The Savoy is a luxury hotel located in the Strand in the City of Westminster in central London. Over a century old, the Savoy has been named one of ‘the most famous and iconic hotels in London’. As part of their refurbishment in 2010, they wanted to add a unique amenity to their Riverside suites.
We provided a core selection of 80 titles. The collections aim was to appeal to guests and enliven their stay in the city by creating a great sense of place. Subjects included Art, Design and Architecture. Also included was a biography on Churchill, literature from Dickens and cocktail guides to provide a diverse range of material. We installed the books into the suites and gave core training to staff on how to introduce and explain the collection to guests. Each book came with a Savoy branded bookplate created by us to personalise the collection.
