"The luxury is found in the details"
The Savoy is obviously grand, inviting, pleasing and luxurious, but it is in the details that it shines and makes it stand out and you just want it to make it your home. Outstanding! We stayed at The Savoy for a weekend in May. Having already booked a queen superior room we upgraded to a king deluxe room on the 4th floor. The room was beautifully decorated with plush and elegant furniture which made you want to go and find where they'd bought that desk or bed so that you could have one in your own home. The room featured a rounded window towards the park, big curtains and a carpet to match the rest. I wouldn't say that the room was huge, but it featured the usual double bed, a rather large desk and a section to rest with two comfortably chairs with a small table. The bathroom was big, though, and there' was enough cupboards and drawers. It was only when we started to notice the details after awhile that we really embraced the ingenuity of the hotel. FIrstly, it's really quiet - no sound of any neighbours. How delightful! And this was after all during the weekend and there were quite a few people on the hotel as far as we could tell. They'd put a bottle of water beside each side of the bed that they replaced when we were not around. How pleasant! How many times have you not struggled in the night to find some water' They had a night light in the bathroom - which made a night visit so much easier and it was hardly visible from the main room. The shower featured a larger shower head with enough power to spray off your tan if need be, or you could choose to use a small, hand-held one. It's nice to not struggle to get your body and hair washed. For once there was a proper soap stand exactly where it was supposed to be. A small thing, but it's one of those annoying things. The Savoy doesn't have a common reception desk, but rather several smaller desks where you are invited to sit down and get checked in and out. Although not uncommon, it's absolutely more delightful than standing in a queue. The main lounge is absolutely stunning with a grand piano on a podium in the middle. I would also recommend to visit the Beaufort bar, but do make a reservation. It's different and I'm definitely going back there. We also ate breakfast at Kaspar's and you should try the omelette where you choose your own ingredients - it's probably the best I've ever had - and I've had a few in my life. And the whole staff was first class, from the smiling and kind door men to the waiters and receptionists. We felt very welcomed. Obviously, it isn't cheap, and usually I try to recommend an improvement for the hotel, but I can't honestly come up with one. Absolutely fabolous!
"Great for a late night drink!"
We enjoy having a late night bottle of Chablis in the piano bar at The Savoy! Reasonably priced wine can be found here while making the most of the atmosphere. Often a queue after the theatre and preference given to hotel guests when busy.
"Absolute classic luxury"
The Savoy is all what you expect from an iconic London landmark hotel. Implacable trained personnel ready to fulfill you every wish and an atmosphere of history at every corner. There is not really a lot to say about this hotel as they endeavor to make you feel as relaxed and pampered like in your dreams. It truly feels like a home away from home.
"Spoilt....in a good way..."
What was supposed to be a stay with the hubby for a celebration, turned into a solo extended stay ...firstly, my Butler set standards that I'm going to have difficulty not having when I get home...then breakfast in the Savoy Foyer was just lovely & drinks in the American Bar just fabulous as the staff remembered you & what you liked to drink...plus the room (Riverview Deluxe Suite) was not bad digs either...WONDERFUL...!!!
"Every expectation met"
The Savoy was a special treat for us in London. The location is fabulous and it was a lovely walk along the Thames in the morning to the Tate Modern. The staff are superb. All very friendly and available whenever you need something. We felt welcomed and cared for. The hotel is beautiful with a great history. Our room had a view of the Thames, overlooked trees and was very quiet. The furnishings are of the highest quality and the bedding practically puts you to sleep. On the Saturday night we stayed there was a 10 piece orchestra that replicated a 30's band complete with singers, conductor and musicians in the costumes of the day. They were a terrific dance band and we reclined in the gorgeous upholstered settee before retiring. Breakfast, in the same beautiful Thames Foyer, was served in the gentle and generous manner that all staff seem to be trained in. The food was delicious and the coffee excellent. It was a memorable stay in a wonderful city.
