The Savoy

I had the joy, pleasure and privilege of spending a night at The Savoy last weekend. The landmark Edwardian and Art Deco hotel has re-opened after a multi-million pound renovation, and I can report that it is looking truly splendid. As the favoured haunt of Hollywood legends such as Frank Sinatra, Marlene Dietrich, Marilyn Monroe and Katharine Hepburn, it oozes old fashioned glamour and style. Drop in for a drink in the moody, low-lit Beaufort Bar, or just gawp at the striking and artfully arranged interiors.

Marlene Dietrich had her own suite at the hotel. 
She always had a dozen pink roses and a bottle of Dom Perignon waiting in her room. Like her style.
