The Savoy

Richard Bryant / The Savoy Hotel
Covent Garden
FINE HOTELS & RESORTS MEMBER

This grand dame in the heart of the Theater District channels the sort of stay that could be described as erstwhile: the decor isn’t as exciting as others in its class, and generally feel less residential than its competition (though The Royal and the Savoy suites were redesigned in 2016 after feedback that they felt too stiff). Access to the theater and views of the Thames are the reasons to book; make sure to request a riverside room. (Rooms, from $520)
