Check out this week’s Hotel of the Week: Corinthia London – Westminster, SW1
A luxury hotel for the 21st century, with the river and central London at its door. Whichever entrance you use – Northumberland Avenue or Whitehall Place – you’ll be struck by the wow-factor elegance of Corinthia’s Crystal Moon Lounge, lit by a dramatic Baccarat chandelier and a must for afternoon tea, particularly the new summer-themed selection.
Originally built in the 1880s, it opened in its present incarnation in 2011 after a super-lavish refit. Now there’s plenty to impress: modern British cuisine at André Garrett’s The Northall (temporarily open for breakfast only), with its own magnificent bar; Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge’s first London venture, Kerridge’s Bar & Grill (now open for lunch and dinner), with a menu of elevated classic dishes; al fresco drinking and dining in The Garden which also offers an extensive, carefully curated cigar menu; and the destination Bassoon Bar.
In anticipation of warmer weather, the hotel has recently launched The Garden, a unique alfresco dining experience offering guests the opportunity to indulge in a Provençale-inspired menu by executive chef André Garrett, alongside a special selection of summer wines and cocktails.
Corinthia can also boast London’s most spacious hotel bedrooms (there are 283 sumptuous rooms, suites and penthouses), as well as a multi-award-winning spa covering four entire floors.
Doubles from £552
Perfectly positioned in the heart of London, Corinthia Hotel is just steps from sights including Trafalgar Square, Embankment, Westminster and The London Eye.
Afternoon tea in the hotel’s elegant Crystal Moon Lounge, which includes seasonal finger sandwiches, freshly baked scones, pastries, cakes and Champagne.
The hotel’s in-house florist, By Appointment Only Design, is on hand to create beautiful bouquets of seasonal flowers for guests to take away.
Dating from 1885, the building spent fifty years as the prestigious Hôtel Métropole before being taken over to provide offices for the Ministry of Defence in 1936.
