The Savoy, London, UK

By Lauren Jade Hill

One of the most well-known hotels, not just in London but the world over, The Savoy has been a favorite of kings and queens ever since it opened in 1889. Edwardian stylings mix with Art Deco; designer Pierre Yves Rochon used silk wall coverings, marble flooring and Murano glass chandeliers in his decor.

No two suites are the same, and many have the original fireplaces to cozy up in front of while you look out over the river Thames. Be sure to visit the award-winning American Bar — enjoy the live pianist playing American jazz with a famous White Lady signature cocktail.

Top suite: Royal Suite from $19,000 per night

Sunday best: Roast dinners on a Sunday are a time-honored tradition in the UK. Head to Simpson’s in the Strand for roast rib of beef, served directly from the carving trolley. There is also a carving master class if you want to re-create the meat mastery at home.
