In May 2016, The Savoy, a Fairmont Managed Hotel, unveiled The Savoy Suite, a luxury suite on the sixth floor of the riverside of the hotel, which can be configured as one or two bedroom accommodation.
As well as providing the setting for an authentically London stay, The Savoy Suite feature a changing private art collection by a contemporary artist adorning the walls of the suite. Guests staying in the suite have the unique opportunity to enjoy their own private exhibition within their accommodation. The Savoy Suite, an Artist’s Residence also host regular Artist’s Salons, a chance for the artist whose work is displayed in the suite to introduce their work to guests during an informal evening event.
Open and light-filled, the layout of The Savoy Suite, an Artist’s Residence exaggerates the unrivalled views of the River Thames and iconic London landmarks across two large windows. It was this same view that inspired Claude Monet to paint his famous series of London bridges as he resided in this same suite for the first of three lengthy stays at The Savoy between 1899 and 1901. Since then, so prominent are The Savoy’s links with the art world that it was deemed appropriate to honour all artists, both past and living, who have been inspired by, and continue to take inspiration from, The Savoy.
The Savoy Suite, an Artist’s Residence is available to book for anyone that can afford to pay up to £6,500 per night.
