"Evening at the savoy "
My wonderful son took me to the savoy for high tea as a Mother's Day treat, it was amazing we'd previously been to the ritz for high tea and this by far was better , the food was delicious , we had refills on the sandwich sand was asked by our waitress (Michelle) did we prefer any ones in particular we did it was the coronation chicken 😍 so she brought us half a plate of those and the other half mixed fillings. The asparagus and pouched egg with hollandaise sauce with crayfish was delicious, we will be returning for sure 💯 Michelle our waitress was a delightful young lady who made our visit exceptional.

"EXCELLENT ALL THE WAY AROUND"
After some issues with my stay in 2015 I decided to give them another chance and am glad I did. Wonderful visit. They got everything perfect. Especially first rate was the check-in that took about a minute. From the time the black cab dropped me off to the suite door closing behind me took about 5 minutes. Was pleasantly surprised they put me in the newly remodeled Monet Suite (recently relocated from the fifth floor to a corner on the sixth - with views along The Thames from St. Paul's to Big Ben). Valet was very helpful and attentive - answering questions and giving useful tips. Well done Savoy!!!
Staff were excellent and did not feel rushed at all. Afternoon tea was delicious. It was especially nice to have lemon curd as well as jam and cream with the scones. Sandwiches were a lovely selection and we were asked more than once if we would like them replenished. Not quite the Ritz but nevertheless excellent and would highly recommend a visit. Lewis our waiter was very friendly and helpful.
"Benchmark Fairmont Property"
Stayed at The Savoy with my husband and two children (11 and 12) for five nights. Best greeting at a hotel we have every received. Kelly (director of guest services) greeted us at the car and could not have been more welcoming. She and Sean (head butler) whisked us through the check in process in 2 minutes. They were clearly ready and awaiting our arrival even though they did not know what time of day we were arriving. I could fill up a page about the smooth check in process and escort to our room. We had booked a two bedroom family room. It was a perfect room for the four of us. It had two separate bedrooms with door. Our room had a king bed, desk and armchair. The children's room had two queen size beds and an armchair. We were able to fit in a full size room service table and eat breakfast in the children's room as a family. We simply brought in the chair from the desk in the master bedroom, used the armchair and the two benches at the bottom of their beds. There was only one bathroom but we knew that going in. It's a large bathroom with a convenient ledge across from the sink which was perfect for all four cosmetic/toiletry bags. It really was a perfect room for us. When the kids are older, two connecting rooms which would give us two bathrooms might be more convenient. The rooms were totally soundproof. I was a little worried as we were next to an elevator. We could not hear a thing in the hallways, above or below us; nor could we hear anything outside. Quietest room I have ever stayed in. The concierges were AMAZING. The friendliest, most helpful concierges I've encountered. I am loathe to mention names because I can't remember them all. I think we spoke to every concierge over the five days and every one was a star. Every night my husband and I had drinks in the American Bar or the Beaumont Bar. Both are equally amazing with different feels. Anyone staying at The Savoy must try both. The drinks are sublime. Expensive, yes. But worth every penny. We only had dinner at the hotel. We ate at Kaspars. It was excellent. My one regret is that we didn't have the opportunity to have dinner at the other restaurants within The Savoy. We have stayed at almost every Fairmont property in North America as well as many outside of NA. The Savoy stands heads above the others (including The Plaza which until now was my benchmark). I don't know how I can come to London and consider staying anywhere else.
