Needing little introduction, The Savoy is one of London’s most legendary hotels. It sits right on the bank of the River Thames (the only five-star hotel in the city to do so) and was the first luxury hotel in all of Britain. It has had many famous patrons during its 130-year history, and many of the guest rooms pay homage to them — the Marlene Dietrich Suite has a bouquet of pink roses that the actress requested whenever she stayed. The Royal Suite is the grandest of them all: It occupies the entire riverside of the fifth floor and has a master bedroom with four-poster bed and a Savoir mattress. The open-plan layout is perfect for entertaining; the sitting room leads into a spacious living room with its own bar — have your butler whip up a cocktail and enjoy the incredible views of the London Eye, Canary Wharf and beyond.
