My mom and I spent a girly week at the Corinthia and have not stopped talking about it since. The public areas are breathtakingly beautiful, yet contemporary. Our room (an executive twin) was supremely comfortable with plenty of space to move around in and two double beds.
We ate in Northall (where the lunch menu is a steal), Massimo, the Lobby Lounge and had drinks in Bassoon, and service throughout the hotel was friendly without being overly formal.
Room service arrives exactly on time and still warm, a feat for even much smaller hotels to pull off. Food throughout is very good, with the best assortment of breads I've ever had. Also, afternoon tea is not to be missed, nor is the blueberry eclair.
Of course, there were some minor issues, like a lack of wardrobe space for a week's worth of clothes, not enough English speaking TV channels (or DVD player) and in my humble opinion, Bassoon should really provide a food menu as well as a cocktail one, because, although their snacks are yummy, I would have loved to have a meal in there as well. But these complaints are only because everything else was so thoughtfully done, and I mean everything else, including the easiest check in and out I have ever experienced.
Location wise, it's terrific for the theatre, and in walking distance to Piccadilly. Taxis are plentiful in the area though, so it's not inconvenient to get where you need to go. Although, once you arrive at the hotel, you may not want to leave.
We've stayed in several 5 star properties in both London and New York, and The Corinthia puts all the others to shame, both in appearance and attitude.
Price wise, it is expensive. Very expensive. We booked a fantastic deal through American Express, but going forward, we've decided to compromise on our length of stay to enjoy the level of luxury the hotel and its restaurants provide.
