"A big thank you!"
I wanted to say a very big 'Thank You' to the wonderful staff in the American Bar. I was visiting London when I recieved some sad news. I felt the need to go to a place where I could clear my thoughts; where I could feel safe. I entered feeling unhappy, but left with a smile upon my face and the courage to continue on my journey. I feel thankful for the staff who gave me comfort and strength. I will certainly be staying here on my next visit to London. Thank you for your warmth; and the wonderful mojito.
"Excellent service at the Savoy"
I would give the Savoy an A+ for service, wonderful location, and although expensive was our splurge and worth it for its iconic roots. The afternoon tea was our favorite for our entire 2 week U.K. Trip - a must do!
"Wonderful as always"
I chose to visit here again after a longer than intended lull in my visits away. The Savoy manages to blend the history and prestige of the past with the present day and its values. In a world where there is an almost continuos desire for change,The Savoy has managed to keep some changes to a minimum but been aware that complacency is not going to help it maintain its place as a prestigious hotel that is much loved the world over.The difference is subtle but evident and this is most welcome. Fairmont,the company that run The Savoy are a company where staff come all over the globe and for a city like London its a perfect mix. To me The Savoy is like a whisky and it has to be blended to bring out the best it has to offer. From the moment you arrive,everything is taken care of and nothing is too much trouble. Check in is simple and a perfect chance to ask if you want anything that you might have forgotten. The key is a card and this is simple but stylish. Wi-fi is available and of course a much needed essential these days. As would be expected the rooms are spacious and provide a welcome place to rest or the like during your visit. I think the attention to detail is essential and in a competitive city like London it does make a difference. Afternoon Tea is always popular and a good opportunity to watch other folk and see how they succumb to being captivated by The Savoy. The piano playing and the atmosphere blend together very well indeed,almost like old friends. I noted Coronation Chicken sandwiches included in the selection offered and they were superb.The choice of teas is extensive and refreshing too,champagne is also offered with Afternoon tea if required. Booking is not mandatory but I would strongly and respectfully advise it to avoid disappointment especially if its for a birthday or something equally special. The Savoy Grill is also worth a visit and to be found on the lefthand side close to the hotel entrance. I would thoroughly recommend The Savoy to anyone.
The staff was very helpful and smiley all the time. The rooms met perfection for me !!! It's was really like a palace like a beautiful palace!! I upgraded to a river view room , and the view was unbelivable , all i wanted was there! As an advice to you , i would say to ask for an upgrade, it's really worthy and the view is amazing!
My husband and I came to London for 3 nights to celebrate my birthday. My travel agent suggested several modern hotels but I wanted the old world charm. The hotel was beyond what I expected and did not disappoint. I couldn't have asked for a nicer place! The entrance to the hotel was so beautiful with all the dark woodwork. We went into a side entrance of the hotel where the banquet and meeting rooms were located. All of those areas were very nice. They even had old pictures on the wall of celebrities who have dined or stayed at the Savoy. The service people, all in uniform, were friendly and professional. Our room was beautifully decorated and very large. I think we may have been upgraded because our room hadn't been vacated by the previous visitor. The bathroom was huge as well with a rain shower that my husband and I loved. Very nice to have a Nepresso coffee machine in the room but we never used it because we had breakfast included. We were served the American breakfast which was delicious and enormous. Service was great. Even in the American bar. Everyone made you feel welcomed. The concierge and all the men working at the entrance were pleasant, friendly and professional. The Savoy also has a theater connected to the hotel that we wanted to go to but there wasn't enough time. I guess we will just have to return!
