Why we choose The Savoy

This is the Rolls Royce of hotels; glamour and grandeur from top to toe

  • The best address in London, making you part of the ‘it’ scene
  • Recently refurbished, enhancing its starry Art Deco past with an opulent new world luster

What you need to know about the hotel

The Edwardian and Art Deco interiors sparkle, given a new polish for the 21st century

  • The Royal Suite, complete with dedicated staff, is truly fit for a king
  • Between the rooftop indoor swimming pool and the indulgent spa, this is pure heavenly perfection
  • Take a masterclass in anything from cocktail making to floral design
  • Let the concierge arrange a romantic boat trip for you on the Thames.

Built by impresario Richard D’Oyly Cart with profits from his Gilbert and Sullivan operas, the Savoy opened in August 1889. This authentic heritage has had a recent upgrade, with extensive renovations to bring this old lady into the twenty-first century. The famed Art Deco fittings are still there, but now enhanced by discreet technology and modern conveniences like the Vita Audio iPod docking stations and Loewe LCD televisions.

Service is as polished as ever, with butlers on call ready to help out with everything from wake-up trays, shopping, and in-room dining to getting hold of that elusive theater ticket.

Where is it and what's nearby

Conveniently located in London’s West End, The Savoy is ideally situated on the Strand, backing up to the Thames

  • Close to the bright lights of the Theater District, and handy for must-sees like Westminster Abbey and Buckingham Palace
  • About 25 miles from London’s Heathrow Airport: suite bookings enjoy round trip airport transfers
  • Guests have access to the three 18-hole courses of the Wentworth Club in Ascot

The very glitzy Savoy is located on the Strand, overlooking the Thames, just a short wander to the glamour of Theatreland and London’s upscale shopping streets of Bond Street and Regent Street.

Everything you might want to do or see in London is in easy reach. Your butler will help organise an itinerary and arrange transport so you can get the most out of your stay.

The famous entrance is the only street in London where you can drive on the right side.

The Deluxe River View Suites and larger come with a complimentary chauffeured car service. Well worth it for the return airport/station transfers.

How to enjoy London

From the fine art galleries of Mayfair and St James  (bring your wallet, this art is for sale) to the elegant terraces surrounding Regent’s Park, sophisticated London abounds. For an edgier side to the city, head to Soho, for the excellent restaurants

  • Explore Shepherd Market, a tiny backstreet square where London’s glitterati of Royals and A-listers go to club and dine
  • To see London from the highest vantage point, take the express lift (no elevators in these parts) to the newly opened observation platform on The Shard
  • Upmarket shopping can be found on Bond Street, South Molton Street and Savile Row. For one-offs and independents, explore the boutiques of King’s Road. Borough Market is perfect to explore stalls featuring local produce, and don’t forget the antique shops on Portobello Road.

Nowhere best captures the understated glamour, impeccable manners and intriguing idiosyncrasies of the British upper classes than the streets around Mayfair. To get up close and personal, however, you have to join in the traditions. Tea at The Ritz or Claridges is a must. (It’s even listed as a proper meal alongside breakfast, lunch and dinner on their menus). Don’t forget an appointment with your man in Jermyn Street (for exquisitely tailored shirts and suits).

For more quintessentially English experiences venture away from the central hub of Mayfair. South of the river there’s Wimbledon. Outside of the tournament, visit the tennis club. It has a museum and drips wealth. The boutiques and cafes of Wimbledon Village are worth an afternoon too. Finally, don’t forget the Queen. It would be rude not to stop by if you are in town. Buckingham Palace does tours. A tourist honeypot, but you can book exclusive tours of the State Rooms.
