The Savoy is located on the Northbank of the River Thames, equidistant from the City of London, the world’s financial capital and the likes of Knightsbridge and Mayfair. It was the first purpose-built deluxe hotel in London, setting new standards for luxury, comfort and service unheard of in the hotel world of today. No other London hotel can rival The Savoy’s superlative location.
It was known for the magnet of wealthy, famous and glamourous guests, with their stories becoming part of the legend of this truly unique hotel.
Built in 1889 by the theatrical impresario Richard D’Oyly Carte the building had no overall architect. The exterior was designed to look like a fashionable waterside continental hotel with long rows of balconies running all the way up the façade along the River Front.
The Savoy has been recognised with many prestigious awards throughout the years, demonstrating the continuous desire to strive for excellence.
With the famous entrance, there are some of London’s top restaurants and bars inside.
The Langham, London
The Langham is a modern luxury in the heart of the West End and has over 150 years of heritage, including famous guests and innovations from Europe’s first ‘Grand Hotel’. It truly is a London icon, so be prepared to be amazed and whisked away as you enter through the doors and walk into over 150 years of history.
It opened on June 10th, 1865 with the Prince of Wales attending. During the 70s The Langham, London became well-known for its one-of-a-kind indulgences – electric lights, hydraulic lifts, air conditioning and other extraordinary innovations. It soon became the favoured venue for royalty, artists and musicians all over the world.
This particular hotel played a significant role during the war years. It served as a local first-aid and military post during World War II.
In 2009 The Langham unveiled the magnificent results of a five year and £80 million refurbishments that included a stunning new lobby and a dazzling restored Palm Court that was the birthplace for the traditional afternoon tea.
Claridge’s is a 5-star luxury hotel in Mayfair from the 1850s where it has always excelled at the finer things in life, such as glamourous design, inspiring dining and impeccable service.
Life started as a single house where it was soon transformed into an art deco masterpiece that was favoured by royalty and the most distinguished figures of every generation.
You can certainly have an experience at Claridge’s you will never forget. Like they say there are many 5-star hotels in London but nowhere quite like Claridge’s.
William and Marianne Claridge ran a hotel in a single house at 51 Brook Street. They wanted to expand their business so bought five adjoining buildings in 1854. Queen Victoria and Prince Albert visited in 1860, with the hotel soon becoming a favourite. Richard D’Oyly Carte, the owner of the Savoy bought the hotel in 1893, re-designing the building.
The younger generation of London made Claridge’s their place to party with the ballroom echoing to the songs of Gershwin, the sounds of jazz and the steps of Charleston. Eighty new rooms and a stunning ballroom were added.
Hollywood stars started to adopt Claridge’s as their London residence. Cary Grant, Katharine Hepburn, Audrey Hepburn, Yul Brynner and Bing Crosby were just some of the guests. Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg began her long relationship with the hotel throughout these years, resulting in her first interiors works being commissioned by the hotel.
1996 saw it have another restoration led by designer Thierry Despont. He created Gordon Ramsay at Claridge’s, The Foyer, The Reading Room and The Fumoir. Kate Moss celebrated her 30th birthday here, with Jade Jagger and Lulu Guinness describing the hotel as their ultimate treat.
2014 saw Fera open under the Michelin-starred chef Simon Rogan. The interior of the restaurant reflects the creative and natural style of the cuisine.
2019, a new restaurant was opened called Davies and Brook. It is set in a relaxed yet refined setting, where the restaurant focuses on warm, inviting and engaging hospitality with delicious and beautiful cuisine.
