The St. Regis New York is thrilled to announce the September 2012 debut of a one-of-a-kind hotel suite designed as a collaboration between the masterful minds at St. Regis Hotels & Resorts, part of Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Inc. and Bentley Motors, providing guests with the luxury, craftsmanship and style of both exquisite brands. The Bentley Suite joins The Dior Suite and The Tiffany Suite as part of the exclusive collection of Designer Suites at the hotel, which was built by John Jacob Astor IV in 1904. This announcement follows on the heels of a global partnership between Starwood's Luxury Brands and Bentley Motors.
“The St. Regis New York has a long and storied history of partnering with brands who offer our guests unparalleled access and experiences,” stated General Manager Paul H. F. Nash. “Bentley has long stood alone as the world's premier maker of hand-crafted automobiles. Their impeccable attention to detail and dedication to artisanship makes them the ideal collaborator for this beloved hotel.”
The Bentley Suite features an entryway foyer, one bedroom, one and a half baths, an expansive dining room and living room complete with floor to ceiling windows on the 15th floor. The suite, debuting in September 2012, will be available starting at $9,500 plus tax per night. Guests will be treated to the St. Regis hallmark services including signature St. Regis Butler Service, in-suite champagne bar, and complimentary access to the 2013 St. Regis Bentley Mulsanne within a 10-block radius of the hotel. The St. Regis New York will have the first 2013 Bentley Mulsanne in the United States, which has been customized exclusively for the hotel.
Upon entering the expansive 1,700 square foot suite through a set of double doors, guests are greeted with defining characteristics of the luxury automobile brand: a blend of cream and neutral tones, set against the rich wood finishes of the handcrafted furnishings found throughout the space. The suite's design boasts a unique juxtaposition of old world elegance and modern sleekness that speaks to both brands. The black leather tile floor pairs perfectly with a linen colored perforated diamond leather wall stitched with one of the forty-two custom Bentley leathers. A metallic silver mirror, inspired by a carbon fiber wheel rim sits above an accent table evocative of the dashboard of a Bentley. Guests immediately feel that the suite is both elegant and daring, combining the modern yet glamorous style of the brand with the timeless and impeccable style of The St. Regis New York.
The dining room features an expansive media wall including a large TV as well as four Breitling clocks marking the time in New York, Riyadh, London and Moscow. Bold, black trim is set against cream walls with artwork that displays the heritage of the Bentley brand: images taken from the brand's founding up through present day. A crystal chandelier adorns the ceiling, while a sumptuous leather rug and dark stained white oak floors bring to life the understated elegance of the brand.
In the living room, ivory walls accented with crisp black crown molding lines the ceiling, ultra-luxe tufted leather sofa and wing chairs provide ultimate comfort and relaxation, and a crystal chandelier decorates the center of the room. Luxurious menswear inspired herringbone drapery run from floor to ceiling framing windows that provide breathtaking overlooking Fifth Avenue and Central Park.
The bedroom features a custom sleigh bed with the classic Bentley burled wood, complemented by the warm color palette of aubergine, warm grays and ivory. The ‘root burrow' wood throughout the room is reminiscent of the brand's signature Mulsanne model's exotic natural wood veneers.
“The debut of the Bentley Suite at The St. Regis New York will bring to life our global partnership with Bentley Motors, exemplifying the heritage and commitment to excellence of both brands,” said Paul James, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis and The Luxury Collection Hotels & Resorts. “As St. Regis continues to grow globally, we look forward to offering our discerning guests experiences with Bentley that far surpasses their expectations.”
This year, St. Regis announced a global partnership with Bentley, offering guests, residents and customers with exclusive experiences such as driving programs, special events and brand initiatives around the world. Additionally, the St. Regis brand has selected Bentley as the house fleet for its hotels and resorts because of Bentley's shared values of craftsmanship, style and sophistication, allowing guests to explore must-see destinations in unparalleled style.
