Corinthia Hotel London opens reservations

London’s newest 5-star luxury hotel, Corinthia Hotel London, announced that reservations are now open to the public. The first guests will be part of history-in-the-making as this 21st century grand hotel opens its doors in April 2011. The property is ideally located in the heart of London on Whitehall Place, at the apex of arts, culture, business and politics.

Corinthia Hotel London is the result of a meticulous reconstruction of what was originally an imposing Victorian-era Grand Hotel. Now reborn to a new standard of craftsmanship and service, Corinthia London features 294 intricately designed guest accommodations, including 43 luxurious suites. Opulently sized rooms and suites include the 470m2 Royal Suite, the largest in London, combining grandeur and innovation with residential comforts. There are seven signature suites, sumptuously appointed over two storeys, served by their own internal lifts, and located inside historic turrets featuring terraces with views across some of London’s most iconic landmarks. Each signature suite is inspired by a great figure in British history including a musician, inventor and writer.

Corinthia Hotel London will be a world-class dining and leisure destination for Londoners, as well as visitors. A beautifully refurbished grand ballroom takes centre stage and includes restored Victorian features. The hotel’s main restaurant, The Northall, celebrates the best of British artisanal produce. The menu offers the highest quality of raw, seasonal and sustainable ingredients from local sources and an organic focused wine list. The Northall’s beautiful interiors and flexible menus provide for every dining occasion, including the great British tradition of High Tea, perfect for early evening pre-theatre dining.

In addition, the hotel features two striking venues conceived by world-renowned interior design practice David Collins Studio. The musically inspired destination bar, Bassoon, will serve both molecular cocktails and colonial inspired drinks from its boutique spirits library. Massimo Restaurant and Oyster Bar, headed by Italian chef patron Massimo Riccioli, offers an exciting menu specialising in fish with a strong focus on daily catches and the highest quality ingredients.

The award-winning international spa company ESPA will raise the bar on spa excellence with its new flagship ESPA Life at Corinthia. This pioneering, next-generation spa is spread over 3300m2 on four floors and will offer never-before-seen, fully integrative lifestyle solutions and luxury spa treatments. Legendary colourist and hairdresser Daniel Galvin OBE will open a second London salon within the hotel. In a unique twist, a private room in the salon will offer a library of over 25,000 films for VIP clients from the performing arts and film industry to use as a reference for their own hairstyles, colour and make-up. Other firsts for the hotel include a Harrods-inspired luxury lifestyle concept store in the main lobby.

“After years of meticulous creation and restoration, we are delighted that Corinthia Hotel London is now at its final stage of completion. The hotel will be a dynamic London landmark where the past meets the future,” says Corinthia Hotel London General Manager Matthew Dixon. “We look forward to welcoming guests from around the world, who will find the reassurance of true luxury, but also a 5-star experience with a contemporary edge. In April the eyes of the world will be upon London in celebration of the royal wedding, and we look forward to being the newest addition to the city’s iconic landscape.”
