[edit] Information

The Savoybrown text When the hotel first opened in 1889, it was the height of modernity and the first hotel to have electric lights, lifts and en-suite bathrooms. The Savoy is a documentary series which sees the cameras charting the inner workings of the luxury hotel's renovation. General Manager Kiaran MacDonald is in charge of the operation but things are not going to plan with the original budget already exceeded and the scheduled completion date missed. The cameras also follow life in the hotel following the completion of the renovation. The documentary revisits the hotel 18 months later when the end is in sight. Staff are starting to be hired, carpet is being laid and the £80,000 glass fountain is being lifted into place at the hotel’s entrance. It is crunch time for one of the world’s most famous hotels. After a £220 million refurbishment lasting almost three years London’s Savoy Hotel is almost ready to re-open its doors. With the opulent décor now finished the pressure is on the team of old hands and new recruits to ensure the service lives up to the luxurious surroundings. From the butlers that will offer a bespoke service for the guests in the most expensive suites, to the chefs and waiting staff in the new River Restaurant, the pressure is really on. We witness the team’s attempts to woo top celebrities back to the world famous hotel and find out whether the service lives up to their expectations once they’re through the door. And when the new owner arrives for Prince Charles’ grand opening we find out whether, after all the hard work, he thinks his money’s been well spent. Narrated by Hugh Bonneville.
