The Savoy Hotel is open again following a million pound upgrade.
 
Now under management by the Fairmont Group, The Savoy is back better than ever. It is a worthy successor to the ancient palace that once stood on the site.

The refurbishment was by Pierre-Yves Rochon who was responsible for the renovations to the illustrious George V Hotel in Paris. The stunning Edwardian and Art Deco interiors have been retained.
 
The Hotel now has 268 luxurious guestrooms and suites offering stunning views of London and the River Thames. As well, there are nine 'signature' suites which have been styled after some of the Savoy's high profile guests. There is also a two bedroom 'Royal' suite who those who demand truly top class accommodation.

Palace of Savoy

The Hotel gets its name from an ancient medieval palace that once stood on the site. Apparently, the ‘Savoy Palace’ was an impressive building of white stone standing on a hill and sweeping down to the Thames below. It was the home of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster (1340 to 1399), the fabulously wealthy and influential uncle of the boy king Richard II. The Palace was burnt to the ground during the Peasant’s Revolt in 1381.

King Henry VII founded a hospital for the poor and needy which was opened in 1512. Attached to this hospital was a chapel. The hospital closed in 1792 and most of the buildings were demolished in the 19th century except for The Queen's Chapel of the Savoy.

Fronting The Strand, the palace site is marked by the current Savoy Theatre and Hotel.
