Introducing our new Savoy Book Butlers
At The Savoy we have recently introduced our new Book Butlers offering, a brand new service, and first of its kind, as part of our ongoing literary programme.
Overseeing a collection of 40 titles presented in a beautifully illustrated library menu, the Savoy Book Butlers will be on hand to accommodate suite guests’ literary needs.
The service was dreamt up by Damian Barr, Literary Ambassador to The Savoy, award-winning writer, columnist and salonnière. Damian has been hosting his renowned Literary Salons in the glittering Lancaster Ballroom since 2016, inviting established and emerging stars to share new stories and reveal their own personal tales. Damian has also helped the hotel revigorate and relaunch their Writer in Residence programme at the end of 2018 with best-selling author Sarah Perry (After Me Comes The Flood, The Essex Serpent and Melmoth), and upcoming residents including Aminatta Forna and Garth Greenwell.
Damian collaborated with some of our own book loving colleagues to curate this bespoke mini library, available for all suite guests looking for a good read during their stay.
The library will be updated seasonally to include the latest and most relevant titles. Children’s in-room libraries are also available to entertain younger Savoy guests.
