Iconic London hotel The Savoy has opened its riverside suites to dinner guests for the first time ever, perfect for those who are looking for a luxury private dining experience without having to fork out on an overnight stay.
In the face of challenges presented by the Coronavirus pandemic, the legendary London hotel has made the rather shrewd move to open up its selection of riverside suites to dinner guests. Parties of two will be allowed to take over one of the five-star hotel’s riverside suites to enjoy a five-course meal, all the while soaking in views of the River Thames and other famous London landmarks, such as the London Eye and the Houses of Parliament. Sounds like a pretty impressive date night venue to us.
Normally to stay overnight in a suite of this kind, guests pay upwards of £2,000. While you won’t be staying the night here and will have to leave at 10pm in accordance with new government guidelines, you can still enjoy all that the room has to offer and some delicious food too, in complete and utter privacy. Costing a fraction of the price of an overnight stay, dinner for two in the suite will set you back £300 - hardly cheap, but still far less expensive than a stay in the hotel.
There are three rooms available each night for this unique experience and diners can reserve their spot via The Savoy’s website. The hotel reopened for overnight stays on 1 October and while not all of its facilities are back up and running, both Gordon Ramsay’s The Savoy Grill and the Beaufort Bar are back to business as usual.
