Except for service, the style of the Savoy is not "Grand Hotel." There are no immense, opulent public rooms with soaring ceilings and dazzling chandeliers. The lobby, in fact, is quite small but the scaled-down atmosphere exudes quality and competence. It is a place for heavy hitters keeping a low-profile; a home-away-from home for the mysterious super rich on a Bahnhofstrasse "bank" holiday.

The Savoy's uniformed staff is a precision outfit, ever alert to the needs of guests. Forgive us if we make the Savoy sound coldly efficient; it is not. It is warmly efficient. What we wrote after our last visit in 1991 still holds: "The Savoy is owned by a Swiss bank but Manfred and Christina Hörger manage it as if it were their own. They live on the premises, are visible and available at all hours and treat guests with the special warmth that is unique to small, family-operated hotels."
