“Pure class”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2013

We attended a function here at the Savoy and from the moment we entered the building to the time we left the whole experience was magical.
Service was amazing at every turn as were the canapes and food in the evening.
The American Bar was an experience in itself and was like a step back in time to a softly lit bar with a pianist plaing and singing. An amazing experience-perhaps one day we may even stay over......?

We stayed here as a one-night splurge, and it completely spoiled us. From the time you walk in the front door and they mysteriously know your name, to the amazing room, to the butler service, to the spectacular public areas, etc... Everything at this hotel was perfect, and I only wish we could have stayed longer. I suppose being bumped up to a suite for free has helped my impression of this place, but I have a feeling that all rooms were equally amazing. I have never slept in a more comfortable bed either.

An absolute must is a cocktail in the Beaufort Bar and the American Bar. Book a table earlier in the day, or you may not be able to later on.

As a couple who didn't exactly fit in with the upper-class moneyed folks who normally stay here, we felt perfectly welcomed by the staff and were treated very nicely.

Stayed in this hotel because of a conference.
Very nice hotel that certainly live up to its name. Room is very nice, and service is good. Good location too, just across the Thames river, and walking distance to major tube stations like charring cross, covent garden and embankment.

Step back to a time when standards were high and English afternoon tea was the usual thing. Wonderful service, choice of teas, lovely sandwiches and pastries. Warm scones with clotted cream and jam, all delicious and so filling. A marvelous experience and so relaxing.

I bought my husband a lunch voucher for two with champagne for Christmas and today we returned to my favourite hotel. The staff were extremely attentive, friendly and made us feel very welcome, they could not have done more. The three course lunch was more than adequate and the food was perfect. The service is second to none without a doubt. I find it very difficult to relate to any bad review on this hotel and its wonderful staff. I can only think they must be obnoxious people. I have only stayed here once prior to the refurb with my daughter who was just 14 at the time, my word did they make our stay so special, i certainly hope to return again soon. Thank you so much for a lovely time.

I'm lucky enough to have stayed in many great London Hotels but this place ooooozes glamour! I surprised my husband with a stay here for his birthday and I think even he was overwhelmed. For the first time in a long time everything about our trip went well. We didn't even have to check in-we were met at the door by a lovely lady who led us straight to our room.

My only complaint was that there was no tea in the room.
Will definitely be back!

Room Tip: Sign up for Fairmont President's club for free wifi etc

Everything about the Savoy is excellent, from walking into the impressive lobby area to the attentive and helpful staff.

Unfortunately our room this time had no view and because of the old sash style windows/doors, the noise from the street travelled into the room - a lot of London noise very early in the morning, we were room 308 so I'd suggest avoiding if you can. We also asked for ironing board & tea/coffee making facilities when asked for our preferences by email prior to arriving, on check in the guy told us the tea and coffee would arrive later, and we had to phone down for iron and board. It seems self-defeating to ask for your preferences in advance but not fulfil them, were it a lesser hotel I wouldn't even mention it but this is The Savoy, detail matters.

Room itself was amazing, huge room with high ceilings and finished beautifully, large TV with great selection of channels and movies and heated floor bathroom with excellent power shower. Oh, most comfortable beds too, just fantastic! We had drinks in the foyer one night, the cocktails were very good. I was travelling with my teenage daughter, word of caution that they don't allow kids in either the Beaufort or American bars. Worth noting if you are thinking of a nightcap on the way back from theatre.

A couple of minor niggles but really, The Savoy is just about the best hotel experience in the world, SO much better than the Ritz with none of the pompous snobbery that goes on.

We ate at Simpsons on the Strand one night before Let it Be at the Savoy Theatre, both were excellent and well worth a visit, I've also eaten in Savoy grill on previous occasions, food there is terrific too. Didn't have breakfast so can't comment but did use my President Club vouchers on check out to pay for some of those cocktails!

Location is amazing and it is within walking distance of everywhere - London Eye 15 minutes, Parliament 15 minutes, Trafalgar Square 10 minutes and Buckingham Palace 20 minutes, no need for tube!

Room Tip: Avoid 308, very noisy!
