A British icon since 1889, The Savoy has once again taken its place on the world stage after a restoration believed to have cost well over $100m. The hotel seamlessly blends elements of the original and the new while the stunning Edwardian and art deco interiors sparkle with timeless elegance and glamour. The 268 guest rooms and suites are the last word in style, luxury and discreet with stunning views of London and the River Thames. Nine ‘signature suites’ have been styled after some of The Savoy’s most high-profile guests.

The Savoy’s Royal Suite is one of the capital’s finest and most well-appointed accommodations. Spread over the front of the entire fifth floor, the suite’s enfilade arrangement makes the most of the dramatic views over the River Thames. From each of the eight windows, guests can enjoy a magnificent London vista from Canary Wharf to the Houses of Parliament and beyond with seven of London’s bridges visible. Services to guests in this suite are extensive, and include – in addition to the customary five-star amenities – in-suite check-in and an unpacking and repacking service, ideal for those who wish for a quick, seamless voyage.
