A spokeperson for the hotel said that four to 500 people can be catered for in one of 12 rooms. These will be used for meetings and events.

There will also be the option of an a la carte menu for up to 500 people.

In April this year, The Savoy told Event that rumours of a hotel sale were unfounded.

"The Savoy will once again lay claim to its long-standing status as London's premier social destination when it unveils the culmination of a circa £100m restoration programme in early 2010 - the most expensive hotel refurbishment in London's history," said a Savoy spokesperson.

"The responsibility for this extensive restoration is being handled by the renowned designer, Yves Rochon, who has earned special recognition for his work on other landmark hotels such as the George V in Paris and the Hermitage in Monaco."

Early 2010 is penned as the projected opening date. Art deco and Edwardian styling is expected throughout.
