This is a historic hotel. Maybe I should have written this in all caps. This is not the Holiday Inn! The Savoy Hotel is an experience. If you are looking for a cookie-cutter, box hotel room with a pool, stay elsewhere! If you are looking for an experience from another age, for stained glass windows and domes, for white-coated waiters, for the best breakfast anywhere, The Hotel Savoy is your place! We checked in on a Friday night, we were handed a real key (Remember those?), and a breakfast menu to fill out and turn in for the next morning. By the way, who eats the continental breakfast choice when you can have smoked salmon with caviar and Coquille St. Jacques? The suite was huge! 1.5 bathrooms! I'm not kidding! The king sized bed was super comfortable and the whole room was antique and clawfoot-tub cozy!
Breakfast was incredible! Fresh OJ, some of the best coffee I've had in awhile, and then came the entrees! Fresh fruit, lamb chops, did I mention the salmon with caviar? And, maybe the best part, Lobster Bisque. Absolute heaven in a bowl! Believe me, you won't need lunch after this breakfast!
There is some talk about the "haunted" fifth floor. Our room was on the fifth floor. No ghosts. No unexplained noise. In fact, it was so quite, we might have thought we were alone on that floor if we hadn't ridden up in the elevator with a young lady who went into the room across the hall. Yes, she was fully corporeal!
The bar/dining room is right out of the early 1900's. In fact, they told me the barstools were original to the hotel. The bartenders have some celebrity stories to tell, as well, but neither of our bartenders had any first-hand knowledge of ghosts.
The entire staff is so friendly. They remembered our names when they saw us, and told stories about the pictures and documents that line the walls.
We will definitely make the Savoy our weekend get-away destination from now on. Next time, we will dine in the Savoy Grill. I hear it's fantastic!
