My husband and I stayed here in December for a Christmas getaway, we wanted to experience some cold weather (its warm where we live) and Christmas cheer, which London is full of! We picked the Corinthia based on reviews and what appeared to be a good location, and we are so happy we did.
The location can't be beat. We could walk practically everywhere, and the embankment tube is a very convenient line, we could go most places we wanted to go without transfer. We really didn't need to cab at all. This hotel is walking distance to Westminster Abbey, Parliament, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye, St. Paul's Cathedral, the Churchill War Rooms, most of the popular Theatres, Trafalgar Square, Sommerset House, tons of parks and museums, it was a bit far but we also had a nice walk to Harrods and the wonderful high end shopping over on Sloane street and Knightsbridge area.
The service at the hotel was outstanding all around. Breakfast was delivered every morning on time to our room with professionalism and a smile. I had many requests that the concierge happily fulfilled prior to our arrival including obtaining some very hard to get theater tickets, and multiple dinner reservations. Max and other concierge staff, thank you for all your help! The doormen were attentive, I never had to open the door, they always were there to greet us. And housekeeping was also very good. I appreciate the washcloth under makeup compacts and other toiletries, extra items of what was clearly being used the most, organization of the countertop, a clean pair of slippers each night, etc. I also want to add that they have excellent hairdryers, BaByliss Pro Hairdryers, so I didn't have to fry my fine hair with a standard hotel hairdryer.
The room and bathroom were a nice size, I thought they were larger by European hotel standards.
Lastly, if you stay here you MUST do the champagne tea. It was such a wonderful experience, I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting London, they must go here for tea. I wish we had time to do it more than once.
Overall we had a wonderful trip and this hotel was a big part of it, so thank you to all the staff.
