The Fairmont-managed Savoy Hotel in London, UK, will reopen this week following the completion of three years of renovation.
The entire building, including 268 rooms and a number of bars and restaurants, were renovated at a cost of £220m ($349.4m).
The restoration has introduced environmental technologies and efficiencies.
For example, a combined heat and power plant will reduce the hotel’s reliance on the national grid by approximately 50% and an system will reclaim the heat from all kitchen appliances to preheat domestic hot water.
The hotel, which was closed in 2007, also partners with the Thames 21 charitable organisation to help maintain the stretch of River Thames in front of the Savoy.
Fairmont is owned by FRHI Holdings, a leading global hotel company with 95 hotels under the Fairmont, Raffles, and Swissotel brands.
