My mum and I stayed here between Christmas Eve and Boxing day and it did not disappoint. The staff were SO welcoming and warm (despite having to work over Christmas!) and the room was very plush- my favourite touch was the television in the bath! Turn down service included a box of treats on our pillow, which I thought was going to be chocolates, but I was pleasantly surprised to find contained old-school penny sweets!
The location is great. I live in London myself and I like the fact that the hotel is very central, but the street itself isn't too busy or noisy. It's a 15 minute walk to Regent Street, which meant on Boxing Day we could hit the shops for the sales and be back in the hotel quickly without having to worry about transport.
Breakfast was wonderful; something I would come back for even if I wasn't staying at the hotel overnight. Again, the staff were on point; not overbearing, but we didn't need to ask for anything at all. A great selection of choices and the room that it's served in was stunning.
And finally the spa, probably the best I've been to in London (and I've been to few!). Plush dressing gowns, a lovely pool, sauna and hammam and really clean, well kept facilities.
I really can't find anything that I could really fault the hotel on; my only (minor) gripe was that there isn't a ramp at the Whitehall Place entrance for suitcases, so luggage had to be carried up a few stairs. I hope that the Corinthia manages to keep up such high standards in the long-run, as they are becoming very rare in the hospitality industry. The stay wasn't cheap at all, but it was money well spent. Highly recommended.

Breakfast in The Northall is becoming a destination restaurant and offers both a great buffet as well as menu choices, and we welcome external guests as well. I am glad you enjoyed using our exceptional ESPA Life spa and gym, indulging in the four floors of pure luxury pampering.
We do apologise for the for the absence of a ramp at the Whitehall Place entrance for suitcases and we have duly noted this point with the team. We look forward to welcoming you again soon so that you can see we have maintained our high standards.
Kind regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager
