unique experience. It is simply one thing to have High Tea. The scones, finger sandwiches, pastries, and the tea. It is altogether an entirely different thing to have High Tea at the Savoy in London while passing an afternoon in luxurious environs. Pro Tip: Make sure you dress classy. Yes that means suit and tie for the gents and nice dresses for the ladies. My experience here is simply put elegant and classy. If you have the time and the money for it. It is a truly unique wonderful experience. I hope you do go and enjoy the experience.

This is, without question, London's best historic full-service five star hotel. The high tea is, as others have noted in their reviews, top-knotch. The hotel itself though may not be what you need/want. There are better luxury hotels (in Mayfair), better business hotels (in the City and Canary Wharf), and top-knotch hotels (large and boutique) near the Theatre District. Unless you're trying to stay in all of the worlds historic hotels, this should probably be fairly far down on your list.

Can't fault the Savoy in any way. Always look forward to returning, whether to see Anna lead the Beaufort Bar or to enjoy a warm welcome back from Tony and team at the front door. All staff helpful and attentive provide excellent service. Rooms are comfortable and location centrally situated to go further to West End or to the City

The Savoy is the place to go to experience the English tradition of "high tea". Petite chicken and cucumber sandwiches followed by a birdcage shaped tray full of petite sweets. All washed down with English breakfast tea.

A visit to the bar will require the possession of a credit card with a hefty card limit. Saying that, it's a bit of an occasion and worth a visit if only once in your life.

The Savoy is legendary and staying here is absolutely a treat. The rooms are warmly decorated and the pillowtop beds are like heaven. There are old world marbles everywhere and modern hotels are just not built like this anymore. The service is warm and professional. Checking out will be a very difficult task.

When I went to enter 'Afternoon Tea at the Savoy' in my google calendar, I opened a new event and found it interesting that 'Afternoon Tea at the Ritz' was the example title of an event in London. Both tea's are something everyone must do once.

The Savoy lived up expectations with a live piano player and beautiful setting. I even had a chance to sneak into the Lancaster room that is furnished in an 18c French style and featured in several movies such as Notting Hill.

Now that this hotel has been renovated it is truly back to being first class! Right on the River Thames, located on the Strand it is opulence at its greatest. Totally awesome entrance, service, bar. If you can afford a suite it can get no more decadant than this place.

It's not all that impressive when you first drive up the circular drive of The Savoy. That is, it's like many other 5-star hotels you can visit throughout Europe -- and the US. But that is where the similarity ends. Upon entering the lobby you are greeted by someone as if you are entering their house. Not only was our party of four checked in all at once (people just appeared behind the desk to do that), but once you were checked in, that very same person came from behind the desk to show you personally to your room!

The room was glorious, as it should be, but there were two standouts, which, of course, were properly pointed out by the person who brought me to my room. First, the subtle push button by the bed, which was to be pushed to summon my PRIVATE BUTLER, whose sole job it was to cater to my every whim. The second was this wonderful 'rain' shower head, that was 2 feet in diameter!

I did have an occasion to summon the butler, to have my suit pressed before my company presentation. My suit was whisked away and brought back inn short order - it actually snuck back into my closet upon my return from dinner.

The Savoy is a wonderful mixture of the ultimate in luxury and visiting your best friend (albeit rich best friend!) at home.
