Spacious suites with sweeping views of the Thames, gin and tonics made with locally distilled gin, and personal butlers to draw you a bath: You can experience all of this amid an oasis of calm in the heart of London.

Welcome to the Corinthia London. Housed within a 19th-century Victorian building and featuring the largest rooms available in the city, the Corinthia is a luxury hotel that feels like a familiar grand English home. Throughout the spacious public and private spaces, you’ll find warm woods, butter-soft leathers, and rich textiles, along with a feeling of understated elegance.

With all of the amenities the 21st century requires—from state-of-the-art connectivity in the rooms to personalized treatments at the award-winning spa ESPA Life at Corinthia—this is the newest crown jewel in the Corinthia Hotels’ family of uplifting destinations.

Savor Modern Tea and Star-Chef Cuisine
Afternoon tea in London is a must—and here, an antique Champagne trolley initiates daily tea service in the elegant Crystal Moon Lounge (because sometimes “tea” means “bubbles”). For traditionalists, specially commissioned mirrored teacups and striped saucers designed by Richard Brendon can be filled with a range of fine teas, including the hotel’s own house infusion, prepared by tea sommelier Ondrej Herda. Feeling peckish? Choose from a selection of finger sandwiches, including truffled egg mayo and watercress on spinach bread; scones with Devonshire clotted cream and homemade jam; and creative pastries and cakes by head pastry chef Lois Carbonnet, including the summer favorite—a rhubarb and strawberry tartlet.

Then move on to the hotel’s amazing dining. Open since last fall, Kerridge’s Bar & Grill is Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge’s first London restaurant, and here he has created a menu that celebrates traditional British cuisine with a modern flair. Think elevated classic comfort food, like fish and chips made with the finest local fish and served with pease pudding, tartare, and a Matson spiced sauce. Or choose the Cotswold White chicken, which comes with braised gem lettuce, pickled lemon, and soft polenta. It’s all served in a classic atmosphere, with dark green walls and burgundy banquettes designed by David Collins Studio.
Enjoy the Suite Life
When it’s time to retire for the evening, consider one of Corinthia’s new Garden Suites. Inspired by botanicals, with potted plants and a verdant color scheme, the airy suites evoke the peacefulness of a British country garden. The first enhancement to the property since it opened seven years ago, these new suites were recently introduced in order to meet guests’ evolving needs; in this case, a taste of nature in the city. Along with greens and organic textures throughout the interiors, each of the Garden Suites overlooks a beautifully landscaped courtyard.
Explore the Heart of London
Set on the north bank of the River Thames, Corinthia London makes an ideal home base. Historic Trafalgar Square and The National Gallery are minutes away; so, too, is Westminster Abbey, with its 900 years of royal weddings and coronations. You’ll find theater and shopping just around the corner along Covent Garden’s cobblestone streets, plus cafés, pubs, and restaurants. It’s all a short walk away, but you can also take two wheels. New this summer, Corinthia Hotel London has partnered with iconic British bicycle company Brompton to offer a brand-new fleet of its signature folding electric bicycles to guests—the perfect way to explore England’s beautiful capital city.
