best hotels in London: The Savoy

Courtesy of the Savoy Hotel

No. 6 The Savoy

When the Savoy opened in the heart of the theater district in 1889, it introduced many hotel firsts: the use of electricity, en-suite bathrooms, and elevators. That's why, ever since, the property has played host to members of the royal family, world leaders, and celebrities of the stage and screen. The 268 rooms follow in the line of the original Edwardian and Art Deco aesthetic even after a 3-year Pierre Yves Rochon redesign. Legendary is the kitchen where Escoffier reigned, and the halls that hosted Elizabeth II's coronation ball. To relive it all, visit the Savoy's own on-site museum for displays commemorating the property's storied past.
