The famous Savoy hotel in London went through one of the most ambitious restorations in British history and has now reopened after a massive $350 million revamp. The hotel has been closed for nearly three years while the impressive restoration project took shape.
The world-renowned designer Pierre Yves Rochon is responsible for the refreshed look of the Savoy and more than 1,000 craftspeople, artists and artisans worked to create interiors that are in keeping with the hotel’s original and much loved spirit.
The Savoy now has 38 new River suites and guestrooms which offer the same stunning views over the River Thames and nine personality suites that pay tribute to some of the celebrities who made the hotel their London home such as Sinatra, Charlie Chaplin and Marlene Dietrich. These special suites feature art, literature, photographs and artifacts evoking the time and spirit of the stars.
Another new attraction is a new Royal Suite featuring two bedrooms, a study, sitting room, dining room, master bathroom, dressing room and a master bedroom with a bespoke Savoir bed. The suite has been specially designed so that all the rooms enjoy some of the finest views of London and it will cost $16,000 per night.
