The Corinthia's classic interior exudes just the right amount of drama: think all-white marble and a 1,000-crystal-globe chandelier in the Lobby Lounge, while the grand Victorian Ballroom, lined with huge mirrors and windows, is flooded with light.

There is a variety of drinking and dining options; from the Massimo seafood restaurant, to The Courtyard for alfresco cocktails. Make sure you nab the Royal Penthouse for your first night, with its roof terrace and panoramic London views.

Ceremony capacity: 250; Packages per person: £162

The new kid on London's luxury hotel block, The Corinthia opened last year with high ambitions to stir up the 'grand' hotel scene.

It has certainly made its mark with striking classic-meets-contemporary interiors, including a dazzling spherical, 1001-crystal chandelier in the lobby, designer restaurants and vast Espa spa.

Guests have access to the central open-air courtyard, with its 100-year-old maple trees, via the Court Room.
