About The St. Regis New York
Just off Fifth Avenue and 55th Street, one of the most exclusive addresses in New York City, is the historic St. Regis New York hotel. In 2005 it was named "Best Hotel in the World" by Institutional Investor Magazine. The St. Regis has offered its hospitality to celebrities from Alfred Hitchcock to Barbara Walters, and Salvador Dali and Marlene Dietrich are among the celebrities who kept apartments there. Close to Central Park, the Museum of Modern Art, and the opulent shopping of Fifth Avenue, it provides its visitors with an unparalleled combination of location and luxury.
Extending from Central Park South to Madison Square Park, Midtown Manhattan is the heart of the city, with more attractions, offices and legendary stores per square foot than anywhere else in New York. Two blocks north of the St. Regis are the wide open spaces of Central Park; two blocks south is the Museum of Modern Art. Rockefeller Center, the New York Public Library, Bryant Park, Radio City Music Hall and Carnegie Hall are all within a ten-minute walk; Broadway's theater district and the beautifully restored Grand Central Terminal are also within walking distance.
The St. Regis is a classic grand hotel that offers luxurious accommodations and five-star amenities. Its founder, the American tycoon John Jacob Astor IV, wanted the St. Regis to feel like a home away from home for his friends. To this day, the hotel combines luxury with discreet, world-class service, including personal butlers on every floor and guest use of the hotel's chauffeured Bentley for local travel. The hotel's Beaux-Arts style extends from the gabled stone and copper roof to the murals painted on the ceiling of the quiet Rococo lobby to Astor's original marble staircase. Among the St. Regis' most famous accommodations are the Tiffany and Dior suites, designed in consultation with the two fashion houses and reflecting the aesthetics of each. With only 164 guest rooms and 65 suites, the St. Regis epitomizes exclusivity and intimacy.
For dining, the St. Regis features the Astor Court, which serves international cuisine and afternoon tea, and the King Cole Bar, the birthplace of the Bloody Mary. The basement houses the hotel's fitness center, spa, barber and other bespoke shops.
