St Regis New York undergoing renovation

15 Jan 2014 by Clement Huang

The St Regis New York will soon be completing an extensive renovation and redesign of its guestrooms, suites and public spaces.

As one of Manhattan’s most historic and iconic hotels, the multi-million US dollar renovation aims to create an aesthetic based on a “timeless is modern” philosophy that embraces the original design of the century-old hotel, while infusing an up-to-date style.

The guestroom floors now feature chic, black, lacquer painted doors, textured fabric walls and five distinct colour palettes in the entryway of each floor. Guestrooms have been updated to blend classical-looking marble tiled entryways, fabrics with custom furnishings and modern technology.

Meanwhile, the suites have also been revised to better complement the re-imagined guestrooms. The Imperial Suite, for instance, will feature a mix of European décor and East Asian furnishings, while the ever-impressive Presidential Suite has been redesigned as a exotic collector’s suite, where guests can indulge in luxury art and treasures from around the globe.

The renovation will also see the debut of the new King Cole Bar & Salon. Originally known as the King Cole Bar, the dining venue will see an expansion in which a lounge with an open fireplace will be added. Headed by New York chef and restaurateur John DeLucie, the new restaurant will offer modern American cuisine with an international twist.

Finally, the Fifth Avenue landmark will also sport a new look for its public spaces. The lobby will reincorporate lost architectural elements, including the oval windows above the front desk – which were part of the original hotel design – while infusing a modern touch through updated furnishings and amenities.

The newly renovated St Regis New York is expected to debut this fall.
