Looks like I was mistaken earlier in the thread. The room I posted appears to be the one from your first picture

Those strange louver light things look so bad in that room. I predict they will come down in 10 years.

Just walked by the building and can confirm that the stained glass has been installed in the Savoy Grill portion of the hotel. Great to see it back!

Getting really close. Peered in all the windows a while ago. The spaces look really awesome.

Wow. That look is about 180 degrees from the way I expected them to go with the dining room. So I guess the remnants of the old Savoy Grill, the nostalgia the article mentions, are limited to the bar?

Don't think I would like dining under magenta lighting. Wonder if you can be served in what is now the cocktail lounge?

Correct. I toured the space a few weeks back and that is what I noticed.

If you toured the space before the renovation, this should be no surprise. The historic elements in the upper floors were mostly removed.

One of the cooler historic preservation efforts was the fact they were able to retain almost all of the original sinks in the hotel room bathrooms.

Love the "Rules of the Bar" at the end of the Bar menu.
