The Savoy Hotel London
The hotel is situated just off the Strand five minutes from Charing Cross mainline and underground station and in the heart of London’s bustling West End, Theatre-land, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and some of London’s best shopping areas are all nearby. The rear of the hotel overlooks the Thames.
A British icon since 1889, The Savoy has once again taken its place on the world stage after over a £100 million restoration. The hotel seamlessly blends elements of the original and the new while the stunning English Edwardian and Art Deco interiors sparkle with timeless elegance and glamour.
The Savoy hotel is an imposing cream coloured building with a very grand entrance set back from the Strand, in the heart of London. The lobby is very large and is elegantly furnished and decorated with the use of elegant marbles and dark wood. A large and comfortable seating area lies in front of the large reception desk. An elegant staircase leads on to the bar area where clients can enjoy a snack and a great english afternoon tea. The Savoy continues to live up to its reputation as a bastion of English exclusivity.
The 268 guestrooms and suites are the last word in style, luxury and discreet technology with stunning views of London and the River Thames. The rooms are decorated in pale colours, they are light and airy, with sixty rooms commanding magnificent views over the river thames. The well-appointed marble bathrooms all feature separate walk-in showers with the famous Savoy rain showerheads and are finished with large chrome fittings and Miller Harris amenities. Nine ‘signature suites’ have been styled after nine of The Savoy’s most high profile guests while a newly created 2-bedroom Royal Suite is truly a suite fit for a King.
As would be expected from a hotel whose first chef was the legendary Auguste Escoffier, The Savoy’s selection of restaurants is legendary. The inspired cuisine of chef/patron Marcus Wareing can be enjoyed in the Michelin starred Savoy Grill and the more informal Banquette. Legendary bartender Harry Craddock’s classic cocktails are still served in the newly renovated American Bar and the new Beaufort Bar offers one of the finest selections of Champagne in the city. The Savoy has also played host to many historic events and the restored Banqueting and Private Rooms will once again see the great and the good return to The Savoy.
From palatial meeting rooms to the facilities in the Fitness Gallery, The Savoy is truly an exceptional hotel.
