The historic St. Regis New York hotel has teamed up with Bentley Motors to create a one-of-a-kind signature suite named for the luxury auto maker. The debut of the new Bentley Suite represents a thoughtful co-branding of the two well known names, each equally associated with luxury and quality. The Bentley Suite offers St. Regis guests the opportunity to experience the essence of Bentley, delivered for the first time ever in a luxury hotel format.
The suite offers a living room and a dining room along with a master bedroom and one and a half baths within a spacious 1700 square feet, all appointed with custom designed furniture and fittings evoking the Bentley style. From the moment you step into the suite, the rich smell of leather offers a gentle reminder of just where you are. Bentley leathers are used generously throughout.
The 15thfloor corner suite is entered through double doors into a foyer with black leather floor tile where you’re greeted with a stitched leather wall and a entry table which structurally mimics the shape of a Bentley dashboard. Khakis, creams and taupes dominate, complemented by shiny wood veneers. The custom sleigh bed is finished with one of Bentley’s signature burl veneers. A round mirror on the wall evokes the styling of a Bentley wheel. And even the entry door lever to the suite is made of the same material that is used in a Bentley engine.
The Suite rate begins at $9,500, but apparently the price hasn’t discouraged potential guests, as it is booked through the end of the year. Because this is the St. Regis, and they want the suite’s guests to have the full Bentley experience, they offer complimentary use of their new house car, the 2013 St. Regis Bentley Mulsanne, the first one in North America, within a 10 block radius of the hotel. And of course guests will enjoy the traditional St. Regis Butler Service as well as an in-suite champagne bar. Now that’s style and sophistication, both on the road and in the room.
