The Savoy was the perfect fit for us. A beautiful combination of 2 art deco era hotels, The Savoy Plaza and the Hotel Arlington (see old photos in lobby). Our room and all the public areas were first class. While not technically a private beach, it sure felt like a private beach with food and drink service provided by the Savoy. As others have mentioned, the location is prefect. While conveniently only one block from the high energy of Ocean Drive, the Savoy is a very private and quiet retreat. The staff of the Savoy was extremely friendly and helpful, without exception. In particular, I would like to mention Franklin and Fabian, both of whom greatly added to the pleasure of our stay.
