Corinthia London

A contemporary London gem
Perched on Whitehall Place just south of Trafalgar Square, Corinthia London is a chic, city-center retreat that might just make you feel like a visiting royal. 

The 283 spacious guest rooms are contemporary in look yet elegantly appointed, and you’ll discover great cityscape views along with sumptuous bathrooms outfitted with heated marble floors.

In addition to its dramatic lobbies and public spaces, the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel also houses the stunningly gorgeous 35,000-square-foot ESPA Life spa, which includes a unique amphitheater sauna, indoor swimming pool and Jacuzzi, steam room and ice fountains, plus one of the city’s best hotel gyms.

Indulging in the Four-Star hotel’s room service is definitely worthwhile, but if you’re looking to get out and about, be sure to visit the hotel’s ground floor Bassoon Bar. It evokes the Jazz Age with its piano player and art deco detailing, but make no mistake, the drinks are decidedly 21st century.
Our Inspector's Highlights
  • Don't miss a chance to dine at the newly opened Kerridge's Bar & Grill, the first London restaurant from BBC TV chef Tom Kerridge. Slide into one of the stylish venue's burgundy banquettes to dine on comforting British classics with an upscale twist, like Essex beetroot salad with creamed goat cheese or hazelnut-crusted cod with Irish-style kale.
  • The London hotel benefits from a private open-air courtyard just off of its lobby lounge, complete with olive trees, stone fireplaces and cushioned sofas.
  • The stunning four-floor ESPA Life spa can be found inside the luxury hotel, with expert therapists, bespoke treatments and a thermal floor to which hotel guests have complimentary access.
  • Even the standard rooms at the Four-Star hotel are enormous by the city’s standards, including white Italian marble-clad bathrooms with separate shower and tub, wooden foyers, plush beds and plenty of closet space.
  • You’ll be sure to get a good workout in at the hotel, which has a large and professional fitness facility as part of the ESPA Life center.
Things to Know
  • The property is situated just next to the Embankment tube top. Tourist crowds are heavy nearby and across the bridge, but thankfully the streets directly around the London hotel are quiet.

  • The Four-Star hotel has an expert and a knowledgeable concierge team, ready to book you in to the hottest restaurants and speak fluidly about the city.
The Rooms
  • The guest rooms at Corinthia London are incredibly spacious and comfortable, with residential touches and luxurious furnishings.
  • The standard room comes with a wood-clad foyer, with a large carpeted bedroom just ahead and a spacious bathroom off the hallway coated in white Italian marble. The heated bathroom floors come in handy during the chilly winter months, as do those built-in TVs above the tub that beckon you to soak a little longer. 
  • The bedrooms feature pillow-top mattresses, down-filled pillows and soft all-white sheets, accented with a wingback headboard and jewel-toned throw pillows.
  • High ceilings and a soft buttery color palette are soothing on the eyes, accented by colorful glass vases, framed modern artwork and arched chrome lamps.
  • For the ultimate escape, check into on of the luxury London hotel's two-story penthouses. Boasting roof access with a furnished outdoor terrace and 24-hour butler service, each of the seven spaces is uniquely decorated to provide you with your own personalized pied-à-terre. 
The Look
  • Corinthia London features a luxurious Parisian-influenced design style that blends modern lines with traditional touches and dramatic patterns.
  • A ring-patterned gray-and-white marble floor is found on the reception level and along the perimeter of the two-story lobby lounge, mirroring the ring-shaped contemporary chandeliers made of glowing glass cylinders.
  • Bountiful bouquets of fuchsia moth orchids add brightness to the spaces, as do lime yellow throw pillows and armchairs in the lobby lounge.
  • The mixture of buttery tufted leather armchairs, wingback armchairs with nailhead trim and velvety slope chairs is interesting and lively, creating a gallery-like space for a well-heeled crowd.
