T reat yourself to a stay at the legendary Corinthia London. Built in 1885, the Corinthia was one of the largest hotels in all of Europe, and today remains one of London’s “grand dames.” Renowned for being Winston Churchill’s head- quarters during World War I, the hotel was restored and brought to its current splendor in 2011. Located just steps from the Thames Embankment, Whitehall, and Trafalgar Square, many of London’s major attractions are just a short walk away. A guest’s first impression is of old-world elegance and splendor, but this hotel also delivers up-to-date perfection in all areas of hospitality; with outstanding service, a collection of accommoda- tions fit for royalty, award-winning restaurants with top chefs, and a state-of-the-art ESPA Life Spa. The hotel offers two outstanding dining options. At Northall Restaurant, award-winning executive chef André Garrett cele- brates British cuisine with the freshest ingredients in season. Chef Garrett blends his French and European style using local farms and shores, including caviar sourced from Exmoor, Britain’s first caviar producer seasoned with Welsh and Cornish salts. Tom Kerridge is practically a household name in the UK, with two Michelin-star restaurants under his belt. At Kerridge’s Bar and Grill the atmosphere is relaxed, and the fare is classic and hearty. Entrees, like the beer-brined Cotswold white chicken with Jerusalem artichoke, malt glazed thigh nugget, winter truffle and vin jaune sauce, and the English lamb cutlet with haggis, baby tur- nips, shallot fondant and malt vinegar ketchup are exceptional.
What would a visit to London be without Afternoon Tea? Bacca- rat crystal champagne flutes, cus- tom-designed china, and a tea sommelier create the perfect ambi- ance when matched with Laurent- Perrier La Cuvée Brut Champagne, Severn and Wye smoked salmon, organic strawberry and rhubarb jam, and the finale - salted caramel pecan and chocolate mousse. ESPA Life Spa invites guests to enjoy private suites, a futuristic- looking thermal floor with an in- door swimming pool, a vitality pool, an amphitheater sauna, ice fountain, marble-heated lounge chairs, and private sleep pods. The techno gym is open 24/7 and offers rehab in addition to personal train- ers. Whether business or pleasure, Corinthian London checks all the boxes and you’ll depart pining for your next opportunity to visit. Corinthia London –PAULA KOFFSKY
