A look inside the landmark London hotel.

The Savoy Hotel: an establishment of unrivalled luxury and character, rich cultural history and a unique standing amongst London’s top hotels.

Since it first opened its doors over a century ago in 1889, The Savoy Hotel has upheld its reputation for excellence as one of the city’s iconic landmarks. Settled in the heart of Covent Garden with London’s leading theatres, operas and nightlife situated just steps away, the hotel functions as a highly popular social hub for dinner, drinks and afternoon tea as much as overnight stays.

Its 267 rooms and suites are furnished with either an elegant Art Deco or English Edwardian style, with many featuring striking views of the River Thames. Those opting for suites are provided with a traditional full butler service, and all guests have access to luxury spa treatments, a private pool, and a 24-hour gym.

Fine dining is an integral element of The Savoy experience, with various restaurants marked by their own unique styles.

Described as the definition of ‘gourmet glamour’, Gordon Ramsay’s Savoy Grill boasts a range of famous and influential guests including Marilyn Monroe, James Dean, and even Queen Elizabeth. Its British Grill menu is elevated with a French touch, featuring classic cuts of steak, lobster and Crêpes Suzette flambéed at the table.

Kaspar’s at The Savoy also provides a range of seasonal dishes in an elegant, Art Deco-inspired setting, with champagne and seafood also served at an extravagant centrepiece bar.

Or for a truly traditional experience, visit the historic Simpson’s in the Strand. Having opened in 1828 as one of London’s great chess rooms, Simpson’s has become infamous for its roast dinners and classic menu. Following its refurbishment in 2017, the restaurant has partnered with acclaimed 18-year old satirical cartoonist Zoom Rockman, who has produced six artworks to celebrate Winston Churchill, a patron of Simpson’s, which will be displayed from 8 November.

Guests can also enjoy pre-dinner cocktails at the Beaufort Bar, an opulent, black-and-gold decorated venue with a theatrical feel, having once been the hotel’s cabaret stage. Its menu includes an extensive selection of champagne and an exquisite range of cocktails, including rare vintage mixes such as a 1940s Cuban Bacardi for £250, and 236-year-old Harewood House rum – the oldest known rum in the world – priced at £12,000.

The American Bar is also imbued with timeless luxury. The oldest surviving cocktail bar in London, it was recently named Hotel Bar of the Year at the Class Bar Awards this year, as well as World’s Best Bar and Best International Bar Team at the Tales of the Cocktail Spirited Awards 2018. A pianist fills the room with American Jazz 7 days a week, and drinks are served by white-jacketed waiters for an elegant, old-English flair.

And finally: the Thames Foyer, home of hotel’s renowned Afternoon Tea. The world-famous room is flooded with natural light through a decadent glass dome, under which live music is played from an ornate gazebo. Also hosting dinners and evening drinks, live music continues into the evening every Sunday to Thursday from 8.00pm to 12.00am, and every Friday and Saturday from 8.30pm to 12.30am.

The Savoy Hotel presents a versatile but timeless vision of luxury that serves any taste, interest or length of stay. A true London landmark for indulgence, celebration and business in equal measure – explore all booking options here.
