New York, NY (December 3, 2013) – The St. Regis New York has completed its extensive renovation to its guestrooms, suites and public spaces. To it, John DeLucie has joined the King Cole Bar & Salon at The St. Regis New York, ushering in a new era of glamor 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.
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.
Renovation will bring new luster to the hotel’s exclusive collection of designer suites: Bentley, Tiffany and Dior Suites while maintaining their unique and beloved bespoke décor.
The treasured King Cole Bar, Manhattan’s most storied meeting place, will see expansion into the King Cole Bar & Salon, where an extensive lounge will feature a dramatic open fireplace.
With the debut of John DeLucie at The King Cole Bar & Salon, the hotel will offer an unrivaled dining experience that is quintessentially Manhattan. The new restaurant will feature modern American cuisine with an international twist, reflecting the rich cultural mix that is New York City.
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.
Additionally, every bathroom in the entire hotel will be renovated, refurbished, and updated to create a spa-like atmosphere paired with the latest technology.
Engaging a new generation of luxury travelers and tastemakers, the St. Regis brand will debut the new The St. Regis New York: the foundation for all St. Regis properties around the world. For more information, please visit: StRegisNewYork.com
