The Savoy Hotel in central London was built by Richard D'Oyly Carte and first opened in 1889. It was Britain’s first grand hotel to establish bathrooms in nearly all the lavish rooms and to have electric lifts and lights and constant running water throughout the hotel. The Savoy’s illustrious history of glitzy guests includes Winston Churchill, The Beatles, Judy Garland, Marilyn Monroe, Coco Chanel, Frank Sinatra, and the Prince of Wales Edward VII. The hotel even boasts accommodating Claude Monet while he drew and painted views from his room of the River Thames. It is also recognized for holding extravagant parties such as the “Gondola Party” in which the central courtyard was deluged to house a massive gondola and scenery was fabricated to recreate historic Venice.
