Legendary landmark of elegance
The St. Regis Hotel has stood as an oasis of refinement and hospitality in the heart of midtown Manhattan since its opening in 1904. A Beaux Art landmark, the St. Regis has been awarded the highest accolades in the hotel industry, the Mobil Travel Guide Five-Star Award and AAA Five Diamond Award.
These high commendations originate from the St. Regis’ commitment to dedicated and incomparable service. There is a residential atmosphere personified by the unsurpassed butler service and careful attention to detail in every aspect of the guest experience. In the tradition of residential hotels who also host longer term guests, the St. Regis can count among its former residents, Ernest Hemingway, Marlene Dietrich, Salvador Dali, Marilyn Monroe and Joe DiMaggio.
Guest rooms at the St. Regis feature opulent furnishings and soothing color schemes with every detail considered for the guest’s comfort. Rich textures, silk wall coverings and period furniture continue the luxe environment. High tech amenities are skillfully integrated. Especially noteworthy are the suites at the St. Regis, spacious and each one individually designed.

What we’ve heard: One of Manhattan’s most special experiences is a drink in the King Cole Bar. The bar features a three-part mural by Maxfield Parrish which was executed in 1904 and originally graced the Knickerbocker Hotel. It was moved to the St. Regis in the thirties. This year the paintings were restored to their original radiance, removing decades of grime, cigarette smoke and more than one carelessly poured martini. Also noteworthy at the bar is its claim as an originator of the bloody mary, called a ‘red snapper.’
