One of London’s most famous and storied hotels, The Savoy, reopened its doors to overnight guests at the beginning of this month following the national lockdown.
It has been a torrid time for the travel and hospitality industries and so it is encouraging to see hotels in the city beginning to reopen and welcome guests once again.
The hotel has phased its reopening, with the Savoy Grill being the first restaurant to reopen on 21st September, followed by the Beaufort Bar and Thames Foyer a few days later on 24th September.
Finally on 1st October, The Savoy reopened its beautiful rooms and suites for overnight stays and to mark the occasion, have launched an exclusive Suite Dining Experience in what is the first of a series of exciting new dining and drinking initiatives from the hotel.
If you are staying overnight at The Savoy, you are now able to enjoy the hotel’s luxurious and impeccably decorated rooms and suites in the knowledge that you will be safe and secure in these uncertain times. And if safety and mixing with other people is one of your main concerns, then how about enjoying a new superb five course dining experience in one of The Savoy’s stunning River View Suites. And you don’t even have to actually be staying overnight. The Suite Dining Experience is priced at £300 for two, with a menu that focuses on sustainable and seasonally changing ingredients and includes a glass of Louis Roederer NV Champagne for the two of you.
Given the fact that so many of us have been couped up inside for much of the year, the chance to dine in the privacy of the most gorgeous suite with fabulous views as the sun sets and the bright lights of the capital begin to shine, will no create a hopefully more positive memory of 2020. You will be able to enjoy the undivided attention from one of the hotel’s dedicated servers and simply relax in the splendid and luxurious atmosphere of a Savoy suite that would normally cost over £2,000 per night to stay in.
Bookings are available each evening from 6:00pm to 8:30pm and diners are requested to leave the luxury of the suite by 10:00pm so as to comply with government curfew regulations.
Prior to reopening, the hotel has been working diligently to prepare for guests’ return, and have implemented rigorous health and safety measures in line with Accor’s ALLSAFE standards, which, in an exclusive partnership with insurer AXA, offers guests free access to teleconsultations with medical professionals.
