The Savoy to Close, Reopen in 2009

May 28, 2007 By: Jennifer Merritt Travel Agent

Fairmont's long-awaited renovation of The Savoy hotel in London is expected to begin this December. A Fairmont Hotels & Resorts spokesperson said that the hotel will stop taking reservations that month and The Savoy would subsequently close for approximately 16 months. The Savoy will close for renovations in December

The spokesperson added that The Savoy would resume taking
reservations about two to three months before its currently unscheduled debut
date in 2009.

The $200 million-plus renovation includes upgrading suites,
guest rooms, hallways, public areas and the River Restaurant. The Savoy's general manager,
Kiaran MacDonald, says that the refurbishment will stay true to the hotel's art
deco heritage and traditional English design.

"It was a difficult decision to close down the
hotel," MacDonald says, "but we could not envision disrupting our
guests on a daily basis. A project of this scope could take much longer if the
hotel remained open for business and we wish to stick to a rigorous schedule in
order to reopen as quickly as possible."
