The Savoy, a Fairmont Managed Hotel, unveils the new jewel in its crown of suites with the creation of the new Royal Suite this week, its top-tier of accommodation comprising an open-plan procession of rooms spanning the entire riverside of the fifth floor.
When The Savoy reopened in 2010, a Royal Suite was introduced to represent the pinnacle of luxury and to offer a traditional London experience against the backdrop of unrivalled views of the River Thames and iconic landmarks. Now, the new Royal Suite responds to the expectations of a modern luxury traveller and offers a more residential style of accommodation that meets the desire to ‘live in the space as if living at home’. Titans of industry, world leaders, and visiting royalty, will now enjoy an apartment-like space that not only represents the height of luxury, but that also reflects the style of home they would choose to reside in themselves.
With award-winning designer Pierre-Yves Rochon and ReardonSmith Architects heading up the design, The Royal Suite at The Savoy has been remodelled to enhance the heart of the space and encourage harmonious flow between the rooms. The living spaces, whilst luxurious, reflect a comfortable and less formal experience. In the Living Room a new private luxury bar is clad with an exquisite rippled glass façade and floor to ceiling windows afford guests the most enviable and spectacular river views in London.
A Royal Entourage
Guests of The Royal Suite will have 24-hour access to their own dedicated Savoy Royal Entourage* to ensure all their needs are catered for in the lead-up to and during their stay at ￼￼The Savoy. Personnel include a Savoy Butler, London concierge, chef and bartender, therapist, personal stylist/shopper, and hairdresser and make-up artist. The Guest Services Team are on-hand to determine requirements from the moment a guest reserves The Royal Suite, facilitating anything from creating a unique London itinerary to arranging red carpet event preparations in-suite, and from devising bespoke menus and beverages to organising a private in-suite viewing of the latest fashion collection.
*Additional charges will apply for personnel and arrangements other than 24-hour Savoy Butler.
Guests of The Royal Suite will also enjoy the following as part of a stay at The Savoy:
- Round-trip airport transfers and a Savoy Butler to greet at the airport.
- Chauffeur-driven Rolls Royce at their disposal during a stay, subject to availability.
- Exclusive use of the private Royal Circle in the American Bar.
The new Royal Suite at The Savoy opens within weeks of the launch of the brand new luxury Savoy Suite, which can be configured as one- or two-bedroom accommodation, and boasts the same unrivalled views of the River Thames and iconic London landmarks.
‘The reinvention of our top-tier offering at The Savoy puts us at the forefront of the London luxury hotel industry, and is in response to the ever-changing requirements of the modern and discerning luxury traveller. Our VIP guests today seek a style of accommodation that meets the level of luxury and service that they are accustomed to in their day-to-day lives, and that is equivalent to their own residential surroundings.’ Kiaran MacDonald, Managing Director of The Savoy.
