The Savoy

The Savoy reopened in 2010 after the largest ever hotel restoration in London, a £220m project that reaffirmed the extraordinary heritage of this iconic hotel. A new level of glamour and sense of luxury was achieved throughout, echoing the very finest of 1920s Art Deco combined with an Edwardian-inspired, classic English style – both synonymous with The Savoy. The riverfront restaurant was transformed and the lavishly theatrical Beaufort Bar introduced, complete with The Savoy’s refurbished 1930s stage. The legendary American Bar was stripped out for new services and rebuilt to appear almost as before, while natural light was returned to the heart of the building by way of a magnificent stained glass dome over the Lower Thames Foyer.

The authentic Art Deco guest rooms were faithfully restored, and others were totally refurbished in a style highly sympathetic with the spirit of the original. Most of the 180 Edwardian guest rooms needed total rebuilding, but, wherever possible, original fittings and features were removed, cleaned and reinstated. A new Royal Suite was introduced, spanning nearly the entire length of the hotel at fifth-floor level.
