“Hidden Treasure in London”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

The Corinthia Hotel in Whitehall Place London was the best find. It is rated as 5 star but the service of everyone in this boutique hotel is definitely 6 star! We had a deluxe room which was simply beautiful. The full marble bathroom was spacious and elegant. From the moment you arrive and the door is opened into this elegantly modern boutique hotel you will relax. The flowers throughout the hotel are magnificent. When you walk through the flower room to breakfast it is breathtaking (if you like flowers)! Breakfast is in a New York style space and presented well. This hotel is so well situated you can walk everywhere, Embankment tube station 50 m away from front door, Tate Modern, Westminster all a stone's throw. The Concierge's can arrange tickets to anywhere! This place is a standout - stay there.

Room Tip: The deluxe room was perfect but the location is quiet and beautiful.

Thank you so much for your glowing review of Corinthia Hotel London. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail, design and service, and always attempt to exceed our guest’s expectations. We are indeed really centrally located and many of the major London sights are within walking distance. We too think our florist does a magnificent job with beautiful flowers throughout the hotel, and currently they have also festooned our halls with Christmas decorations. We look forward to welcoming you again very soon to our hotel and perhaps next time we can introduce you to our magnificent spa.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager

Best hotel I have stayed in, in London, lives up to its excellent reputation. Rooms are a good size, very nicely laid out and great design. Could not fault the room at all only wish my bedroom was like it. Service and staff also very good and attentive, again could not fault the great service. Very relaxed public areas, bars and lounge and not at all stuffy. Only one small gripe and that was the breakfast was average, service very good but the food, we had full English, was a little disappointing. For the price of it I would of expected better presentation. However would definately go back...make sure you ask for a room looking out and not looking into the central atrium.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing outwards and not inwards

The hotel is very well located, near Embankment tube station, 5-10 minutes walk: London Eye, Trafalgar Square, Big Ben, but in different directions.
About the room I can tell you it was large, about 50 square meters, there are different types of rooms depending on the number of people and equipment.

Room was overlooking the hotel's courtyard, very quiet, free from outside noise.

Mention that the hotel is located in an intersection and has 2 sides to the main road, both noisy.

I stayed at the Corinthia last week on a business trip, but absolutely plan on returning for pleasure next time I vacation in Europe. The hotel is beautiful, the service exemplary, the location is excellent (20 minute walk from most spots of note in the city) and the rooms are both plush and comfortable. The other reviews speak to the heated marble floors, the beautiful artwork, etc., so I won't reiterate all of those details but will instead confirm their accuracy. One aspect not written about in great detail is the spa/pool, which is absurdly nice (4 floors, whirlpools, Grade A sauna and steamroom). The breakfast was tasty, albeit rather expensive.

The only "negative" I can raise is the bed. While it was billed as a king-size bed, it proved to actually be two mattresses pulled together (with king bedding over the top). I experienced this same set-up in a number of very nice hotels in Italy, so perhaps it is the standard in parts of the EU, but coming from the US, the crack in the middle was not all that enjoyable...

Room Tip: Curved bank of windows in the executive rooms provide for nearly 180 degree views of the city.

Thank you for your wonderful comments of Corinthia Hotel London. I am delighted to learn you found the hotel to be impressive during your business stay so much so that you will return at your leisure. The hotel is perfectly located close to the River Thames and within walking distance from many of London’s landmarks. The hotel has been redesigned to accommodate all the luxuries needed for the 21st century traveller from the LED TVs at the foot of the baths to the 24 hour access to our gym located within the spa. ESPA Life at Corinthia is our magnificent four floor spa providing an escape from the busy city. Our Thermal Floor is complimentary to all our guests and includes facilities such as a steam room, ice fountain, swimming pool, a glass amphitheatre sauna and a vitality pool. A variety of treatments are also available for both men and women, which I highly recommend you try on your next visit. I shall look forward to welcoming you back soon.

This hotel is perfect in everyway. The service from the time you arrive is second to none. The staff know how to make you feel very welcome and tend to your every need.. We had booked a delux courtroom room which was large and spacious. The bathroom was superb as it had a large bath and a separate large shower. Our walk-in closet was perfect for storing luggage. We only had breakfast in the hotel once which was delicious. A wide variety of food to choose from.
I would highly recommend this hotel for 5 star service. accommodation and location.

The Corinthia is sublime. Every aspect of my stay was excellent; service, accommodations, spa...everything! This was my second stay at the Corinthia and I will be back. The room was spacious, well appointed and the bathroom was amazing. For both stays my room was large, with a walk-in closet and a foyer. Even the art on the walls feels personal not the typical anonymous hotel room decor. The service was outstanding from beginning to end. The spa is not to be missed. I was pampered and left feeling like a new person. The Corinthia pays attention to the details of its accommodations, spa offerings and ultimately its customers. I will summarize my review of the Corinthia with two words - quality and service.

Room Tip: Cannot comment on the breakfast as I didn't have breakfast at the hotel.

Everything about this place was impeccable. The service was second to none and the rooms were amazing. Certainly worth the money you pay for.

Both the room and its ensuite bathroom (with both bathtub and shower room, two sinks) were large. Very clean, modern and comfortable. The beds and bedding were hugely comfortable and you could tell that they were of the highest quality.

The breakfast is pricey (£30 per person) but the buffet selection of both hot and cold foods were extensive - there was a lot on offer. From fresh fruits to cereals to sausages, mushrooms, potatoes, eggs to a large selection of pastries. The juices were freshly squeezed, large variety including carrot, apple, orange etc. The fruits available were really fresh and appeared to be carefully handpicked and served (e.g., large and red strawberries, raspberries, blackberries). Food was also beautifully displayed.

Due to our travelling circumstances, we were allowed a very late check-out of 2:30pm which we were grateful for.

Only gripe was that we wanted to have a quick tour of the spa facility to see whether it was worth going in to use them. We were turned away as we weren't dressed in our robes - they said they didn't allow tours so as to not disturb their guests. Fair enough, but we're guests all the same having paid a lot to stay there so we should be allowed to all the same. We felt it was a an inconvenience to ask for us to return dressed in our robes to then allow us to view the facilities - so we missed out on this.

Our bathrooms have heated marble floors, rain showers and LED TVs at the foot of the bath making them relaxing and luxurious. The Northall has a wonderful breakfast selection, with an emphasis on healthier options as you kindly highlighted. All the produce served in The Northall has been sourced from artisan suppliers from around the British Isles. I hope you were able to experience our magnificent spa, ESPA Life at Corinthia while you were here. Our Thermal Floor is complimentary to all our guests and provides a relaxing environment for all to enjoy. We hope to welcome you back to the hotel soon.
