Corinthia London – Westminster, SW1
A luxury hotel for the 21st century, with the river and central London at its door. It doesn’t matter which entrance you use – Northumberland Avenue or Whitehall Place – you’ll be struck by the wow-factor elegance of the Corinthia’s Crystal Moon Lounge, lit by a dramatic Baccarat chandelier and a must for afternoon tea. Originally built in the 1880s as the Metropole Hotel and later home to government departments, it opened in its present incarnation in 2011 after a super-lavish refit. Now there’s plenty to impress: modern British cuisine at The Northall, with its own magnificent bar; Michelin-starred chef Tom Kerridge’s first London venture, Kerridge’s Bar & Grill, with a menu of classic dishes; al fresco drinking and dining in The Garden. Corinthia London also boasts some of the city’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. There is a state-of-the-art fitness centre, sleep pods, an amphitheatre sauna, steam rooms and a vitality pool.
