New York, dopo un restauro milionario il St. Regis si prepara per la riapertura

The St. Regis New York is proud to announce the hotel is concluding an extensive renovation to culminate in a striking reveal this month. With renovated and redesigned guestrooms, suites and public spaces and the debut of the new King Cole Bar & Salon under renowned New York chef and restaurateur, John DeLucie, The St. Regis New York will unveil a bold new era of glamour at Manhattan’s best address. The renovation will reflect the hotel’s enduring legacy while infusing the timeless allure which has defined the Fifth Avenue icon since its founding by John Jacob Astor IV over a century ago.  “Since it opened in 1904, The St. Regis New York has entertained every generation of society with the unique ability to capture the ever-changing spirit of the city and stay synonymous with impeccable style and inherent glamour,” said Paul James, Global Brand Leader, St. Regis, The Luxury Collection and W Hotels Worldwide. “This renovation marks a momentous occasion for the St. Regis brand, a New York icon, now celebrated at 31 hotels around the world, each setting the stage for the next generation of luxury travelers.” The multi-million dollar, comprehensive renovation at The St. Regis New York culminated this November 2013, with redesigned guest rooms, suites, hallways and public spaces. HDC, the renowned interior design firm that transformed The St. Regis Florence, has created an aesthetic based on a “timeless is modern” philosophy, embracing the design legacy of the hotel while infusing contemporary style. This fresh and sophisticated approach will marry original design elements, such as the crystal Waterford chandeliers and elegant crown moldings, with beautiful, large-format photographic artwork, vibrant-hued fabrics and stunning beveled mirrors. The Fifth Avenue landmark will reveal a new vision for its public spaces as well. In the iconic lobby of The St. Regis New York, the renovation will reincorporate lost architectural elements, including opening up oval windows above the front desk which were part of the original design of the hotel, while simultaneously infusing fresh touches through updated furnishings and amenities. Following the 2013 renovation, the beloved classic elements of the lobby and salon spaces will shine brighter in a contemporary context.
As Starwood continues to invest in the creation, renovation and restoration of its global luxury portfolio, it remains essential to celebrate the St. Regis brand’s heritage and its flagship on Fifth Avenue. Engaging a new generation of luxury travelers and tastemakers, the St. Regis brand will debut a new era of glamour this fall at The St. Regis New York: the foundation for all St. Regis properties around the world.
