I hope this review clarifies some older reviews I came across before booking my stay at The Savoy. Prior to booking my stay at Savoy I was skeptical due to some avg/bad reviews I read both on trip advisor and other websites.
I booked my room at The Savoy the night before my stay at approx 1 am. Upon arrival, the valet was courteous and attentive although the bell hop took a few moments to arive it was not a problem for me. The front desk staff were extremely friendly and willingly helped answer any questions I had.
My first impression of the room was far beyond that of what both me and my girl friend were expecting. Double doors leading onto an extra large balcony/patio area approx 15 x 30 with lounge chairs and table overlooking the ocean. The room is as advertised, a suite, and the bathroom fits according. Double sinks, a shower that could fit atleast 6 people even though there was only one small shower head it was enough for us. The bed and other features in the room were more than adequate for our stay.
As soon as the bell hop delivered our luggage (approx. 10 - 15 mins) we headed straight for the beach. The staff on the beach were extremely nice, helpful, and upbeat which seemed to be a reoccuring theme among the staff throughout the hotel. Every staff member offered a hello and wished me and my gf a good day.
Regarding location, it could not have been any better. After the beach we walked to one of the many sidewalk restaurants along ocean drive (5 min walk). The Savoy is in a prime location in walkin distance to both collins and lincoln drive approx 2 miles or less.
I could go on and on abt the positives abt the hotel but im sure whoever is reading would get tired of reading.
Althought I rated this hotel 5 stars there was still room for improvement as my rating was in accordance with both price and location.
No hot tub by the pool! It would have been nice although not necessary.
Workmanship in the rooms and various areas around resort were slightly subpar but still acceptable especially for the price. However, this was definitely made up for by location.
Ive also stayed in the Fountainbleau which was extremely nice and prestigous but out of the way and overpriced for what we wanted to accomplish.
