London is a city steeped in history. Yet from the moment you arrive at The Savoy's gleaming art deco entrance, there is a sense of a celebrated past meeting a very enticing present. This is the London hotel where Escoffier cooked, Gershwin premiered "Rhapsody in Blue", Pavlova danced and Caruso sang. Where Monet painted his series of views of the River Thames from his bedroom window, Winston Churchill engaged in lively after-hours debates, Elizabeth Taylor spent part of her first honeymoon and current celebrities are frequently spotted. Today, the Savoy's landmark American Bar continues to serve the coolest cocktails while traditional afternoon tea reigns supreme in the historic Thames Foyer. The legendary Savoy Grill under chef/patron Marcus Wareing has earned fresh accolades, including a coveted Michelin Star and the Lancaster Ballroom continues to host glittering society events. Guests today are also invited to exchange their business suits for bathing suits and enjoy the Mondrian-inspired jet stream swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms in the hotel's Fitness Gallery. The hotel founded in 1889 by Gilbert and Sullivan opera impresario Richard D'oyly Carte as an adjunct to his Savoy theatre, has always exuded energy and creative flair. Located on the edge of Covent Garden with the theatres and shops of the West End only a short distance away, and close to the City and London's financial district, The Savoy is the perfect venue for a stay in the capital. Whatever your reason for staying with us, we think you will be captivated by The Savoy's ongoing story. We encourage you to create your own chapter and we hope that The Savoy will remain not only the quintessential hotel in the heart of London, but equally a place in your heart.
