The St. Regis has been the standard-bearer for New York glamour since titan JJ Astor built it in 1904. The tower of glittering elegance got a multimillion restoration in 1991, retaining its Old World charms. From attentive butlers on every floor to a three-bedroom Presidential Suite that’s hosted heads of state and Dali, accommodations are as legendary as the storied King Cole Bar and best-kept-secret Thornwillow library lounge.
In the Area
From the corner of 5th Avenue and E. 55th St., guests have some of the world’s best shopping at their doorstep, with Cartier, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bergdorf Goodman and FAO Schwarz a stone’s throw away. Rockefeller Center, Radio City Music Hall and the MoMA are within walking distance, and Museum Mile stretches just north of Central Park a few blocks up. The upscale gastronomical opportunities in this area are outstanding: Per Se, Jean-Georges and Marea are all within a couple of blocks. Afterward, take in a show at Jazz at Lincoln Center, which is located in the Time Warner Center on Columbus Circle and is home to a 15-piece big band led by Wynton Marsalis.
How to Get There
We are loyal Marriott travelers and I was very happy to find that the St. Regis is now a member of the new Bon Voy network. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the St. Regis and will be very hard pressed to stay anywhere else while in New York. While we were there, whenever anyone would ask how our stay was, I would say "absolute perfection". There was no other way to describe it. Not for the faint of wallet, but if you're looking for the best, this is it!
- CHECK IN/ROOM... We were greeted warmly and were very happy when we were upgraded from a Superior to a Grand Luxe room. The room was ready despite checking in early! Our room on the 7th floor was huge by NYC standards and we even had two sinks in the bathroom which was nice, especially for New York. Decor was opulent. They have managed to find the perfect balance between old and new and the end result is true luxury with a modern, clean feel.
- BUTLER SERVICE... This is the first time I've ever had my own butler and I fear it has ruined me for all future hotel stays! I believe each floor has a designated butler. They are available at the touch of a button. Our fabulous butler arrived at our room immediately upon check-in to introduce himself and offered to unpack our bags which we were thrilled to let him do as it allowed us to go to lunch after a long morning of traveling. The butler also brought French pressed coffee every morning which was a very nice touch. Lastly, our butler absolutely saved our trip when my husband realized at the 11th hour that he forgot to pack cuff links. Minutes after speaking, she arrived with not one set of cuff links, but multiple options!
HOUSE CLEANING... room was gorgeous and clean. Turn down service was impeccable.
CONCIERGE... great suggestions with a smile
BELLHOP/DOORMAN/CAR SERVICE... all went above and beyond. We enjoyed taking the Bentley to dinner one night.
KING COLE BAR...we had been to the KCB for a drink before and loved it for its cool, clubby atmosphere. What a fabulous option to have just steps from the elevator. It's definitely not a secret as it was always packed!
Thank you, St. Regis. We will be back!
Our room was a little on the small side but came with a Butler, who was very special and most efficient. We came up for a wedding and our clothes were wrinkled from the travel.The matter was handled faster than we requested and the hotel was booked.
As a matter of fact, usual check in is 4 PM we arrived prior to 12. They took my cell and we went to lunch. The room was ready within an hour and a half.
We went to the Armani Restaurant on 56th and Fifth. Phenomenal choice, food, ambiance, the views ( Harry Winston's & Vanderbilt's mansion) beyond words.
We saw Pretty Woman and that capped a wonderful 1st day ending at Wolfgangs for some small plates and Martini's .
The next day was breakfast at the hotel, elegant and very mixed upscale crowd.
A league of nations; NY !!
Wonderful, people watching, then preparation for the most fantastically over done garishly cultural family wedding I've ever been to.
A real " Jaw Dropper", had an amazing time. Got back 4 AM and still ready to go
I love NY.....for a long weekend
This was my second stay at the St. Regis NYC and this time I invited my granddaughter from out-of-town. Christina, at the front desk, took care of us like Princesses! It was my granddaughter’s first visit to Manhattan and staying at the super elegant St. Regis enhanced the experience. She absolutely loved everything about the hotel - the scrumptious flax seed blueberry pancakes at breakfast, the sophisticated lunch with ambience at the King Cole bar, the perfectly prepared salmon at dinner, the luxurious baths she took at night and the specially arranged ride by doorman Matt in the Hotel mega luxury car. The entire staff was amazing as usual and I am already planning my next stay! It was like a fantasy vacation - our accommodations were heavenly. Thank you all so much and kudos to you! Ann G.
I went to the St Regis for an anniversary brunch. It was a really special occasion, or that was the intent. The home of the original bloody mary, has clearly fallen from the forefront. Countless others have replicated and improved their recipe. The other menu items were equally underwhelming and overpriced. If you are looking for fine dining, please find someplace else. This place has seen its glory days and is now just getting by. Such a shame.
What a surprise, it did not have the musty scent of being built in 1904! Our suite was meticulously clean, quiet, luxurious and very comfortable. Service was very professional and prompt. Unfortunately, guests have to climb a few steps to the ground floor and push their way through the heavy revolving doors. The lobby was tiny as typical of old buildings but one doorman on duty was inadequate. Not recommended for guests with poor vision and gait disorders.
