It's the small details that set the Savoy apart from its rivals. Whether it's ice cubes of perfect shape and clarity in the American Bar's cocktails or the soft linens and fine upholstery of the subtly styled Riverside rooms, the refurbished Savoy exudes luxury and near-perfect attention to detail. Its staff are among the most gracious and attentive around.
