Sweet Savoy! / Hg2 OPENING OF THE WEEK

After what’s seemed like an eternity of waiting, Fairmont’s Savoy is finally reopening in London this month amid a blaze of publicity. Despite being over two years late and £100 million over budget (!), the famed London hotel has been sorely missed. General manager Kieran MacDonald says; “We’ve updated the hotel, but it still has all the original treasures: the same roof Fred Astaire danced on, the same bar Marilyn Monroe drank at, the same piano Starvinsky played. We’ve just polished them up a bit.” Indeed, The Savoy Grill also remains – this time headed up by none other than Gordon Ramsay – while the old hotel’s familiar Edwardian interiors still abound in two thirds of the bedrooms. The other third, however, are decked out in striking Art Deco style, with the hotel’s crowning glory being the Royal Suite – an eight-room palace spread across an entire floor. Embracing its history while adding a host of new hedonistic amenities, this is one refurbishment to be proud of. We, for one, can’t wait to check-in and check it out. The Savoy opens on 10th October.
