Just steps away from the Thames, in the heart of London, England, I found the Corinthia Hotel. This hotel was a pure treat of delicious decadence that it not the norm for a traveler like me.
From the moment I, finally, laid eyes on this grand Victorian building I was so impressed, and relieved that I had found it. Not that it’s hard to find, at all. But a few human errors and wrong decisions, including exiting one tube stop too late and some back tracking because of a missed exit off the pedestrian bridge over the Thames, made this experienced traveler feel a bit like an amateur. And with no one to blame but myself, I was just that much more relieved when the Corinthia finally came into view.
