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.

Thank you for posting a glowing review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. We can’t think of a lovelier time of year to say that over the Christmas period when the hotel and London is decorated in festive garlands and lights. The hotel is situated in the cultural heart of London, with many of London’s must-see sights within walking distance, next to both Embankment tube and Charing Cross rail stations for quick and easy access throughout the city, and over thirty West End theatres and opera houses within a mile radius, as well as world-class shopping within the vicinity. We are delighted you enjoyed our in-room dining facilities, it is a special treat to have breakfast delivered to your room. We are always most pleased to read of our staff going above and beyond to exceed our guest’s expectations, your compliments has been forwarded to the Concierge team. All of our rooms are larger than average for central London hotels, and come complete with many luxurious amenities as standard, including ESPA toiletries, fluffy slippers, and powerful Babyliss hairdryers; whilst the big underfloor heated marble bathrooms include separate rain showers and big bath tubs with built in LCD-TVs for the ultimate luxury. We very much appreciate your recommendation to take Afternoon Tea under the iconic Baccarat chandelier in The Lobby Lounge, especially with a glass of ice cold Laurent-Perrier Champagne. It sounds like you had the most delightful stay, and we cannot wait to offer you a warm Corinthia London welcome on your next visit.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

This was a weekend spa break. The hotel was simply outstanding throughout, from the quality of the room, the unfailingly courteous staff, the range and quality of the breakfast. The spa was unbelievable in its scale, ambience and is fully deserving of it's reputation as a must-visit.

Thank you for posting a glowing review of your weekend spa stay at Corinthia Hotel London. In just a sentence you have summed up the essence of Corinthia London, and many of the aspects that make it so very special, from the best quality fixtures and fittings, superb design, the award-winning ESPA Life at Corinthia spa, the extensive buffet breakfast in The Northall, but most of all the exemplary standards of service from the staff. We are delighted with your recommendation and look forward to welcoming you back soon.

The Corinthia is perfect in every way! Our room was luxurious and large, the on-site restaurant was delicious and service was perfection in all aspects of the hotel. Two of our favorite room features were the huge walk-in closet and the fabulous shower. Location was also wonderful--very close to the Embankment tube stop, we were able to quickly reach our destinations. We rank Corinthia higher than most of the five-star hotels where we have stayed and look forward to returning whenever we visit London again.

We had afternoon tea here sometime in November and it was a great experience.

I initially wanted to book the Ritz but it was fully booked. I checked references from The UK Tea Guild and i found that Corinthia ranked consistently amongst the top 10

Booking was easy and online. Confirmation was sent immediately.

For people who appreciate experiences like this, Corinthia is the place to be.

The quality of the tea, the ambiance and the service was fantastic. We started with hand crafted sandwich and moved on to more intricate luxurious tarts, cakes and cookies while our tea was refreshed continuously

By the time we were done, we knew that we couldn't eat dinner any longer! We were thoroughly satisfied

All this for how much? Just about £50 per person!

I strongly recommend

Thank you for posting a review of your Afternoon Tea in The Lobby Lounge at Corinthia Hotel London. We are delighted to read that you had a smooth and easy booking experience, and then we were able to exceed your expectations with the exemplary service and fabulous sandwiches, tea, and cakes. We think there is nowhere more lovely in London to take tea than under the iconic Baccarat chandelier in The Lobby Lounge, looking especially charming at the moment with festive decorations. We very much appreciate your recommendations and look forward to welcoming you in 2014.

The girls and I went for Christmas afternoon tea here this weekend and it was beautiful! The service was impeccable with almost a waiter per table and they continued to offer complimentary sandwiches, scones and cakes to us all. It was just right to enjoy the festive spirit as the hotel is decorated beautifully yet understatedly. A 2 minute walk from Embankment station this was also perfect for my elderly grandmother as she could sample the lights and the Thames whilst walking the short distance to the Corinthia hotel. Having sampled many afternoon teas in and around London, I definitely recommend a visit to this hotel and will be going back myself with other friends and family as soon as possible as this is now high up on my afternoon tea experience list. Truly exquisite!
