The Timeless Charm of The Savoy Hotel

The Savoy has long been the mark of luxury hospitality in London. Setting a new standard for deluxe hotels in the city 135 years ago, The Savoy has been a magnet for the wealthy and famous wanting to delight in luxury, comfort and escapism in the heart of the Strand.

Set behind the Art Deco plaques and statue of Count Peter of Savoy, the hotel is tucked carefully away from immediate public view. The hotels’ forecourt is the only place in the UK where taxis must drop guests off from the right side of the road, allowing them to exit by the doors of the Savoy Theatre.

Despite its namesake since 1889, nothing quite prepares you for when the porter opens the door to unveil your suite. For those lucky enough to stay at a hotel like this one, can expect nothing short of a whirlwind of emotions, even for those accustomed to the luxuries of a good hotel. Timeless black and white chequered marble flooring lines the entrance of the suite and into the charming bathroom, equipped with a large waterfall shower, his and hers sinks and rolling bath tub. In the main bedroom, soft pink wallpapered walls are the focal point and compliment the hotel’s original period features and cornicing. Warm wooden furniture and sage floral armchairs make for a wonderful spot to take in the view from the room.

Checking into a Luxury King River View room, an immediately enviable view of London’s Southbank is visible. Spectacularly, these almost floor to ceiling windows act as frames for the painting-like view of London, a panoramic and simply unbeatable expanse, from East to West of the city. Peer down and people watch those below and watch as the skyline starts to sparkle when night falls.

By night, The Savoy transforms and welcomes dinner guests at Savoy Grill by Gordon Ramsay, the River Restaurant and Michelin-starred Restaurant 1890. With panoramic views across the River Thames, The River Restaurant is currently undergoing a sleek renovation where the hotel’s glorious architecture will blend with a beautiful new polished interior, designed by world renowned designer Russell Sage.

During the day, take your stay to the next level and make the most of the facilities available including the business centre or relax in the wellness area, with a swimming pool in a light-filled atrium, sauna and steam room. Enjoy views of the pool whilst you exercise at the well-equipped gym or unwind with a treatment in the spa.

For those occupying suites, chauffeurs and butlers are on hand to make your stay even more seamless.

Rates start from £675 per night based on a room only basis.
