“Review of business breakfast at the Savoy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

I did not stay or eat in the restaurant, but did come into contact with a number of staff members. The meeting was in one of the conference rooms and had the standard fare of croissants and muffins. Sadly nothing more interesting but that was in the hands of the host, not the hotel. Although I did not try one, the muffins looked spectacular. The urn of hotel coffee (usually like mud in most hotels) was a tasty blend. For once, I could have drunk a 2nd cup.

The staff were uniformly charming and friendly. I had no idea where to go. Like quality hotels everywhere, there is no obvious check-in or place to make enquiries. Staff quickly appeared when I stood briefly looking lost. My walking stick was immediately spotted and I was escorted to the lift. Coming out a woman was approaching the stairs with a small overnight case (a pilot case with an extending handle). Someone rushed forward to help and carry it. The doorman was later on station, not distracted, and called a cab for me. This was a step up on Claridges which I reviewed recently after a lunch. The staff were not as spontaneously smiling, helpful and cheery so this was a really good experience. On that comparison, and my limited exposure, it is nevertheless worth an extra star on Claridges

The ambience and history makes the savoy Grill well worth a visit.
It is reasonably priced and the food is excellent.
The steaks are fantastic full of flavour and superb choice. Maybe a few more fries and vegtables (extra cost) wouldnt go amiss. We will return as we enjoyed the whole experience.

From the minute we arrived and experienced the seamless valet parking, to the moment our car was returned to us the next day, this was a faultless hotel experience. The staff were friendly and attentive without being over-bearing. Cannot fault the service from everyone we encountered. Afternoon tea was a delight. Dinner at Savoy Grill was also a superb experience. Room was above expectations. Great size, beautifully decorated and impeccably clean. Again, cannot fault it. Nothing at all to say against this hotel from our experience. Made it a birthday to remember for a long, long time!!

A couple of quiet drinks in the American Bar followed by a wonderful meal in the Savoy Grill was the perfect wedding present. We shared a chateaubriand which was cooked to perfection followed by an exotic cheesecake and desert wine. Thoroughly recommend this place.

Fantastic restaurant, amazing service, and the food wass delicious.

We initially went for tea only and ended up ordering a few things from the menu.

It may be expensive, but it is certainly worth it for the quality, experience, and service.

We had a queen size room, which is the cheapest you can stay in at The Savoy. The bed was fantastically comfortable and the Bathroom well appointed with huge bath and rainforest shower. The products are the amazing Le Labo Rose 31,which are fantastic.Overall next time I would plump for a larger room, especially if you are staying more than a couple of days, as the space is a little limited, however if you can compromise on space The Savoy does everything in style and is a great luxury hotel in the centre of London. I personally love it, the staff are always so professional and the atmosphere very genteel.
They have a fabulous Boodles in house should you want to buy fantastic jewellry away from the hustle and bustle of Bomd street.All in all will we stay again, you bet!

Room Tip: The more you pay the larger the room, but they are all still well appointed.

Flying visit only unfortunately, whilst at a conference but will almost certainly stay again.
Beautiful calm, elegant oasis of 40s style. Staff extremely helpful and the room was immaculately clean, comfortable and well appointed. Very quiet, despite its location. My only gripe was a regular high pitched 'clink' overnight, which in the cold light of morning, I think must have been coming from the air conditioning unit. Being a light sleeper it was a nuisance and I ended up sleeping with a pillow over my head!
