So discreet that you can almost miss it, but magnificent once you enter, the Corinthia Hotel is one of the finest hotels in London. Previously the belle-epoque era Hotel Metropole, followed by a stint as Churchill's Ministry of Defence, the Corinthia manages to combine an illustrious past with world-class contemporary interior.
From the minute you walk into the lobby, bathed in natural light from the stunning Baccarat chandelier and centre piece of fresh orchids, you know that you are somewhere special. The rooms are fresh, contemporary and luxurious a palette of fresh creams, pinks and blues and well-planned out bathrooms mean your stay will be ever so comfortable. The hotel affords spectacular views over London's South Bank from the River Suites, which literally take your breath away. The dining options are immense; take afternoon tea in the Lobby Lounge, enjoy exquisite Italian cuisine at David Collin's designed Massimo or take a post-dinner drink at the sexy art-deco Bassoon Bar. The hotel also features its own Harrod's store, in-house florist and ESPA's global flagship. Set over four floors, the Corinthia is home to the largest spa in London and features a Daniel Galvin hair salon, resident acupuncturist and heavenly relaxation rooms filled with elegant white armchairs set around sleek open fireplaces.
The Corinthia Hotel is perfectly located just minutes from the Embankment, and guests at the Corinthia are a short walking distance from some of London's most iconic sites; one can stroll to Trafalgar Square and the National Gallery in minutes, cross the River Thames to the London Eye or catch a West End show literally just across the road from the hotel.
