Located on the Strand and overlooking the River Thames, the Savoy, a Fairmont Hotel is one of London's most famous landmarks, set 300 meters from Trafalgar Square. The hotel is packed with original Art Deco features and has 263 individually decorated guestrooms. All are decorated in traditional English style, with chintzy fabrics and colorful walls. Amenities include Irish linen sheets, CD players, bathrobes and slippers, service call buttons, and bathtubs with Floris toiletries. Rooms face the street or the inner courtyard, have separate sitting areas and Internet connections.
In the Michelin starred Savoy Grill, guests can sample traditional dishes with a modern twist created by Gordon Ramsay's protege Marcus Wareing. The Savoy Grill was originally run by Cesar Ritz, and a refurbishment by American designer Barbara Barry has retained the dining room's original look, with russet brown decor and mirrored walls; the ceiling is lined with silver and platinum wallpaper. Alternatively, guests can enjoy a relaxed dining experience at Banquette, Marcus Wareing's take on an American diner. Evocative of the interior of a 1950s Corvette Stingray, the menu can include Beef Fillet Burger with Pear Chutney, Traditional Sheperd's Pie and King Crab Risotto. The American Bar, where the Dry Martini is said to have been created, serves cocktails to the strains of jazz piano music, as does the Laurent Perrier Bar, a vintage champagne bar. Guests can also take light lunch, afternoon tea or dinner in the elegant Thames Foyer where Noel Coward performed, Caruso sang and Pavlova danced in Cabaret. The Fitness Gallery is home to one of only two rooftop swimming pools in London. London Heathrow Airport is 45 minutes and 19 miles away.
