Redesigned Savoy hotel set to open

The Savoy hotel’s £100m redesign will be unveiled on Sunday, the culmination of a three-year project with design by Pierre-Yves Rochon and architect Reardon Smith.

An Edwardian and Art Deco-inspired design has been applied to guestrooms and public areas, and an entirely new services infrastructure – including back-of-house staff areas and Gordon Ramsay-managed kitchens – will be brought into the London hotel.

Rochon has transformed the river front restaurant and introduced a new bar with a refurbished 1930s-era stage.

The hotel’s stained glass dome is being reinstated over the central Thames Foyer and 12 original Art Deco guestrooms have been restored in keeping with the style.

A completely new 325m2 royal suite has been instated featuring three bedrooms, a study, a sitting room, a dining room, a master bathroom and a dressing room – complete with a ventilated shoe closet.

Larger five-fixture bathrooms have been designed and ten additional suites have been integrated as part of a reconfigured floor plan.

‘Personality suites’ will reference Maria Callas, Charlie Chaplin, Marlene Dietrich and Frank Sinatra through artwork, literature, photographs and artifacts.
