The Savoy is the UK’s most historic luxury hotel. Right on the River Thames, it is perfectly placed at the cultural heart of one of the world’s most exciting cities.
The Savoy was the first purpose-built deluxe hotel in London, setting new standards for luxury, comfort and service unheard of in the hotel world of the day. As the first hotel of its type in London, it was a magnet for the wealthy, the famous, the glamorous, and even the notorious; their stories have accrued over the decades to become part of the legend of this truly unique hotel.
At the forefront of the luxury hotel scene for 130 years, The Savoy welcomes guests for an experience that continuously evolves to meet the desires of the modern traveller. 267 rooms and suites are accompanied by some of the most well-known restaurants and bars in London, alongside magnificent and varied meeting and events spaces.
The Savoy Hotel and Gucci
This grand London landmark holds a very special place in Gucci’s heart as it is where the founder of the House, Guccio Gucci, worked as a liftboy in his youth. This experience led him to develop a love for luxurious luggage and leather goods, which he used as inspiration for the creation of his own business in Florence in 1921. Now, exactly 100 years later, Gucci is celebrating its centenary with a number of initiatives at The Savoy, which stands as a symbolic home for the House in London.
Now, the partnership’s next iteration is the transformation of The Savoy’s Royal Suite into a reflection of the Gucci world through the presence of furniture, furnishings and decorative items from the Gucci Décor collection. In addition, art and antiquities from auctioneers Christie’s have been carefully chosen to complement the aesthetic, which has been conceived to harmonize with the design and heritage of The Savoy. A wide range of the items in the Royal Suite added by Gucci and Christie’s will be available for purchase, making the Royal Suite an exceptionally exclusive showroom as well as one of the most luxurious hotel suites in London with its parade of rooms spanning the entire length of the fifth floor, giving unrivalled views over the River Thames.
