The Savoy, a Fairmont Managed Hotel, is to reopen its doors on Sunday, 10 October 2010.

The world-famous hotel closed in December 2007 for a restoration that encompasses the entire building, from the iconic entrance and the American Bar, to Savoy Grill and the 268 guestrooms and suites.

"We are very excited to reopen The Savoy," said Kiaran MacDonald, General Manager. "It is fair to say that this project has not been without its challenges, but we are looking forward to unveiling the results of nearly three years of hard work and dedication. We are very aware of the place that The Savoy holds in many people's affections and we firmly believe that the hotel will exceed people's expectations and reclaim its position as one of the world's great hotels."

The new interiors have been designed by world-renowned designer, Pierre Yves Rochon who has won acclaim for his work on other landmark hotels. His plans have been realised by the general contractors, Chorus Group and architects, Reardon Smith. Chorus have overseen a team of over 1000 craftsmen and women, artists and artisans who have worked tirelessly to create interiors that are in the spirit of the hotel's two main design aesthetics, Edwardian and Art Deco.

The Savoy's reopening will reveal a number of notable highlights including the complete remodel of the legendary River Restaurant, the addition of a luxurious new two bedroom Royal Suite and the relaunch of 38 River Suites and guestrooms with views over the River Thames.

New to the hotel will be The Beaufort Bar, an art deco bar that will offer champagne, cocktails and cabaret and Savoy Tea, a bijou teashop selling Savoy tea, accessories and fresh patisserie. Within the Thames Foyer, the re-introduction of a winter garden gazebo beneath an ornate glass dome will provide the perfect ambience for afternoon tea.

 In addition, the Savoy Grill will return again under the operation of Gordon Ramsay Holdings with Chef Patron, Stuart Gillies and Head Chef, Andy Cook.

 For those who wish to continue their fitness regime on the road, there will be a contemporary, glass enclosed fitness gallery and rooftop swimming pool - one of the few in the city.

Room rates at The Savoy will start from around GBP 350 per room per night with reservations opening on 10 August 2010.
