The Savoy, London Perfectly placed on the north bank of the River Thames and set within Covent Garden’s vibrant shopping and theatre district, The Savoy is London’s most celebrated and glamorous hotel. To stay at The Savoy is to follow in the footsteps of Sir Winston Churchill, Frank Sinatra, Christian Dior, Claude Monet and Katharine Hepburn. Originally opened in 1889, the hotel’s old style glamour sparkles with a fresh new 21st century lustre following the most ambitious hotel restoration in British history in 2010. The Savoy’s 195 guestrooms and 73 suites are decorated in either Edwardian or Art Deco style, and many afford breath-taking views over the River Thames. Blending comfort and elegance with discreet technology, nine Personality Suites take inspiration from high profile guests, while the hotel’s two bedroom Royal Suite is an impressive stately procession of rooms spread across the front of the entire fifth floor, overlooking the river. At The Savoy, guests will find some of London’s most iconic restaurants and lounges. Kaspar’s Seafood Bar and Grill joins Gordon Ramsay’s Savoy Grill and the British Institution, Simpson’s-in-the-Strand. Afternoon tea is offered in the Thames Foyer and drinks at the

American Bar or Theatrical Beaufort Bar. During a stay guests can also visit Savoy Tea for bespoke gifts and a unique range of teas and patisserie, or watch chocolatiers prepare the finest confectionery. Also available is a chance to unwind in the hotel’s renowned Beauty and Fitness area, which features a 10m swimming pool, state of the art fitness equipment and a full menu of massage, facial and beauty treatments. Hosting events such as a wedding, corporate event or private celebration at The Savoy is made easy with a highly experienced team that will help plan every tiny detail. The hotel’s three imposing Banqueting Rooms host the grandest affairs – while six Private Rooms are ideal for more intimate gatherings. In keeping with their pioneering heritage, The Savoy has been awarded a host of prestigious environmental awards and is a member of the Considerate Hoteliers Association, Sustainable Restaurant Association, Green Key Global Program, and holds a Gold Award with Green Tourism for London. www.fairmont.com/savoy
