Corinthia Hotel London

London’s newest 5-star luxury hotel has just recently opened its doors following an extensive reconstruction costing in excess of £300m. The elegant building has returned to its roots as it was first opened as a hotel in 1886 and operated as The Metropole until it was taken over by the MOD in 1936. After the war it was used as offices until it was purchased in 2008 by Corinthia Hotels

This is now the eighth jewel in the international Corinthia Hotels family-owned crown and offers a choice of 294 beautifully designed and appointed rooms and suites, a choice of restaurants and a huge 3330m2 spa area that is spread over 4 floors, plus many other features. The suites – that are linked to important figures from British history - offer fabulous views and private terraces that provide unrivalled views across some of London’s most easily recognised landmarks including the London Eye, Trafalgar Square and Whitehall.

Working with Ardmore Construction to ensure that the pumping solution would meet the most exacting of standards, Grundfos Pumps Ltd supplied a complete turnkey solution that included a wide range of energy efficient pumps from the TPE range of centrifugal pumps that have proved themselves to be so reliable in a wide range of commercial hot or cold water circulation applications. The Grundfos MAGNA circulator also featured in the final M&E design as did a large Hydro MPC-E booster set – so vitally important in ensuring that there is always water available to meet demand. Pressurisation sets and a range of ancillary items completed this part of the project.

Corinthia Hotels have built a reputation for delivering top-class hotels that deliver discreet service by incorporating their vision with the local architecture and each city’s unique culture. Their latest London flagship offers a true reflection of seeing this ambition come to life.
