CORINTHIA HOTEL LONDON LAUNCHES 11 NEW SUITES

June 11th, 2018

Corinthia Hotel London launches eleven new ‘Garden’ and ‘London’ suites, available to book from 11 June 2018, offering guests a wider range of luxurious suites to choose from when staying at the flagship property. These new suites are the first product enhancement at the property since its opening seven years ago.

“We service a discerning traveller who wants something unique alongside the most up to-date technology,” says Corinthia Hotel London’s Managing Director Thomas Kochs. “It’s about an intelligent use of space.”

“We have become known for our fabulous River and Penthouse suites and seven years on from opening, we want to continue to strengthen our position and present a new product in the market,” continues Thomas. “We are a hotel that never stands still and continually upgrades our product to suit our guests’ evolving tastes and needs.”

The London Suite is inspired by a day in the capital; the light, fresh interior pays homage to modern living, with contemporary amenities and state-of-the-art facilities. Art is a key focus and featured artwork and sculptures from the Cubism era grace the 105m²dual aspect suite. The space has been designed with privacy in mind, and for guests wishing to entertain there are doorways to each functional space and the option of two further adjoining bedrooms.

The Garden Suite is designed with a nod to the quintessential British garden and overlooks a beautifully landscaped courtyard. Accents of verdant green, in soft furnishings and live planting, create a tranquil setting. The botanical colour scheme and texture runs throughout the 67m² suite encouraging guests to relax as the doors open directly into a living area with a feature fireplace and the main seating area which sweeps around it.

Designed by G.A. Design, the new suites complement the existing suites and seven penthouses which evoke an elegant residential style, with expansive outside terraces complete with exceptional and previously unseen views across the capital.

“We created a world-class, five-star luxury hotel for the 21st century in the style of a grand English home,” explains Edward Davies, Managing Director of G.A. Design London. “We set out to create two new and unique types of suites offering contemporary amenities and state of the art facilities to attract the most discerning of client. Art is a key focus of both new suite

categories, with feature artwork and sculptures. G.A have curated a set of artistic spaces which we plan to build over time into a full-blown art collection.” he adds.

G. A. Design worked hard to create spaces that feel homely, refined, understated and elegant. The new suites are grand in design, using luxurious textiles, wallcoverings, butter-soft leathers and beautiful crafted woods. All furniture has been manufactured in the UK and lighting fixtures are from Wales. A personal butler service, separate living room, oversized bed, marble bathroom with underfloor heating, built-in TV over the bathtub and a tropical rain shower are just some of the features that travellers can expect.

Garden Suites available from £1,140 and London Suites from £2,160 inclusive of VAT.

Please note, this also applies to discounts and promotions available on Corinthia.com.

All claims must be made within 24 hours of the original booking and at least 24 hours prior to the standard check-in time of the hotel.

Step 2. Your claim should be supported by the URL where the lower rate was found and a screen shot which clearly displays the date of stay, room type, same hotel, inclusions and payment conditions of the lower rate offering on the competing website. Please include your contact information (name, email and phone number).

Step 3. If we are able to verify that the lower rate found qualifies for the Best Rate Guarantee, and all other terms and conditions are met, Corinthia Hotels will pay for 100% of the room charges of your first night, and will price match the room for the rest of your stay.

6. The rate comparison will be made net of any taxes, gratuities or any other fees or charges associated with the room rate, and the lower rate must still be available at the time the hotel validates the claim.
7. The Best Rate Guarantee is void where prohibited by law. Corinthia Hotels reserves the right to modify or cancel its Best Rate Guarantee policy at any time in its sole discretion and without prior notice.
8. Corinthia Hotels has the sole right and discretion to determine the validity of any claim, including without limitation, determining that the lower rate found is genuinely available and that the claim meets all terms and conditions. In case of dispute, Corinthia Hotels' decision is final.
9. In the case of a fully prepaid rate booked through corinthia.com, Corinthia Hotels will refund the difference to your credit card, if applicable, within 30 business days of submitting your claim. Corinthia Hotels is not responsible for any fees associated with cancelling a reservation made through a different channel.
10. Best Rate Guarantee will be suspended during times where corinthia.com or certain rates are not available due to an outage, a technical issue or a circumstance beyond Corinthia Hotels' reasonable control.
11. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to rates found offline, negotiated corporate rates, group or MICE rates, opaque provider rates or rates requiring membership in a club or other organization, governmental rates, direct mail or email solicitations, rates offered by providers that do not supply the name or location of the hotel until after a reservation has been made or other rates that are not available to the general public. We reserve the right to deny a claim if the availability of the Competing Rate cannot be independently verified at the time of processing the claim.
12. The Best Rate Guarantee does not apply to packaged rates. Packaged rates include Hotel accommodations sold as part of a travel package in which the Hotel does not provide all services (including but not limited to airfare and/or car rental, tours etc.) and Hotel accommodations sold with additional amenities.
13. Corinthia Hotels may deny a claim where the difference between the rates is less than 1%.
14. If the Competing Rate is in a different currency from the rate booked on corinthia.com, the Competing Rate will be converted into the same currency as the rate offered on our website using the exchange rate as published in www.xe.com in place at the time the initial reservation was made. Discrepancies may occur between Corinthia Hotels' rate and the Competing Rate due to differences in exchange rate sources. If the rate discrepancy is solely due to exchange rate fluctuations, we reserve the right to deny the claim.
