I have stayed in a number of 5-star hotels over the years but I would say the Corinthia is the most breathtakingly beautiful.
We stayed in October as our friends were getting married in the ballroom and the Corinthia organised for us to check-in early with the minimum of fuss. The room was smaller than other rooms in hotels in a similar price bracket but excellently appointed - bath AND shower in the bathroom (bath with in-built TV), good mini-bar, sweet little juliet balcony, large bed & separate seating area. Very luxurious/sexy overall feel and all extra-touches thought of (little box of chocolates, decent toiletries, huge umbrellas in the wardrobes AND a proper hair dryer).
The only downside (and it's a small one) is that the staff were nowhere near as friendly/accommodating as in other 5 star hotels. I would say "business-like" as opposed to unfriendly but different to say One Aldwych or The Waldorf where staff look delighted to see you!
Overall, I would highly recommend. The whole place is stunning but maybe the receptionists need to practice smiling!!!
