If you’re searching for a base in the heart of London with all the mod cons, a sense of history and breath-taking views, look no further than the supremely grand Corinthia Hotel
Corinthia Hotel London is rated among London’s finest 5-star luxury hotels. Combining traditional grandeur with modern freshness, this luxuriously redesigned Victorian destination is ideally located in the heart of London, a short walk from many of the city’s major attractions.
Dating from 1885, the building spent fifty years as the prestigious Hôtel Métropole, before it was taken over by the Government in 1936 and used as Ministry of Defence offices. The magnificent architecture has been expertly restored and brought vividly back to life with contemporary design, the highest quality materials and fittings and wonderful interiors, created in partnership with world-class designers, craftsmen, artists and architects. The grand Victorian exterior now houses fully reconstructed elegant and contemporary interiors set around an inner foyer and garden, two restaurants, a luxury spa, a concept cocktail bar, boardroom meeting facilities and a beautifully refurbished grand ballroom. There are 294 intricately designed guest accommodations, including 40 luxurious suites and seven Penthouses – some of which are located over two storeys, inside historic turrets, and feature private lifts and terraces.
These opulent Penthouses are the Hotel’s crowning glory… From their private terraces Corinthia guests enjoy unmatched views across some of London’s most recognised landmarks, including the Thames, the London Eye, Trafalgar Square and Whitehall.
Open to all guests, the heartbeat of the hotel is its Crystal Moon Lounge. The space offers a residential feel enhanced by an eclectic mix of furniture and bespoke artworks. The soaring dome in the centre is adorned with the pioneering Full Moon chandelier created by Parisian designer Chafik Gasmi and produced by Baccarat, the prestigious French crystal manufacturer. The Full Moon, composed of 1,001 crystal baubles, is the grand focal point of the main hotel area. Crystal Moon Lounge guests can take a traditional afternoon tea or enjoy an evening cocktail.
The magnificent Victorian Ballroom has been fully restored to its former glory showcasing the stunning original grand columns and majestic coving. Natural light which pours in from three large windows reflects in the full length, antique mirrors.
