hotel is an experience not to be missed.
Sorry if my English is not perfect but I am not English mother tongue.

Thank you for posting a delightful review of your Afternoon Tea in The Lobby Lounge at Corinthia Hotel London. We can't think of anywhere more special to enjoy Afternoon Tea than under the stunning one thousand and one Baccarat crystal chandelier. There is a wide choice of teas from India, China, and Japan, as well as special blends, and herbal infusions, served with finger sandwiches, scones, and seasonal fancies. We are very pleased you had a delightful time and can't wait to welcome you back on your next visit to London.

I stayed at the Corinthia for a week while in London on business and holiday. From the moment I walked through the front doors I was treated like a honored guest and the accommodations of this hotel are second to none! The amazing hotel, staff, and perfect location has made this one my favorite destinations in London.

The Corinthia is expensive and is not in or adjacent to a residential neighborhood as are many of the finest hotels in London. It doesn't have great views from many rooms. It doesn't contain a world-class restaurant. Having said that, I think it's the best hotel in which I have ever stayed.

The rooms are commodious. The bathrooms are fantastic, well-equipped and with plenty of storage space. The closets are capacious. The service levels are truly outstanding without being intrusive. The design of the entire hotel is "modern classic" with a few additional touches thrown in with just the right proportions. The breakfasts are fabulous, served in a fabulous setting. The afternoon tea (which for many becomes the afternoon cocktail or fine scotch hour) is splendid. The location turns out to be just about perfect if you are interested in spending time at the South Bank as well as at the more typical tourist attractions in this great city. I could go on. But rather than delve into innumerable details I will just say that we would not even consider another hotel for our future stays in London. As a traveler who has stayed at a number of the bigger "names" in London, I would say without hesitation that this is the best of a very good bunch.

Thank you for posting a glowing review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. We found your enthusiasm and feedback very endearing. We are delighted you appreciated the larger than average rooms for London hotels with superb marble bathrooms, and liked the phrase "modern classic", which certainly sums up Corinthia London. The hotel was designed by GA Design, who have cleverly combined the best of the original features with modern design to create a hotel fit for the twenty-first century traveller. There's no better way to start a day of sight-seeing than the extensive buffet breakfast in The Northall, and there's no better way to end it than with our traditional Afternoon Tea served under the Baccarat chandelier in The Lobby Lounge; that magically transforms itself into a destination bar at cocktail hour. The location is ideal for the leisure traveller, with an adjacent transport hub for quick and easy access across the city, many of London's best sights are within walking distance, and the West End with some of the world's best theatre is within a mile radius. We are very pleased that we will be your only hotel of choice when you are in London, as the team are looking forward to offering you a very warm Corinthia welcome.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

If you're accustomed to the finest, the Corinthia will not disappoint in any regard. Impeccable service from the desk staff to the concierge to the personal butler...overwhelming at times in the most positive sense. We received a suite upgrade via the Amex FHR program and the room was really magnificent...down to every detail with incredible style, fit and finish...stunning! Really one of the finest hotel experiences we have ever had, a perfect location very near Trafalgar Square and a style and aesthetic that was perfectly luxurious.

Room Tip: We were on the first floor, which did not afford the views of the river the higher floors do.

I stayed here whilst facilitating a retreat and the service was excellent - my room was simple and well appointed.
The crystal chandelier is amazing in the bar area.
The food was exceptional and the staff were so helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Great location for swiping rhetoric sights of London. Highly recommend it

Thank you for posting a review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. We are delighted we were able to facilitate a retreat, especially as the rooms are very quiet, even though the hotel is in the heart of London. The one thousand and one Baccarat crystal chandelier certainly makes a stunning first impression, and the lighting throughout the hotel is an architectural feature. We are very pleased you enjoyed great service, and found the positioning perfect for sight-seeing London's iconic destinations. We very much appreciate your kind recommendation and look forward to offering you a warm welcome on your next visit to London.
