The Corinthia Whitehall is a very classy and modern establishment. I had to spend a night in London recently and a friend had suggested that I stay at the Corinthia and I must say that I was pleased that I did. The lady at check-in and the concierge were most helpful and made me feel very welcome.
There was dim sum available for the buffet breakfast and that was definitely scrumptious.
The only negative was the set up of some things in the room and bathroom were a bit awkward. From the set up of the tea/coffee things, you were definitely not being encouraged to make yourself a cup of tea. The towelling robe in the bathroom was also quite inconvenient.
All in all though, a good experience and I will recommend this hotel

Thank you for posting a review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. We are delighted to read that you were offered a warm and friendly welcome at check-in and by the Concierge team, who always pride themselves on going the extra mile to exceed every guest's expectations. The extensive buffet breakfast in The Northall is a great way to start the day, with many dishes to please every palate, especially the recently introduced Dim Sum. We very much appreciate your kind feedback, the Nespresso coffee machine can also provide hot water for tea, we will make our guests are informed when they are shown to their rooms. Thank you for your recommendation and we look forward to greeting you as a returning guest on your next visit to London.

Kind regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

We were part of a group, slight delay on check in (at 1300hrs), some of the group's rooms were ready and some weren't, as we had a set itinerary this was a little annoying, the receptionist kept saying official check in was at 3, not overly apologetic and we had no where to freshen up for a couple of hours, and ate our afternoon tea without the chance to freshen up,because of this I rated the hotel very good instead of excellent. The Northall bar service was hit and miss and had to ask for our drinks on more than one occasion, we all had a set meal and the food was good, again, there was a wait and the sauce for my steak arrived far too late ( we had all pre-ordered so not difficult)
The rooms were lovely, very clean, no water on arrival and a bit bemused by a plate of three apples and knives and forks on the table, however turn down service provided the water.
The bathroom was fantastic, double sinks, shower and a fitted LED TV on the wall at the base of the bath, pure luxury! the AC was quiet and effective. would love to stay here again but must sort out the service and reception welcome could be improved.

Room Tip: Our room was very well located, so can't comment.

Thank you for posting a review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay overall, and liked the beautifully appointed rooms, and huge bathrooms with walk in rain showers and big bath tubs. We are equally disconcerted by the points you raise, we very much appreciate your feedback, and your review has already been forwarded to the Front of House and The Northall management teams. We very much hope this did not mar your stay, as this is not our normally exceptional service standard and benchmark, and we are looking forward to welcoming you and your party on your next visit to London.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.

We had a spectacular time staying at the Corinthia Hotel. The location was great - basically within walking distance to almost everything and very close to a tube station and a river boat pier. We were there to celebrate a very special occasion and the Hotel upgraded our room to a junior suite at no extra charge. The suite included a large bedroom with beautiful built in shelves/cabinets, a king size bed, a dressing room/closet, and an enormous bathroom. All the staff were friendly and very accommodating. The concierge staff were very helpful, and their desk was always well staffed. In particular, Sebastian could not do enough to help with plans and arrangements. He was very enthusiatic, had great ideas, and patiently explained everything. There were usually taxis waiting right outside the door, but if not, the door men were quite resourceful at getting a taxi there within a few minutes.

The only negative: The continental breakfast and any other snacks, etc. served at the hotel were ridiculously expensive, even for hotels. After suffering sticker shock on our first morming, we found a nice cafe right around the corner that had much more reasonable prices.

Some sightseeing highlights: Hyde Park, river boat tour, Tower of London, Harrod's, Oxford Street shopping area. The Borough Market was amazing and not too far from the Tower of London. The full market is open Wednesdays through Saturdays. Hyde Park is fantastic and quite large. There is a bike sharing station right near the Wellington Arch, which we noticed after we left the park. Riding bikes into the park would be a great way to explore it. Buckingham Palace is fun to see, but the Changing of the Guard was very, very crowded.

When we come back to London, we will definitely stay at the Corninthia.

Our experience staying at the Corinthia Hotel was amazing, the hotel is tucked away from the busy streets of London, yet it is within walking distance to many tourist attractions. The hotel staff is great, very friendly and always ready to please their customer. We highly recommend the Corinthia and we look forward to staying there again upon our next trip to London.

This is our second stay here and we were in a Deluxe Junior Suite. It had a nice small balcony that faced the inner courtyard. Compared to our last stay which was in a regular room, this room was huge, especially the bathroom and walk-in closet.

We had a black-tie affair to attend so we had the hotel press our suits and shirts, which they did a splendid job of. The only quip that I have is that for a hotel of its caliber, offering to press a garment free-of-charge would be a nice touch. I didn't like having to pay an extra 100 quid after already paying what we did for the room. This is the only issue I had, however, as everything else was up to the wonderful standards we had experienced on our first stay here.

We were given a complementary bottle of champagne on arrival which was a nice touch, and also fresh fruit and bottled water each evening.

We had cocktails in the Bassoon Bar again. This is by far the most amazing cocktail lounge I have ever been in. Having aperitifs before our party was so nice, being all dressed to the nines.

We also had Sunday brunch at the Northall, and it was amazing. We were not rushed, and the food was impeccable.

We will definitely return. Keep in mind that this is not a cheap hotel, but the service is what makes it stand out!

Room Tip: Depends on whether you want a view or not.

Thank you for taking the time to post a great review of your stay at Corinthia Hotel London, it certainly sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. The Deluxe Junior Suite is rather special, with huge walk-in closets, large rooms with seating areas, huge marble bathrooms, balconies over-looking The Courtyard, and a whole host of complimentary amenities, including the fastest 1Gb Wi-Fi, turndown treats, ESPA toiletries, Nespresso coffee machines, and bottled mineral water as standard. We agree with you, and think the brilliant bar tenders in Bassoon have created some of the finest cocktails in London. We are delighted you then enjoyed the Sunday Jazz Brunch in The Northall, with a menu to please every palate from Eggs Benedict to a roast with all the trimmings. We are very disappointed that we did not exceed your expectations regarding the pressing expenses, we hope this did not mar your stay, as we are very much looking forward to welcoming you to Corinthia London for many special occasions to come.

Kind Regards, Matthew Dixon, General Manager.
