The Savoy is one of those places that became a landmark after so many years of appreciation. Staying at this hotel is an incredible experience. As you step in the hotel, you receive a very warm welcome and they escort you to the reception for a seemless check-in. The elevator we used to go up to our room was even the first electric elavator of London, called the 'ascending room'.
You see images of celebrities who had stayed at the hotel in the earlier years and can dine at the same restaurants and bars that they did such as the American Bar or the Simpson's restaurant on the Strand. Definitely suggest the famous Afternoon tea and a short visit to the cute tea shop/ patisserie they have just by the Thames foyer.
In short, staying at this hotel gave us the opportunity to have incredible memories. Suggest living this experience fully by reserving a seat for the dinner at one of the restaurants inside, for a coctail at one of the legendary bars and the iconic afternoon tea with exquisite selection of savories and sweets with many tea blends. Will never forget how kind the servants are. Very nice ambiance under that glass dome and live piano music. Not like many of the other hotels, during the evening all areas of the hotel get busy by the locals visiting for drinks and dinner.
Almost forgot to mention that Bon Jovi was also staying at the hotel during the same period, it was an amazing feeling to share the elevator whith a legend.
At the end, again same warm farewell this time from the doorman, even asking us if we have everything with us, our phones, passport and personal belongings to double check and eliminate any last minute problems. Thank you Savoy for the most iconic experience.
