London’s River Thames is lined with some grand old buildings, including the grand Ministry of Defense building which was once the hub of espionage during World War II. Built in 1885 at the height of Queen Victoria’s empire, this landmark edifice has fly-on-the-wall views of Britain’s ever-changing capital city. Now defunct, their cover blown, the undercover agents have moved on, giving Corinthia Hotels the opportunity to create a new flagship luxury hotel in London’s epicenter. Situated on Whitehall Place, SW1 it is within strolling distance of most London attractions including Trafalgar Square and the London Eye.
The Spirit of Corinthia Hotels has gradually crept across the former enemy territory opening luxury hotels in St Petersburg, Tripoli, Khartoum and other colorful cities of culture, finally reaching London, which will be its flagship luxury hotel.
Corinthia Hotels work hard to bring an atmosphere of boutique to their opulent hotels, and their aim is to become the world’s premier luxury hotel group. Think gold-standard luxury and Mediterranean hospitality in exquisite, individually designed hotels. Due to open in April, the first guests to this grand hotel will be part of history-in-the-making, although it’s soft opening to host a pre- BAFTA awards breakfast allowed Colin Firth (Academy award winner for the King’s Speech) to be among the first to approve the historic venue.
