Corinthia Hotels is showing off new details of its planned five-star luxury hotel in London. The hotel is being built in central London inside a Victorian building overlooking Trafalgar Square and the River Thames.
The Victoria exterior houses a modern interior with an inner foyer and garden, two restaurants, cocktail bar, spa, meeting facilities and a grand ballroom. Chef Massimo Riccioli, owner of La Rosetta in Rome is creating a fish and seafood specialty restaurant at the Corinthia and a new wave British restaurant will provide all-day dining. There will be 294 rooms including 45 suites. The two-bedroom Royal Suite will be over 5,050 square feet and will be the largest in London. Some suites are located on duplex floors inside turrets and feature private staircases.
The hotel is due to open in early 2011 and will become the world's ninth Corinthia hotel.
