The St Regis Hotel, New York
Providing first class service since 1904, the St Regis Hotel, New York, is the epitome of timeless luxury. For ten consecutive years, it has been awarded the AAA Five Diamond award and is also the recipient of a Forbes 5* award as well as the Mobil Travel Guide Five Star Award, and for good reason.
Named after St. Jean-François Régis who was known for giving hospitality to travellers, the St Regis holds suit with its namesake. All guests receive the careful attention of a dedicated personal butler who is available 24 hours a day to take care of everything - from a personal wake-up call complete with morning coffee and weather forecast, to packing and unpacking of suitcases. Guests can also enjoy the royal treatment with complimentary drop offs within a 10-block radius by a chauffeur-driven Bentley, or special experiences such as a private dining picnic at Central Park prepared by personal chefs.
The distinctive Beaux-Arts architecture, so synonymous with opulence, extends throughout the hotel. As you arrive, you are welcomed by a decadent marble foyer of guided coving and trompe-l'oeil ceilings. In the 256 guest rooms and suites, crystal chandeliers, silk canopy beds and marble bathrooms are paired with contemporary touches to give a classic yet modern atmosphere.
No stay at the St Regis is complete without a visit to the Astor Court Restaurant. Surrounded by carved stone pillars and a grand raised ceiling, guests can experience fine dining for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Afternoon tea at Astor Court is particularly recommended, where dining is accompanied by a live harpist. Or, spend evenings in the iconic King Cole Bar – told to be the birthplace of the Bloody Mary cocktail.
And, located in the heart of midtown Manhattan along New York’s most famous street, Fifth Avenue, The St Regis also provides ideal access to the quintessential New York experience. Must-see sights and attractions such as the Empire State Building, the Guggenheim, the Rockefeller Centre and Central Park are all within walking distance of the foyer of the hotel, including the Museum of Modern Art which is just two blocks away. The latest fashions and exclusive stores also await just around the corner. Fifth Avenue or “Millionaire’s Row” is also well known for hosting the flagship stores of countless uber-luxurious brands including Louis Vuitton, Harry Winston and Henri Bendel.
