The Savoy in London Reopens October 10 After £100 Million Restoration

June 25, 2010 By:Mary Winston Nicklin

The Savoy, LondonThe date is set. After a massive £100 million restoration project that started in 2007, London's iconic Savoy will reopen on October 10, 2010. (The luxury hotel will begin accepting reservations on August 10.) Located on The Strand in the heart of the West End theatre district, "the palace on the Thames" has been spoiling guests with lavish Afternoon Tea and accommodations since 1889. In describing "the most expensive restoration in British hotel history," The Times (UK) predicted that when The Savoy opens its doors, it will give the city's prominent luxury hotels "a run for their money." And with interiors by Pierre-Yves Rochon, the A-list designer responsible for the Four Seasons George V in Paris and the Grand Hotel du Cap-Ferrat on the French Riviera-- we can see what all the fuss is about. Now managed by Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, The Savoy will unveil a top-to-bottom overhaul: from the hotel's entrance and the American Bar to Savoy Grill, the River Restaurant, and the 268 guest rooms. New on the scene will be the Art Deco-style Beaufort Bar offering cocktails and cabaret.
