The Savoy, Strand, London
Beautiful design and a tangible sense of the past pervade this iconic world-famous hotel. First opening its doors in 1889, the establishment has a long tradition of providing well-heeled guests with impeccable service and top-notch facilities. Interiors are a sumptuous blend of Edwardian and Art Deco. There are two terrific restaurants, the legendary American Bar and even a swimming pool.
Rooms available from £640 per night
The Savoy is well placed for the West End theatres, as well as the shops and restaurants in Covent Garden. The National Gallery and the National Portrait Gallery are within walking distance, while the National Theatre is just across the river.
Boasting a central location on The Strand, the hotel's forecourt is notable for being the only street in Britain where traffic must keep to the right.
By car: over 4 hours from Manchester and 2 hours 30 minutes from Bristol. On-site parking costs £60 per day.
By train: Charing Cross tube station is a 5-minute walk away. London Waterloo is 10 minutes by taxi. Book trains to London.
CHARACTER & STYLE
Still one of the great London hotels and with a history to match. There's a distinctive blend of Edwardian and Art Deco styles enhanced by a sensitive restoration a few years ago. The stainless steel Savoy sign, redesigned Lalique glass fountain in the forecourt and beautiful marble entrance hall set the tone for the rest of the hotel.
As you might expect from a five-star hotel, the service is exceptional but also very warm. The concierge is an invaluable source of knowledge. A butler and a chauffeur service is also offered to guests staying in a suite.
