My then boyfriend (now fiance) booked a room at The Savoy for a Valentines treat. We were in London for the 6 nations rugby and i thought we would be spending 3 nights at the Premier Inn, County Hall (which is an excellent location BTW) but a week before the trip he confessed that we'd have to pack up our stuff on the Monday morning and cross the river in order to spend Valentines night at The Savoy. Well, i was over the moon! But not to be out done i then contacted the Savoy myself privately in order to arrange HIS valentines treat. We were advised that check in wouldn't be until 2pm but that they could store our luggage. We got to the Savoy at midday and were taken straight to a private room in order to check in. I did panic that the receptionist would mention my surprise for him but i should have known that hotels like this ooze discression so i didn't need to worry! Our room still wasn't quite ready so we popped to the Wellington (fantastic pub on the corner of Aldwych) for a pie and a pint whilst we waited. We got back to the hotel at 1pm and were immediately taken to our room where our luggage was waiting. Within minutes of being in the room the phone rang to check that we were there. It was the therapist from the Spa who i had booked to come down to our room to give my other half a massage for his Valentines treat. Before you could blink she was in the room with her table set up and my other half enjoyed an hour long treatment leaving me more than a bit jealous! When she left she asked if we wanted to add the treatment to the bill or keep it seperate. As it was his present i opted to have it left seperate. We spent the afternoon in the Beaufort Bar sampling cocktails and nibbling the olives and nuts that are in plentiful supply....
Our room wasn't massive but it was definitely luxurious! The bath was huge and deep and the shower was excellent. The mini bar was well stocked and, for London, wasn't ridiculously expensive - just as well as we virtually emptied ours!!
Breakfast the following day was served over looking the river and after looking around at the other guests i really did realise that The Savoy is another world. A world that i don't think i could live in, but one i'm happy to visit!!
We didn't dine at the hotel as we had theatre reservations that night but would love to go back to eat at The Savoy Grill.
All in all it was an amazing treat, you're always aware that you're staying in one of THE best hotels in the world and that does come at a price. But it's worth it!!!
