                              The level of personal attention and the professionalism of the staff was as high as you could ever want it. The rooms in our suite were spacious, clean and well appointed. The beds were excellent and the bathrooms superb. Compared to prices for luxury accomodations in other premier cities, our accomodations were good value.

                              It is inevitably a little uncomfortable to an American to have the service staff be quite so attentive to your needs.

                              The Savoy Grill. Our food was cold and we had to send it back - but in reality that can happen anywhere and was dealt with very well by the restaurant staff.

                              It was a Business/Pleasure visit, I had just flown in from la and my wife trained in from France for the weekend part of the visit. Other than one problem with the room not being cleaned one day the staff were excellent, courteous, observant and friendly (which we did not expect at such a grand hotel, we though it might be a bit stuffy and pompous) the hotel itself luxurious, magnificent even, the room superb and relaxing, we cannot praise the hotel highly enough, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. In the bar on Saturday night met a highly placed International business consultant and exchanged cards so good for networking too.

                              One day (Sunday) we left the hotel around 1100 and returned around 1630 (tired from walking around) and the room had still not been cleaned, the staff did apologise profusely but we still had to walk around for another hour waiting to return to the room. On the Tuesday I had an important business lunch and reserved the Savoy Grill (Gordon Ramsay), was given a fabulously placed table in a corner that allowed a private discussion over lunch but then the in lunch service was not so brilliant and the sole (£36) was cold and soggy. Did bump into Stephen Fry and the room was spectacular.

                              Savoy is a newly renovated luxury hotel in central London. The location is perfect with walking distatnce or short taxirides to most places in central London. The Art Deco design of the hotel is perfectly made with lots of fantastic details. But even more important is the service provided by helpful and serviceminded staff. Example: When the taxi arrives at the hotel one of many porters take care of the luggage and ask for my name. And when we then enter the hotel 30 seconds later, there is a nice lady welcoming us to the Savoy and takes us to the room with a smile. How many times haven't you been waiting at a reception and to fill in forms and showing passports? Here it was done in advance!

                              Not a thing to complain about.

                              Most expensive breakfast in the world and inedible. To be honest I expected a lot and there are far better London hotels than this. The whole thing was a real disappointment. Beautiful decor and friendly staff but the attention to detail was dreadful for a hotel that holds itself in such high regard; "This is the best hotel in London" the porter told us on arrival. Really? I think not. My advice? Stay at the Lanesborough.

                              The hotel is a British Landmark, and the the recent refurbishment has been stayed true to it's heritage. Beuatifully appointed and finished. It is the best of all things British

                              The price of this hotel denotes that the standards should be of the highest, yet the bags were not delivered to the room until a follow up phone call was made an hour late. I had to remove the plug in the bathroom as it wouldn't open fully. The toilet handle fell off (twice). When alking for 'pain au chocolate' from room service they explained that they didn't have these but they did have 'chocolate croissant'. We were joined by friends who also had a list of small points that just should not be happening in this sort of hotel. Previously have stayed in Langham's which has a far more mature service and better appointed facilities for 2/3 of the price. It's a no brainer!

                              The staff. Dressed in elegant,but not fussy apparel,they were the epitome of quiet efficiency.The hotel had a distinct "London feel" to it.Classy and understated,not brash and over-the-top.You don't go to good London hotels to be harrassed by the staff. Loved the shower. Too many "old-world" hotels still think that guests can shower in the bath.Room-service. Best I have seen,and done with minimum of fuss. If you want to hide from the "madding-crowd",you need never leave your room. Breakfast menu. Superb. Not huge,but gives you everything you need,at reasonable rates.Great stay. Didn't want to leave.

                              Staff were extremely helpful and friendly. They didn't have a note of our booking but no fuss was made in fact our room was upgraded!

                              Service at breakfast was a bit slow although they were not busy.
