My girlfriend and I stayed at the Savoy on a last minute trip for the weekend (Thursday-Sunday). Because it was last minute I had to book 2 different room types- a Standard Suite and the Traditional Room. The description of the room types on the hotel website are a bit misleading as they would lead someone to believe that the only differences between the Standard Suites are the bed types and the balcony, however some of the Standard Suites have a kitchenette, while others like the one we stayed in has only a microwave. If you plan on preparing some meals during your stay you may want to phone in and make sure you state your preference.Otherwise, the rooms are clean, and while the traditional room was small it was nice and was fine since we didn't stay in much.
The location was great. The hotel is situated closed to the end of the strip of hotels on Ocean Drive. After reading reviews of other hotels, people complained about the noise level. But outside noise was not an issue during our stay, and the hotel was still close enough to be within walking distance of restaurants, bars, and shops along Ocean and Collins. Also, the hotel was at full capacity while we were there, but it never seemed crowded, even in the pool and beach areas.
The Staff was very friendly and attentive at the front desk, valet, bell service, the bar, and the service from ordering food and drink from the beach and poolside. My only critique would be that during our stay, there was only one person working at the front desk. On one occasion I placed a call down to the desk and no one picked up, so after a few minutes I hung up. On separate occasions it took a while for my calls to be answered, but the staff was very accommodating.
There is a $15 charge per day which i didn't mind. It includes a fee for Wifi and use of beach chairs and beach towels. The hotel has a nice little section on the beach for guests where you can lounge on chairs under umbrellas. There is also a $30 per day fee if you choose to use the hotel valet. You can the front desk ahead of time so that your car is ready by the time you're outside.
Overall, I I would recommend staying at this hotel. The location is great, the hotel is well kept, and the staff is friendly and accommodating.
