The Savoy is a luxury hotel located on the Strand in central London.

The hotel is now owned and managed by Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, who also own New York's iconic Plaza Hotel.

The Savoy is a subsidiary of Accor, the largest hospitality company in Europe.

It was built by the impresario Richard D'Oyly Carte with profits from his Gilbert and Sullivan opera productions, which made it the first in the Savoy group of hotels and restaurants owned by Carte's family for over a century.

The Savoy opened on August 6, 1889, making it 132 years old.

The hotel has 267 rooms, four restaurants, the oldest cocktail bar in London and 600 staff members making it all run smoothly.

Among the staff are ten butlers who serve the 67 suites.

Gordon Ramsay owns The Savoy Grill that is embedded within the hotel.
