Antique Hotel Key Used By Broadway Royalty

This piece was consigned to auction from Broadway’s Shubert family and has an interesting history.

During their many overseas trips to London and other parts of Europe, the Shubert brothers frequented London’s luxurious Savoy Hotel. There, they had special use of the luxury suite #616 which was accessed by this original hotel key.

The fob is marked Savoy Hotel, London, and measures approximately 3” inches long. It is marked for hotel room #616 on the reverse. The original room key hangs from the fob, also marked #616.

Claude Monet Sketches “Waterloo Bridge” from a Nearby Suite

Room #616 is located just a few doors away from the balcony suite that French artist, Claude Monet, once found inspiration. Monet made use of rooms 610-611 during his 1899 stay, and rooms 510-511 in 1900-1901.

During one of his stays at the Savoy Hotel, Monet gazed out upon the view of the Thames River, capturing the iconic vista of Waterloo Bridge in a series of sketches and paintings. His observations of the changing light and atmosphere over the Thames would later influence his series of paintings depicting the bridge.
