The capital’s finest 5-star resort hotel, the Corinthia Hotel London was originally built in 1885 as a hotel and was a favourite haunt of King Edward VII. Between 1936 to 2007 it served as the Air Ministry and Ministry of Defence, before being luxuriously refurbished and reopened in 2011 as the Corinthia Hotel London. Providing a luxurious destination, the Corinthia Hotel London has British and Italian restaurants with Michelin-starred chefs, The Northall bar, Bassoon cocktail bar, lounge with outside terrace, hair and beauty salon by Daniel Galvin, and a spa and wellness centre, run by ESPA: rated by Conde Nast Traveller as the UK’s best hotel spa.
Internally linked to the hotel, the adjoining Portland stone building at 10 Whitehall Place was built in 1910-1914 as a grand Italianate government building for the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food. It was from this building that Winston Churchill announced rationing during WWII, Margaret Thatcher conducted her ‘Cod Wars’ with Iceland, John Gummer mishandled the BSE epidemic, and Edwina Currie caused controversy in 1988 over salmonella in eggs and her affair with John Major.
In 2007 10 Whitehall Place became surplus to government requirements and was transformed in 2010-2011 into the Corinthia Hotel London: Private Residences providing 12 ultra-prime dressed residences, benefitting from 5-star hotel room services and internal access to the Corinthia and its amenities.
