To make up for the lack of time I’ve had to prepare a post this week, I thought you might like to see inside some of the rooms at London’s Corinthia Hotel. Sorry, I’m not inviting you there for a clandestine kiss and cuddle – but I do have some lovely images of the very best suites to show you.
I was recently treated to a private view of two of the penthouses as part of a fashion presentation hosted by Colin McDowell for London Fashion Week. Someone with £10,000 to spend on a posh night in London, or an expensive ice cream cone canapé habit, may perhaps be tempted by one of the designerly kitted out suites.
The duplex Musician’s Penthouse comes with its own Steinway grand piano, along with harmonizing musical features and Liberace-worthy lighting. In addition to the internal gallery, there’s a contemporary style roof terrace featuring an empty alcove and a rather forlorn looking ashtray, which offers spectacular views over London’s skyline – with vistas encompassing the London Eye, St Paul’s Cathedral and Big Ben. The wood panelled Writer’s Penthouse even has a secret library door (and views down the Embankment to the Savoy for inspiration).
A design committee load of thought, effort and £££ have obviously gone into the floral arrangements and lighting throughout the hotel. The bathrooms are as swanky as one would expect. It made me wonder who stays in such rooms?
