Corinthia London’s Penthouse Suites Take Home Top European Design Award

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

London, United Kingdom – Reported by Elite Traveler, the Private Jet Lifestyle Magazine

The marvelous penthouse suites at the Corinthia Hotel in London have been recognized among the best in the world at the prestigious European Hotel Design Awards. Four of the six globe-dotting finalists short-listed for the Best Suites category were penthouse suites at the London hotel, with the Whitehall Penthouse emerging as the clear winner, and sole UK victor, at the international celebration of European design and architectural excellence. The Whitehall Penthouse is one of seven tailored penthouses launched by Corinthia Hotel London earlier this year.

Judges felt the Whitehall Penthouse combined “the best use of quality finishes, with a design that reflected an old English charm with a contemporary interpretation.” They were particularly impressed by the suite’s “dynamic double height space, delicate balcony detail and breath-taking terrace.”

Built within the turrets of the grand Victorian building and designed by GA Design, the seven penthouses are all lavishly attached to expansive outside terraces complete with open fires and astonishing view points across the capital, unattainable until now. The duplex penthouses are designed in a residential style each with distinct personalities and unique bespoke fittings.

The Whitehall Penthouse, marked by its dark, lime-washed timbers, is a powerful yet comfortable space. Sitting opposite the built-in library, around the fireplace or at the large ministerial desk, guests can enjoy decanted spirits mixed from the bespoke drinks cabinet. On the terrace, a life-size chessboard offers a break from work and a chance to enjoy views of a close by neighbor, British Parliament.

The other penthouse suites at the Corinthia London are based on themes such as royalty, writers, musicians, explorers, actors and Lady Emma Hamilton, a lover of Lord Nelson whose monument sits atop the column in Trafalgar Square, directly visible from the related penthouse’s external terraces.
