“London, without peer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

I've just stayed for 10 days at the Corinthia Hotel and it's without doubt my favorite hotel in London. I've usually stayed at Covent Garden Hotel, the Knightsbridge or Browns, and the Corinthia matches and sometimes exceeds these (wonderful) hotels in every way.
The hotel itself and the public rooms are gorgeous and welcoming; the decor/design is understated but luxurious.
The rooms are beautiful, with attention to every detail; brilliant bed + bedding, fluffy pillows, espresso machine, large walk in closet, bathrooms with awesome shower and gigantic tub (with TV;) heated floors/towel racks, multiple lighting options, nighttime delivery of water and chocolate, complimentary wireless throughout and the restaurants are first rate, with room service prepared to accommodate any request at any hour of the day.
The only issue I had on my stay was rectified by the top notch staff; I had issues with connecting to the wireless when I checked in which persisted for the first 24 hours. The amazing Katarina, the evening duty manager, moved me into a room which connected immediately, and as a bonus, the room (fourth floor) was sunny and bright (my first room on the first floor, was gorgeous but without much natural light.) In fact, Katarina stayed very attentive throughout my stay; between her; Sahil the magnificent concierge; and Alan my favorite doorman, I had a wonderful time.
I was on a very punishing work schedule so everything running smoothly at the hotel was paramount to my productivity.
In addition the restaurants are wonderful, delicious food and perfect for meetings. The hotel is a short walk from the theatre district and the Embankment is next store, with a tube station just across the street - lastly if you are interested in being pampered a car/driver will drop you, per gratis, to local spots on a first come/first serve basis.
I'm planning to be in London on business, more frequently, and this where I intend to stay from henceforth.

Room Tip: Ask that your room offers natural light, and check the wireless connection!

I was so glad to hear that you had such an enjoyable stay and it is very interesting for me to hear your feedback as a long staying guest. What’s more, it is fantastic to learn that we are undoubtedly your favourite London hotel.

I took great pleasure in reading your review and the qualities which stood out to you about Corinthia Hotel London. As you mention, when you have such a busy work schedule it is very important that the other aspects of your life run smoothly. I was delighted to hear that Katarina and the team looked after you so well & I am sure they will be happy to hear that you had such an enjoyable stay. The hotel is very centrally located and I am glad that this suited your plans.

Next time you visit, I hope you will have time to experience our ESPA Life at Corinthia spa. The spa’s thermal floor is fantastic and is complimentary to all our guests. We shall look forward to welcoming you back to the hotel again shortly.

The Corinthia is an immaculate hotel in a fantastic location. A bit of a celebrity hotel, Rihanna stays there when she visits Boston, and while I was there Prince Charles himself was in the hotel. The lobby is spotless, with staff waiting to assist you at any turn. There is a lovely large lobby where afternoon tea is served (I suggest you indulge, it's a great experience, and for those of you who can eat and drink quite a bit, both the tea and sandwiches are unlimited).

My room was wonderful, even though it over looked the lobby (no view other than other hotel windows), it still let in a ton of light and was dead quiet. Room service was great, with the people delivering the food very friendly and open, always asking me if there was anything else they could do for me before they left.

Just a note - if you have clothing dry cleaned or pressed, be sure you clarify when you want your item of clothing back to your room. In one instance I thought I'd asked for Same Day, but it turned out I hadn't noted that clearly and it came back the next day.

The location of this hotel is fantastic. You're walking distance from Trafalgar Square, Parliment Square (Westminster Abbey, Palace of Westminster, etc.), Big Ben, The Eye of London, Buckingham Palace, Royal Festival Hall and more.

Last but not least, this hotel has the best bathrooms/restrooms I've experienced in quite some time. Very spacious, with all new hardware and lovely amenities like a TV over the bathtub and heated floors! An excellent way to relax after a day of exploring London!

I was delighted to read your glowing review of Corinthia London and to learn that you have visited us several times.

I am glad you enjoyed our modern & spacious rooms, as well as the heated floors in the bathrooms which are indeed a lovely feature. As you mentioned, our closets are rather large, walk-in style closets. With London's many fantastic shops a short walk away, this room feature is often well received. I am also happy to hear that you enjoyed the nearby Jubilee festivities and the flotilla, for which we were so fortunately located. Thank you for your wonderful feedback, I do hope to welcome you to Corinthia London again soon.

A true 5 star experience from check in to check out (which is variable based on your own arrival and departure time). Beautiful decor, modern but not minimal, very comfortable rooms with well thought out amenities (love the heated floor in the bathrooms). Have stayed 3 times now, and always have been accommodated in the rooms with the big walk in closet which is big enough to be a dressing room. Last visit was the weekend of the Jubilee festivities and the flotilla. Perfect in every regard. Oh - and the Spa is fantastic.
