LONDON’S prestigious Savoy Hotel has suffered a delay in its UKP100m restoration programme which means that it will not open until the first quarter of 2010. It was supposed to be ready by May of this year. London is in the throes of a major five-star hotel expansion with the Langham in Portland Place just opened, the Four Seasons at Hyde Park Corner in a similar state as the Savoy, and Corinthia working hard on their Whitehall/Charing Cross project. Fairmont Hotels, who will operate the property, blame the delay on “two key factors”, namely the poor condition of the hotel’s services infrastructure, and the discovery of original design elements that needed to be protected. www.fairmont.com/promo/savoy
