HotelFacts: #8: Count Peter of Savoy

The Savoy London

For the eighth in our series of Hotel Facts, we return to The Savoy … again … (seeing a pattern here?)

A jewel of an Art Deco refit in 1930, the new frontage of The Savoy London included a 1904 sculpture of Count Peter of Savoy as the hotel is built on the former site of his home, The Palace of Savoy.

The statue was winched up to sit aside the new striking Savoy sign in the rather daring Art Deco style.  By the way, the road leading to The Savoy is still the only one in London where you drive on the right hand side of the road.
